Description: At The Cambrian Inn you will find the best of both world’s, a welcoming relaxed lounge bar and the simple yet stylish main dining room.The lounge bar with its relaxed atmosphere is the perfect place to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink, or if you are not heading for the main dining room, you can just sit back and relax in one of the comfy chesterfields, enjoy your drink, order some snacks or delve into our wonderful bar menu, available every lunch and evening. With dishes like our Pembrokeshire Wagyu beef burger using the finest meat reared in the county and a selection of fresh fish caught daily by Solva fishermen you can get a true taste of Pembrokeshire.The main dining room, with it’s exposed stonework, original pitch pine beams and contemporary furnishings provides the perfect environment for you and your party to enjoy your selection of dishes and wines that have been carefully put together by the resident Head Chef, Matthew Cox and his team. We like to feel we cater for all, with a wide selection of meat, poultry, fish, game and of course vegetarian dishes using only the best local produce wherever possible. Matthew’s menus reflect his simple yet sophisticated approach, which relies on the quality of the ingredients to speak for themselves.

“Best steak ever!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Went twice to the Cambrian with my wife after reading good reviews on the Trip Advisor website while on holiday nearby, and was definitely glad we did. A very friendly, welcoming, and cosy atmosphere with excellent, locally sourced home cooked food. My sirloin steak was the best I have ever had, miles better than the one I had at Marco Pierre Whites The Lifeboat in Thornham, Norfolk, my home county, earlier on this year, and a third of the price. My wife also thought her Sicillian lemon free range chicken was gorgeous! Just wish we had found this little gem at the beginning of our holiday, as we would no doubt of had lunch or dinner there every day! Keep up the good work!!!

Service was a bit slow, otherwise another nice meal. The lamb burger comes recommended. Prices are on the high side otherwise worth a visit.
