BY NAME, BY NATURE! THE HARBOUR HEIGHTS HOTEL... on top of the Sandbanks world! And Harbar Restaurant has a fisheye view over
the second largest natural harbour in the world!
The terrace, which is serviced by the restaurant’s kitchens throughout the summer, is a front row to the islands of Poole Harbour – overlooking Brownsea, Green and Furzey Islands along with the Purbecks and sunsets towards Poole’s famous quay. Most of the covers in Harbar have this remarkable view as do the comfy sofa and chairs in the west-facing lounge area.
The Harbour Heights is a boutique hotel with 38 rooms
– all with Jacuzzi spa baths and most with views... the perfect environment to prepare for a beautiful evening in the restaurant.
Take a lazy cocktail at the bar or a glass of fine and rare wine from the Corvavin Experience and make your way to your table – past tropical fish tanks, live crab tanks and enjoy the delights that await!
Choose between the table d’hôte and the à la carte, with a good selection of local produce, fresh fish (of course) and always something a little bit special!
As is the wine list – a bottle of (Harbour Heights’ friend) Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc 2016 and the prawn and crab tian, with crystal clear cucumber jelly, tomato and avocado salsa – the shellfish fresh and textured contrasting with the jelly – just delicious...
The goat’s cheese mousse with beetroot ketchup, asparagus and radish salad is earthy, bright and complemented by the breads – white and seeded, cheesy and brown...
Service is friendly and the restaurant bustles between the open kitchen, bar and tables.
There is a great choice of meat – beef fillet, Aberdeen Angus rib for two and the rack of lamb with wilted spinach, roast carrots, crushed celeriac and purée, roast
