We spent one night here and loved the staff and the food. Everyone was pleasant and efficient. I would have given this 5 stars but the room we were in was so incredibly small, the mattress was very uncomfortable and the pillows were like bricks. This room should be a single not a double. There was no place to put... More

We loved our stay here as you get a vibrant and welcoming pub with good quality accommodation in the back. Plenty of parking space available - in front of the pub and also a residents car park at the rear. The food is great and dogs are welcome in the bar where the full restaurant menu is available. To be... More

The Golden Lion came highly recommended by a friend. Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed and shown up to my ensuite room no.1 for the night. The décor and fittings are contemporary yet comfortable with muted colours and tones. I had a delicious dinner in the bar-restaurant, slept very soundly that night, and in the morning the cooked Pembrokeshire breakfast... More

Stayed here while walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Bedroom and ensuite modern and very comfortable. Dinner in restaurant excellent. Staff helpful and friendly. Across the road is a laundry, where staff were most helpful with getting our washing done.

another truly exceptional meal at the Golden Lion. The staff are attentive and efficient, good choice of menu, with some exciting specials. Strongly recommended but so as not to be disappointed, make sure you book. As a fall back you can eat in the bar.

On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant person (who was also serving behind the bar). The room was exceptional - everything 'go large' from the room and bed to the bathroom; even the bedroom window was large letting a lot of light into the room. The room was very clean and the bathroom had up market toiletries, All... More

A truly great place to explore Pembrokeshire from. The staff are incredibly friendly, the food very good and a great selection of local beers. Having stayed this weekend, they couldn't have done anything more to welcome us and to ensure we enjoyed our stay. If the pillows hadn't been rock hard I would have given a 5* rating.

we stayed for one night on the last weekend of the five nations rugby. It was very busy and the staff coped admirably with the many varying demands of the customers (food, booze, rugby watching etc.). They kept a friendly persona to everyone all the way through what was a very long day. We had lunch and dinner at the... More

Just had 2 days at the Golden Lion and had a really good time. The meals we're really very very good as was everthing else about our stay. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and staff very pleasant and helpful. A great country inn in a wonderful part of Wales. Will be going back in May.
