    Coast

    The spectacular beachfront setting is more than matched by the wizardry emanating from chef Tom Hines' kitchen at this award-winning restaurant. Whether you choose from the adventurous 'Tom's menu' or opt for something simpler and slightly cheaper from the lunchtime 'Pebble menu' (£28 for three courses), prepare to be wowed. Local seafood shines, and the service is great, too.

    Canteen

    With names like Strumble Head, Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (Land of My Fathers) and Costa del Newport, the Canteen's lip-smacking range of thin, crispy, stone-baked pizza has been suitably Welshified with the addition of locally sourced quality toppings. It also serves burgers, salads, better-than-average coffee and a range of Welsh craft beer.

    Cliff

    Candles flicker and the views stretch for miles from the dining room of this upmarket restaurant attached to the St Brides Spa Hotel. Lovely local produce, especially seafood, is finessed into satisfying modern British dishes such as halibut with fennel, kale and Saundersfoot shellfish.

    Plantagenet House

    Atmosphere-wise, this place instantly impresses; it's perfect for a romantic, candlelit dinner. Tucked down an alley in Tenby's oldest house, parts of which date to the 10th century, it's dominated by an immense 12th-century Flemish chimney hearth. The menu features local seafood, organic beef, and plenty of choices for vegetarians.

    Gourmet Pig

    Delicious sandwiches, samosas, Iberian-accented deli platters (laden with chorizo, jamón, sobrassada and manchego), pies and pastries are the main attractions at this relaxed deli-cafe, along with barista-made Coaltown coffee (roasted in Ammanford). Grab a window seat and watch Fishguard go about its business. There are also plenty of tempting imported (and local) treats to take away.

    Stackpole Inn

    This wonderful country pub is a cosy place on a wet day, with a gas fire, beamed ceilings and whitewashed walls, while the garden is perfect for a summer's pint. However, it's the food that really draws people here – hearty, rustic dishes made from the best Welsh seasonal produce. Four simple but stylish bedrooms (single/double from £60/90) are housed in a neighbouring building.

    Llys Meddyg

    From the slate floor and leather armchairs in the wonderfully cosy cellar bar to the modern art in the elegant dining room, this place oozes style. The menu utilises local, seasonal produce and while it doesn't always hit all the right notes, the desserts and cocktails are excellent. It's attached to an upmarket boutique hotel.

    The Shed

    Housed in a beautifully converted machine shop right by the harbour, this simple little bistro is renowned as one of Pembroke­shire's best seafood restaurants. Fish and chips get their own separate menu, while the main menu relies where it can on the day's fresh catch, alongside favourites such as Porthgain lobster. It gets insanely busy on sunny holiday days.

    Original St Davids Oggie

    What's an oggie, you ask? Well, think of a Cornish pasty, only with the crimp on the top and a slightly lighter pastry. They come in meat, chicken, cheesey and veggie versions, and make an ideal on-the-go snack – it's said oggies have been made since the 13th century. Based on the ground floor of the Coach House.

    Golden Lion

    With quality pub grub on offer, this relaxed traditional inn is a great choice for a meal, especially if you've got kids in tow. It gets busy on weekend nights, especially on Saturdays when there's usually a live band playing. If you're staying in the pleasant rooms upstairs, never fear – it's all over by midnight.

    Plum Vanilla

    Adorned with technicolor chandeliers and vividly painted walls, this friendly little bohemian cafe has a loyal local clientele who flock here for the cooked breakfasts, homemade soups, interesting wholefoods and salads, daily specials and luscious desserts (the salted-caramel vegan cheesecake is wonderful). You may have to wait for a table at lunchtime.

    Cambrian Inn

    The Cambrian Inn blends old and new with exposed stonework and original beams but a decidedly contemporary style. It serves an interesting menu of upmarket pub classics, including meat pies, steaks, seafood and delicious gourmet burgers (try the Fat Cow). It also has five bright and colourful guest rooms upstairs, and others in a neighbouring building.

    Bishops

    A friendly, rambling pub full of locals, walkers and blow-ins, this place serves hearty pub grub with a smile. There's a roaring fire in winter, a decent pint on offer and great cathedral views from the beer garden. Don't be put off by table names such as 'The Bitches' – that refers to a tidal race between Ramsey Island and the mainland.

    Mooring

    Although it's anchored to the High St, this fresh, modern eatery drifts breezily from a daytime cafe serving comfort food (cooked breakfasts, sandwiches, bangers and mash, mac cheese) to a sophisticated bistro in the evening, serving dishes such as spicy fish stew with tomato, cannellini beans and local mussels. The coffee's good, too.

    Ferry Inn

    This great old pub has grafted on a glassed-in pavilion to make the most of its extraordinary riverside views. The food is excellent, particularly the Sunday roasts and the pastry-less Ferry Fish Pie, which comes crammed with salmon, prawns, scallops, mussels and cockles in a béchamel sauce, topped with a cheesy, bread crumb.

    Dragon Inn

    Stone walls, slab floors and low ceilings all hint at the venerable age of this village pub. It's some 7 miles to the sea, but the kitchen specialises in 'local' seafood, including mackerel, lobster and whatever else is fresh. For Sunday lunch, three courses (including delights such 10-hour roast beef) cost just £15.

    Waterman's Arms

    The Waterman's crowd-pleasing menu includes the likes of lamb shanks, burgers, steaks, curries and giant Yorkshire puddings laden with meat and gravy. The terrace is a suntrap on a summer afternoon, with fine views across the Mill Pond to the castle and St Mary's. There's often live music at weekends.

    Georges

    Gargoyles on leashes guard the door of this trippy, hippy gift shop that doubles as an offbeat cafe. The Georges has cosy nooks of stained glass and candlelight, lanterns and fairy lights, along with a simple menu of home-cooked food ranging from steak to pasta to curry.

    St Davids Food & Wine
