Traditional harbour side pub specialising in seafood and homecooked classics with one of the best sea wall ‘bars’ in Wales. Great fun

Read guest comments

Dale's last, very old pub – there were once 15 – sits defiantly close to the water and has seen out some stormy seas. The stone sea wall in front is known as 'the longest bar in Pembrokeshire' and what better place to be on a warm day with a pint of Tenby Harbwr's North Star or Tomos Watkin's Cwrw Haf, both from local breweries, as you watch the day's catch being unloaded from responsible day boats. Fresh fish, lobster and shellfish are hugely popular here and make the short distance from beach to Simon and Sian's home-cooked menus. Inside are red quarry tiles, painted stone, wood panelling and an open fire in the cosy, traditional bar. An additional restaurant and roof terrace have been added to make the most of the great views across the bay and up the Haven, kids love to play on the pontoon, and the coastal walks are superb.

  • Dale Peninsula Circular Walk - You can walk around the 6 miles or so of the coastal path in a few hours, or over the course of a day at a more leisurely pace. And it’s a circular walk, so you can start at the Griffin and finish at the Griffin
  • We have West Wales Water sports next door to the Griffin. It's a fully accredited RYA training centre with highly qualified and experienced instructors. There are a range of courses on offer to cater for all ages and abilities. Kayak hire also available.
  • Landing trips and gentle cruises on board the traditional 'Dale Princess'. Land on Skomer Island - spend the day exploring the beautiful island nature reserve and see the thousands of Puffins, Guillemots, and Razorbills, along with a host of other birds
  • Exhilarating high-speed wildlife adventures on board our 'Dale Sea Safaris' RIB. Explore the cliffs and coves of Skomer, Skokholm and Grassholm. See the wildlife that surrounds the island, take in the spectacular scenery and cruise across open ocean.

Guest feedback
"We had a most excellent evening meal of farmhouse pâté, a wonderful cod main course in a delicious sauce followed by a good fruit crumble. We were a big party but the service was first class. We had the house wines which were more than adequate. Everybody agreed that the whole meal was a great success and a class act. We will be back and thank you Simon and Sian and your helpful staff. "
