New Mayflower 1620 Menu and overnight offer at The Pier in Harwich

Dec 16, 2019

A hotel at one of the key locations in the Mayflower story unveiled a mouthwatering new menu to mark Mayflower 400.

Home to the Mayflower's captain, Christopher Jones, Harwich plays a hugely important part in the Pilgrims' story.

To honour the Essex town’s proud association with the historic voyage, The Pier at Harwich launched its Mayflower 1620 Menu in January 2020, while there was also a special overnight offer for people wanting to stay at this wonderful hotel.

The Pier has long been a special destination for lovers of fabulous food and drink. Its first-floor restaurant overlooks the harbour, ships and working docks and is only a stone’s throw from the estuary where fresh fish is landed daily.

Crabs, scallops, prawns, mussels... what's not to love?!

What was on the Mayflower 1620 Menu?

For January and February 2020, chefs at The Pier conjured up some delicious dishes which perfectly reflected the waterfront location.

Their Mayflower 1620 Menu featured a selection of stunning local seafood, superb steak and wonderful wine, all designed to tickle your taste buds!
