“Nice inexpensive meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

I am a local and usually meet up with my girlfriends once a month here. We just love the Haversham! The service is always great. They have a nice menu selection all reasonably priced. Even the beer and wine menu has a nice selection and again very reasonably priced. There is a large bar area usually with the game on as well as a nice separate dining room area, if you do not want the bar atmosphere.

“Great family dining at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I visit the "Haversham" on a regular basis, food is consistent with a varied menu to please everyone in your party; salads, burgers, to entrees they have it all. This is a great family stop that is not a tourist trap and is kid friendly. Arrive early Fri, Sat, & Sun as you may have to wait after 6:00 pm. They also have a full service bar with numerous flat panel TV's to watch sports.

“Mary would be proud!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

The former Mary's restaurant was a long time favorite restaurant in Westerly known for its friendly service and homemade style food. When it closed we felt the loss... until! The Haversham Tavern not only meets our former expectations but brings it to the 21st Century with creative cuisine in a neighborhood tavern setting. It is a place we can take anyone from grandchildren to aging parents and have everyone be pleased with the food and overall experience. We will miss Mary and her fine team but are pleased to welcome the current owners and staff and wish them well.

“A well dressed sports bar”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

After driving by this beautiful building many times, we selected it for our Easter dinner, assuming that since it is so tastefully done, that we would have a wonderful meal.

When we arrived,the hostess told us that we'd have to sit at a High top table, because she was not allowed to seat couples in the dining room. When we declined the hi top, (thank goodness, because it would have been in the bar' with the 3 giant tvs) the hostess asked someone if she could seat us in the (half empty) dining room, and they said ok....

The dining room is gorgeous, a stone fireplace, and big round tables with Winslow chairs, and glass topped tables. A very classy and appealing place...until, we sat down and saw that under the glass on the table was a huge advertisement for a mosquito control company!!! A frightening picture of a mosquito biting someone/thing, was right between my husband and I. I have never seen anything so repulsive in the seediest diner, let alone a fine restaurant!
Then we were given menus. Ugh!! If we weren't so hungry, we would have left. It was basically an Applebee's menu! Apps: fried mozzarella, clam cakes, nachos, chicken wings... Dinner: BBQ ribs, burgers, pizza, chicken parm.... Yuck!
It took us about fifteen minutes to pick out something we could stomach. Meanwhile, we began to notice the loud television noise from the next room, the bar. The food was mediocre at best. Both the chowder and lobster bisque were slimey and tasted like canned.

What a huge disappointment. The place is basically a sports bar with a pretty dining room, and crappy food. But... The beer mugs are enormous!
So, if that's what you're into, then you will love this spot.

Such a shame, that looks can be so deceiving. We will never return.

“Great Food, Atmosphere, Service!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended by some of the locals. We love to try new places recommend and this was a great place. We stopped in for lunch. We had a buffalo chicken sandwhich with onion rings (well done) & Fish and Chips, coleslaw and sweet potato fries. The lunch was delicious!! The waitress was very friendly and we love that we never had to ask for another drink because she always brought us another drink.

There are big screen TV's all around so if your looking to watch a game this would be a great place! We really enjoyed our meal. We would definitely go back!

Thank Sylvia Z
