The visit was an unplanned Sunday lunch stop, and I have to sat, I am glad we stopped. There was a choice of 4 meats, plenty of vegetables and gravy. The turkey was carved a little too thinly for my liking but the chicken looked amazing. The atmosphere in this place is lovely and friendly and we will definitely visit... More

The atmosphere here is wonderful and the food even better. It was obviously home cooked, didn't have to wait long and staff were really cheerful and helpful.

We popped in for pre dinner drinks on a cold December night and were welcomed by a roaring fire, great atmosphere and a plentiful supply of alcohol. Just what was required to kick off the weekend.

Popped in for a drink one Saturday afternoon and six hours later after several drinks and a meal we managed to leave! Lovely cosy, friendly pub that serves great pub food!

The food here is really good and plenty of it, Sunday lunch is a must, they didn't have the fire on when we were here but when they do it makes it really cosy, definately a place to go to to eat

The Five Arches was the first place we visited on a recent break in Tenby and it was a good choice. The lighting is low, creating a cosy, intimate atmosphere and there are no blaring TV sets - a big plus. Wi-fi is reliable and furniture is comfortable. Staff friendly and prices reasonable.

Had a quick drink in here one Monday late afternoon. The real ale was a nice pint and surroundings are pleasant and comfortable but it's a busy pub So maybe if you are looking for a quiet drink it may not be for you.
