                                                        Lovely meal in great location. Pity the sandwich menu is not served on a Sunday as wanted a crab sandwich but had the roast beef instead which was good.

                                                        We arrived early, but one of the party had to go and add more money for parking, They took our drink order and then waited for the other person to arrive before asking for the food order. The food was very tasty, but some of the beef had gristle in it, however there was enough anyway. The Staff were very good.

                                                        Harbour Inn well known to us. Usually reliable service and food. Fairly quiet on that evening. I had bouillabaise, my party had fish pies and Gurnard fish. All up to standard.

                                                        Cramped on a small table no room to dine comfortably. Starter soup was over priced and far to much garlic although they did take the price of the soup off. Steak asked for well done was medium to well at best. No Sunday roast menu

                                                        There is absolutely nothing better value for a light meal out than Harbour Inn fish soup and a pint of Otter Ale. If you want to splash out the scallops we had on Friday were excellent. We choose the bar area so we can take our dog. The staff were lovely and very attentive. I felt so sorry for the people who hadn’t booked being turned away . . .

                                                        We went for New Years Eve meal and thought service might be slower, but no service was good and staff friendly. The food was excellent and well presented. We always eat here when in Lyme. If there was anything to complain about there was a noisy barking dog in the bar area. On another evening we ate in the bar and several people walked in without masks. As a vulnerable person it made me uncomfortable.

The food was fantastic and the service was excellent Would definitely recommend it and will definitely be back

                                                        We both enjoyed everything we ate, so well done to the chef. Service was friendly and efficient. The one minor disappointment was the dining room itself, which could have been comfier and more welcoming.

                                                        On a dark & drizzly out of season Tuesday evening, the friendly greeting was much appreciated. My starter of a fish platter for 1, all my favourites presented beautifully, lobster, prawn, mackerel & salmon, a delightful choice for a single person & set the tone for my main meal of a beautiful lamb rump. Cooked to perfection, served pink with a glossy sauce. Will definitely return.

                                                        We were so pleased to see that The Harbour Inn was open on a sunday night and we were welcomed and showed to our table. The food was excellent as usual and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening surrounded by the most beautiful artwork on the walls, We can`t wait to go back. Simon and Lindy Stracey

                                                        Great location ! The restaurant is tastefully decorated and well laid out. Good menu and very good service with friendly and helpful staff . We had to move the time of our table which was handled easily with no trouble. We took our three grandchildren who enjoyed their food and drink as did we! Highly recommend.

                                                        Good food, but atmosphere spoilt by a staff member shouting and swearing in the kitchen. Basic hygiene could be better - staff should not be shaking out and retying their hair in the dining room.

                                                        We ate at The Harbour Inn four times recently on a short break to Lyme, returning each time because of the very friendly welcome, excellent service and lovely local seafood. They also served meat and vegetarian dishes which sounded delicious.

                                                        Food was amazing and price was good for the quality of food. The service was excellent and could not fault. Maybe if sat in main restaurant ambience would have been excellent also, but were extremely busy at this time. Would definately go again well worth a visit.
