Britain's nearest pub to France, the Coastguard offers fine fare and spectacular sea views…
Dating back more than 300 years, The Coastguard in St Margaret's Bay, near Dover boasts panoramic sea views across the small bay.
The Coastguard is an historic seaside pub restaurant which reopened in April 2016 following a £200,000 refurbishment.
In keeping with its enviable seafront position, The Coastguard’s new look is inspired by maritime heritage, with red and white lighthouse-style pub fascia and signwriting, complete with boat-shaped planters and lifebuoys as decoration. An outside bar and barbecue have also been installed, along with outdoor feature ‘living room’ lamps.
The interior of the pub has also been completely refurbished, repainted in contemporary colours with a new fireplace installed. There is also new lighting and furniture and more nautical decoration throughout.
