Great food and lively staff!
All that’s needed
Some Tenby pubs should send their staff here for lessons!

Visited this cosy pub several times in the last 12 months. First experience was brilliant service and lovely food, They seem better at the pies and things with vegetables, curry small, not hot,and just came with dry chips. The salmon and cod crusted fish dishes are tasty and the first lot of garlic potatoes lovely. Lamb shoulder lovely too.
On two recent occasions either side of the festive period we had bad experiences.
A quick getaway lunch turned to an 80 minute wait. Bad enough, but then the pie came with an almost raw crust and the fish was underdone with raw pastry beneath the fish. We were stressed by then so left it.My wife felt ill afterwards, glad she didn't eat much of hers.
The second bad visit was in the second week of January, My walking friend had crusted Cod and I tried the pie of the day. The fish was "on the point", The garlic potatoes hard and the cream around them did not appear well cooked.
We both had violent vomiting and diarrhoea for the next two days. None of our separate families had any vomiting bugs and it seems only logical that there is a problem developing with food prep or contamination . This is reviewed in good spirit in the hope that this information helps improve things on the off days.
The second star in the rating is only because the service when it works is great, and the waiting time to pay is now shorter, they seem understaffed at times.
I will watch the one star reviews and try it again when they improve as the first 3 times last year were lovely.

Lovely atmosphere, food,drink and service. Visited on a number of occasions and never disappointed. It was good enough for Russel Crowe and crew!

Me and my daughter stayed here for 3 days between Christmas and New Year. We know the area well and have been past Carew Inn many times but never thought of staying. I’m glad we did! Everything about the room was clean and comfortable, even thinking of a Christmas tree!

Thankyou to the staff for making us feel welcome, we’ll be back!

Warm atmosphere, warm bar staff, warm welcome and a cracking chilli. Popped in a little late for lunch and nothing was too much trouble. Even our dog was made welcome.
