St Margaret’s at Cliffe

On the first May Bank holiday, we visited the coastal village of St Margaret’s at Cliffe.

The weather has taken a turn for the worse since the mini heat wave we recently had. A few weeks ago an ice cream vendor turned up outside our office. Regardless, we set out on a circular walk along the beach, up the hill and to a lighthouse, through some countryside before returning back through the town and to the sea front. In between the bitterly cold wind and rain, there were still some spells of sunshine; overall it was an enjoyable walk.

This is the beach where where some mad people will start if swimming the English Channel to France. The cliffs of France are visible on the horizon.

We enjoyed a meal at the Coastguard pub. It’s quite well known in these parts, enviable location on the beach and has won numerous food awards.

    Has the Coastguard pub won the Golden Gerrod aka The Gourmet’s Sceptre of Gastronomic Excellence?
