The Pier

The Pier at Harwich is a small AA 4 star hotel and a very special destination for lovers of great food and drink. The first floor restaurant (with two AA rosettes) overlooks the harbour, ships and working docks and is only a stone’s throw from the estuary where the fresh fish is landed daily.


The menu is proudly influenced by the best European cooking and celebrates the changing food influences from Britain’s mainland and our European peers. Spacious interiors and design reference Harwich’s industrial past, but deliver a striking balance between function, luxury and glamour.

The Pier is a stunning redefined brasserie located on the first floor of the completely modernised 1860 listed building in historic Harwich.

Located on the quayside of this Essex town, The Pier serves stunning food and boasts an enviable drinks list, making it East Anglia’s most exciting coastal dining destination.

Experience all-day dining (all-year-round) and outdoor dining – whenever the sun shines – with a menu celebrating modern classics, exciting grill dishes and wonderful fresh fish and shellfish landed on The Pier’s doorstep. Guests can select from a predominantly European wine list or enjoy Prosecco-based cocktails, craft beers and cask ales. With estuary views from every table, The Pier, which is only a stone’s throw from the confluence of the Stour and Orwell estuaries, is a very special destination for lovers of great food and drink.
