Was in Nairn for a spa break and decided to check out one of the local eateries for our dinner.Could not have picked a better place, the meal was fantastic and the service was first class.We also had a drink later in the adjoining bar which was very friendly and cosy.Would definitely recommend.

We're thrilled that our new menu is going down so well. The dough for the pizzas is made by hand in our kitchen and the pizzas freshly made to order. Delighted that you enjoyed them. More

Great new menu! Sampled it yesterday. Very reasonably priced. I visit quite often with an autistic young person. Staff are always very accommodating and understanding. Nothing is ever a bother, which makes it a place we visit again and again.

We visited the Havelock for a family meal whilst staying in Nairn Lochloy holiday park and brought our dog. The food was great, especially the steaks and burgers. Our dog was made welcome and he enjoyed a wee bit of my steak too.

Good value bar food in a pub that caters for locals, tourists and family guests alike. Was busy both times we visited, in August as well as in March.

Early evening visit with family. Had macaroni cheese - it was edible but lacked any seasoning, and at £6.40 for macaroni cheese on its own (curly fries were £3.20 extra) rather overpriced for what it was. A drunk sweary bloke at the bar (not staff!) didn't add to the atmosphere. On the plus side, some decent ales are available in... More

Dropped in to watch the rugby and found out it was steak night. £11.99 for a 10oz sirloin with all the trimmings. Steaks arrived on a sizzle plate, cooked to absolute perfection, and the sides were lovely. Best steak we have had in any bar or restaurant in years. Huge compliments to the chef. Would recommend to all carnivores and... More

Went for the first time for a family meal. Food is the standard fare, but none the worse for that. Staff friendly and efficient and meal was reasonably priced too. A decent destination for a meal in homely surroundings, but not really for a 'special' occasion.
