Great place for some straightforward British food with good consistent service. Eat your lunch or snack overlooking the river, which on a hot day makes it stunning. Never had a bad time.

A beautiful spot on the banks of the River Arun in Littlehampton - we were lucky enough to have a table by the window so could watch the boats make their way up and down the river. Must be glorious when it's warm enough to sit outside. Food was excellent - brilliant and unusual choices at very reasonable prices. I... More

Thank you for your lovely review and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to us and the quality of food was excellent. We try our best to put a variety of fish on our specials board and our local crab is very popular. We are in a delightful spot and even better on a sunny day! More

We were in Littlehampton for the day and found this restaurant in the harbour area. It was very busy - always a good sign.

We just had a sandwich but it was very good quality for the price and appeared to be made fresh. We only wanted a light lunch and made the mistake of ordering the additional "handful of chips". These were very good but the hand obviously belongs to a very large person!! Weather was rather poor when we visited but the... More

After a bracing walk along the sea front it is always a pleasure to visit this most enjoyable and busy restaurant. On a good day we like to sit on the terrace, but this week as there was a cool breeze we enjoyed the inside seating area. The restaurant is always busy but the service is quick. There is a... More

Try the Harbour burger meal. It's fantastic. A nice place to eat and having dined there regularly since it opened it has continually improved.

A terrific venue for coffee and delicious breakfast I've found. It has comfortable seats and if you get there early enough it has spectacular views of the river flowing out to the sea. It is a very popular place, which says it all. Highly recommended.

It's been awhile since we had breakfast, oh dear Breakfast arrived in quick time all was hot and to be fair tasted pretty good. BUT, the bacon although cooked, had no colour at all. Just flacid . The tomato was cooked, but when turned over the big green eye was still present. Now the real kicker, nearly £3.00 for 2... More
