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.

We stopped in over half term (during C19) for a late lunch, family of 4. The whole experience was excellent, from the greeting at the door through the entire service. The food was delicious, fairly priced and a good choice. Would happily go back.

Just love this pub. Friendly, attentive service. Great food and a rustic, authentic atmosphere. Was there to hear Boris lock us down again so good luck to the manager and staff. We’ll be back as soon as we can.

The most welcoming staff we have ever encountered! Our waitress’s customer service was second to none. I cannot praise her enough for how lovely, chirpy and helpful she was! I was all customer service was this good, seriously. Thank you.

Slow slow service. Waited over 25 minutes to get a drink. Perhaps the staff could look around to see if anyone needed serving as opposed to just going to one table and going away. Food ok. In the end they did well. Nice atmosphere and a nice evening though.

Booking was really easy and I was impressed with spacing of the tables to allow social distancing. There were three young lads serving and they were all brilliant, polite, friendly and helpful. The chowder was one of the nicest things I have ever tasted!! Fish curry was delicious but maybe should be marked as being hot on the menu as it was just about edibly hot for me but my family said they could have not eaten it as it was too spicy!! Overall we had a great experience and will book again when we are in the area.
