Coast contributor Lane Ashfeldt eats at Coast Saundersfoot in Pembrokeshire
WHET MY APPETITE Situated at Coppet Hall Beach, grand flavours match up to the majestic scenery, with a wide variety of creatively presented local seafood meals.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU? For brunch, take a full breakfast, or experiment with mushroom and truffled spinach on toast. For lunch or dinner, start with a shellfish soup or a goat’s cheese salad, then choose a fresh fish dish, expertly prepared by chef Will Holland — anything from seared scallops to John Dory.
HOW’S THE MOOD? Calm, relaxed and open. Between swims, you can grab a coffee at the informal beach-level café downstairs, but for impressive views, you’ll want to spend time at the upper-level terraced restaurant.
CAN I SEE THE SEA? It’s unmissable. The terrace, bar and restaurant command panoramic views across the sands of Coppet Hall, the bay and rocky headlands to the right, where a two-hour hike along the Wales Coast Path will bring you to Tenby Harbour.
WHAT’S THE DAMAGE? Nibbles cost from £4, starters £10. Carmarthen Bay line-caught sea bass fillet or pan-fried John Dory costs £21. Desserts such as vanilla crème brûlée cost £9. Children may eat half-size portions of any meal at half price. Extensive wine and champagne list available to suit a range of pockets.
OPENING TIMES Daily throughout the summer, 12-2.30pm and 6.30-9.30pm; all times are last orders. In winter, 12-2.30pm and 6.30-9pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
