We were pleased to open our doors to the public on Saturday 30th September 2017. After a lengthy redevelopment and refurbishment process as well as the extra hours put in from all the dedicated staff, the building warrant was signed off on Friday 29th September. To finally open Haig’s has been something of a dream for us and reality certainly set in this weekend with a very busy bar and restaurant on both Saturday and Sunday.

The response from locals has been very positive and this was clearly shown over the weekend with lots of comments and online reviews, like the ones below:

“Great place and food. Very welcoming. Will definitely be back for more.”

“The most up and coming place to be... plush comfortable surrounding...elegant yet earthy style. Very attentive staff and completely outstanding food”

“Such a fabulous venue. Perfect for nights with friends or date nights.  The food is delicious, the cocktail menu is perfect. Just gorgeous, highly recommended. Cannot wait to go back.”

The full menu was available, carefully recreated by our chef, serving steaks to salads including the very popular roast dinners on a Sunday. For children there is a menu just for them, which includes a fresh smoothie and ice cream. The menu is split into Breakfast, Bar and Restaurant meals and are all available  by clicking here.

We would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the continued support, which was shown clearly by the volume of visitors on Opening Weekend. We will be shortly launching an  online reservation system , but in the meantime for any bookings please call Haig’s Bar and Restaurant on 01968 677727.
