The Lighthouse Bistro is a small, cosy, award winning family run restaurant which makes everything from scratch including its own pasta, breads and smokes and pickles a range of local produce too. You can expect to find local cheese, seafood, coffee and a range of meat dishes such as smoked pork belly and lamb shank on the menu.
