Quench that thirst- We at Grub Kitchen are not afraid to admit to being a bit obsessive about our tea and coffee. We select our own barista blends, finest green teas and herbal infusions. From the perfect brew, rich espresso or even our unique chai-esque spiced coffee pot, we are sure to deliver your drink just the way you like it. Children will literally go mad for our homemade lemonade and cans or bottles of pop, all selected for their lack of nasty additives. Don’t worry… we serve grown-up pop too! We are lucky enough in Pembrokeshire, to have some fabulous micro-breweries. Caffle in Narberth, Bluestone Brewery in the Preseli hills, or Penlon Cottage Brewery are a just a few our favourites. Our wine list might be small, but it is mighty. If you need the help, our front of house team are more than capable to advise on matching the best wines to your meal. We also stock a range of fine spirits including Brecon gin and vodka, Penderyn whisky, Da Mhile Seaweed gin and Danzy Jones liqueur. Infusing our own gins and liquors will become an ongoing project depending on the availability of different fruits, seeds and foraged herbs throughout the seasons. We will evolve our drinks list to suit the seasons, the current menus, or sometimes just our mood.
