When the cold of winter starts to really sink in, there is nothing cozier than warming yourself by a fire. If you can add in eating your favorite comfort foods while sitting by that fire, then the cozy factor goes through the roof.

For many of us, eating by a fire is not something we can do in our own homes. Luckily, there are plenty of restaurants from Sandwich to Swansea that are serving delicious food and drink hearthside this season.

There seems to be something about a fire that just gives off romantic vibes. Maybe it's the soft firelight glow or the warm air it blankets you in, but fires are often key in romantic plans.
