Popped in for a drink one Saturday afternoon and six hours later after several drinks and a meal we managed to leave! Lovely cosy, friendly pub that serves great pub food!

The food here is really good and plenty of it, Sunday lunch is a must, they didn't have the fire on when we were here but when they do it makes it really cosy, definately a place to go to to eat

The Five Arches was the first place we visited on a recent break in Tenby and it was a good choice. The lighting is low, creating a cosy, intimate atmosphere and there are no blaring TV sets - a big plus. Wi-fi is reliable and furniture is comfortable. Staff friendly and prices reasonable.

Had a quick drink in here one Monday late afternoon. The real ale was a nice pint and surroundings are pleasant and comfortable but it's a busy pub So maybe if you are looking for a quiet drink it may not be for you.

Just had the most excellent of meals; piping hot, generous portions and quality second to none. Chilli, cottage pie, steak and guiness pie and broccoli pasta bake. Recommend to each and all. Very friendly staff and good beer as well.

Very friendly welcome, 2 good beers on tap: Rev. James & Hancocks. Kids are allowed in the pub, which I think is a shame, but no TV which helped to make it a good atmosphere.

Had a fabulous Sunday lunch here, so fresh and tasty. We took our two youngest grandchildren with us, the staff were so helpful and friendly. Lovely comfortable seating areas, homely and cosy. Highly recommend, can't wait to go back!

We visit the five arches quite often as a family,lovely pub with great food.the roast chicken is the best I've ever had and a good size portion at a reasonable price would highly recommend a visit 😊 the only downside is I visited yesterday and it was full as the upstairs was closed so I had to go elsewhere which...

Spent a very nice, relaxing evening, drinking fine local ales and listening to locals and tourists chatting and having fun. Nice, open fire and friendly staff.
