Firstlight Bistro

FirstLight, The Bistro at the Bay is the perfect place to enjoy quality food at reasonable prices whilst out for the day, visiting St Margaret's and the White Cliffs, when on a leisurely walk with the family, as a pit stop when cycling through or to meet with friends. We are dog-friendly.

Our daytime kitchen is open seven days a week from 10am until 3pm. Our family-run bistro serves everything from breakfast to wholesome lunches with locally roasted coffee and we are fully licensed to serve our wide range of alcoholic drinks, with 6 drafts, over 30 different gins, a wide selection of quality wines, including sparkling, and other spirits.

Between Thursday and Sunday we stay open later, and the atmosphere continues with our lively evenings that include regular live music, quiz nights, BBQs on the terrace and lots more. Our kitchen is open, in the evenings on Friday & Saturday between 5pm and 8pm offering pizzas, stone baked on the premises, and other simple pub food.

We have both vegetarian and vegan menu options, and use locally-sourced ingredients where we can.
