Good food

Lovely food. Fresh and a nice outside area. The only issue is the restricted drinks menu. Wine, a very few beers and a few soft.

Got takeaway fish and chips to eat down by the harbour. Absolutely lovely. About £16 for two cod and chips with drinks, so not cheap.

Once again we chose here for our fish and chips and we are glad we did so. This time we went for the Famous 5 option - cod, chips, mushy peas, pot of tea and bread & butter. The fish and batter was perfect, just how we like it. My husband enjoyed the homemade tartar sauce very much! I'd have... More

Very busy, on this Bank Holiday Monday. Fresh fish and chips with peas or similar £11.00. As the name suggests overlooking the harbour-which is a bonus. Cafe type furniture kept clean by busy and attentive staff. Good light batter on the fish and the premises are licensed, so a couple of ales if you fancy that with this staple fodder.... More

Amazing fish and chips - had cod in a light crispy batter (the regular portion is more like a large!). Have yet to see how Rick Stein's fish & chips compares!

I'll start off by saying I've visited Harbour Lights many times over the years and have always found it quite good. Unfortunately not the case this time. We arrived and were seated mid-week lunch time. It was not busy. The table hadn't been wiped down and despite staff watching me wipe it down myself, they did not offer to come... More

We were suggested harbour lights by the owner of our bed and breakfast as it is owned by a local. As true lovers of seafood and keen to always support locals we gave it a go. The place is a take away fish and chip shop with a restaurant attached. We dined in as we were hoping to sample a... More
