Stopped here one afternoon prior to a walk on the stunning beach. Service ok, nice and friendly. Not sure why 7 staff there though. I had the homemade sands burger which wasn't bad but over done. My girlfriend had a pizza on Italian bread. Looked ok, nothing special. Both came with salad which had a nice dressing and tortilla chips... More

Good location by the sea but staff completely disorganised. Went for breakfast but our meals arrived separately after a long delay. Mine came without cutlery. Waitress went for cutlery but the served someone else. I went into the kitchen to get knife & fork. Toast was dry as rusk and shattered when you tried to cut it. Table top was... More

Stopped here on the way to St Davids on a beautiful summers day. Bought a Fruit smoothie and some sweet potato fries and both were delicious! Smoothie was well flavoured, albeit coming from a packet, and very refreshing. Fries were cooked to perfection with a crisp batter on top. Place was getting busy at about 11, and the menu looked...

Went for lunch with my mum on a Sunday. It was extremely busy and hence ordering and service were a bit slow. However, the popularity of the place was reflected in its food. I had a very nice ham panini and my mum had French toast from the all day breakfast menu. Very nice quality and good portion sizes. Main... More

We decided to call in for lunch as had been previously and it was ok. Wow, has it gone downhill. Walked in to be greeted by an awful smell of bleach, which was laughable as the place was grubby. The tables were dirty and sticky, so were the wipe clean menus. The dying plants on the windowsills did not help.... More

Thanks for taking the time to feedback your thoughts. On this occasion, we had to take the unusual decision to stop taking any further orders as the kitchen had approx. 30 food orders already waiting to be cooked. The decision was taken in order to manage expectations of the queuing customers who would of endured over a 40 minute wait... More

Thought we'd go local for a coffee and catch up, won't go back again. We got there at 10am, only 1 other table in there. Every table had some dirt/crumbs/food debris on them menus are dirty and could do with a good clean. Every where you look you could see dirt this is not what u expect from a cafe!... More

Hi, thank you for taking a few moments to air your views on our café. I am sorry to see that you didn't enjoy your visit to Sands, and that you found it slightly overpriced. We do use very good quality ingredients, and everything is sourced locally wherever possible as we like to have as much welsh produce on the... 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!
