Restaurants at The Pier

Two superb Essex locations for you to select from.

The Pier at Harwich offers two great options for dining, with each restaurant offering very different styles and atmospheres to ensure you have plenty of choice.

Treat yourself to the finest, freshest seafood in our flagship first-floor restaurant The Harbourside, or enjoy the more relaxed setting of the Ha’penny Bistro on the ground floor which is open all day, every day and there’s no need to book. Both restaurants enjoy views across Essex’s Harwich harbour.

The Pier also makes a stylish and unique Essex party venue that is sure to impress your guests.

The Harbourside The Ha'penny

The Harbourside Restaurant

Our first floor restaurant (The Harbourside) specialises in fish. Roasted giant prawn with piperade, serrano ham, parsley and garlic, pan-fried fillet of bream with courgette, gnocchi, pancetta and lemon beurre blanc, and lobster thermidor are just few examples of the excellent menu available.

You’ll experience fantastic views across the harbour as you dine. The service is second to none and we have an extensive and impressive wine list to accompany all your food choices.

Quick tip!

Make sure you book in as the sun sets – the skies are often a wonderful colour.
