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.

Usually eat here when staying in Southwold. Fish was wonderful. It was cold outside which meant you couldnt linger over the food but still worth going. Will be nack later in the year when hopefully things will have resumed some normality

Main dish was ok but the 2 sides we had, coleslaw & curry sauce both tasted very perfumed!

Such a nice welcome from shaven headed chap with a great sense of humour. All staff thereafter so nice, attentive and (mostly) jolly. Food was as we expect from the Harbour - delicious not pretentious and more than enough for hungry walkers. We all thought you’d done remarkably well despite the restrictions u der which you were operating. We’ve been coming for 20 years and hope to continue for a further 20 (age, decrepitude and forgetfulness notwithstanding)!

In the cold on the terrace we were looked after with kindness, enjoyed a fine meal and were helped to feel as normal as possible. Thank you to all the staff for being there, being thoughtful and willing.

Beautiful location, delicious food and super friendly staff! They are definitely doing their best in the re opening and I’m sure it’ll be even better when they’re fully open! You won’t be disappointed with dinner here.
