50% off at General Havelock Inn

The General Havelock Inn is a beautiful venue situated on the banks of the South Tyne in the small village of Haydon Bridge, which is rich with heritage and history. Each seat in the restaurant offers the perfect view of the Haydon Bridge countryside and the river itself.

The chef describes his cuisine as Modern European. He has owned the General Havelock Inn since 1999, creating every meal from scratch. All of his food is homemade and much of the produce used is acquired from the local game and fish resources.

    My wife and use our Tastecard very frequently as we have restaurants local to home which we visit but we also travel around the country on 2 & 3-day breaks so our card is invaluable so we have, possibly, become a little blasé about dining out and thus I am not moved to write reviews unless we have visited somewhere exceptionally good or bad and the General Havelock is decidedly the former. We dined there last night at the beginning of our short break in Northumberland and we couldn't have had a better start. the food was excellent, good range of beers (including Real Ales) and wines and great, friendly service. I would commend this Inn to anyone finding themselves in or near Haydon Bridge/Hexham. The Crayfish Cocktail starter was an interesting twist on the good old Prawn Cocktail, the 'Catch of the Day' was Tuna and was cooked to perfection; of the 'Bread & Butter Pudding I could not find words to adequately describe so will venture no more than to say HAVE IT, even having to forgo the White Chocolate and Raspberry Creme Brulée to so do. Should I ever find myself hereabouts again this will be first on my list of priorities. I am so glad that I have a Tastecard and that the General Havelock is in because otherwise we would never have encountered each other. "

The staff were friendly and so were the locals. I had Salmon & crayfish which was cooked to perfection, my husband had his usual roast beef that was very tasty and my son's roast chicken was lovely. The bar area may look a little old but I think it adds character & we had read the preview reviews & went for the food really. I would defo visit again. "
