A light lunch of home made soup from an Italian recipe was rounded off with probably the most delicious dessert I've had in a long while - and I was not the only one to enjoy such an experience.
But, this is a popular place with locals and visitors to Pembrokeshire - of which there are many! The dishes are prepared and cooked on site in the small kitchen and waiting and people watching is a necessary past-time. The wait is not too long but this is not a fast food restaurant and when it arrives - it is a delight, not surprisingly so as the two chefs have an abundance of experience at a high level.
The dining room is cosy but there is plenty of room in the adjoining areas and service is both pleasant, helpful and understanding.
It is easy to underestimate this place: don't! The food is as good, if not better, than many restaurants who shout how good they are and at a cost that is much lower: and the menu changes from time to time.
In winter there are some evening meals that again surpass expectations. But book early as these are as popular as the daytime options.
For me the best judge of Nant-y-Coy is that if it were nearer it would be a regular favourite.

Called in yesterday morning on the way to Manorbier and in serious need of a caffeine and sugar fix - was delighted to find they did takeaway coffee and cake! The lovely lady who served me was extremely helpful and friendly - providing a box to put coffees in to avoid spilling. The cakes were all home made and amazing - we had a selection: - date & oat slice, Breton tart, carrot cake, chocolate brownie and lemon drizzle cake and they all went down a storm with the family! Highly recommend calling in to this lovely place in a very pretty setting. We will call again the next time we're in the area. Thank you!

We live locally, so have visited this wonderful place many times over the years - with various different managers/chefs. Never had a bad experience. The food is wonderful, service friendly and the location is special. Whether you want a full lunch or just a drink/cake, you will not be disappointed. Everything is fresh and produced on the premises. Plenty of healthy options, salad, vegetables. Vegans and veggies well catered for. We will be back soon! ps The new gift shop is well worth a visit too, as well as the walk down the valley or up onto the Rock. Sitting outside when the weather is right is also lovely, even with the busy road outside.

Popped to the Nant y Coy Mill for lunch today. What a little gem. Restaurant area is clean and nicely presented. Menu choice was different, lots of good wholesome dishes. Desserts were scrumptious-I can recommend the chocolate torte and lemon posset. Wish I'd bothered to pop in a long time ago. The adjoining gift shop has tasteful items produced in Wales, stunning cushions, lampshades, candles etc. It is so easy on this fast road to just drive by the Nant y Coy Mill, but I'll certainly make the effort to stop next time.

We have called here several times now - though to be honest only for the cakes. The meals though, are freshly cooked from a limited specials menu and look simply fantastic!

The Almond and coconut torte with mango sorbet and raspberry couli is just to die for. The scones are sumptious and the cakes are devine. Decent coffee too!

It is not cheap here, so dont think it is, BUT the sheer quality and freshness really does make it worthwhile to pay that little extra.

Marion and John and all the team make you feel very welcome and at ease. There is also a nice woodland walk/trail you can do there alongside the stream and old mill - though do wear sensible shoes as it can be a bit damp in places. The view from right at the top of the meadow is wonderful.

There is usually a dog bowl for water and dogs are welcome on the terrace/courtyard area outside.

We really will go there for a lunch one day!
