A quick lunch today during the second lockdown. The Harbour did brilliantly with absolutely outstanding fish and chips (crunchy chips, beautiful soft cod in a lovely coating) served quickly and efficiently. Please support these local businesses, they need our help.

Lovely atmosphere, No wonder we had to book and only secured the last table at the back with 24 hours notice. The service couldn’t be faulted and the fish of the day was cooked to perfection. One not to be missed.

We have been using the Harbour Inn every time we stay in Lyme Regis. It’s a great place with attentive staff and great food. Plus stunning location!

We had lunch outside on the beach front in the enclosed area across the path. The fish platter was fantastic, especially the prawn and lobster cocktail and tempura mackerel. Great friendly service and kids meals were immensely enjoyed. This place totally beat expectations for a Bank Holiday weekend in one the most popular spots. We’ve eaten here before and it was good then, so it wasn’t a fluke. Thoroughly recommended.

Had a booking but left standing unnoticed at the door for quite a while whilst staff ran around running food and serving tables. A dedicated greeter would really benefit here. Once seated, the food and service really delivered. The bouillabaisse was delicious, would definitely go again just for that.Robert Cozens20:58 09 Jun 21We had lunch outside on the beach front in the enclosed area across the path.

We had mussels to start and fish and chips for main. The food tasted so fresh and was delicious. The large mussles was a great sized portion, as was the fish and chips. Great covid measures in place, with plenty of sanitising stations, all staff wearing face coverings. Had to wear a mask when not seated (to go toilet/waiting for table) which I thought was great. Tables sanitised between customers. All staff were extremely polite, attentive and helpful. Views were amazing. Would recommend booking as was consistently busy inside and out whilst we were there.Jessica Heap13:47 24 Sep 20Great good, beach front location, attentive staff. Pleased to see some real attention being given to covid measures with thorough clean down between covers and social distancing in place. 👍Garry Evans18:11 06 Sep 20I cannot rate this place enough. The fish was incredible, the chips were perfect and the setting is relaxed. Have been multiple times now and each and every time they never let me down.Nicholas Sarll14:16 15 Feb 20Surprisingly good. I have found that seaside restaurants can be indifferent. This place served up a tasty vegetarian meal--butternut squash tarjine. Recommended.Stewart Wilner18:21 10 Feb 20Never had a bad meal here. Good service as well. Lovely atmosphereSara Ward10:23 12 Jan 20What a little gem! Decided to go here on a whim and glad we did.

Great service - waiters and waitresses are well drilled and attentive. My wife said that her plaice dish was the best piece of fish she has ever had.

Busy place so it's best to book.Neil Smith09:25 18 Aug 19An excellent lunchtime meal 🍴 for the four of us great staff excellent food at a reasonable price. The place was busy with locals and tourists which is testament to the quality of the pubPeter Woolridge22:43 07 Jul 19A large section of sailing yachts, you can walk around on the harbour wall, the views all around are lovely to at.paul dixon16:11 07 Jul 19Went down with the wife last night... Not the cheapest place to eat in lyme but the food was very nice and worth every penny. The staff are very friendly too and more than happy to help...

We will return for certain.Richard Gregory22:49 07 Feb 19Really nice place on the harbour. I met up with friends for coffee and a brownie. The staff were attentive and really friendly. The coffee they make is really good. The homemade brownie with cream was gorgeous and just what I needed after a long coastal walk. There's outdoor seating as well which is great for the long evenings. Definately worth a visit.Robert Saunders19:22 19 Jan 19Always a good vibe in there. Few nice ales on the bar, staff are always great. And the food is reliably decent. I had the Hake and a pudding.

Also, the service was second to none, the lovely young person who waited on us was excellent, attentive and very helpful, in terms of gluten free, and other needs. Two dessert spoons, no bother, and great advice on the tastiest desserts... We'll definitely be back!Jane Joyce16:59 30 Nov 18The fish soup is stunning!!!

Well worth a visit if in the area.Michael17:05 08 Jun 18An Excellent May Day fish lunch at a fairly busy venue. Luckily, my lady friend and I were quite early, checking in at around half past midday as the joint was rocking by one thirty. The service was prompt, friendly and efficient and the food delicious, served by cheerful young ladies. The price was reasonable, considering the fine quality of the fare. As someone said once, we’ll be back.Alan Argent18:35 01 May 18Lovely atmosphere. Family friendly. In a great spot. With a decent menu.Neil Hannaford19:49 29 Mar 18I went in because of the high rating and almost went out again when I saw the interior. I'm glad I decided to stay because the food was absolutely brilliant. There is outside seating both on the terrace and on the beach. If you are looking for a decent atmosphere, go somewhere else (e.g. the Volunteer or the Royal Lion).Raffael Hirt07:29 27 Mar 18Had lunch today, very nice food and great staff.Sue Brown16:13 23 Mar 18Good food, good beer and welcoming staff, who allow dogs in the large lower seating area. This is good because over friendly dogs are not welcome at everyone's table, but our Daisy's big, brown, starving eyes can melt someone at 30 paces so she is happy!Christopher Plant08:06 07 Mar 18Lovely location excellent food and friendly staffVictoria Stocqueler00:43 16 Feb 18We haf an excellent lunch here 13th Jan.
