Why choose to holiday in Porthgain?
Porthgain is a tiny village with so much to offer. It’s home to two of Pembrokeshire’s most well known and much-loved eateries. The Sloop Inn is a pub bursting with character. Historic charts, lobster pots and maps adorn the walls inside, and the wooden decor is such that you could be inside a ship! There’s nothing novelty about this pub though, the food is great pub grub and the beer even better. Locals flock here as often as visitors, which is always a good sign! The beer garden is a sun trap, and looks out over the harbour and sea beyond.
The Shed Fish and Chip Bistro is the other gem of Porthgain. Serving up delicious seafood dishes using fish brought into the harbour that day by their own boat – you can’t get fresher than that! As well as their famous fish and chips, the menu is bursting with inventive dishes that will keep you coming back again and again.
Head out of Porthgain on the coast path in either direction and you’ll be on some of the most beautiful stretches of the Pembrokeshire coast path. Awe-inspiring views await, and you’ll be talking about those walks for a long time to come.
The shops, cafes, and restaurants of St Davids are just a 15-minute drive away and make for an enjoyable day trip to see St Davids Cathedral and explore the smallest city in Britain.
