Waterfront dining in Pembrokeshire
A feast for your eyes and your tastebuds
Fantastic food and captivating coastal views: two things Pembrokeshire offers in spades. Why not combine the two and book a table at some of our finest waterside restaurants.
Pembrokeshire is rightly famed for the sheer variety and quality of its seafood. And where better to sample it than at The Stone Crab, a restaurant with a friendly, informal ambiance, overlooking Saundersfoot harbour.
The menu changes daily, but you’re always guaranteed a delicious meal. Don’t worry if seafood’s not your thing – The Stone Crab offers meat and vegetarian dishes and a children’s menu. The Stone Crab is open all year, with a licensed bar, choice of inside or outside dining – and a very warm welcome.
This relaxed fish and chip bistro sits on the harbourside in Porthgain, on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, serving freshly caught local fish and seafood. Besides their tasty fish and chips the Shed serves a la carte fish dishes as well – from monkfish and prawn curry to whole sea bream – as well as a selection of meat, vegetarian and salad options.
You can eat inside but why not choose the takeaway option and eat at the outside tables. Then wander round picturesque (and tiny!) Porthgain with its harbour and art galleries.
Named after the edible seaweed that grows abundantly in the seas around Pembrokeshire, dulse is a vibrant new bar and restaurant at the Tŷ Hotel, Milford Waterfront.
With fantastic views over the marina and spectacular sunsets, dulse serves up creative dishes using only the freshest and best quality produce that Pembrokeshire has to offer. Executive Head Chef, Sy Crockford, has cooked for world leaders, including Barack Obama and Prince Charles, at a NATO summit, so you know you’re in for a special experience.
Built right on the shoreline – just metres from the golden sands of Coppet Hall – and on the reputation of Head Chef Fred Clapperton, Coast makes for an unforgettable dining experience.
As expected, Fred makes the most of Pembrokeshire’s plentiful produce, with flair and imagination.
The building is as spectacular as the food and the views – glass fronted (to make the most of those views), curving and with a Scandi influenced style. All the tables inside boast a sea view and or you can eat outside on the terrace. For all its stylish interior and fantastic food, eating at Coast is a relaxed and informal experience and totally family friendly.
Street food with style! You can find the Cafe Môr mobile boat kitchen ‘Josie June’ at the Old Point House overlooking Angle Beach. Enjoy the sea view and the garden at the outside beach bar while tucking into their award-winning street food. Great seafood, hand-picked local seaweed and classic Welsh dishes, with a modern twist.
If the name seems familiar you may have tasted Cafe Môr’s wares at the Glastonbury Festival or at their previous location at Freshwater West or bought their seafood seasonings and condiments online.
Ferry House Inn Hazelbeach, Milford Haven
With panoramic views over the Cleddau waterway, the Ferry House Inn makes a great B&B base for a Pembrokeshire holiday. But you don’t have to stay at the inn to enjoy the food. Diners can choose from the lunch, bar menu and chef’s specials, of course using fresh locally sourced ingredients.
Being on the Coast Path, the Ferry House Inn is popular with walkers and cyclists as well as holidaymakers so it’s best to book if you want to eat in the evening or on a Sunday.
