Our Story

Found along the seafront in a hidden corner of Pembrokeshire, The Griffin pub in Dale specialises in fresh seafood and homecooked classics. It also boasts one of the best sea wall ‘bars’ in Wales and the pontoon opposite lends itself perfectly for those wishing to arrive by sea.

As you step foot into this long-standing/history steeped pub, you’ll feel embraced by the cosy atmosphere created by beams, wood panelling and traditional red quarry tiles. In the winter crackling open fires ensure you are gently warmed as you enjoy the easy-going atmosphere. Additionally, a modern glass fronted extension complete with its own standalone stove, allows you to experience the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast no matter what the weather. Both areas create the perfect setting to enjoy plates of fresh seafood, carefully selected beverages, watch live music or perhaps play a board game or two.

On a summer’s day, you can while away time outside watching the days catch being delivered whilst enjoying one of our many welsh ales including one which I brewed especially for The Griffin, as well as a variety of quality wines and local ciders. In warmer weather there is no better place to dine than on our rooftop terrace where you can soak up the seaside smells and sounds whilst looking out at the lovely estuary view.

Whether you’re looking for a traditional home-cooked dish, or in the mood to sample our contemporary twist on seafood. The owners, Simon also known as ‘Accidental Chef’ and Sian go the extra mile to provide a warm welcome and of course serve award winning food to every guest of The Griffin. Seasonality means there will always be something new to bring to the table and it is reflected in the daily specials. The huge array of locally sourced seafood delights including lobsters, crab, razor clams, scallops, whole sea bream and many more favourites ensure a fresh and interesting menu and the home cooked classics ensure every mood is catered for.
