After walking for some time we were very grateful to stumble upon this place. Luckily it was still open, and serving food. The mussels were delicious and reasonably priced. Dessert also good and a good selection of drinks. Staff friendly and helpful.

Amazing variety of food. Think it was the best sea bass I have ever eaten! The staff are great and really friendly. Superb location and lovely, cosy interior. Can not wait to visit again!

The pub looks lovely from the outside and the lady serving us behind the bar counter was lovely and probably the best thing about the place as she was warm, welcoming and very polite but the food really wasn't very good. I had the fishermans pie and compared to the other fishermans pie's i had during our holiday,(3 in total... More

Just looking for a drink, we decided to stop in the cafe with a lovely beach view over to Fishguard, decided to eat too and so glad we did. piping hot mushrooms in garlic and butter sauce. And cod goujons and... More

The Old Sailors has a fabulous location but also great food served in a really friendly atmosphere. We visited on New Years Day and were lucky to get the last table in the bar as most were booked and I can see why. We intended to just have a drink but were soon tempted by delicious vegetable soup and homemade... More

Been going to this place since I was a small child. On my last few visits, it just gets better & better! The owner is great, friendly & excels at desserts. Great to see the place buzzing again. Read a previous review comparing to the Sloop in Porthgain which was rather negative. The food here is way superior & not... More

I've been visiting this (part time) pub for many years - virtually every year when it has been open on and off now for four decades! The area needs a really good seafarers fishing themed pub serving good quality honest pub food at a fair price and I wish someone would take hold of The Old Sailors and provide this!... More

Good meal in pleasant surroundings.Down side was the price of food on menu was not what you pay.A 20% vat is added at end.This makes the price of a ribeye steak £19 95 on menu £24 00.It added £30 to our bill for 4.There was nothing on specials board or menu to inform you of this.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to leave a review, i think there have been some crossed wires regarding your bill, our till system is an american based system and it splits the final bill showing what amount was paid in vat. The prices on our menu are inclusive of vat and so shows the full and final price... More

Having visited the old sailors on numerous occasions over the years and thoroughly enjoyed a wide variety of fresh seafood dishes, we were somewhat disappointed when we took friends for a meal during the summer. The menu was somewhat limited and no longer the specialism in fresh seafood. The fish and chips used to be the best I've had, but... More
