Food reasonably priced with a good selection on the menu. The wine bar is a nice place to eat and also has a 'Snug' out the back across the court yard. We have used this for larger family meals. Its nicely decorated and cosy.

I haven't eaten Chicken Kiev for years. And this one was delicious. Harwich is filled with hidden gems: beautiful scenery, history and some great restaurants: this is one of them. Friendly staff, lovely food, big portions! And a nice atmosphere.
