Sharing a holiday with your dog makes it extra special, and they will love Pembrokeshire as much as you do! Mornings sniffing along the coast path, afternoons running across beaches, and evenings snoozing in front of the fire at your dog-friendly cottage. To make your holiday in Pembrokeshire even more enjoyable, here are 8 fantastic dog-friendly places to eat that will welcome you and your pooch with open arms.
Grain is the latest edition to St Davids and is fast becoming a firm favourite! It’s a mostly outdoor venue with cosy hut booths and fairy lights and serves up some of the best pizza around. Start off with an antipasti board and a pint of some of their local craft beer before tucking into pizza and their delicious dough balls!
The partitioned seating means that your four-legged friend can relax by your feet feeling like they’re in their own little world with their favourite people.
Sitting on Cross Square in the centre of the smallest city in the UK is St Davids Cross Hotel, known locally as ‘The Cross.’ Dogs are welcome in the large beer garden or the bar area, and so you have the choice when tucking into their beautiful food. The menu is full of delicious pub classics, as well as some you might not expect. This all comes alongside a cocktail menu that is more than tempting. Head here for breakfast, lunch, evening meals or afternoon tea!
Mamgu Welshcakes nestles in the lower part of the harbour village of Solva, and it is well worth a visit. They began by griddling their own homemade Welshcakes at festivals, and soon opened a cafe serving breakfasts and lunches. Naturally, each dish usually features a welshcake. Even their cooked breakfast comes with two Leek and Cheese Welshcakes on the side. Eat in, where dogs are allowed, or grab a takeaway and head to the beach!
The Farmers Arms boasts one of the sunniest beer gardens in Pembrokeshire (we reckon), and with a spectacular view over St Davids Cathedral and the sea beyond. Dogs are very welcome here, and water bowls are dotted around to prove it. A cosy traditional pub out of season, The Farmers comes into its own on a sunny day when the outdoor bar opens its shutters. Grab a Pimms and an Angry Dog Burger, and let your pooch snooze in the sun.
Just around the corner from The Farmers is The Bishops! A traditional coastal pub with exposed beams and a roaring fire makes it the perfect place to warm up after winter coast path walks. In the summer, head to the terrace and watch the sun go down behind the Cathedral. Pub classics abound here, and we are always tempted by the fish and chips. Dogs are welcome inside and out!
A new addition to St Davids, but an old favourite in Pembrokeshire. The Mill has relocated from Trefin and we could not feel luckier to have it on our doorstep! Famed locally for their incredible breakfast menu (available to take away too!) The Mill also offers lunch and evening meal options. Check out their Facebook page for the latest menu. Dogs are very welcome, and they will love it, especially with the chance of a stray sausage!
Tucked away next to Solva harbour, 35 Main Street is a fantastic option for local seafood beautifully prepared. Their fish and chips are delicious, and there’s lots more on their lunch and evening menu. Breakfast on the terrace here is stunning as the harbour glistens in the morning sunlight, and evenings spent in the cosy cafe/restaurant are a delight. Dogs are welcome, and the resident dog Tilly is often around to do the welcoming!
Although dogs are only welcome when dining at outdoor tables at The Shed, we had to include them in this list because of just how welcome those dogs are! Water bowls, head scratches and treats await the furrier members of the family, while you choose from a menu jam-packed with fish and chips and more refined seafood dishes. Eat outdoors and watch the tide ebb and flow from the harbour as seagulls glide overhead.
