A Mediterranean blue sky and fantastic weather helped this lovely evening meal. The west facing quayside tables look over the harbour in the sun. The people at other tables were all all enjoying themselves too with some great looking burgers being served. Good food for us, we shared a fish platter with crispy whitebait, giant prawns,delicious squid and plaice, garlic... More

Having returned last week from this amazing little corner of the world we have already booked to go back in the summer! The Harbour Inn, Porthleven is a beautiful little hotel that offers all that you need for an amazing break by the sea. The food is amazing and the staff are all so friendly can't wait to be back!...

Called in here this afternoon with my family for some lunch, the food arrived quickly and was very tasty. I had the burger and my husband and my daughter had fish, both were served with lovely chunky chips. Staff very friendly! Will definitely visit again next time we're in the area.

Once again we chose the relaxing hotel, perfectly catered for from our early arrival and helpful early check-in to the immaculately attired bay fronted room. The staff and management could not do enough to ensure our week long stay was stress free (in between our long drives there and back). Excellent pub style food and free evening entertainment with bands... More

I was walking the South West Coast Path and decided to call in to sample the beer and food. The young staff were very welcoming and helpful. I ordered a dinner andvtried to order extras but the young lady on the bar said there is plenty with your main meal and more is not needed... She was right... A generous... More

Spent a few days down here with a friend. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were shown to our rooms which were very nice, the views were bad as we had back rooms but to be honest how long do you really spend in your rooms?? Had a lovely walk along the harbour along to...

We visited Porthleven last week and popped in a few times for lunch, which was tasty and good value for money. We also popped in for an afternoon drink and the staff were so welcoming and friendly and helpful to accommodate our baby. Perfectly placed at the harbour. Free WiFi is a bonus.

4 of us stayed in a holiday cottage in Porthleven over Christmas (great place) We ate in the Harbour Inn on 2 occasions and the food was excellent. It is not a posh restaurant but the food was tasty and good value, with friendly staff.

Love this place - the location - the food - the staff - everything. Perfectly situated in the harbour, with comfortable surroundings, lovely staff and readily available pub grub. They've done well recuperating from the terrible storms last year and this is appreciated by those of us who know how very hard that was. Well done and see you again... More
