We stayed here for one night in February. The staff were very welcoming and we were shown to our room which was very spacious and comfortable. We had not paid extra for view as we felt we didn't need that as our time would be spent exploring the harbour area and dining in the restaurant. The weather was surprisingly mild...

Lovely clean, comfortable accommodation. Can't fault the friendliness and efficiency of staff. We ate in the restaurant twice during our visit and the food and service on both occasions was great. The position of the harbour inn was ideal for exploring the coastal path. The harbour area itself was very pretty and luckily the weather was fine and dry too!!...

Met up here with husbands work colleague. Lovely restaurant area. Staff were friendly. We had booked a table but weren't rushed to place our order. Food was wonderful and served quickly once we ordered. Good portion sizes too. Will definitely come back again if we're in the area.

Visited to meet up with a customer and had a very nice surprise. The welcome by the staff was great. I was shown to my room by the manager and everything was explained such as breakfast times and bar opening times. I had the Blue Boy room and it was very large and a modern bathroom. The bed was very...

Noticed great looking St Austell pub when visiting village. Ordered a beer and coffee and as it's St Austell brewery beer was fantastic. Went back to bar to order from 'light lunch' menu and as neither of us wanted chips as not main meal of the day the only real option was jacket potato (was a good selection of flavours......)...

Great pub/hotel which offers central locations alongside the harbour of Porthleven. Very good bedrooms which offers all facilities one requires and pub has two bars one for sport and music and other a bit quieter but both provide good local food. Worth a visit.

Never been to Porthleven before so just gambled on the Harbour Inn. Was in a rush to get back to St. Ives. What a place to stumble upon. So quaint and the charming. The most beautiful of Cornish Harbour Villages. The food was good and the service was fast. Such a gem of a place.

Typical locals pub. Sky Sports, Music, Pool and Food. The Beer is good as well. First class position by the side of the harbour, busy now and probably very busy during the summer months. Not sure if I would come back as I thought it lacked Cornish charm.

We decided to go to the Harbour Inn to watch the football which was being shown in the bar. They offer a good choice of mostly homemade food and the staff seem very friendly, however, we were completely surrounded by dogs! The ones by us were rather smelly too which is very off putting when eating. They don't allow dogs...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Harbour Inn, we try to cater for everyone that is why the restaurant side does not allow dogs but we allow them in the bar side giving customers choice if they do not wish to sit near them, it is a popular place for dog walking that is why we allow...

A friendly, welcoming pub, serving good food and a choice of drinks. Clean, comfortable seating and a lunch that did not disappoint. We will be back next time we visit and will try to sample more of the menu.
