The Boathouse Tearoom is a little National Trust cafe, located by the world's smallest harbour and offering a great selection of hot and cold food to sustain visitors on the half-mile trek to Barafundle Bay. We tried the scones with home-made jam and clotted cream and bought some locally produced honey.
Cromwell's Tavern is a friendly local pub, found near the castle in the heart of Pembroke.
It's a great place to try Welsh bitters and admire all the music memorabilia: framed pictures of Kiss, Jimi Hendrix and others line the walls and we didn't dare take on the locals at pool, after spotting all the trophies in a glass cabinet!

Just before the little road which leads down to Barafundle Bay is the Stackpole Inn. A great little pub with fantastic beers and even better food. Recommended to anyone before or after a trip to Barafundle.
As someone who drinks real ale and likes homely food in real pubs I would say you just have to visit the Speculation Inn on the road to Freshwater West in Pembrokeshire. Locals range from surfers and oil refinery workers to local farmers and international consultants....all chasing that rabbit pie and Reverent James! Since Gerry and Teresa (Owners) put a wood burning stove in the front bar the heat has caused beer sales to go up by 36%.
The Badger Bolt (run or walk across lanes and paths from another pub) takes place 24th Feb and that night the Speculation hosts the Badger Bash! (live music, no animals will be harmed in the pursuit of pleasure).
Take the road to Freshwater West beach from Pembroke and The Spec is on a sharp bend ....can't miss it.
