The Quay, Harwich, CO12 3HH

The historic town of Harwich has links to famous diarist Samuel Pepys, and The Mayflower, the ship on which the Pilgrim Fathers set sail to America. However, in more recent times, Harwich has become home to The Pier, one of the finest restaurants in the area. The Pier restaurant and hotel has been owned and run by the Milsom family since  1978, and sits proudly overlooking the waterfront in old Harwich, with fantastic views over the harbour and Ha’penny Pier.

The restaurant is located on the first floor of this listed building, and is tastefully decorated with a modern dining area and seating for over 120 diners. Local heritage is very important to this restaurant, with the kitchen using locally caught fish and shellfish. The menu offers a diverse combination of dishes ranging from the iconic fish and chips to mouth-watering lobster. Main meals range in price, but you can count on superb quality. On arrival, we received a very warm and friendly welcome from waiting staff, who were more than happy to explain the menu to us. I chose grilled sardines followed by dressed crab, and chilled coconut rice pudding. My dining partner chose pea soup, sirloin steak and lemon cheesecake, all of which were perfectly cooked and presented, and tasted absolutely delicious.

The Pier also features the NAVYÄRD Continental-style bar and terrace, and the Saloon, a private dining area accommodating up to 24 guests, both of which are perfect destinations for those looking to unwind of an evening.
