Visited here last week, the place was very busy with holiday makers.
Waited nearly an hour for the food to arrive, my wife had the sea food platter, which she said was very nice, and I had the beer battered cod
I was expecting the cod, to be something that was caught fresh locally, with huge chunks of meat flaking off to the touch!!!
WRONG
I have had nicer fish from my local chip shop.
What came was a over cooked batter, within was a mush of fish that I had to scrape off the skin.
Would of normally sent it back, however didn't want to wait another hour.
Also the stench of the toilets was coming through towards the dining area, when the door was being opened.
Won't return

The food was ok when it arrived (chicken curry recommended, mussels were overcooked) but we had to wait nearly 2 hrs for our food - the kids were patient but were getting very restless. We were told the wait would be 40 mins. A shame - location is great.

Ate here on our first night in Tenby. Lovely location near the harbour and very friendly staff. We sat outside in their dog-friendly courtyard, and feasted on a very reasonably-priced seafood platter for 2 (£22). Good selection of real ales. Wouldn't recommend the banoffee pie though - didn't think you could get such a simple dessert so wrong, but it really wasn't great.

Good food and good beer especially the real ales. Also has a nice outside area where you can also dine. Staff very pleasant and helpful. This pub is also children friendly. Would recommend to anyone looking for good food and beer at reasonable prices when in Tenby.

This tardis-like pub/restaurant close to the North Beach in Tenby is fantastic. It's where the locals go to drink and eat and they probably want to keep it secret. The food is fantastic. A wonderful selection of seafood on both the main menu and the specials menu. Good kids menu too. The catch landed that morning dictates some of the specials which range from lobster and crab to sea bass and mackeral. We had a really lovely, lazy lunch and the Stonebrook Cider was delicious.
