“Never lets you down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

Every time we visit haverfordwest we have lunch here. I've tried a lot of meals off the menu and have never been disappointed. If I had to pick a favourite it would be their steak sizzlers. Their burgers are also excellent....and a good variety! Its nice to see they're in competition with wetherspoons...and I would recommend people eat here instead as the service and food is a lot better!

“Large menu - plates piled high!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Pub in the town centre with good disabled access and facilities. One thing to note is that they don't take credit /debit cards which has caught us out. The food is always good, hot and large portions. The menu consits of regular pub specials, jackets, fry ups, and range off burgers, chickens dishes, steaks grills etc. Also sandwiches and afternoon teas.

The staff are always cheerful and friendly and give good customer service. There are a couple of large dining areas with plenty of seating, towards the back of the pub is a pool table and outside a large paved area for smoking etc. We visit regularly and have never had any problems with the food. Don't tell everyone but there's an hour free parking at the back of the market which is handy for a lunchtime visit!

“Excellent Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Burger and a pint every time! Nice to see the local pubs competing with the likes of Wetherspoons even on price with some items. Do not hesitate to pop in here for a quick lunch if you are in town and make sure to grab a burger!

ZZ top is my favourite.

Beer is also excellent. The friars is also our starting point if we are having a night out in Haverfordwest and they have a brilliant atmosphere in the evening.

“Brilliant place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Have been in here numerous times, with a friend and in a big group, excellent service, lovely food, massive portions, always consistent, well worth a visit! Does get pretty busy and loud on the weekend but it's a pub so to be expected really, overall its a lovely place :)
