“Deserves its #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We visited yesterday three days before it shuts down for the season and despite reading the rave reviews I expected the cafe to be winding down for winter. Nothing of the sort, my mother rated the crab sandwiches as the best she has had and the staff were really pleasant. Definitely worth a visit.

“Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

First year on holiday with our young dog-What a pleasant change to be welcomed to an establishment which offers superb fresh food -No frozen chips and microwaved stuff here!
We enjoyed coffee ,chocolate torte and blueberry cheesecake --Walked to the shop in the village and then returned for lunch which included baked potato and coronation chicken with salad /ham salad ,with home cooked potato wedges ,homemade coleslaw ,salad and chutney --fantastic!---Just the kind of place I strive to find, but rarely do so.

“Why the "1" reviews???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Found this by accident on the walk from the church. The map said there was a tea rooms on the walk but we were not expecting much. What a surprise. Had the crab sandwich and mediterranean platter and both very good. Coffee was not overly hot but can't have been too bad as we had another to wash down the delicious Key Lime pies.

Staff were helpful, courteous and efficient. They allowed some of a kayaking party that turned up on the next table to us to eat their own sandwiches while others ordered from the menu with no comment or hassle.

It may be more expensive than most places in the area but they have a very short season and I don't begrudge the slightly prices if it keeps them in business for the next visit.

Well worth a visit even if not doing a walk around the area.

“Favourite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

One of our favourite places - great too if you have dogs, park at the church in Lawrenny and walk down through the fields and woods to the tea room where there are plenty of outside tables to tie up the dogs while you eat - then walk off the calories on the way back. The food is great, varied and tasty (love the Mediterranean vegetable platter) - can't understand the reviewer's comment about rude and unhelpful staff - we've visited dozens of times and they are always really friendly and accommodating. Service is quick - in fact it's often on the table before you get back from ordering! Haven't been down too much in this really horrid wet summer but hopefully it'll be better next year. Happy New Year!

“Do not visit Pembroke without visiting the tearooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

A fantastic lunch on a beatiful day in a stunning location - bliss.
This is a must visit location and we will be returning, the food isn't cheap but it its of a high quality making it good value for money which is something we all appreciate.
I had the crab sandwiches, my wife had a mackerel pate and we shared a seaweed beer - can;t fault anything. Some of the taestiest food we've had in a long while and the staff were so polite and friendly.
