The Pier Hotel: "Harwich's Upscale Eatery!" Harwich Restaurant Tip by johngayton

Harwich Restaurants: 6 reviews and 15 photos

  View From The Quay
by johngayton

The Pier Hotel's main restaurant is decidedly geared for more formal eating but downstairs it does offer the Halfpenny Pier Bistro with more simple offerings for us mere proles. Personally I found the service on the wrong side of stuffiness but then maybe that's just me.

For a lunchtime spot overlooking the harbour this is the prime position to sit and watch the world go by and when the sun's out and you can sit outside then it's almost perfect.

Favorite Dish: The fish pie was pretty good, with luxurious chunks of expensive fish and an interestingly dressed mixed leaf salad almost justifying its price-tag.

Address: The Quay, Harwich
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Right on the quay, pretty unmissable really!
