Following on from yesterday’s post about places from my holiday, today is going to be devoted to food. If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll how much I love food. One thing that I was surprised by was the number of places that used local produce as much as possible. My OH & I have an agreement that we visit independent places & we weren’t let down in Pembrokeshire.
In my places post I mentioned a lovely tearoom in Lawrenny called Quayside. I am forever indebted to my sister for referring me here. It is an amazing little place with a fantastic atmosphere right on the water. We had a delicious lunch before embarking on our walk. I had an awesome jacket potato with cheese, homemade coleslaw & a delicious salad. I was pleased to discover salad dressing on the table, ready for me to use!
My OH had a crab sandwich & loved it. After our lengthy walk we returned for the cake! I’d seen two that I really wanted to try so we had half each. The banoffee pie was quite possibly the best I’ve ever eaten (& I’ve eaten a lot!). The chocolate torte came with cream, which was needed as it was quite rich. I don’t think I would’ve been able to finish it if I’d had the whole slice but half was just enough!
One day we visited Melin Tregwynt, a woolen mill that I’ve bought from before. When my OH told me that you could visit the mill & that they had a cafe, he knew that we’d have to go there. After a few wrong turns we finally found it. The mill is really old & it’s great to see the fabric being made. I spent most of the time in the shop & you’ll have to come back tomorrow to find out what I bought!
The cafe & the menu was quite small and the veggie options were limited. I opted for the cheese ploughmans & wasn’t disappointed. The plate came full of food, which is always a good thing! It was delicious. My OH ordered cawl. For those of you who don’t know what this is, it’s a Welsh dish that is a cross between soup, casserole and broth. He really liked it as it contained some lovely Welsh beef & local veg. Perfect for those windy grey days that we had! x
