A continental bar and terrace overlooking the harbour in Harwich

A Continental-inspired Bar with an Enviable Drinks List

NAVYÄRD is a continental bar and terrace overlooking the working harbour in Harwich town. Cask Marque ales, craft beers, a great drinks list, Prosecco-based cocktails and one of the most carefully sourced and extensive gin lists makes the NAVYÄRD ‘the’ go-to bar for our neighbours, friends and welcomed guests.

NAVYÄRD is undeniably and unashamedly a love letter to the continent – celebrating and championing the influential and historic links that Harwich holds with Scandinavia and wider Europe. It’s Harwich’s working and industrious backdrop and those European influences that have shaped the interior design of the bar, which has a functional and raw-material texture without compromising on comfort, luxury, glamour, fun and relaxation.
