Ship Inn Trefin
Set in the beautiful Pembrokeshire National Park the Ship Inn Trefin is situated 200 yards off the Pembrokeshire coast path. A beautiful unspoilt piece of history. An old stone country pub that has stood the test of time for over 200 years. Meriel Murphy is the landlady, she has been running the ship inn for over 16 years; she, her family and staff extend a warm welcome to everyone, families, couples, coastal ramblers, cyclists, large groups and organized special occasions. At least half of our staff are bilingual and can speak to you in welsh if you prefer.
The Ship Inn is definably worth a visit, an “oldie worldie” welcoming place to relax, a place that people have enjoyed being at since 1797!
During the summer season we have the very best jazz music in Britain for the bank holiday in august as part of Aber Jazz festival. We also have other live music acts of top quality; Peter Bruntnell has been kind enough to play for us twice, the beautiful Cerys Matthews has performed as a charity gig. Brian Mirza the very talented country singer and many more have given us many enjoyable evenings.
Our large restaurant also makes a fantastic party room, we hire the room for free to anyone that would like to host a special celebration with us. We are pleased to cater for wedding receptions, birthday parties, christenings, retirement parties, and community meetings.
We pride ourselves in using local produce, all our meat comes from Dewi James ai Gwmni, a butcher that has all his own meat from the farm 25 miles away . Mouthwatering steaks, gammons, ham, lamb, topsides of beef, fresh chickens and pork. We only using Preseli gold award winning sausages. Our cheeses all come from Pant Mawr where they are made on the farm 15 miles from us.
Fresh Sea Food
A huge attraction to the Ship Inn is the fresh local seafood. The ship supports the local fishermen by buying all their fresh fish within a 8 mile radius, fresh crab comes from the harbour village of Solva. Fresh pollock, mackerel and lobster come from one mile away at Abercastle.
Our Sunday lunch is all home cooked, using everything from Pembrokeshire where possible. At the moment we are doing bookings only for Sunday Lunch. During very quiet times, out of season we will not be serving the roast. We will always be doing food on a Sunday and our extensive menu has many options that have a gravy meal feel.
We have been awarded the top mark a Grade Five by the food standards agency for our food hygiene.
As well as our real ale we sell a wide selection of lagers, beer, spirits and ciders, (including some very nice Welsh Gwynt y Ddraig Cider in bottles). We sell a huge selection of juices and soft drinks.
