After a good walk on the surrounding cliffs it was great to be served up an excellent meal in the Cambrian. Service is very attentive and friendly. The restaurant was full so it is obviously very popular, booking is essential.

As other posters have said, this is more a restaurant than a pub now and I wouldn't take a dog there. Outside on the patio I am sure is OK

With dishes like our Pembrokeshire Wagyu beef burger using the finest meat reared in the county and a selection of fresh fish caught daily by Solva fishermen you can get a true taste of Pembrokeshire.The main dining room, with it’s exposed stonework, original pitch pine beams and contemporary furnishings provides the perfect environment for you and your party to enjoy your selection of dishes and wines that have been carefully put together by the resident Head Chef, Matthew Cox and his team.
