Dined here the other day after eating in the other Marstons Pembroke Dock!
Similar feel to the other, but the food is very much lacking! Nowhere near as nice as Pembroke Dock and due to a different pricing structure, it does work out more expensive for not as nice food!
I ordered the same dish in both restaurants and there is very little comparison!
Still all frozen veg and soggy chips! Can no one peel a spud anymore!

Thank you for your recent TripAdvisor Review, it is with concern that I read the difficulties you encountered upon your recent visit, any time a guest leaves disappointed is a matter of great concern for us. This is certainly not the standard we expect. I will speak to the team and brief them on the areas they fell short. Once again I would like to apologise for the issues you raised in this review, and would like to reassure you that our aim of continuous improvement from one visit to the next remains as strong as ever. Kind Regards

This review is based purely on our visit. The tables were sticky, the time it took for the staff to seat us was shocking. The staff then took their sweet time taking our order, I could of walked to broad haven and back. The food took that much time I thought they had gone aboard to get it. The drinks we ordered took 25mins. The time we went to the pub was when it wasn't even busy. Twice we've been and twice its been shocking. The 2nd time we went was to give it another chance and to impress my parents. How wrong we got that. Quality of food was poor. Jacket Tate was hard as rock. Chicken which my mum had was dry.

Unfortunately the chair I would have been sitting on was absolutely filthy with food, loose and stains. I moved it and used another. The first glass that the waiter put on the table had an obvious lipstick mark on it so I quickly handed it back to him. The second glass had a sharp chip in it but I drank from the other side and did point this out to the waiter at the end of the meal. My steak was tough, possibly I shouldn't have asked for it to be well done but there we are. Mushrooms dried up and the 'beef' tomato was hardly that. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and trying to do their best but I'm disappointed today whereas in the past I have had a very nice meal here.

We visited this restaurant on two occasions during our week long stay in Fishguard. We were very impressed the first time and decided to go back to try the Sunday lunch. Well I must say this was the best Sunday roast I have ever had anywhere in the British Isles. Half a spit roasted chicken covered with a choice of sauces. The fluffiest roast potatoes imaginable and a mix of vegetables that included red cabbage cooker in a fabulous sweet sauce.

The portions here are enormous but I couldn't resist forcing down a wonderful apple crumble for afters. The staff were friendly polite and attentive and seemed genuinely appreciative of the praise we gave them.

Other reviews have mentioned unruly kids. Well sadly this was evident for a short time whilst we were there but I refuse to blame the restaurant. This is due to bad parenting and seems to be a synod the times. Sad but true!
