For the chance to eat on the beach, or sit on a veranda overlooking the beach, The Harbour Inn is the best spot. They have picnic tables across the path from them, which are right on the beach. I opted for a table on the veranda, while most of the customers were content inside, which was packed and looked like... More

Enjoyed our meal here in the restaurant. A little disappointed that the specials on the night weren't nearly as interesting as those shown for the day on the web-site. Hard to recommend dishes when when we chose from the specials, but everything was well-cooked and reasonably priced, perhaps a little under-seasoned. Our mains were an excellent slow-roast belly pork with... More

We had two very small, cold children who were hungry. They opened at 11am and we went in at about 10past. There was already another couple in there having coffee. We were let in and sat ourselves down at a table. No staff greeted us or asked if we would like menus or drinks as obviously far too busy getting... More

I love this place brings back childhood/teenage memories! Sit on the little terrace and watch the tourists go by whilst enjoying a pint of local Otter ale! I always enjoy the crab sandwiches

Bartender was really friendly, knew exactly what we wanted without even asking! Really like this pub, was nice to sit out the front with the heaters on and relax and have a beer. I definitely recommend The Harbour Inn!

The food from the Harbour Inn is always top notch and we were fortunate to be seated in the bar with a great view at to sea! I thoroughly recommend the fish pie as each time we visit I'm always tempted to try something else, but end up ordering the fish pie as it Is truly delicious.

Had a decent enough meal here at reasonable cost. If I wanted to gripe maybe a bit disappointing to be given frozen chips in this sort of place. Nice fresh seafood and good service though. However, we found ourselves eating in the bar area which would not be for everyone. The edge was knocked off our evening by a garrulous... More

I had the fish pie which was excellent. It turned out to be the wrong decision because she ordered the mussels and has raved about them ever since. The best she has ever had. Nothing more to say!
