We turned up at the Sloop on a midweek lunchtime, February, blowing a gale and with freezing temperatures. The first thing that hit me as I walked in was the smell of a wood fire! Out of the wind it was amazingly cozy and warm. The bar was snug and dark, wood all around and traditional scrubbed wood tables. The menu had a good range and most of it sourced locally and in season, prices were reasonable. We both ended up with the Fish Pie which was well stocked with white fish, salmon and prawns. The taste was very good with a nice creamy sauce. the only thing missing was a couple of mussels whcih would have set it off perfectly. This was a great find (we'd not eaten there before, usually going down to 'The Shed' on the harbour). I think this will be our venue next time.

What a great place and a terrific night. Good food and great atmosphere in a simple small town Welsh pub.

Make sure you get there early on a darts night as the place gets really busy notwithstanding that the town of Porthgain recorded no more than 35 residents at the last census!

Nice staff and everyone so helpful.

The service was good, the beer was good and the food was really good. We had a great time and we had a great party. The young girl waitress was excellent, welldone!
I haven't been to the Sloop for ages.........We went as a group of nine, which was supoosed to be eight. We hadn't let them know we had added an extra person. Despite this they were so helpful and made us really welcome. We need'nt have worried at all.
Thankyou.

Found the Sloop inn by accident whilst driving on the Trefin to St Davids road. A couple of miles out of trefin it is sign posted on the right and after a couple of miles you find it close to the harbour area. There is ample parking outside, and the pub itself looks very impressive sat at the top of an incline. Again there is ample space inside and we ate from the bar menu. The food was varied, and was well presented. It was also hot and tasty. All in all it was a very busy, popular place even though it was the dead od winter and was pouring with rain.
