FOODLOVERS and romantics looking for a honeymoon hideaway where they can discover and indulge in culinary delights are being invited to head for Portishead this year (2018).
In the heart of the historic seaside town and above the Venga Restaurant & Tapas Bar, is The Loft Apartment and brides and grooms can even book the restaurant for their reception too.
The Loft, which has a full-sized kitchen-diner, is perfect for those wishing to cook their own candlelit meals or for anyone wanting to ditch the cooking utensils and to dine out in style with Venga’s menu.
The Loft is light and spacious, covering the entire second floor of the property and despite its central location, it is tranquil and peaceful.
The apartment is owned by husband and wife team, Chris and Mike Yeatman.
