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.

Came here with my family for dinner and were sorely disappointed. The drink prices are one of the most expensive in Porthleven, however the food didn’t match. My partner ordered the halloumi burger and on the menu it said with a flat mushroom with it, however there was three slimy un-flavoured flat mushrooms inside just making it a tasteless sloppy burger. I ordered of the specials and had the risotto which was basically stodgy tasteless rice pudding, and they forgot my garlic ciabatta to go with it. Very slow service despite being sat in the restraunt side and being sat at 6pm on a week day and having previously booked. Despite seeing the head chef walking around the restraunt, his food tasted like it was cooked by an inexperienced child chef. Lots of other fantastic places to eat in Porthleven. The vegetarian options are basically carbs and more carbs and no fresh nice ingredients. The harbour inn needs to up there game, won’t be returning for a while. Or if it’s just chips (can’t mess them up)

Excellent food at an affordable price- we ended up visiting twice and sheltering from the torrential rain. Chips are fantastic- crunchy, chunky, crispy goodness! Very comfy and cosy with something for all tastes.

This pub was our ‘local’ when staying in Porthleven. We visited for a drink on many occasions in the week we stayed, especially as they are dog friendly. We ate here once as we visited for the Thursday night pub quiz (starts between 8.30 and 9pm). We weren’t expecting to be blown away by the food (as we had already been to most restaurants in Porthleven before this night). The scampi was good (ordered the fries instead of the chunky chips) and my partner had the burger with cheese but he found it quite rubbery. We saw someone else’s special of the beef and Stilton pie and that looked good. The quiz was lots of fun and was great with the local atmosphere. (We won the bingo during a break in the quiz :-). Make sure you can can see a TV when doing the quiz as that is how the questions are presented.
