Perfect stop for gorgeous hot chocolates and a coffee on the way back after a nice walk in the cold. Even had little heart biscuits to mark the date. Nice to meet the owners having been popping in here for years when visiting this gorgeous area. We'll be back!

Very disappointed with this place. On our last visit here, we found what we thought to be a relaxed and well run deli come cafe with a good range of different foods in a rustic environment that appeared to be well managed. Visiting this month projected a very different image of the place. The lack of cleanliness and attentiveness to... More

Although a foggy day we headed to Newgale for a beach walk. Popped into Sands cafe for lunch and a tea/coffee. Staff were pleasant and the food was nice. Lovely granary bread and plenty of choices on the menu to suit everyone. Yes it might not be the fanciest looking place but in the end the quality of the food... More

Visited late in November on a windy, cold day. The cafe was a welcoming spot, but the tables and floors were a bit grubby. The food and drinks were just ok, nothing special.

On a gorgeous November morning, a full Welsh Breakfast was just the ticket before we left Newgale beach & lovely Pembrokeshire for the long drive home to north Wales. Excellent coffee, delicious & generous breakfast, efficient service. Would definitely return.

The service here was appalling. Just for a cup of tea and a scone we had to wait 15 minutes. Nice cup of tea but never in my life have I had a scone with a soggy wet bottom as it has been put in the microwave to warm. The scone was replaced after asking but disappointed with the general... More

A large group of us met here for coffee and cakes before a walk in the area. Coffee is good I had a large cappuccino and it is large! They also do latte, mocha, americano, various teas, the cakes looked lovely but I managed to resist. One downside is some of the tables are very close together, meaning when its... More

I have visited Sands Café on many occasions but this is my first review. After a wonderful walk on Newgale sands the café provides great breakfasts, home made soups and salads, hot chocolate and cakes or ice cream depending on the season. Open all year round!

We visited for lunch following a morning of surfing on the gorgeous beach just across the road. There was a decent selection of food and even though the cafe was very busy we were still served in a very reasonable amount of time. The paninis were lovely and I tried the homemade hummus followed by an ice cream cone -... More

Newsurf's Sands Cafe is on the same main road between Haverfordwest and St Davids as the surf shop with beautiful views of the pebble bank and sea from your table. We serve a range of food including sandwhiches, toasties, paninies, burgers, soups and salads as well as a number of homemade cakes and biscuits. Ideal for relaxing after a day enjoying the sun at Newgale or perhaps to pick up an energy boost after an activity at Newsurf. We serve a selection of specialty "Tea Pig" Teas and strive to use the best ingredients for our coffes and meals. We hope to see you soon!
