Spent a week on holiday in Stackpole, Pembrokeshire, just 5 minutes walk from the Stackpole Inn and went in several times most to have a drink but ate there one evening.
The owners have achieved a balance between being a community pub while tapping into the tourist trade - without favouring or alienating either. Dogs are welcome in the public bar (on leads) and food can be served there if their owners want to eat.
The meal we had was very good, a beautifully cooked beef rib to share. However, the highlight for me was the quality of their beer and wine - especially the Brains Black which I thought outshone most pints of Guinness.
We felt that the prices were reasonable, but may be because we live & work in the South East. For reference a large glass of good quality wine (250ml) plus a pint of Black was just over £8.00 - less than a similar round would have been in Brighton or London.
Would be happy to go back again if we were in the area.
