The Pier Hotel at Harwich features two quality restaurants 'The Harbourside' and 'The Half Penny Pier' offering fine fresh seafood served on the waterfront.

The Pier Hotel at Harwich has been managed by Chris and Vreni Oakley for over twenty years, and now they have been joined byPier Hotel Harwich Nick Chambers, as General Manager, responsible for all day to day Front of House operations. The Pier are very much part of the local community with the restaurants enjoying a strong local following.

With fishing boats bobbing only feet from the front door their customers expect the freshest of fish and they are not be disappointed. The hotel has a nautical flavour throughout and the kitchen where Chris Oakley has been making the most of all the fresh fish for over twenty years is the heart of the operation.

The two restaurants the Harbourside and The Half Penny Pier cater for every taste and every pocket and the ground floor Bar serves the best coffee in Harwich. The Harbourside restaurant, with its splendid panoramic views, has gained a well deserved reputation as one of the country's premier seafood restaurants.

The Pier also offer facilities for accommodation, conferences, weddings (holding a civil licence) and sailing days. The Pier, part of the Milsoms group also run the award winning Milsoms and Le Talbooth.

I hesitate to give 10/10 from all the ratings but The Pier is almost perfect. My only tiny comment would be the portions are a little small, plenty of fresh veg but larger lobster and more of the expensive ingredients could be used. We have dined there several times and as we live 30 odd miles away it has to be good. We have stayed overnight and the rooms were lovely, with a wonderful full English breakfast. Not sure what the previous reviewer found wrong with the toilets, they were very good and Molton Brown soap and individual towels were good.

Overall it is first class and should be on your list of restaurants to visit in your life.

Have dined at The Harbourside restaurant at The Pier Hotel twice, and on both occasions the food was first class, and worth every penny. The sevice was great and all of our friends agreed their meals were delicious.
