History captured in a meal

Lord Nelson has figured large in my youth and to sit here where he might have sat is very special for me. The fish no matter how it is prepared is fresh. Read the history of the place and feel a part of it,

We dine out regularly in restaurants throughout the Uk and we are certainly no strangers to the Blue Ball, however last Friday's experience will not be forgotten for a long long time being an absolutely delightful experience, a classic adventure of flavours the likes of which are only available from the top restaurants in the UK. Service was, as usual,... More

If you're hungry this is the place to eat, there home made curries are to die for, they do a vast range of foods all cooked there and then for you, I have been going here since 1982 I love the place, but don't just take my word for it try it out next time you're in beautiful Tenby 👍🏼😀

The vibe is oldie-worldie charm with red brick arches and beams, although close inspection reveals that these are not actually original, or structural. The slightly bizarre addition of photos of z-list 'slebs' who've eaten there raised our... More

This had to have been one of our best ever meals. Take a look at the menu on the restaurant's web site! It is imaginative but not fussy. The service was also very friendly and very slick.
