Pubs

Pubs and pub talk are integral to climbing and it is important to know where the best places are to hang out after a tiring day at the crag. There are many more pubs than listed below but these tend to be of most interest to climbers.

  • St Govan’s Inn - Bosherston, Pembrokeshire. Tel: (01646) 661311. Real ales and a full menu. THE pub for post-crag anaylsis.
  • Swanlake Inn – Jameston, Manorbier, Pembrokeshire. Tel: (01834) 871262
  • The Armstrong Arms – Jasons Corner, Stackpole, Pembrokeshire. Tel: (01646) 672324
  • The Salutation – On the road from Pembroke to Castlemartin.
  • Farmer’s Arms - Goat Street, St David’s. The best pub for Barcud. Good food and an outside terrace.

Cafés

Around here, café means pots of tea and toasted tea cakes while greasy full set breakfasts are hard to find. The following two are the ones best situated for the climbing areas:

  • The Olde Worlde Café (Ma Weston’s) – The legendary café situated next to the pub in Bosherston.
  • Jones Café - In St David’s. 8am opening, with great grub and coffee.

Food Supplies

There are three late-opening Mini-markets, one on the way into Pembroke, one on the main street, and the final one is on the road to Tenby. For more choice (and better prices) try the supermarket on the main street. For big shops head towards Pembroke Dock and you can’t miss the monster Tescos. St David’s has a small Mini-market.

Take-aways

All climbing areas need their take aways, there should be lots of them, with lots of different choices of food and they should all be open early on Sunday evenings, so that you can grab a bite before the long drive home. Pembroke is quite good on this latter point and has a good spread of Fish & Chips, Chinese, Indian, pizzas, chicken and burgers.
