Recommended local places to eat
We advise that you make a reservation whenever possible, particularly in the summer months, weekends and at peak times like bank holidays. During the winter months it is also advised to call ahead regarding both the opening times and kitchen times. Due to the seasonal nature of Pembrokeshire, these are likely to vary during the "out-of-season" periods.

The St Brides Inn – Little Haven (5.5 miles)
Tel: 01437 781266
This traditional style pub has been delighting it's customers with it's traditional Sunday roasts and fresh fish specials that are often caught locally that day. If you are lucky enough to be in on fresh mackerel day then then this special is a must try! The pub is steeped in local history and still contains the old village well within it's walls. Dogs are allowed in the beer garden but that's not such a bad thing as it's a sun trap on a sunny Pembrokeshire day.
