Great Sunday roast

We were struggling to find a decent, reasonably priced pub or restaurant to have a Sunday roast. We had almost given up and were walking back to our car when we came across the Five Arches. I agree with some comments that it's a bit dark in there with bare stone walls darkened over the years. There... read more

This pub just in from the castle wall is a charming aid pub, with a old fashion open fire place, they have a great menu with great food and great prices.

Service with a smile, friendly atmosphere, clean & tidy. We have just come back from a weekend in Tenby ( Jan 2016) and as not in the "holiday... More

Don't bother with this one. The staff were unwelcoming unless you were a local. The whole place could do with a clean. Thank goodness we only popped in for a drink as we had to use the loo. The toilets have seen better days and are in desperate need of a refurb. There are signs saying do not put nappies... More

We stayed in Tenby on a short break in October.We were looking for somewhere to eat in the evenings & found The Five Arches-couldn't have done better.Good reasonably priced food,friendly staff & a great atmosphere-which was enhanced by the rugby!.We ended up eating there every evening. If we go back to Tendy again we will definately visit this pub again.

Usually Trip Advisor comes up trumps, but not on this occasion. I ordered our meal at the bar, but the staff seemed more concerned with the locals at the bar and being distracted, instead of taking my order when asked what I wanted. The original choice of dressed crab was not available so chicken & jacket potato / steak pie... More
