Really good quality pub grub! I had the best chicken burger of my life there. Will definitely go back again. My sister says the lasagne is delicious too. We sat outside in the sun and took in the Solva high street.

Booked for dinner as were we're a party of 10, we were asked to pre order which worked well. Mussels were great, as were the prawn skewers.. Everyone enjoyed their food, even the most fussy eaters!! Would recommend.

We visited this Inn recently again on a warm late summer's day lunchtime and thought the food was excellent. It has been refurbished, upgraded and "upmarketed" since our last visit but the food was still very good. Probably the best crab sandwich we have ever...More
