Pembrokeshire boasts fertile farmland and miles of glorious coastline.
Which means fantastic agricultural produce, beautifully fresh seafood and a treat for your taste-buds! Legendary Pembrokeshire restaurant Coast, in Saundersfoot, makes the most of the bounties of both land and sea; it’s been named the best in Wales and its head chef Will Holland was 2016 UK Chef of the Year. Meanwhile, for the ultimate in freshness, The Griffin Inn, in Dale, has its own fisherman who catches the restaurant’s fish in his boat, 'Griffin Girl'. True seafood fans should time their visit to coincide with Pembrokeshire Fish Week. Deceptively named, this legendary summer event now spans nine days and includes cookery workshops, fishing expeditions and plenty of delicious dishes to try.
Enjoy 'food moments' year-round: at the charming coastal hamlet Porthgain, watch fishermen with full-to-the-brim lobster pots come ashore, and then tuck into a perfectly-cooked lobster right by the harbour at The Shed. Café Môr, is another discovery you’ll reminisce about long after returning home; situated at Freshwater West beach, the Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company’s 'beach shack' serves fresh-caught lobster in its shell and offers the chance to get hands-on, with seashore picnics and foraging sessions to source your own laverbread - one of Wales’ legendary signature dishes. Discover another local hero product, Pembrokeshire Early Potatoes, which taste distinctive and delicious thanks to the county’s mild, frost-free climate. These special spuds have European Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status, putting them on a par with Welsh Lamb, Welsh Beef and Champagne!
