Reviewed 26 September 2021

I'm a bit confused about all the positive reviews here (indeed we decided to eat here on the basis of the reviews). I don't enjoy writing negative reviews but this was not a food pub at all. We visited on a Sunday. There was no...menu and we were told there was only a choice of either roast beef or roast chicken. Nothing else was being served. The meat was ok but the vegetables tasted either over cooked or as if from a frozen bag. The bartender was not particularly friendly or welcoming and he didn't seem happy that we were ordering food at all. Admittedly we had not booked but were asked to come back an hour later despite the pub being fairly empty both when we first arrived and when we came back. The pub itself is pretty run down and not a very nice environment. It wasn't terrible but definitely worse than simply unexceptional.More

Popped into the Cardiff Arms for a cuppa after visiting the castle. They were serving lunch and there were 14 of us but they were happy for us to only have drinks. Really friendly. Diolch yn fawr iawn 😊

Called in for lunch after a rainy visit to the castle! The food was faultless. kids - chicken goujons were pieces of breast and lovely, vegetable lasagne was divine, homemade tomato soup perfect and the bacon egg and chips delicious!!! Would recommend without question!!! Definitely...worth the visit!! πŸ˜€More

We had just done a circular walk from Cilgerran Castle, through the wildlife centre and through the Teifi Gorge so, on our return, when we saw that the Cardiff Arms was open, it was like spotting an oasis in the desert. What a lovely cozy...tidy bar area, but the outside spaces were even better, loads of room and comfy chairs everywhere, so, room to social distance to your hearts content. I ordered the tuna melt on ciabatta and my partner ordered the dirty hot dog (?) they were both HUGE and delicious. I also had a white wine spritzer which I have to say was the best during a whole week in Pembrokeshire. Lovely pub, super outside areas, delicious food and drinks - what’s not to love? We would 100% return here again.More

Excellent meal, beautifully cooked, good selection of veg and cauliflower/broccoli cheese all served on hot plates in a lovely warm dining room. The quantity of food was more than enough and the service excellent (no long wait between courses), the price was more than competitive...with other local venues. The pub caters for children and is an ideal place for a family meal. Thoroughly recommended.More
