“Fabulous comfy leather chair interior, log burner - lovely evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Well, I visited the Lighthouse Bar a little while ago when it was freezing outside, but once you've braved the cold Margate winds you're in for a treat. The inside of this bar is really lovely - comfy leather armchairs, log burning stove, lighting is just right. It just feels like a fabulous warm, friendly place where you're welcome. Obviously you could get a completely different party feel in the summertime, and we'll definitely be back for evening cocktails sitting outside by the harbour but for a cosy evening we loved it.

And they make a mean hot chocolate with all the trimmings if you want to try something different on a cold evening!

Service was quick and friendly so would recommend and as someone who's lived in Margate for quite a while now - really good to have another quality bar in the town!

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This bar is right at the end of the Harbour arm and has views across to the promenade and beach. We just stopped for a drink but Tuesday is Thai day and one of the local Thai restaurants has a pop up restaurant there. Very welcoming and great place to stop after a long walk.

“Watch The Sun Go Down...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Lovely, lovely bar, with sweet and friendly staff and great tipples. Great place to watch the sun go down, and to have a drink before eating at Be Beached

Well worth braving the elements as we were welcomed with a lovely log burner and cocktails made to order, an absolute must if you visit Margate :)
