You cannot miss it when approaching Vessel 11: the 1951-born, red lightship towers proudly above the harbour, with its deck-turned- terrace making us lust for long summer waterside nights. Vessel 11 served as a lightship in the Irish sea and was in service until 1991. Nowadays it is helmed by Jan Visser and his wife Brontë Flecker, who also reside at the ship.  Upon entering, the typical British pub vibe kicks in. Cosy yet robust, Vessel 11 boasts a warm interior with a home-like ambiance. It is not just the interior that is tasteful. The chef serves up the best of British cuisine, showing us there is much more to it than the typical English breakfast or fish and chips.
