Many, many meals here in every season and never disappointed. Good pints and loads of atmosphere. Great for people watching. Service can be a bit spotty but even in the off season the restaurant is busy most of the time. Great for kids and adults alike. Harwich is a bit better with larger groups.

It has been probably almost 10 years since our last visit for lunch and it is just as good now as it was then and all the years since we first came here so long ago. The atmosphere is fun and the food is very good. We had the kale soup (a must have), I had the pastrami sandwich (our... More

Go here all the time...in and off season. Love the lively, cozy, low key atmosphere. Always good specials but also dependable main menu goodness. Personal favorite: their roast beef sandwich with au jous dipping sauce...and order a side of fries. Great for drinks and a casual hangout any time of year!

I always have a great experience at the Land Ho. I go back because of the atmosphere. It's busy and happy. It's been my family's favorite go-to place for years. The food may not be haute cuisine, but you can count on your meal to be consistent and good. The place buzzes in the summer with locals and tourists and... More

Friday night before Christmas , we arrived and found the place very busy waited only a few minutes before a table was found. A excellent menu with a wide verity of local produce , 4 different meals all excellent large portions but we are always amazed at the size price ratio compared with the UK.

Fun, casual, consistently good dining. Fun bar. Great seasoned staff! We are locals. We love the 'Ho and visit it often. It is not the place to go for a quiet, romantic meal - it is a lively place that is open for lunch & dinner.

Always feel like a welcome guest when we walk in. Seating is tight but it adds to the family-seating type of environment, it encourages cross-table conversations. The interior decor with the local signage is an easy way to kill the short time between ordering and food/drink delivery. Menu is variable enough to have something for everyone, but not a novella...

Good food in a casual atmosphere. Love the stuffed clam and fish and chips. Trivia night on Tuesday is lots of fun.

Lovely spot, great food and a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place for food or just for a stop off at the bar.
