We ate here 4 times during our recent holiday near Tenby. We tried about 10 other places but this was by far the best - excellent food, ambiance and service. The honeycomb ice cream in brandysnap basket is amazing! Not the cheapest place to eat but if you take advantage of the 20% early bird discount before 7pm as we... More

Fantastic steak, only wish that they had big chips as an option as I don't like fries, but other than that it was perfect. The bread was fantastic and was enough for us to share between two as a starter as the portions are big and I wanted to save room for the duck egg ice cream which was HUGE... More

Enjoyable meals - the homemade bread was really good but a very generous plateful, good wine list. Would have preferred a choice of side dishes, rather that vegetables and boiled potatoes as my husband isn't a big fan of new potatoes. We both had fish, which was well cooked and very fresh but I did find a few bones in... More

Ate an evening meal here on our honeymoon, service was brilliant, even had a just married balloon and complimentary glass of wine. Food was very nice even though some dishes were way overpriced. Dessert was probably our favourite. Will return.

We booked and were shown to our table but as they were busy we were pretty much ignored for the rest of the evening. Perhaps not enough staff to serve all the tables as it was full. The food was good quality.

Didn't book but got here quite early to take advantage of the early bird discount. We were lucky to get a table. Food very good but the waitresses were very busy.

Recently had a wonderful meal here with my family. There is so much choice on the menu I had the Black Bream from the specials menu and the Duck Egg ice- cream for dessert WOW. The restaurant was busy but the staff were excellent and very friendly Thank You Blue Ball.

Can't say I was impressed in this place. Everything seemed to take too long and the venue was very dark and tight. Meals were not great, certainly not at the level I would expect by any good restaurant.

Having seen an advert in the local 'Summer Holiday Guide 2014' and 'Trip Advisor' reviews, we tried the restaurant this evening at around 7.45. Although we didn't have a reservation and it was very busy, we were offered a table in the upstairs dining area The menu offered a good variety, with many lovely options, which meant deciding what to...

My first tip is to ensure you book a table, so many customers turn up looking for a table, and although at the time it can look like the restaurant is only half full, most of the tables are pre-booked. Book Mon-Thurs and there is an 'early bird offer' saving 20% off the total bill. The Blue Ball has one... More
