The service staff is really nice and so helpful - any questions what to do and see around you will get there! Food is good, but nothing special and quite expensive. You will find cheaper Restaurants in St. Davids, just 10mins away ;)

A small exhibition was taking place and there is an on-site two room museum. Other than that not much to see here. The building is rather unusual and there is plenty of information inside regarding all nearby areas.

Our friends raved about this - we initially thought "well there are lots of great looking cafes in St Davids - why come to this one?" It soon became clear. Loads of parking, good cakes etc and a super shop with original art, and a great little art gallery in the lower ground floor. The architecture is also good -... More

Cafe, art gallery, craft outlets. We particularly enjoyed the exhibition in the tower by a local artist as we recognised some of the landscapes.

I cannot remember this facility from previous visits. It provided a huge car park (parking used to be a problem in St David's). The cafe was excellent with a good choice of food; good shop with information. Sadly on the day we called the gallery was not open but it looked good from the outside.
