Far too long since our last visit. Have not been to the General Havelock for some time and had forgotten how good it is. Excellent home cooked lunch at reasonable price. Very pleasant service and easy parking.

We visited this Inn whilst on holiday in October. We booked for Sunday lunch and the choice was Beef or Chicken. The food was very good and everything was homemade, even the bread rolls. I would definitely recommend eating here.

Went for lunch with couple of young kids, no kids menu but offered to cook virtually anything for the kids and go over to the co-op next door to get any ingredients for us. Excellent service and food was excellent.
