Love the Five Arches - quirky, cosy and friendly! Had the daily roast on our last visit and it was delicious! Fresh veg, boiling hot when served with a home made taste! Will definitely be back for another!

Dropped in to the Five Arches Tavern for a drink when we visited Tenby. Lovely pub, a good choice of ales, great atmosphere and friendly staff. We didn't eat but the locals were recommending the food. The food being served looked really good and freshly cooked. Definitely worth a visit while in Tenby.......a lovely pub..

We popped in for pre dinner drinks on a cold December night and were welcomed by a roaring fire, great atmosphere and a plentiful supply of alcohol. Just what was required to kick off the weekend.
