“It just gets better and better”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We have been going to this restaurant for years and it is one of our favourites. The food is always excellent. Fresh, well presented and piping hot at the table. We particularly enjoy the English-style Sunday lunch of roast beef, yorkshire pud, and all the trimmings. Delicious! There is a lively atmosphere, thanks to hostess Innes. Never a dull moment. We can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

“UNBEATABLE EXCELLENCE”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I have eaten at Havercrofts on many occasions and never have I come away disappointed. The menu is varied and caters for all tastes. Brydon is a chef of note and Havercrofts wouldn't be Havercrofts without Innes and her irrepressible sunny nature, sense of humour and repartee. It is undoubtedly my favourite place to be - I adore the setting, the ambience, the food and the owners - what more could anyone ask for!

“Fantastic lunch in a stunning setting”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

An absolute must - we had one of the best dining experiences at Havercrofts. The stunning setting and relaxed atmosphere under pinned by the excellent hosts Innes and Brydon provide you with the complete package. The food is delicious and with generous portion sizes and amazing presentation you will not be disappointed. The blue cheese panna cotta will blow you away! There is also the opportunity to but some of Brydon's homemade delicassies from their pantry such as fudge, shortbread, jams all really yummy!! We can't wait to go back in October and this will definitely be our first stop.

“We arrived as patrons and left as friends!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

My husband and I had the most amazing lunch at Havercrofts a few weekends ago. Everything about our long lazy lunch was just perfect.We enjoyed starters, mains and desserts and the profiteroles that we devoured were particularly memorable! I would suggest going at 12 and spending the afternoon there, enjoying the view and taking it easy. Thanks Innes and Brydon for such a lovely lunch- We will be back soon, but next time with baby in tow.
