I spent two nights on a business trip to Pembroke Dock. Having been disappointed by the food at The Shipwright on the first night, I thought I'd try somewhere different on the second and chose The Welshman's Arms instead. I'm very pleased that I did. The interior is cosy and inviting. The welcome could not have been warmer, including that from Henry, the pub's enormous (and very gentle) Irish Wolfhound. Only one real ale was on (a wider choice would have been nice), but what I had was well kept and reasonably priced (£2.90 a pint). The food was cooked to order by Jenny, who was happy to cook pretty much anything you asked for. My chicken breast wrapped in bacon came on a huge plate with excellent sauté potatoes, homemade coleslaw, beetroot, onion rings and a salad. Really good honest pub food. £12.50, which was good value considering the size of the portion. I was even given a free bowl of homemade tomato soup before my main, just because they wanted to know what I thought. It was delicious, packed with flavour. If you find yourself in Pembroke Dock, I would definitely recommend a visit. I hear the Sunday roasts are good too.

“Jennifer, the landlady continues to keep a real welcome and the food is brilliant as always.”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

What can you say? I've been working away from home for 35 years and stay at digs, b&b's and hotels so I always stay here, when I work in the area.
The wecome is just outstanding and the food is always excellent.
But wait there's more...... wait till you meet Henry.
Now that is a surprise.
