Opening to rave reviews back in 1996, the shabby-chic Havelock Tavern is a long-serving beacon of the gastropub genre – and ‘one of the best’, according to a well-informed regular. It hasn’t changed at all over the years, and still feels like a proper boozer with a fabulous blue-tiled frontage, wooden floors, mismatched tables and a range of beers from Adnams, Twickenham Fine Ales and the like. It also delivers some splendid food – so order at the bar from a daily menu that roams freely across Europe and the Far East. Starters of Asian crayfish bisque could give way to pappardelle with a ragù of rabbit and girolles, while puds might promise cream cheese sorbet with granola and berries. Everything is made in-house, including bread. There’s a good-sized patio garden, too.
