There were an awful lot of folk leaving Pembroke Dock on Friday night. Not many pashminas and Prosecco ; most of them had bottles of WKD. They were headed for Tenby’s pubs, of which more very soon.
Oddly, few folk seemed to be making the trip in reverse.
And that despite the draw of a GBG pub on the station.
Dave of Isle of Man fame missed this one on his visit, but I can save him a return journey.
In a nutshell, it’s no York Tap. More like the Sowerby Bridge Refreshment Rooms on a budget.
I’ve seen pubbier church halls. Small basket of snacks, three folk at a table, 2 on Carling and 1 on red wine.
And two of those real ales the CAMRAs like.
Service comes with a smile, and I can’t fault the effort to give folk a last beer before the slow train back to Manorbier.
But it takes a bit more than a sweet, syrupy Piston Broke (NBSS 2) to drag people away fron £2 pints of Carling at the Club.
The local radio, sadly not Welsh language, failed to lift the spirits, or my NBSS score.
Perhaps the arrival of local legends Kangaroo Air Force Ventilator (big hit : Pants disgo fyncci) proved a bigger draw.
