Manorbier Castle Cafe

21 Apr

The Place

Wales, as I’ve said before, is beautiful, and we don’t always appreciate what’s on our doorstep.  I was struck by that thought after returning for what is now becoming the Hathway’s annual family annual visit to Pembrokeshire.

On this occasion we took a trip to visit Manorbier castle.


The cafe was perfectly placed to take advantage of the stunning surroundings having been established within the existing structure of the castle.


Inside the cafe was modern but tactful.  The staff was very helpful, if a little overbearing at times.


There was a glorious outside area which was highlighted by the fact this was a particularly nice day.


The accompanying large garden area for boys to play in only made the whole visit that bit more relaxed and enjoyable.

The Drink

It has been a while since I’ve had a hot chocolate. This particular cup was strong with a bitter taste, as I like. While it was nothing special it did provide a nice pick me up after hours of seaside walking.


The Cake

Even though we had been up and about for hours it was still a little early in the day for cake.  In addition to that while there was a selection of cakes available carrot cake sadly was not on the menu.

The Rest

Exploring the grounds was great for Gryff who loves that sort of thing.

Some of the views from the higher points were magnificent and really let you appreciate the magic of the Welsh Western coastline.

In additional there was a dress up room in the grounds for children which was a lovely touch. Here’s Gryff taking full advantage.

Best of all however was this random waxwork in the dungeon which terrified an unsuspecting Lauren.
