Lovely location, lovely layout, really cosy and quaint. Was a poor reflection on the place as they were really busy on a Saturday lunch and massively understaffed. But still, expect better. Slow service, poor food. Dipping bread took 15 minutes, mains a further 40 minutes, waited 20 minutes to order desserts and another 20 for the bill. Was in no rush as we were on the way back to the Midlands after a 4 day break in Tenby. But no apologies or even clue as to what seemed to be going on. Even overheard the waitress slagging off the management because of not helping out and being lazy.

As others have said, this is a fairly small pub, although quite a few tables outside at the back. It is, though, a 'proper' pub with friendly and helpful staff and friendly customers - we got chatting to several. It was Saturday eveniig, so fairly crowded, but we managed to find a table as we'd arrived not long after 7 (10 minutes later there were no seats left).
We were warned that the kitchen was busy and food would take about 20 minutes, which it did, but disappointed that the starters were rather overcooked. They may well have bought in pre-prepared spring rolls, etc, though taste was OK. Mains were OK too - a decent portion and not bad tasting, but I wouldn't really call it Thai food.
Prices were very reasonable, and have given it 4 rather than 3 on that basis and for being such a friendly pub.

Have been here a number of times and always had good food. Can be tight squeeze as old traditional cosy pub, personally prefer to some ghastly pretentious 'gastro pub' whatever one of those might be! Had Thai chicken with chilli, friend had green curry. Prompt friendly service and food excellent. Was on holiday with client with special needs forgot to order bread. No problem, nice baguette supplied free of charge. Small point but makes big difference. Highly recommended if you can squeeze in.

A "gastro" type pub serving a wide selection of meals including Thai, all very reasonably priced.We both had steaks which were just right. We then spent the evening in the bar talking to locals and the bar staff-all very friendly!
