Visited here while on holiday, lovely pub, very spacious and plenty of seating. The food was amazing and the kids also enjoyed the pasta off the kids menu. We've since recommended it to friends who visited the area. Will definitely be back in the future.

Description
The Harbour Inn, Porthleven, is a lively pub situated on the harbour serving fantastic food all year round using fresh local produce. The decor is a comfortable blend of old and new, creating an atmosphere which is relaxed, informal and individual. The en-suite hotel style bedrooms are cosy and inviting, blending comfort with character, some enjoy sea views over the harbour. Located, on the Lizard Peninsula (near Helston) with its beautiful beaches, historic harbour and quaint narrow streets of fishermen's homes is the ideal location from which to explore historic Cornwall.
