Pub in Cwm Gwaun

Dyffryn Arms

If the step-back-in-time feel of Cwm Gwaun isn't visceral enough, drop into the Dyffryn Arms. Better known as Bessie's after its legendary octogenarian landlady, this rare survivor of yesteryear occupies what's basi…
Pub in St Davids (Tyddewi)

Farmer's Arms

Even though St Davids is a bit of a tourist trap, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more authentic, gregarious locals' pub. There's real ale and Guinness on tap, and it's the place to be when the rugby's playing. A ba…

Pub in Newport (Trefdraeth)

Llwyngwair Arms

Pub in Newport (Trefdraeth)

Old Sailors

Built in 1593, this remote and rustic place on the western side of Dinas Island is a great place to break a coast walk with a pint and a quick bite. The sunsets from the beer garden are glorious.
Pub in Tenby (Dinbych Y Pysgod)

Tenby House

This lively pub has DJs on the weekends, and a sunny, flower-bedecked courtyard for summer afternoon sessions.
