The Pier is located in the heart of Harwich old town in an enviable position overlooking the picturesque quay and Ha’penny Pier. The Pier celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2013 so has long been established in Harwich with the hotel having four stars and two rosettes for cooking.
The Harbourside is the fine dining restaurant on the first floor of The Pier and is open from Wednesday through to Sunday, for both lunch and dinner. The restaurant is renowned for using locally caught seafood, much of which is landed in the harbour opposite. Head Chef Tom Bushell takes much of his influence from the sea, so expect Harwich lobster on the menu served either grilled or thermidor.
Complementing the food is the wonderful interior that looks out over the twin estuaries of the Stour and Orwell rivers. On the ground floor is the Ha’penny Bistro, open all day so perfect if you’re arriving by the sea. Sit on the terrace in the summer and watch the world (and the boats go by!) And you can also stay at The Pier, the hotel has 14 bedrooms. Many of the rooms look out to sea and the harbour – a stay in The Mayflower suite, complete with telescope is a must!
