“Disappointed in the food and service”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

We went when we were on holiday and after reading some good food reviews was expecting good food, but how disappointed we were a steak that you couldn't cut even with a steak knife, a lasagne that was burnt on the underneath and the lamb shank that was dry and tasteless with gravy that was indescribable. We didn't have any checks on our food so as a anniversary meal we were very disappointed

“GOOD FAMILY FRIENDLY PUB WITH GREAT FOOD”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Ate out at this pub twice in the week that we were staying in Tenby,fantastic food with great portion sizes and very friendly and accomodating staff,almost too much food for one person and the lamb shank is devine,sometimes struggle to get a table as it is a small area for the amount of people wanting to eat there but this makes for a great and cosy atmosphere,will definitly be returning and would recomend to anyone

“Good value but noisy”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Dropped into the Buccaneer on the basis of reviews here. Very busy and quite a big pub with open tables, rather than the settles and booths the name conjured up for me.

Food was good value and good quality for a pub. A small range of beers on the hand-pumps and I was glad to see that the barman pulled me a second pint without asking to replace the complete hash a barmaid had made of pulling the first. That's good service.

It's quite noisy but very family friendly at the right price, which is important.

Oh, it's quite a bit further up the road from the sea than on the corner that I had thought
