    The Harbour Inn is warm welcoming Inn/restaurant serving a range of dishes to suit most tastes. As we were by the sea we chose fish and were not disappointed, the food was freshly prepared, great presentation and good value.

    I went on a Monday afternoon with two friends for lunch. Great menu with 6 or 7 delicious sounding dishes and a specials board. We had a fabulous view from our window table in the bar area. The waiting staff were excellent and knowledgeable about the food. We had bouillabaisse, lasagne and chowder, all were freshly made, piping hot and delicious. Finished with some fabulous Bakewell tart and a melt in the mouth decadent chocolate torte. Definitely looking forward to going back.

    Great spot by the harbour. Plenty of space in the bar area and space to eat outside when the weather improves. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Food was really good. The fish of the day a highlight. Our second visit and we will definitely eat here again on our next visit.

    Lovely welcome , staff very helpful and attentive Table for two that we were sat at was very small for plates and glasses to fit on , so felt cramped ! Our roast dinner was ok , meat portion good size but vegetables were very sparse felt like a few more veg would have made the meal worth the price tag .

    Pleasant service, good food, reasonable value. Very few tables have views and the back of the restaurant is a little claustrophobic. We enjoyed it and would happily come again or recommend to others.

    We had a most delicious meal, we were given a choice of tables as my partner uses hearing aids and he needs less noise. The service was exemplary, everything we asked for was provided, I like a specific drink which they provided with no questions asked, I asked for bread to go with my meal which was immediately procured. I look forward to returning the next time we are that way.

    We booked our table online for 8pm on Wed 17th Jan. On arrival we were told that the kitchen would close in 5 min which meant a big rush for us. It was very quiet. I guess on a cold windswept night in January it's what you would expect but I had a sailing club meeting and a hot meal was what I was looking forward to. The service was very good and helpful and the bouillabaisse that we had was delicious. When we booked online it would have been helpful if you had told us that you were not serving food after 8pm. We could at least have ordered earlier which would have been good for you and us! Kind regards Helen

    We had fish tapas and bouillebasse, which was just the thing to have on a freezing January evening. Very quiet but staff were attentive and personable. Wine list had good choice and good value. We really enjoyed the meal. Parking was easy, once we had worked out where the restaurant was.

    We had the most delicious lunch here! The fish pie was to die for! Slightly awkward moment when one of our party poured some water from a flask into a small dog bowl for their pooch and was told off (despite the floor being stone) but once over that we had a great meal with very friendly and efficient staff! Would definitely book again (and water dogs outside)!!😂😂

    A regular haunt when in the area, late lunch slots have always been good for food quality and service - we tried a Saturday night and though everything was 'ok' it wasn't at its best.
