Popped in for early evening meal

Visited the Harbour Inn a number of times, food is consistently good, always fresh fish and shellfish on the special board, scallops were good tonight. Always a busy pub, worth booking especially in the summer months, bank holidays etc. staff always friendly and helpful.

Good service, great food and lively atmosphere. Fresh fish on the menu and a great range of beers. Make sure to book a table at the weekends.

Not cheap for what you get. Food not special, place was busy, waiters pleasant, fish dishes were overpriced for what you get. Wouldn't be going back.

Very much enjoyed our meal at the Harbour Inn. We took a visiting friend and hoped that the good reviews we had seen would be borne out and we were not disappointed. Two of us ordered fish from the specials board and both were imaginative and delicious. More than we would normally pay for a meal out but we will... More

We have had a number of very disappointing meals over the last couple of years. We decided to give the Harbour Inn another go as hadn't eaten here in... More

I again had Bouillabaisse and this had a great range of fish in it and tasted fresh and well made. Open fish sandwiches were enjoyed by everyone else and these... More

Enjoyed two visits to to the Harbour Inn while in Lyme Regis. Fantastic to sit in the beer garden by the beach and enjoy the sun while having a drink. The restaurant is good value. Menu is a little limited by food is very filling and tasty. Price is reasonable Peter, Brisbane Australia
