PLACES TO EAT

The Estuary at Port Edward is a magical romantic spot with gorgeous views over the lagoon to the sea – wonderful on a moonlit night.

The Country Lodge in Southbroom is a delightfully romantic cosy bar, with the choice of two restaurants.

Pistols Saloon at Ramsgate is a great place to go for a drink and have some Pizza. You may find your feet resting on a large pig, or your beer slurped by a donkey. Live music often on the weekends.
