Pier at Harwich; Harbourside Restaurant

The Quay, Harwich, Essex, CO12 3HH
Find this comfortable seafood restaurant on the quay, within a mile of the ferry port - on the first floor of this seaside hotel. You can enjoy views of the harbour and Stour and Orwell estuaries while you relax over your meal.

The menu is seasonal, but expect the likes of ‘Home-Smoked Salmon with Lemon, Capers & Shallots'; 'River Deben Mussels Mariniere ' or 'Seared Mackerel on a Thai Papaya Salad with Birds Eye Chilis & Peanuts' among the starters.

Perhaps to be followed by 'Mushroom Tortellini with Truffled Pecorino, Pink Radish & Brown Butter Crumb'; 'Fish & Shellfish Frittata; 'South Coast Grilled Lemon Sole - eith Meuriere or with Bearnaise Sauce' or a variety of Steaks from the Grill.

Desserts maintain the high standard, with maybe 'Baked Black Cherry Cheesecake with Kirsch'; 'Iced Lemon and Lime Parfait with home-made Citrus Marmalade' and 'Warm Apple and Date Pudding with Toffee Sauce and Maple Syrup Ice Cream' to tempt you.

There’s a downstairs bistro ‘Ha’penny Bistro’ offering a less ambitious menu in a less formal setting, but is excellent for family dining.

In fine weather, you can eat outside at the ‘Ha’penny Bistro’ only
