We had a really nice dinner at the Harbour Inn. It didn't matter that the place was very quiet (Thursday) as the food was the highlight of the evening. Lovely fresh fish.

Good honest food - we both had fish pie and it was tasty, as was the side salad. My wife had some olives and I had salt and pepper squid to start - also good. Wine was ok, nothing special. Waiter was friendly and enthusiastic. Service was a little hurried but no complaints.

Scraped in to order lunch at 2.27! Staff were kind and accommodating although they stop lunch at 2.30. We ordered gurnard and plaice as mains. Both were delicious. The gurnard was succulent, meaty and very very fresh, served with artichoke goujons and a butter sauce. You'd be hard pushed to taste better in a fancy London Michelin starred restaurant. The...

Great night, fabulous food! Lobster starter was a new one for me - and was so tasty. Hubby wasn't too keen on his soup sadly, acquired taste I guess. My main of chicken was huge, but so beautifully moist and obviously homemade. Hubby had the beef - Said it was all cooked to perfection. We then shared the raspberry creme... More

We have been eating here for 5 years. Sadly the quality of the food has deteriorated. We used to think it was good value for delicious ingredients but it has become overpriced and the care doesnt seem to be there anymore.

Famished after a long fossil hunt we could not find anywhere to eat at 4pm. Enjoyed fabulous steaks with blue cheese sauce and brilliant, entertaining service from Pearl. Thank you.

We had a lovely meal at the Harbour Inn where we received a warm welcome. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu so we made great choices.. Food was tasty and well presented and we had a lovely chilled bottle of wine. Would definitely recommend it for a cosy evening out..

We had a lovely lunch here and then came back the next day for dinner! Daytime views over the Cobb and the bay are beautiful and it was warm and cozy on a cold winter evening when many other places in Lyme were closed. Delicious food and a relaxed atmosphere and you really feel like you are the seaside -... More
