A40, Junction Haverfordwest; 15 minutes
Vegetarian or vegan options
Although a slightly creative extension of our 15-minute diversion, if you’re heading West along the A40 towards Fishguard and/or the ferry to Ireland, it’s well worth taking a detour south for West Wales’ hippest food hub.
Of course, Pembrokeshire is no stranger to good food, with Narberth down the road known as something of a gastronomic hub, but Y Gegin (Welsh for kitchen) brings the foodie scene to Pembroke. “We wanted to create an attractive space where people of all ages would come together and explore tastes and dishes from around our county,” says co-founder Michelle Evans.
And that they have, adopting the town’s former market hall as new home for a growing collective of street food traders. Founding companies Paternoster Farm and Cŵlbox are permanent fixtures, serving their unique charcuterie and seafood respectively, and exciting new companies join them in the food hall to supply tasty dishes at brunch, lunch and dinner. Fantastic.
