Good crab for lunch

We wanted a crab meal for lunch and we got a good fresh crab each in this simple, unpretentious, pleasant restaurant. The food was good and the location is perfect, right next to the river wall.

My OH and I enjoyed our haddock and chips here last week. For the price the fish was large. The downside was the packet sauces and the fact that to get their home-made tartare it would cost you an extra 90pence! The service was friendly.

The crab sandwiches here are great-very well worth the visit. Sat outside in the sunny garden and had a first class lunch.

Have eaten twice at this establishment on our weeks holiday in Lynmouth and it is fantastic! The fish and chips were gorgeous, we also sampled plaice and deep fried seafood. All meals delicious and well presented. I have to be honest, I found prices resonable and less than expected for popular holiday location. The staff were reallly helpful and friendly,... More

We came on a day trip and stopped here for lunch. The fish and chips were freshly cooked and delicious. I would definitely recommend and if we are ever back down that way we'll definitely be going back.

Well prepared fish & chips. The whole haddock was so delicious that I barely talked to my wife during lunch. Well recommended.

A cold day in Lynmouth and, as usual, we had forgotten to have any Breakfast There were hardly any visitors about and yet "Fish on the Harbour" set to and produced some of the best Chips I've ever had - Pipping hot, tasty and really crunchy - Brilliant

Had a very nice late lunch her whilst on holiday in the area. Very clean and polite staff. The chips were particularly excellent and it was nice to have some more interesting vegetarian options. I had the Beetroot Burger which was very good.
