Description: Here at The Mooring, we have a passion for lip-smacking, going-back-for-seconds, seasonal food. We make the most of the fish & fare on our Pembrokeshire doorstep. And we don’t pay through the nose for produce that’s not in abundance, which means our customers don't have to either. We’re natural born feeders. We perfect classic dishes and source tasty combinations, all seasonal and all freshly made

“Good food, nice staff/clientele, and reasonably priced”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Some friends had recommended another highly-regarded restaurant in Tenby, but the reviews were mixed, and we decided not to gamble on a valuable evening out without the kids.
We rang & couldn't get a table until 8:30, which wasn't ideal, but were happy to have a drink elsewhere first.
When we arrived we were given a warm welcome and our table was waiting.
On ordering Peroni I must have looked thirsty and was warned that stock was running low! Also a fish option had been substituted on the menu. That felt like a -ve at first, but on reflection we were glad the waitress had 'prepared' us in advance. It's trivial, but transparency from the staff makes it feel like a joint effort & goes a long way.
Chosen food was excellent; soup was superb; home-made olive tapenade was tasty; gamberoni were meaty; burger was a proper meal with nice home-made fries; fish looked delicious.
We were the last guests to leave at about 11ish, about £30/head for a three course meal and drinks - very reasonable indeed.

“No1 for a very good reason”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

The Mooring came as a recommendation from Tripadvisor so we booked a table & went along. We got a wonderful warm welcome and the staff made a fuss over our daughter who was very vocal. The food was served very quickly, the starters were superb & I cannot rave enough about the Pate. My wife had Steak as her main & I had the Big Bouy Burger, my daughter had Ham & Egg (as she polished off my chutney the staff were kind enough to make her a pot to go with her main) all the mains were cooked to perfection and the portion sizes were amazing. We ended with Cheesecake & Ice Cream which was also of a very high standard. The bill came and we could not believe just how reasonably priced the whole experience was. So there No1 rating is well deserved. The next time we visit Tenby this place will be on our list. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful time.
