Been going to this place since I was a small child. On my last few visits, it just gets better & better! The owner is great, friendly & excels at desserts. Great to see the place buzzing again. Read a previous review comparing to the Sloop in Porthgain which was rather negative. The food here is way superior & not... More

I've been visiting this (part time) pub for many years - virtually every year when it has been open on and off now for four decades! The area needs a really good seafarers fishing themed pub serving good quality honest pub food at a fair price and I wish someone would take hold of The Old Sailors and provide this!... More

Good meal in pleasant surroundings.Down side was the price of food on menu was not what you pay.A 20% vat is added at end.This makes the price of a ribeye steak £19 95 on menu £24 00.It added £30 to our bill for 4.There was nothing on specials board or menu to inform you of this.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review, i think there have been some crossed wires regarding your bill, our till system is an american based system and it splits the final bill showing what amount was paid in vat. The prices on our menu are inclusive of vat and so shows the full and final price... More

Having visited the old sailors on numerous occasions over the years and thoroughly enjoyed a wide variety of fresh seafood dishes, we were somewhat disappointed when we took friends for a meal during the summer. The menu was somewhat limited and no longer the specialism in fresh seafood. The fish and chips used to be the best I've had, but... More

Doesn't look much from the outside, but inside is very warm and welcoming - full of character. Big convenient car park nearby. Before our evening meal we went for a quick walk on the coastal path up the hill next to the pub, and the views over the sea, with lights of Fishguard in the distance were rather special. (Well...

We had a really delicious Dover Sole beautifully cooked and with a scrumptious sauce with capers. The Welsh Cawl (vegetable soup with some meat - usually lamb) was also warming and good on a cold day.

We first came here some 20 years back when my recollection is that it was little more than a hut serving great mussels . It's been expanded but is still great. Walk round the stunning Dinas Head then treat yourself to quite simply the best plate of haddock and chips. Ever. Life rarely gets better than this.
