Great place, staff and owner always friendly and helpful, great welcoming atmosphear. Great to visit anytime of day and they sell ASAHI beer! Only thing that is against this bar and the rest of the business's on the Harbour arm is the smell of sewage and seaweed which can be very 'Funky' whilst sitting outside.

We were lucky to stumble upon The Lighthouse Bar in the middle of a hail storm and be welcomed by friendly staff with smiles, towells and a wood fire to warm ourselves. The bar has a great ambience whatever time of year it is, with a superb view over Margate bay. The bar has a mix of seating with either intimate tables or large leather sofas for relaxing with a beer or wine depending on your mood and company. Definitely one of the best bars in Margate, if not the best, with great hospitality, a variety of entertainment including comedy and dating nights, an assortment of different dishes catering for all tastes, a good cocktail and wine selection and the most spectacular outlook. Don't miss out on visiting this bar on your next trip to Margate.

A great find on the end of Margate Harbour arm. Cosy atmosphere with a nice log burner, good selection of wines and an italian based menu. Fantastic hosts top it off.

I have now been there on numerous occasions, winter and summer. Winter is fantastic, sitting in the nice comfortable sofa's close to the wood fire, the only danger is that you never want to leave...
In the summer it is just fantastic looking over Margate town, sitting outside on the terras, again you never want to leave. Food and drinks are to die for. Service is really good and pleasant atmosphere. Taken some Canadian friends with me this summer and they were really charmed by the place. Taken some colleagues there and they were very pleasantly surprised. So yes worth going there after a nice long walk or a visit to the turner centre.

No trip to Margate is complete without paying the Lighthouse Bar a visit. Located on the end of the harbour arm under the lighthouse a perfect venue to while away the hours over a glass or two of bubbly or a hot chocolate to die for!
