Havelock in Marlborough has seen many changes over the years from the goldmining rush, to forestry and timber and now mussel and salmon farming.
A picturesque fishing village nowadays, Havelock is known as the "Green lip mussel capital of the world" and is home to the iconic Mussel Pot Restaurant.
Housed in a building of historical and architectural significance The Mussel Pot has been preparing and serving these tasty little molluscs for years. The menu has increased over time and caters for all tastes and includes steaks, pastas and vegetarian meals but the emphasis has still remained on great local produce and seafood prepared simply and tastefully.
