The food was brilliant , fresh , hot and served promptly once we had ordered . the staff were really friendly and helpful . The specials... More

Just visited The Harbour Inn and it was exceptional. Staff were great and drinks and food arrived prompt even though the place was busy. Slow roasted belly of pork was gorgeous and my wife's bouillabaisse the best she's had. A great meal with great attentive staff. Thankyou

This place gets really packed so book if you can but we sat outside on the benches overlooking the beach so was really nice anyway. The food is really good I had the fish pie which was great. But the downside is the drinks are quite expensive although I would still recommend and return myself to this restaurant

Decided to give this place a go due to the reviews on tripadvisor, and the menu looked good and it was busy. All great indications that we were in for some good food. I can't praise the squid starter high enough. Sublime, no wonder they offer a large size as well. We chose mains from the daily blackboard specials menu... More

We got there late 5 minutes before the kitchen closed but we were still able to get a meal. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this restaurant very highly.

This restaurant has two sides, one more casual and one a bit fancier. Nevertheless the menu is the same and it is very good. I had a wonderful dinner of slow cooked lamb shoulder that was out of this world. The wine list is good and there is a good selection of beers and ales. Reservations are strongly recommend. I...

Having arrived in Lyne Regis after the longest drive we needed food and a pint. Nine at night is cut off for the kitchen at The Harbour, my friend and I literally fell through the door and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming. Rather than roll their eyes and huff about how late we were they greeted us as... More
