“Finally” say Dave and Joan, “a post we’re in“.
Not quite. This is the setup.
Loads of this,
and pubs to follow.
Tenby was a key strategic objective in what I’ll indelicately call The Welsh Clearances.
Two GBG pubs, one of them allegedly a cracker, in a town so posh that even Americans will stay there (for the price of a two bed semi in Port Talbot).
I’d been before, once, in 1995. But it must have been a flying trip as I’d surely have remembered this view.
These are actual photos, folks. It is that beautiful.
There’s beaches this sandy, for sure, but the architecture really draws out the views.
It’s a bit bigger than I’d expected, a population supplemented by the entirety of Pembroke Dock, armed with Prosecco. It was as if Cardiff’s fun pubs had been decanted to Southwold.
They’ve even got their own newspaper which was leading on the Southworths visit as I arrived.
So without further ado, I set off to the Crown & Anchor to welcome them.
