Children are well catered for with kid sized meals served in a... read more

Good basic, everyday fish restaurant with helpful and friendly staff. Quality of food is really good, freshly fried and good portion size. Staff always try to accommodate however busy the restaurant is. Worth being a customer

Newly refurbished, Harbour Lights does the best fish & chips in town, and has great views over the harbour. This restaurant is family run, and it is evident in the pride they take in their business. I am a guest house owner, and I always recommend it to my guests. There's nothing better, on a sunny day, than to grab... More

Couldn't decide between this place and Rick Steins. Used the reviews to help make up my mind. Having waited ages to finally get the meals, watching the server smother the meals in salt ( why we can't put it on ourselves I don't know ) we walked to the car park next door to eat. Opening the box was dismayed... More

Pete F, Owner at Harbour Lights Restaurant, responded to this review

Hello! Thank you for reviewing us on tripadvisor. Apologies for being busy, we can't always help being popular. We do serve a takeaway and a restaurant, and that means we will not be able to do everything in 5 minutes during peak times. If this meant you having to wait a few extra minutes for your food I do apologise.... More
