We needed to visit Pembroke on business and found this cafe at about 2.30pm. It was very quiet and we were the only people. There was no one to take our order for lunch even though we saw instructions to order at the counter. After much calling someone appeared and we gave our order. Both my wife and I had... More

Following on from watching the "Me before you" film , we decided to visit the castle ( where ever it was ) .. This led us to booking this accommodation in Pembroke through Trivago and hotels.com due to the close proximity to the castle .. What a mistake .. The hotel is awful like a rundown blackpool B&B . When... More

We were visiting the area on a very wet Sunday. The cafe was quiet when we went in but it became busier. The food was great for the price. My husband had a huge cooked breakfast & I had a lasagna. The chips were a really treat - proper chips, not the usual oven baked type. I would have given... More

Having walked round Pembroke castle we were feeling peckish and found this lovely place on the high street. The owner was a nice bloke and we chatted away with him about trade and the shooting of a film taking place in the town that day. We both ordered the mega breakfast and a coffee and it was really tasty and... More

Hosted by Peter and his family you get a menue on paper and even a better one by Peter's verbal description. Prices are lower than in the other main street restaurants and the food is at least as good. Very recommendable!

We came in here for a scone and cappuccino. The cappuccino was poor quality, sour tasting. The scone was warm and quite big, but the jam was poor quality and the cream was whip creame, not proper cream, tables and chairs were dirty.

Was welcomed in with good humour, friendly and chatty staff who couldn't do enough for us! Outlay clean and pleasant. Ordered a mega all day breakfast and two small for the children (specially cooked as they had finished small breakfast at 11:30) Food was as expected, big and filling! No complaints. Overall good food and great service!
