“Proper boozer”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

This pub is thankfully caught in a time warp. It is still a proper boozer where you get served good beer without the gastro bit, long may it last.

“The best place in pembroeshire”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

We love 'the quay' as we locals call it ! It's the best place to be on a sunny evening in Pembrokeshire ! We go whenever we can, the winter is good as they have a lovely fire going in the bar ! But the summer evenings are best , sitting outside & meeting up with friends. They don't do food, but they don't need to ! When the tide in & the boats pull up its fab ! We've been the last two evenings, as the weather has been lovely ,and its been busy !

“Not a restaurant but a great pub..”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

If you're in West Wales you must find this little nugget of a pub. It's like stepping back in time at this pub. Decent beer poured from a barrel into a jug and then into your glass. Then take it outside and drink while enjoying the view across the quay. Some fine characters gather at this pub.
We always take friends and visitors to this pub and they enjoy the experience. No food served, only crisps nuts etc but they often have a hog roast in the summer..

“location very quiet”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

its an old inn where you can sit outside enjoying the sunshine and the water running in the stream across the road , there are narrow roads to get there but worth a visit .

“great place”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

Terrific local pub on the water- a visit at high tide is a real experience, cars, boats, people and a disappearing car park, just be careful where you leave your car. No food except on Fridays in the summer when there are barbecues in aid of various charities - or perhaps a hog roast. A really friendly atmosphere despite the heaving masses from car enthusiasts to children trying out the stepping stones ( not advisable at high tide though)
