Haven't eaten here in a while and can recall being unimpressed before. Glad I tried it again as the food was pretty good. It's nothing amazing but it's a step up from pub food at a decent enough price. The tomato salad starter with olives and blue cheese is really rather good. Main course of fish and chips was nice...

Had a really pleasant meal here recently. I had heard very good reports about this restaurant / bar and when the opportunity arose to visit I certainly wasn't disappointed. It's a busy, large but extremely well run establishment. We arrived a bit before our appointed time but the manager found us a table. The staff were very efficient and food... More

Had a work lunch here last week, we were quickly seated, orders taken, food was out and very tasty. Often in the lunch time rush places can let you down, but not here! Excellent portions too, so great value for money!

My partner and I went here without any high expectations - the reviews are pretty variable, so it's hard to gauge. Staff were friendly on arrival, and when we had a question about the menu, the waitress was very helpful and clear. Food was great - I had the lamb shank, and my partner had a fish dish. Both came...

I went here recentlywith high expecting have only heard good reviews however our overall experience was not very good. Firstly greeting by the barn on our arrival was less than welcoming or enthusiastic. After ordering drinks we asked for menus to a response of "there should be some about". Not very helpful to say the least. The staff in general... More

I'm never disappointed with Harbourmaster. I've been there several times and my friends and family love the place. They don't save on food and you don't get less just because you're on a voucher. Yummy food and helpful staff. For my last visit I got a table at the window as I requested and I was very happy with that.... More
