    Initial feelings were a bit mixed, the head waiter did not appear to be very welcoming, did his job very efficiently but did not create a warm ambiance Tables for a couple are a bit cramped so it’s a bit of a balancing act with food and wine Having said that the food was excellent and well presented

    Service was poor. Food was average but overpriced. The manager who served us was unfriendly and unwelcoming and seemed totalling disinterested in us. We won’t be back.

    The service was excellent with servers being attentive and professional. Food too was excellent especially the seafood cocktail . Being right on the sea shore made it a good venue with plenty going on but not noisy. It would have been perfect [and will be again] when the sand dredging has finished on that part of the beach. We would definitely visit again when next in Lyme Regis.

    Seated quickly as we had booked. The Staff were helpful and pleasant. The Mussels were amazing as too was the fish pie! Nice bottle of white to wash it down that was reasonably priced. Couldn’t fault the food wine or service which is probably why it was so busy!

    We are local people but had never been to the Harbour before. We found the service fast and pleasant even though the place was full, we didn’t have to wait long. The Fish Pie was delicious my Husband said and the duck I had, fell off the bone. a very pleasant evening and we will go back. Would recommend booking.

    Only seating was available in bar area but it was fine, just an extension of the restaurant but a few people coming in to order drinks at the bar. Service was excellent as was the food. Friendly staff. Good standards too, told a young lad to put his top on even in bar area. Definitely eat here again if in the area

    Our table was right beside the bar where there was a gathering of very drunk people, so it was quite unpleasant until they were moved on. But there was obviously an ongoing queue of people there as it's a bar, which is fair enough, but it's disappointing as we had booked some weeks before and there were other tables that were further from the bar that would have made our experience more pleasurable. That aside, the food was really tasty. So if you're booking, maybe just ask not to have that table.

    We dined at The Harbour Inn twice during our holiday, both times the food and service was excellent. First evening was quieter as it was out of season, the second evening was really busy as it was half term, however the service and food was equally good on both occasions. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return next time we are over this way.
