The Lighthouse Bar: Lighthouse Bar
The lighthouse Bar is a relatively new place located on the far end of the harbour wall next to the lighthouse (hence the name). You can sit inside or outside. Both options give you fabulous views of Margate. Inside the bar they have a wood burning stove and leather sofas, so it's really cosy in the winter. They have a good range of drinks, not cheap, but it's worth a visit for the great location.
The only downside is that there is no indoor toilet, so you have to walk along the harbour wall if you need to go!
