Booked for a family supper to wind down after having attended a funeral. The food was delicious and the service was great. The fish is beautifully fresh and the puds - well go and see for yourself.

Both food and drink were very overpriced and very underwhelming. This was our third visit over the past 6months and it will definitely be out last. Potential not being met.More

We walked from Parrog and around the Dinas headland, The Sailors then provided us with welcome liquid refreshment! Dog's are not allowed inside, but by staying outside you can enjoy the views from the beach towards Fishguard. Nicely nestled location in a quiet corner
