The historic figure Samuel Pepys would certainly have appreciated this 16th-century hostelry, situated in the old part of Harwich close to the harbour. This charming inn remains a convivial establishment where diners can satisfy a love of good food and great wine.

The restaurant boasts a fine wine list and a comprehensive menu, which includes fresh seafood sourced daily from local fishermen. The main menu features delicious dishes made with expertly prepared top-notch ingredients. There are vegetarian options and a children’s menu, as well as a tempting specials board. I chose the smoked fish platter – comprising trout, salmon, mackerel, pâté, plump prawns and a warm baguette – to start. My partner chose the soup of the day, a seasonal combination of leek and potato. I was delighted with my main course of succulent lamb shank served on a bed of bubble and squeak, and my partner was equally pleased with a fish pie generously filled with salmon, white fish and prawns.

After such a satisfying meal, we were unable to resist the tempting desserts, and plumped for a refreshing trio of ice cream and a trio of sorbets. On a Thursday evening, the atmosphere was infectious, encouraging us to relax and stay a little longer to soak up the warm ambience.
