We have had to make the difficult decision to close for the winter earlier than usual…

This has been a challenging couple of years for hospitality.  Extreme staff shortages have impacted us, like many in the industry, and with the rise of COVID cases in the area we have had to close our doors.

Thank you for being understanding during these unprecedented times and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.


With roaring log fires in the winter and eating out on the alfresco terrace in the summer enjoying the spectacular sea view whilst watching a selection of fresh seafood en route from the Haven straight to your plate a few hours later – there is quite simply no better place to enjoy your locally caught seafood!

Creating a family friendly village local and restaurant for all who enjoy good conversation, food and drink. The deliberately informal atmosphere and fabulous friendly service only add to it, offering a memorable eating experience, that has won the Griffin many accolades.

The Griffin offers a vast range of simple fresh seafood dishes from mackerel to turbot, razor clams to scallops, crab to lobster or other treasures the sea throws at us.

“Fresh produce, simple cooking, fabulous flavour.”

In addition, the Griffin has a bar menu with an excellent choice of home-cooked locally sourced food to suit all tastes including vegetarian dishes and a children’s menu.

The wine menu offers a fabulous selection of quality wines and the Griffin Inn has also developed a reputation serving quality real welsh ales and award winning Gethins Pembrokeshire Cyder and the increasingly popular “Griffin G&T” (seaweed infused gin, served with Fever Tree tonic and garnished with samphire) is a must!

This small traditional inn is gaining nationwide recognition as one of the best and most exciting places to eat in Pembrokeshire
