Right on the water’s edge, The Harbour Inn is a proper old Fisherman’s pub. Warm, workmen-like and wonderfully buzzy, with nautical charm in abundance. However with age and character, comes steps and undulations so please be prepared. It serves range of well-kept beers and spirits, and wines too – just what you need after a blustery beach walk. The daily menu showcases the freshest and finest local seafood including shrimps, sardines, monkfish, herring milts, with other pub classics too. The cosy corners of the bars lend themselves to small groups, whilst the light and airy fishing shed lends itself to larger parties with outstanding views over The River Blyth and Southwold marshes.
