The hotel’s in-house restaurant is a casual, all-day seafood bar & grill, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.
Dishes showcase regional flavours, employing local produce and seasonal ingredients where possible – expertly cooked under the supervision of locally-renowned Chef Director John Pollard. Signature dishes (highly recommended!) include a Harbour fish pie, the ever-popular seafood burger, a cod fillet topped with crab crumble, and large cut, dry-eyed steaks.
Afternoon tea, renowned for its fresh-baked scones and locally-made clotted cream and jam, is served daily in the lounge or outside on the terrace by the pool.
John Pollard joined the Harbour Hotels Group having worked in renowned kitchens such as J Sheekey, Scotts of Mayfair, and the Rivington Gill.
In 2009, John spearheaded the Pizza East opening in Shoreditch for the Soho House group, revolutionising the food scene in East London with simple food, high end ingredients and perfect execution.
In 2012 he took his brand of farm to fork menus to Soho House Berlin, helping to drive the food revolution in Germany. On returning to the UK he then developed Chicken shop and Dirty Burger brands for Soho house Group helping to roll out the concept throughout London.
Now at Harbour, John and his team advocate locally grown produce, farm raised, wild-caught seafood and farm assured meats to expertly make traditional favourites and modern classics with a contemporary twist.
The hotel has no private dining room as such, but the restaurant can host large tables of ‘private diners’. Private dining is also available in either of our function rooms.
Our expert chefs have created a number of additional menu options exclusive to private diners. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of our fixed-priced, set menus. There’s also the option of a BBQ buffet or full hog roast out on the terrace. Private diners may also select from the restaurant’s a la carte menu.
Make unwanted gifts a thing of the past. Treat someone special to an experience they’ll love and remember – like an exquisite gastronomic dinner or a sumptuous afternoon tea.
