A cobbled seaside town and former Welsh stronghold during the Norman Conquest, Tenby in South Wales is an idyllic spot for a good meal and a warming Monmouth coffee. We pick the ten best tearooms and restaurants in town for some great local specialties.
Beach Break Tearooms
Tearoom tradition meets the clean edges and sophistication of modern life in this cosy space. With a rustic, seaside interior speckled with patches of exposed wall and charmingly distressed furniture, the intimate Beach Break Tearooms offers a wide variety of tea, the nutty flavour of Pembrokeshire coffee or a dram of something stronger to keep the wild Welsh elements at bay. Pop in for morning coffee alongside French toast with cinnamon syrup or sample their freshly baked baguettes with homemade coleslaw, crunchy seasonal salads or a piping hot panini.

The modern and stylish Top Joes prides itself on pizzas with dough made to their own unique recipe, using flour milled in the UK. With everything handmade from scratch, it is possible to adapt almost anything about your pizza to your specific tastes. Alongside beautiful pizzas, with toppings ranging from the standard margarita to roasted zucchini with ricotta and delicate pesto, Top Joes specialises in popular pasta dishes such as traditionally made pomodoro and carbonara.

In the middle of the Tudor Square, the Baytree is a charming retreat with exposed beams and deep wood interiors. A particular speciality is the luxurious champagne chicken, tender chicken strips tossed in the wok with fresh field mushrooms and finished with a rich champagne cream. Accompany your meal with a glass or bottle from the vast selection of French and Italian wines from the well-thought-out drinks menu.
