This is a lovely restaurant to go with a small amount of family or friends. As you walk in the smells of good home cooked food hit your tastebuds and drive you crazy!! The roast dinners are by far the best meals on the menu, that and the cottage pie. The staff are welcoming and the prices of the menu... More

Every time we have visited this pub the staff are always very welcoming. We have eaten on a few occasions and every time it's been very enjoyable, and presentable. Monday night is steak night and apparently it's cooked to perfection (I'm a vegetarian, My the other half is the meat eater). Sunday lunch is very good, would definitely recommend!

Called here for lunch with my elderly mother while on a visit to Tenby. Gorgeous old building and has a lovely open fire. Had roast dinners which were very tasty and had lovely gravy. Very cosy place to go and warm up on a windy day. Staff very welcoming and helpful, I would recommend this pub.

Called in for traditional Sunday lunch, been here several times during last few years and we've never been disappointed. Nice cosy atmosphere in a traditional old pub,there is even an old stone chimney with a bread oven (not used) in the Ladies loo. Excellent speedy and pleasant service. Great roast lunch and plenty of it. Good value for money and... More

Good pub food on a wet, cold winter night. Roaring fire to dry us out, very quick service to surprise us, substantial homely meal to satisfy us. Will go again.
