Great Places to Eat Near St Davids
At the Warpool Court Hotel we pride ourselves on giving you a fantastic dining experience. Our exquisite dishes, made with the finest local ingredients, can be savoured in the stylish surroundings of our Sea View restaurant with its unrivalled views across the stunning St Davids peninsula. Though we know you’ll love the delicious cuisine created by our talented chefs, Pembrokeshire has a lot to offer for the avid foodie. With its lengthy coastline and lush fields, our beautiful county has the best in fresh, high quality produce - from seafood straight off the boat and award-winning sausages to our famous new potatoes, there is a wealth of delectable food on offer in nearby pubs, bistros and restaurants. So, if you’re out and about, here are some suggestions for great places to grab a bite to eat.
Ship Inn, Trefin
Only a 15 minute drive north of St Davids lies Trefin, a charming village situated on the rugged coastline. On the edge of the village, just 200 yards from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, you’ll find the historic Ship Inn, an old stone pub that has been offering warm hospitality since 1797. Sourcing meat from the beautiful Gwaun Valley, fresh fish and seafood from the surrounding waters and champion cheeses from nearby Pant Mawr, this is a great place to sample fantastic local ingredients transformed into traditional pub favourites.
The Shed, Porthgain
Just 3 miles south of Trefin, the snug hamlet of Porthgain nestles into the cliffs in the shadow of the old brickworks. Down by the quay you can lap up the relaxed seaside atmosphere and enjoy a tasty meal at The Shed, a welcoming bistro renowned for its fantastically fresh fish and seafood. Whilst the emphasis is on getting the catch of the day from shore to table, there are other dishes available for those who prefer meat or vegetarian fare. So, whether it’s top quality fish and chips you’re after or something equally appetizing from the bistro menu, this is definitely an eatery worth checking out.
The Cambrian Inn, Solva
Travel just 3 miles south of St Davids and you will come across the lovely village of Solva. Sitting on the northern edge of St Bride’s Bay, this picturesque setting is home to The Cambrian Inn, an establishment with a reputation for quality food situated just 3 minutes’ walk from the harbour. The newly refurbished restaurant creates the perfect atmosphere in which to treat yourself to some classic, hearty food made with delicious local produce. Whether you fancy steak or sausages, suet crust pies or gourmet burgers there’s something here for everyone.
The Grub Kitchen, St Davids
And now for something different...very different! You only need to travel a mile inland along the A487 from St Davids for a more unusual culinary experience. At Dr Beynon’s Bug Farm you will find The Grub Kitchen, an innovative restaurant extolling the virtues of eating insects. But don’t imagine some kind of bush tucker trial in the middle of the Pembrokeshire countryside, this enterprise is rather more sophisticated than that. The insects are combined with superb local ingredients in clever and creative ways to produce some intriguing dishes. If you’re game for a bit of mealworm hummus, zesty black ant-crusted goat’s cheese or apple crumble with toasted bug and shortbread topping, this is the restaurant for you! And don’t worry if you’re not brave enough for bugs, there are plenty of other mouth-watering, insect-free dishes to choose from on their varied menu.
Here at the Warpool Court Hotel we want you to get the best out of your stay in Pembrokeshire and enjoy the wonderful food we produce across the county.
