By far this is a perfect location for an evening function in Pembrokeshire . . .

We stopped to have lunch here today and had a Roast Lamb Dinner, which was nice and hot but the meat was so overcooked it was black. There were 2 small potatoes and the bog standard peas and carrots. My husband had faggots mash and peas and thought the potatoes were 'Smash' Not impressed and will not be going back.

It was accompanied with a well kept pint of beer and followed by delicious sweets. The restaurant provided a lovely Sunday roast and all at a very reasonable price. One of the best meals... More
