Busy pub, a good base for the area, with enjoyable food and friendly service; comfortable bedrooms
The good pub guide review
If you're walking along this stunning stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path or visiting the nearby Bosherston Lily Ponds (at their best in June), this inn is the perfect place to stop for refreshment ' or you could take advantage of its four spotless, comfortable bedrooms in order to explore more of the hidden-away countryside hereabouts. The cottagey, ivy-clad exterior fronted by a pretty garden dotted with picnic tables belies the surprisingly modern interior, with ash beams, low ceilings and an appealing mix of wooden and leather dining chairs and farmhouse tables. Brains Rev James and Felinfoel Double Dragon are the regular fixtures on handpump, alongside local guests from the likes of Mumbles, Purple Moose, Tenby Harbwr and Tenby Brewing Co, at least nine wines by the glass from a good list and a decent malt whisky selection. Most of the interior space is given over to the dining ' the food is well regarded.
