“Essex doesn’t get much better than this” comments Brian Jackman when describing The Pier at Harwich. Featured in last week’s Saturday Telegraph is an article on the Walton Backwaters, and a brilliant review of our very own hotel and restaurant, The Pier at Harwich!

Sharing his thoughts on his recent visit to Harwich and exploration of the Walton Backwaters, Jackman writes about Harwich, “one of the best kept secrets in Essex”. The Pier Hotel is described as “one of the most distinctive buildings” and “without doubt the place to push the boat out”.
