What a fab pub to visit. Feels like you're sitting in a village somewhere in Ireland having a pint or a pimms. The meals are solid and hearty but make sure you have an appetite as they a big. Great value for money and excellent service.

This is a very authentic feeling pub with great beer. The food lets it down a bit by just being deep fried stuff pretty much. Always busy though!

If you want a pub lunch, and friendly, helpful staff you should try the Rose and Shamrock. In summer cool in winter a roaring fire. Recently went for my husbands birthday with family. We had the steak, a curry, nacho's and a platter at the start and nothing at the end. Despite its large capacity the nooks and layout makes... More

Called as it was only place open on bank holiday food ok but nothing spectacular, air conditioning was too cold even for a couple of brits. One thing I did not like they asked to keep my credit card until we finished so that we did not do a runner,won't be going back.

First time eating out in Havelock North food was fantastic and staff made us feel very welcome. When we went looking for another place to eat a day later nothing came close to Rose and Shamrock so we went back and were not disappointed, food was amazing with super fast service.

Always come here for dinner when we visit Napier. I was tossing up between pasta and bangers and mash, I was very happy with my bangers and mash! The gravy was so good! Great place to eat, yes it is always busy but that is a sign of great food!

Love this place. It is busy on Sunday night so pays to get there early for dinner. Meal was generous size, good value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful. Kid friendly and a great place to unwind after a stressful day.

We went on a Sunday night so had to have the Sunday roast. It didn't disappoint with what you would expect of a roast! There were hordes of people so tables were a bit in short supply. No problem for the friendly locals, many fife ring to move on and stand by the bar to finish their drinks, or move... More
