Relaxing outside the pub under a thin
layer of strato-cumulus, June 1997

An easy pub to find with a very warm welcome from the landlord and locals within the recently converted station building. Just follow the signs to Pembroke Dock Station, or I suppose you could always buy a train ticket right to the door of this Victorian building. It's wonderful to see this previously empty building used as a fine pub. Since visiting in 1996, 1997 and 1999 I understand that big changes have taken place at the pub. The Pembroke brewery run by Dave Lightly, who I've met on a number of occasions and whose wonderful real ales I shall always remember, has sadly closed. The large range of Pembroke beers has now been replaced by a range of real ales produced outside the town but are still popular with locals and visitors alike. The beer festival which we visited on 3 occasions still takes place, in fact there are 3 per year now in the spring, summer and autumn, but you'll have to call them for exact dates.

The pub also has its own restaurant serving high quality local produce though I've not as yet sampled the food myself.
