“Best fish pie in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Recently visited Tenby and had 4 meals in this pub and wow what fab food especially the fish pie! The only problem we had was the queueing as its such a popular place and you have to queue at the bar 4 both food and drinks which made for a long wait if you only wanted a drink. But don't let that put you off its a fab pub with fab food!

“Awesome Value For Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Recently had a weeks holiday in Tenby and found this Pub that did food and I have to say it gives awesome value for money. We ate here at least three times during the week for our evening meal and each time the food was excellent for the price we paid. The menu is a typical pub menu with a couple of steak options as well as steak and Ale pie or Scampi etc etc. All the food arrived hot and we did not have to wait too long.. I will definitely eat here again when we return to Tenby...

“Good Food & Well Filled Plates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The food was good, and there was more than enough on our plates. We booked earlier in the day, because we were in a large group, and wanted to eat fairly early because of having young children with us. Unfortunately being a Saturday night the place was extremely busy, so we had to wait a while for our table, and then quite a wait for our food [try keeping young children waiting whilst sitting at the table]. However, it was worth the wait, and with eleven in the group, and a couple of bottles of wine, the bill was only a little over £100. However, we only had a main course, and because of the delay decided not to order puddings there. It was good wholesome food, with enough interest for three vegetarians too. The only downside, was being asked to pay the bill upon ordering, which apparently they do when the place is busy.

“Superb!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Went in twice on Sunday. First time just for a drink, but after looking at the menu and prices and comparing with the other pubs in the area, we decided to go back later to eat. Excellent food (according to my wife and daughter the seafood chowder is amazing!!), excellent value, excellent beer (Doom Bar, nuff said!!) and excellent atmosphere. Highly recommended!!!

“Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We ate here twice, once in the beer garden during the day and the second time inside, the food can take a little while to come when it is really busy but you are advised of the wait when you order.
Good food, hot and tasty.
Reasonably priced.
Friendly staff.
Worth a visit.
