Farmers Arms in St David's, West Wales
Farmers Arms, 14-16 Goat Street, St David’s, Haverford West, SA62 6RF
St David’s is in a lovely part of Pembrokeshire and popular for all sorts of water sports, the spectacular Cathedral, and quaint little shops, bars and restaurants. Obviously visiting mid-week rather than weekends means it is a bit quieter and easier to park, especially outside the main holiday season. I also think that the new visitor centre with café, gallery and big car park may have reduced numbers of visitors finding local restaurants for lunch.
Goat Street leads down to St David’s Cathedral, and a little way down on the right is the Farmers Arms, a traditional pub serving good quality pub food. The food was cooked well, served quite quickly, and portions are certainly ample for most appetites.
Two pork loins are served in a whole-pepper creamy sauce resting on herby mashed potato and topped with crispy onion rings – very well presented. The chicken slices were sandwiched with thick-cut slices of bacon and a barbecue sauce, served with chips and salad. We both enjoyed our meals and decided against a dessert so, altogether the meal was great value costing less than £25 for two of us. As a pub restaurant, you also have a choice of different beers and lagers rather than just wine. Very comfortable and enjoyable, one to recommend and visit again in the future.
