Lovespoon Workshop

I’m ashamed to say that it is only recently that I have discovered we have our very own Lovespoon Workshop in Pembrokeshire! It is a father and son enterprise, where ‘Dad’started making lovespoons in 1969-the very first one he made was as a wedding proposal (which was accepted!) and since then, one special lovespoon has been made each year. These… (more…)

Morning Visitors

We were surprised one morning this week to have a heard of cattle join us for breakfast! They had obviously heard that we had just won another award! The decided to have a close inspection of the rooms, giving some of the guests a bit of a shock when they opened their blinds and they also had a good taste… (more…)

Eating Out

I ate out this wekk at The Harbourmaster on Milford Marina. For a Thursday night, I was surprised how busy it was-good job we had booked a table! It happened to be ‘Curry Night’, and although you could still choose from their standard menu, and their specials also, I decided to try their Chicken Balti (which comes with a free… (more…)

Another Award!

I am delighted to report that, this week, we have received another prestigious award from Pembrokeshire County Council-the Pembrokeshire Produce Award for ‘Best Use of Pembrokeshire Produce in a Hospitality Outlet’..woop, woop!

Picton Castle – a quest for afternoon tea!

I am attempting to find the best ‘afternoon tea’ locally, following a request from a forthcoming guest-’ideally with nice gardens’….so Picton Castle came to mind! I am slightly ashamed to say I have never been here before, other than for a wedding, and at that point I really didn’t see anything other than the wedding venue! So, I collared my… (more…)

Want to try something new??

I spent a morning at The Big Blue Experience  (Tel: 07816 169359 )  this week. I met up with Ollie & Flora and they are based at Newgale (look for the Sands Cafe at the far end of the beach, north side-they’re just a few doors up). They offer a fantastic service of catering what you would like to do,… (more…)

Morning Walk along the Nature Trail

Ollie boy and I took a walk along the nature trail off Milford Marina. The trail takes you to Lower Priory where you can then pick up the cycle path, that will take you, traffic free, to Neyland and the BRunel Trail-which goes all the way to Haverfordwest- it’s a great cycle route and goes through some fab woodlands and… (more…)

Eating Out this week

Well, this week I was host to two ‘old’ colleagues of mine from my banking career-Mike & Peter, who were walking a piece of the coast path. I took them to Buccibar Indian, a new enterprise on Milford Marina. I can highly recommend this- 5 star surroundings, not your usual Indian, pleasant staff and no rush to get you out… (more…)
