Surprised not to have problems booking at 11.30 on Easter Sunday. Courteous reception. Restaurant filled up during the next hour. Not at all noisy. Excellent menu. Nicely presented, original dishes. Drinkable house red, and the cider was excellent. The service was pleasant and efficient. The prices are about what you'd expect. We'll certainly go again when we want an entertaining... More

The set menu included 2 or 3 courses. I had the crab cakes which were delicious and the Garlic Roast Chicken. Desert choices were good as... More

Went to the haven for a private function and it was lovely. The room was perfect for a sit down for 30 of us but it does seat more. The food was superb, so was the service and the decor. We had a bit of a dance too.

Love Havens. If you're looking for a stylish evening out, this restaurant is worth a try. Great service, delicious food, my steak was so tender , barely needed a knife. My partner had the sea bass, which he loved. We would have loved to have had a cocktail in the bar before our meal, but it was rammed, disappointing, but... More

A group of us met for lunch and we were seated in the restaurant although some only wanted bar snacks. The waiter was very attentive laid a table for all of us and generally took good care of us. The menu was varied and I chose from the set lunch menu and the food was excellent, the beef in the... More

I've been here a handful of times and I should really increase this! For a local restaurant it really is decent. The food is great, never disappointing and so is the service. I would definitely recommend.

Very good place to go for a special occasion. Quite pricey, but worth it. Been here both for quiet meal, and with a group of friends

I have been to The Haven many times for dinner and for a friends private function. I called to enquire about hosting my own engagement party at the venue and made a suggestion to hire the whole right hand side of the bar for drinks and canapés for friends which I was told was a minimum spend of £1,200.. I... More

I am very sorry that you felt I was very rude when I actually only was trying to advise you what can be done and what not, Its impossible for us to have a party of 50 people in the main restaurant on a Saturday night, it would be far to disruptive for all other guests, you told me that... More
