There’s nothing quite like perching on a harbour wall gazing out at the sea with a portion of local, golden fish and chips on your knee. It’s what coastal holiday dreams are made of! Here are our top 5 places for fish and chips in Pembrokeshire.
The streets of Tenby are lined with foodie delights, and particularly during summer months, the air is filled with the smell of fish and chips from the independent restaurants that abound here. Our favourite is D Fecci & Sons. The friendly atmosphere makes visiting here a joy, and it’s one of the few places that caters so completely for allergies and food preferences, making sure no one misses out on their sustainably caught fish and locally grown potato chips. Try their wheat-free batter, made from ground rice and potato!
If you choose to holiday in Porthgain, this is bound to become your favourite restaurant! This characterful seaside restaurant/cafe serves refined dishes alongside their much-loved fish and chip menu. Booking is essential at most times of the year if you’d like a table, although we love ordering a takeaway and walking the few metres to the harbour wall for a sunset alfresco meal. Careful though, the homemade cakes will tempt you even after a healthy dose of fish and chips!
Located slap bang in the middle of St Davids is Peters Plaice, a longstanding fish and chip shop. They have more recently expanded their menu to include delicious burgers, wraps and specials like chilli and rice. It’s the perfect place to fuel up after a day on the coast. If you fancy eating in, there’s a large dining area and well stocked bar. On a sunny day we recommend collecting your food and eating it on Cross Square watching the world go by.
This is a takeaway and large, traditional restaurant area that’s perfect for families. Something’s Cooking has been the go-to for fish and chips in Pembrokeshire for many years. The takeaway is perfect for picking up and taking the short drive to the coast. Alternatively, head here after a day on the beach with tired kids to enjoy fantastic food in an easy going atmosphere. The menu is extensive and full of comfort food that everyone will love.
Nestled next to the river in Lower Solva is 35 Main Street. A fantastic cafe serving fish and chips among other imaginative dishes. Vegetarians ought to try the battered halloumi! Sit on the terrace in summer and enjoy the view of the glistening river as it flows into the harbour beyond. In chillier months cosy up inside where fairy lights twinkle and hot chocolate flows. Dogs are very welcome, and there’s sometimes a resident schnauzer snoozing in the corner.
