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.

I felt very safe in these Covid times. Well spaced out tables. Friendly staff. Have been many times and I love the Adnams Hop house lager and fish and chips. Delicious!

Even in these very difficult times, staff are amazing, polite and professional. We had a meal and drinks and not at any time, did we feel at risk. The restaurant and facilities were spotless. We shall return. Thank you one and all.

Plaice & chips was beautifully cooked and piping hot and we (incl kids and dog) were given a warm welcome. Highly recommend!

Unfortunately we found the pub to be understaffed, resulting in poor service. We also found the pub lacked any atmosphere. We would not return.

A pleasant dining experience which we will doubtless repeat in the near future. Staff were attentive but not overbearing. Bread was fresh and Adnams very quaffable. Many thanks

We felt well looked-after by welcoming staff, COVID safety was well organised, the food was very tasty and it was the best chocolate brownie we’ve ever had!

The pasta was particularly good, better than last visit, my friends small portion of tiger prawns was a little underwhelming and the Broadside lacked life and head.

We have been to the Harbour many times before with excellent food but on this occasion the fish and chips were not up to there usual standard. Chips were not good. Hence the lower star ratings
