About The Harbour Inn

This cosy old inn is steeped in the character of Blackshore fishermen of yonder year and the memorabilia they’ve left behind. It has two cosy wood-panelled bars, which are unusually on two floors, and a dining room.

You wouldn’t expect anything less than the freshest seafood being served when you have a harbour side kitchen.

Here at The Harbour we take great pride in sourcing and serving the very best of the catch of the day, with much of the fish we serve being caught by local fishermen from the Lowestoft fishing boats wherever possible. Of course, there is something for everyone with a variety of non-fishy homemade dishes from the ovens and stoves.

So excited to be back in the Harbour Inn. The staff worked so hard to give us an enjoyable evening. Loved the blue cheese , Adnam’s honey croutons salad , so tasty. When scampi and chips are cooked perfectly you can’t beat it for a pub meal. Well done guys👍

A very enjoyable lunch and both food and service were great. I have not given 5 out of 5 for atmosphere, only because arrangements during Covid take something away from the atmosphere - but that can't be helped; and the location by the river itself creates atmosphere - its a super spot..

Lovely homemade puds.. staff were knowledgable around wine selection and friendly positive staff, only minor issue was that we only had cash which was queried but there was no signage on admission that cash may not be accepted .. this was resolved easily .. definitely would recommend .. lovely food

Courteous, attentive service and delicious food in very pleasant surroundings. A fire as warm as the welcome on a wintery day. The whitebait was cooked to perfection, and the introduction to smoked haddock fish and chips a real delight. Sublime desserts in generous portions. All provided in a carefully managed Covid-secure environment

The food was delicious when we visited on Saturday. Unfortunately, the dining area we were in was cold and I don’t think the tables were far enough apart. However, the service was dire. Took ages for our order to be taken. When the food arrived we were asked if we wanted condiments, which we did, and they never returned with them. We were going to order pudding but it took so long for anyone to never return to us that we didn’t and paid at the door as no-one brought us our bill. Disappointing as for the food we would have returned.
