Recent visit April 2010. Shocking food quality, very badly served by inexperienced staff. Food had to be sent back as it was only 'warm', attitude of staff was unacceptable, they were not interested or apologetic at all. We will definately NOT eat here again !! and I would not recommend to anyone.

Would never aet hear if it was free!

Totally rubbish !!

We have stayed in Porthleven on three separte occasions , not at the Harbour Inn. We have always stayed in a local cottage.
The Harbour Inn's Meals are great , good value for money. Staff very helpful. But forget the Cream Tea's they really do lt the place down. Deffinetly not value for money when you travel around Cornwall & see what Cream Tea's really are & what you can get for the same money.
Yes there are other resturants in Porthleven, but they are a lot more expensive.

We had the pleasure of staying in the superior room with the bay window. we are booking in for July 2009. The food was good (perhaps they should not deep fry the breakfast mushrooms) well worth the money. we have tried self catering, and this is much better value for money. Used to run a St Austell pub myself and this one is well run and the beer is well kept.
