Newsurf's Sands Cafe is on the same main road between Haverfordwest and St Davids as the surf shop with beautiful views of the pebble bank and sea from your table. We serve a range of food including sandwhiches, toasties, paninies, burgers, soups and salads as well as a number of homemade cakes and biscuits. Ideal for relaxing after a day enjoying the sun at Newgale or perhaps to pick up an energy boost after an activity at Newsurf. We serve a selection of specialty "Tea Pig" Teas and strive to use the best ingredients for our coffes and meals. We hope to see you soon!

Needs a good clean, decorate and rethink of menu and could be a brilliant stop lovely location right on Newgale beach

Popped in for a coffee and cake, but what a disappointment. Coffee rubbish poor flavour, Cake dry and tasteless. Whole cafe was dirty and the toilets were disgusting, not been cleaned for ages by the look of it. We will not be visiting again. Steer clear.

Well what can I say, went for breakfast with the family and what a friendly fun place to eat. The staff all dressed up because it was Halloween which I thought was great and added to the atmosphere of the well decorated cafe. I will definitely be going again soon

Have been a regular visitor to Newgale for many years, I was initially was delighted when this place opened up. Sadly standards have and seem to continue to be in decline. Our drinks never arrived so we had to remind the distracted and rather unprofessional young girls. When they did arrive the glasses were filthy they were sent back. 5... More

Just went to the Sands for a coffee with some friends after walking on the beach. Waited 37 minutes for it to arrive and then to be told they didn't have what we ordered...........Girls not on it. Try having someone who is in charge of making drinks. Easy really.

This place is great!. A strolls distance from the beach. The staff was incredibly polite and the food was delicious. Admittedly, It took a while to get my order in as it was quite busy when when i arrived there (2.30pm). However, it was definitely worth the wait. Will be dropping by Sands Cafe whenever I'm in Newgale again!

If you need a coffee and some breakfast on a weekend morning then this is the place to go after a brisk walk on Newgale beach. Buy your newspaper,corner your coffee and breakfast and just relax for an hour or so before you hit the surfing or kite land boarding. Staff always serve with a smile!
