We called today for lunch what a gem of a find OUTSTANDING. Service was relaxed friendly and efficient very welcoming staff. Wide variety of fresh fish not cheap but it's true you REALLY do get what you pay for however you don't HAVE to push the boat out a selection of very reasonably priced meals and snacks were on offer....

A lovely little Inn with an impressive menu with an commendable fish choice. Indoors and outdoors seating with friendly efficient staff. A good beverage selection. Well worth the effort to get to this place.

Whilst on holiday we cycled to Dale without knowing what we would find. The Griffin was there to welcome us, we had delicious fish soup for lunch, and we booked for dinner the next evening. We ordered from the fresh fish menu, which changes according to what has been caught. We both had thefish soup again, the turbot, served with... More

Freshly cooked to order, brilliant menu with mouthwatering descriptions , the very best cuisine in an amazing setting. Tonight I have had delicious king size prawns in a succulent sauce followed by lobster carbonara which was second to none I have ever tasted. If you are in Pembrokeshire you should really not miss this place to eat just two minutes... More

Average meal, hugely overpriced for what it was. Chips should be crisp but these were soggy potato wedges which looked over cooked and tasted strange. Will not be back. Offered a reduction but asked for potential reduction to be given to charming and helpful waitress as a tip.

We sampled the hake, cod and Childs burger meal. All lovingly prepared and delicious. The cod was served with asparagus and samphire. The chocolate knickerbocker glory was amazing! My son said it tasted like chocolate torte and it did. Slightly gingery too. Slightly expensive fish but it is locally caught so you get what you pay for. Fab view from... More

We have called in here a few times after walking the Dale Coast path and you always get a nice friendly welcome from the staff . We would have ordered food here but find the meals all over priced for what they are. we ordered two 1/2 s of lager and 2 packets of small plain crisps which cost £5,... More

We did not stay at the hotel but had supper at the restaurant to celebrate an important family gathering. Lovely setting overlooking the sea did not compensate for very, very slow service and and uninspiring boring food. Expensive for what we ate. We were overcharged and have not had a refund despite several requests.

The Griffin provides a very good selection of fish-if only the cooking was better! Lemon sole, John dory and bream were all insipid- the lemon sole scarcely tasted fresh. Seasoning is poor. It silmply isn't adequate to steam a lemon sole and serve it minus even a slice of lemon and charge £20. Starters were better but even a delicious... More

We ate here while during the Dale regatta, so I was very glad that we'd booked as it was very busy. Great choice of fish and friendly service. I had plaice, 2 delicious fillets. Husband had calamari, also delicious but small portion for a main meal. Kids meals were fine but again portion size was small. Would definitely return.
