Went for food with a group of friends. The food was delicious, really tasty and well presented. Unfortunately, the service and facilities majorly let it down. There were 4 of us but we were only given two menus. I had to order water 3 times before finally being given half a glass of water. When the drinks order arrived (minus... More

Me and my sister dine in at the Harbourmaster on Tuesday evening, when we enter the bar, I freak out a little bit, I don’t want to sound neurotic, but they should put an air freshener to eliminate the vomiting smell, thank goodness they have a separate area for people who want to have a relax dinner. Staffs were very... More

The Harbourmaster is a bar and restaurant that stands out as an impressive old brick building with a clock tower. Inside the spaces are large and the atmosphere is good. There's a reasonably good range of beers and drinks at the bar. Having eaten the bar food here some years ago and being quite happy with it I was looking... More

My family and I ate at the Harbourmaster last weekend. I had not visited the Harbourmaster before and was not sure of what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by a staff member within seconds of entering the building and were seated straight away. There was a decent kids menu, and the adults menu had a... More

Used a Rush Deal voucher to have dinner here. Food was not bad... roasted vegetables turned out to be potatoes carrot and turnip... not what i expected. I had a chicken Korma which was served in two seperate bowls... didn't get a plate so ended up using the plate that the bowls were on. Staff was friendly.

We visited the Harbourmaster on a Monday evening, the tables in the restaurant are nicely spaced out so it doesn't feel cramped even when busy. Service was excellent and the food was cooked beautifully. My partner had the cod, juicy soft flakes that just melted in your mouth. I had a medium rare t-bone steak, again cooked to perfection. The... More
