The seafood we selected was nicely prepared and presented as were our side orders of veg and onion rings.... and what really worked was the house prepared sauce especially... More

Stopped here for dinner one evening during the week. Lovely and cosy restaurant, staff friendly and good wine. I had the fishcakes and they were amazing, some of the best I have ever had. And the desserts are pretty good too.

We ate in here on Thursday evening, we booked ahead, as the restaurant did seem to get busy after we arrived. We ate off the early bird menu, which suited us both, with good selection. We both had soup to start, which was plentiful. He had the haddock, which was very fresh. I had the chicken which too was nice.... More

We stopped in for dinner - I was craving pizza and the Harbour restaurant did not disappoint. The pizza was the perfect size for one person and was absolutely delicious with capers, tomatoes, and cheese. My husband got a pasta dish that he said was very good. Loved the atmosphere here with the fire going and the quiet ambiance. I... More

We had a meal here tonight. The food was typically priced but the quality was Stunning. Absolutely stupendous. It took long enough to arrive that you know it's freshly cooked and I must say (and I'm quite particular) that this was stunning. I had naturally smoked haddock with a curry sauce. What seemed like a strange combination worked to perfection.... More
