Good food and service

Enjoyed our dinner time visit here with our young daughter. Service was excellent and the food was good. My only disappointment was the lack of seafood on the menu, although it may be slightly out of season. We were welcomed with a small child and would return when in the area again.

Last time in Cwtch a couple of years ago, we thought it very expensive. But last week, after reading the reviews in TA, decided to give it a go. Nothing has changed except the management. We had the early bird set meal. My wife's crab cakes were mainly potato. My terrine was well, a simple terrine, could do better at... More

Staying nearby there aren't a lot of places to eat that aren't pubs - but Cwtch more than makes up for this- had a lovely steak (which was absolutely massive). We got there early which meant we got a early bird deal which made it exceptionally good value for money. The staff were absolutely lovely even although the place filled... More

I have been to St Davids many times, but this is the first time that I have eaten at Cwtch. The restaurant is a lovely building that is welcoming, warm and friendly.

My wife and I arrived in St David's on a very wet and windy Sunday lunchtime. We didn't know any of the eateries in the tiny 'city', we were starving and had parked the car right outside the Cwtch*.

Cwtch* is not cheap but unpretentious and not overly expensive. There was a good range of wines. I had tomato and pepper soup followed by butternut, spinach and tomato tian. My husband had beef spring rolls followed by lamb, with vegetables to share. They were all excellent. My only comment would be that there was no main course choice for... More
