Please note:

Our restaurant is a unique building on Margate’s stone pier, often weathered by the ebb and flow of the North Sea. It is a wonderful space that can at times be challenging to keep open when impacted by prevailing weather conditions. For this reason, please be aware when you book with us we may occasionally have to cancel at short notice.

The harbour arm toilets, which are the facilities for all businesses on the pier are currently closed for refurbishment. During this time we have procured a dedicated prestige portaloo for Sargasso customer use. Unfortunately these toilets do not have disabled access. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. 


Sargasso is a small wine bar with food, consisting of counter seating and high window tables, nestled against the sea wall of Margate’s harbour arm. 

An informal place to enjoy cooking influenced by the European coasts.  Seafood and vegetables take centre stage, as well as a focused snack menu served alongside a wine and drinks list equally, all written with the seasons in mind.

A place to stop for an aperitif and snack or work your way through the menus with (or without) friends. Food and drink to be enjoyed while soaking up the Margate sun and skyline or when taking refuge from the wild North Sea coast.
