The Lighthouse is one of those pubs where you wouldn’t expect a great deal of outside space, if anything at all. In reality it’s got a very nice patio that also has the benefit of a TV. This is good if you’re sportingly inclined, but not at all intrusive if you’re not. The food wants to be more than your standard pub and it’s all the better for it. It turns out calamari with a gochujang remoulade is an excellent drinking snack.
