Service was slow , steaks were inedible! Batter on fish was soggy ! Chips were frozen but lots of them to give the illusion of value for... More

Taking our family of 6 for a meal out as a treat, we chose the bucaneer, lovely setting but the advertised home cooked food is a complete lie, saw jars of uncle bens curry sauce being smuggled out of the stock room! The portions are huge, mostly chips, giving the impression of value for money, but my steak was inedible... More

Three of us went out for a meal here on a Thursday night in August. It was busy and the waitresses were rushing around. We didn't wait that long considering it was full, and the food was fab! Enjoyed Seafood Chowder with fresh bread - what a meal! Full of succulent pieces of haddock, cod, prawns, and very creamy and... More

Went in here for meal and drink with partner. I ordered 2 meals, got drinks and returned to seat. The pub wasn't particularly busy so I was far from happy that we had to wait almost an hour for the food to arrive. The meal was barely warm but I was so hungry by this point, was glad I had... More

4 of us went for lunch on a wet Sunday. The pub was full and bustling. I had cod and salad. Fish was lovely and the salad large and very fresh. All in the party throughly enjoyed their meal. Prices reasonable and staff friendly. A dog friendly place.

Our extended family has just enjoyed a lovely weeks long holiday on the Pembrokeshire coast. We have had some delicious meals and fabulous service all along the coastline, but not here. The beer garden was lovely but that's where it ends. The service was slow and nonchalant. Food was terrible. Only 1 out of 9 of us ate our different... More
