We had a great family evening celebrating my wife’s birthday (early). Catrin liked after us superbly whilst Ludo went all out to make my wife a special birthday desert treat which he personally served up; if you want to know what it was - sign up for Valentines night 👌👍

Main courses were great, unfortunately desserts were awful - sticky toffee pudding was burnt on the outside and dry inside, mousse was so overcooked that when I put the spoon in there was nothing in the centre and it just shrivelled down to resemble a piece of leather. Waiting staff were wonderful but the same cannot be said for the gent on the front desk. He did reimburse for the desserts but his attitude was not great, some lessons in customer service would be beneficial.

The food was delicious. We did ask for a bit more veg and gravy but it never arrived. Your Maître’d is lovely and welcoming. We shall be returning for Sunday lunch and will also come and try the bar and Evening meals. A little pricier than other places but the saying “you get what you pay for” definitely applies here. Yum!

We come back to the Harbourmaster as often as we can. It has that incredible ability to combine all that you expect from a superb boutique hotel with the atmosphere and bustle of popular, lively local gastro pub. An absolute gem.

Lovely food with very cheerful and attentive (but not overbearing) service. Those that continually decry the younger generation about their work ethic and outlook need to dine here! Looking forward to our next visit.

Sadly this last visit was no so brilliant, my soup was tepid and I had to ask for it to be re heated. Ummmm doesn't look good when I had to walk with the dish to find a waitress. (we were sitting in the far back table)

The service provided by all members of staff was impeccable so friendly and engaging. A real team effort. The cleanliness of the bedroom and the nice little touches was noticeable. The ambiance of the restaurant and liveliness of the bar were also highlights. This is a hotel of which you should be very proud. As a group of 5 we had a wonderful and memorable stay. Faultless in all respects.
