There is nothing quite like finishing in a good pub at the end of a long days’ walk. Here’s Will Renwick’s pick of some of Pembrokeshire’s best

A couple of years ago I spent 63 days walking around Wales on the coast path and Offa’s Dyke, starting and finishing at my front door. Along the way I made sure to stop at just about every pub I came across, and as I found out, the cream of the crop are in Pembrokeshire…

The Griffin Inn, Dale

The seafront-sitting Griffin Inn is only a short walk from Marloes: a long sandy beach with tall cliffs and huge slabs of boulders and jagged rocks.

The Golden Lion, Newport

Head here to sample the cask ales of the Preseli hills-based Bluestone Brewing Company. from the pub, good walking options are a climb up the rocky-topped Carningli Mountain or a wander (east or west) along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

The Sloop Inn, Porthgain

Old fishermen’s pub with lots of history displayed on its walls. It’s only a short walk from ‘the Blue Lagoon’ at Abereiddy– a flooded quarry that’s perfect for a swim.

The Old Point House, Angle

Dates back to the 1500s and doesn’t seem to have changed much either. Make sure to try the circular walk around the Angle peninsula. It visits freshwater west beach which was used in 2010 for filming scenes for both harry Potter and robin hood.

Other great pubs on the Welsh coast

Ty Coch, Llyn Peninsula

Inaccessible by car and so close to the beach you’ll have to stamp the sand off your feet before you enter. A great place to start or finish a hike along the north Llyn coast as well.

The Plough and Harrow, Vale of Glamorgan

A short walk from the coast that’s worth making. It dates back to 1383, and many of the original features remain, including the ceiling support beams that were salvaged from ships wrecked off the nearby beach at Monknash.

The Ship Inn, Anglesey

Sits right at the very end of Red Wharf Bay, one of the largest beaches in Wales. Worth the walk to get to if you’re approaching from the southern end of the beach.
