A Stunning Restaurant, Bar & Hotel on the Essex Coast
The Pier at Harwich is a small AA 4 star hotel and a very special destination for lovers of great food and drink.
The redefined brasserie is located on the first floor of the completely modernised 1860 listed building in historic Harwich. Experience all-day dining and outdoor dining – whenever the sun shines – with a menu celebrating modern classics, an exciting grill menu and wonderful fresh fish and shellfish landed on the harbour opposite. The Pier’s first floor balcony (for drinks and outdoor dining) overlooks the water, ships and working docks. With estuary views from every table, The Pier is only a stone’s throw from the confluence of the Stour and Orwell estuaries and a very special destination for lovers of great food and drink.
The NAVYÄRD on the ground floor is a continental bar and terrace adjacent to the working harbour. Experience cask ales, craft beers, cocktails and an extensive Gin Library – 150 at the last count, so if you come across an unusual gin do let us know.
The 14 bedrooms are individually styled to match the seascape and take full advantage of the brilliant light that you only get when staying on the coast. Harwich enjoys glorious sunsets and the setting sun on the Stour estuary is a special feature of staying at The Pier, for that reason alone we recommend a stay with us!
All our bedrooms have private bathrooms, luxury Elemis products, king size beds, complimentary soft drinks and Sky In-Room. The hotel has 4 AA stars.
