It’s that time of year, isn’t it? Evenings are drawing in, log fires are lit and Sundays are for muddy coast path walks and a roast. Here’s our pick of the best places for Sunday lunch in Pembrokeshire.
The Cambrian Inn in Lower Solva is wonderfully cosy for a scrumptious roast dinner, with a traditional dining room with original beams and exposed stonework. After lunch, head across the road to the Bluebell Woods, which make a lovely riverside walk even without their springtime carpet of bluebells. No Sunday lunch in Pembrokeshire is complete without a walk apres-lunch!
You will often hear The Mill talked about in regard to its frankly incredible breakfast offering, and that is definitely worth checking out, but they do a lovely Sunday lunch too! The Mill has recently relocated from the small village of Trefin to the centre of St Davids. Their roasted meats remain locally sourced and marinated to perfection! After lunch, why not indulge in some retail therapy? The Mill shares a street with lovely independent shops like Basalt & Dune and The Peepal Tree.
Crug Glas is a country house tucked away just outside Solva. With rolling grounds and wooded area, it’s a lovely place to walk around before or after a Sunday lunch there. The ingredients are all sourced locally, some from the grounds of Crug Glas themselves, and so the menu changes each week depending on what is available. As well as the delicious food, highlights include the fantastic gin selection and the dessert menu, which is full of homemade delights that will see you heading back to your holiday cottage to recline and reminisce on a truly scrumptious lunch!
Tucked away at the bottom of St Davids next to the Cathedral, The Refectory is a cafe/restaurant serving beautiful lunches and coffees. On Sundays, their carvery is not to be missed. For those who want something a bit different, and perhaps have a smaller appetite, there’s the option of a hot carvery sandwich, which has our mouths watering just thinking about it!
Sunday roasts are back for the season at St Davids Gin and Kitchen! This lovely restaurant is located in the heart of St Davids and home to St Davids Gin, made using locally foraged botanicals. They also serve up a fantastic Sunday lunch! Choose from traditional roasts, inventive vegetarian options, and local seafood dishes.
Further North lies The Golden Lion, which locals all over Pembrokeshire will recommend as a ‘must visit’ any day of the week! Sunday is no different, and their roasts are fantastic. Cosy up in the bar area for a drink after your meal, and then you are perfectly located to walk it off on Newport Beach!
Perched overlooking the sea in the tiny village of Nolton, The Haven Brasserie is a vibrant, friendly restaurant that serves sublime food, using the best quality local ingredients in all of their dishes. Their Sunday roasts return for the autumn, and we will be hot-footing there as soon as we can! Stretch your legs with a walk on the coast path after lunch, or sit on the terrace and take in the view!
This is an award-winning restaurant where you will be met with an incredibly warm welcome and enjoy delicious food. They are very dog friendly, and there may be a treat and a log fire waiting for the four-legged members of your party! Stackpole Inn is set in a beautiful part of Pembrokeshire, and so if you’re travelling here from St Davids it is well worth making a day of it.
Head inland to Tafarn Sinc, in the heart of Preseli, the mountainous areas of Pembrokeshire with a beautifully different landscape to the St Davids Peninsula. This is a laid-back, traditional local’s pub that serves down-to-earth and delicious pub food, including a Sunday roast. Be sure to stay for pudding, especially if homemade crumble is on the menu!
