Visit Pembrokeshire for Award-Winning Dining at our Country Hotel Restaurant!

“If you are looking for great food, reasonably priced in a restaurant which has a beautiful interior, go no further.”

Good food is one of the greatest pleasures in life. It’s at the heart of the important occasions we celebrate – birthdays, anniversaries, weddings – and something we often turn to when we want to give our nearest and dearest an extra special treat.

At Wolfscastle Country Hotel, we’re passionate about our food. Coming from generations of restaurant owners and wine merchants, you could say the love of food and drink runs through our veins! Whilst we take great pride in creating mouth-watering dishes from the finest Pembrokeshire produce, experience tells us that fantastic food is just one part of dining-out. A warm welcome, beautiful surroundings, a relaxed atmosphere and excellent customer service play an equal part in

ensuring our guests enjoy one of the best dining experiences to be had anywhere in Wales.

Allt yr Afon Wolfscastle

“Absolutely beautiful venue, ideal for any function. Fantastic food, fantastic staff and a fantastic atmosphere. Been here for numerous occasions and was never disappointed. Would highly recommend for any occasion…”

Awarded 2 AA Rosettes for culinary excellence our Allt yr Afon Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy delicious, fine-dining dishes carefully created by our talented chefs. Using the very best local produce and treating ingredients with the respect they deserve ensures that each dish showcases the fantastic flavours that exemplify the best in modern Welsh cuisine. A great setting for both formal occasions or more cosy, intimate dining, our Victorian-style dining room exudes elegance whilst retaining a relaxed ambience. As only one of three restaurants in Wales shortlisted for the Observer Monthly Food Awards in 2016, we’ve built an enviable reputation for top-quality food and friendly, professional service.

The Brasserie

 “It was excellent. The staff were welcoming. The menu choices superb. All in all, a delicious meal. We will definitely call in again when we are passing and have no hesitation in recommending you do too.”

Not satisfied with just the one fabulous eatery, we decided to have two! As well as our renowned restaurant, we also have a 2 AA Rosette modern Brasserie offering a more informal dining experience. Enjoy a spot of dinner or lunch on weekdays or go traditional at the weekend with a scrumptious Sunday roast. The Brasserie is also a lovely setting in which to indulge in one of our delicious afternoon teas, a really special treat (especially if you add a little Prosecco)! If food isn’t on your mind, you can just sit back and relax with a drink – cwtch on a sofa with a steaming cup of freshly-ground coffee or lounge at the bar and peruse our classic cocktail menu, whatever takes your fancy.

Enjoy the Best of our Wonderful Wine Cellar

“Very good atmosphere, friendly staff. Excellent wine.”

 Of course, a great meal needs an equally wonderful accompaniment and our well-stocked wine cellar is more than up to the challenge. Our family have been wine shippers and merchants for over 200 years, so we know a thing or two about finding the best quality wines to suit a variety of palettes and to match our gourmet dishes. We take pride in selecting fine wines from around the world, so you’re sure to find something you’ll love on our extensive wine list.

Serious about food

For serious foodies, there’s the opportunity to join the Wolfscastle Country Hotel Dining Club. As a member, you can dine with us regularly, enjoying both menu favourites and our chef’s latest creations at a healthy discount (and it gives you a great excuse not to stay at home and do the cooking)!

If all that doesn’t convince you how passionately we feel about our food and drink, how many hotels can boast their very own cookbook? Our proprietor Andy Stirling has put his passion into print – part memoir, part cookbook, ‘My life and other recipes’ was published to mark 40 years of our luxury Pembrokeshire hotel.

Detailing Andy’s extensive experiences in the food and wine business and giving an insight into his culinary inspirations, the book also shares some of Andy’s tried and tested food favourites, like classic Boeuf Bourguignon, sticky chocolate brownies and the famous fudge that’s been served with our coffee for over 40 years!

Allt yr afon Wolfscastle is the home of Andy Stirling, author of My Life and Other Recipes an proprieotor of WOlfscastle Country Hotel, Pembrokeshire

Review from Travel with Bender

Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting travel bloggers Erin and Josh Bender and their two children during their time in Wales:

“Little did I know but we were about to visit one of the best restaurants we’ve dined at in the last 3 years. We’ve eaten at close to 1000 restaurants across 50+ countries in recent years and this one ranks in my favourite 5. So when I heap praise on this fine establishment, please understand it’s no small feat and certainly not something I do every day.”

Cookery Demonstration

DSC03957-300x225Recently, Head Chef Tom Simmons held a cookery demonstration and four course dinner for guests in our Garden Room.

Tom gave professional insights as he prepared dishes in front of the audience which were then enjoyed at dinner in the restaurant. The menu included:

Canapés ~ seared fillet, choux bun, horseradish cream, smoked haddock & salmon fishcake, dill tartare sauce  Read more

Lunch with the Jocelyn Trio

The quirky Jocelyn dudes were in full swing as I entered the room. Diners were tapping their toes, with one corpulent gent just about keeping the beat with his spoon.

I soon discovered  why this was called the banqueting suite – it really was a feast to remember. I went a bit retro to begin with but luckily this wasn’t one of those pink and gooey horror stories from days of yore. No, this was a delicate prawn cocktail with the added touch of rolled brown bread and smoked salmon.  Read more

“One of the best Sunday lunches ever”

Tim Davey, from the Bristol Evening Post, recently dropped by for lunch – this is what he wrote about us in the resulting Pembrokeshire travel feature…

“…we headed out again for Sunday lunch to the Wolfscastle Hotel in the village of the same name. Here we had what all four of us agreed was one of the best Sunday lunches ever. It was busy when we arrived and you soon found out why once our food, including scallops, began arriving. It was superb quality and astonishing value.”
