Oriel y Parc Café

18 Mar

Last Saturday we played catch up with some friends, meeting in Pembrokeshire at the Oriel y Parc Café which is situated within the Visitor Centre in St David’s.

Ian and I have called in here quite a few times and I’m pleased to say it’s always been a pleasure. The staff are so pleasant, friendly and smiley and the quality of the coffee is superb. So that’s my two vital boxes ticked!!!!

We didn’t have time to stay for lunch, but the food we saw being brought out looked very good indeed, so sure we’ll be back. For more details visit:

Whilst in St David’s we took the opportunity to call in and see Pauline and Angela who own and run Oriel-y-Felin Art Gallery which is in the centre of St David’s. I think it must be about four years since these two lovely ladies bought this place and the results are amazing. They’ve done a brilliant job re-vamping and re-vitalising this space, turning it into a vibrant gallery that has many original paintings, including from artist Pauline Beynon herself. There’s something for everyone in this gallery whether you are a serious collectors, a visitor or a local with a love of art for unique and affordable items. I doubt you’ll resist the temptations! Also available is the Collectorplan Scheme which is a great help if you’ve set your heart on something.

What I’ve always loved about this gallery is the variety of ceramics, glass and bronzes from local and invited artists. It always amazes me how many talented, artistic people there are. But if you have the nightmare task of having to buy a gift for someone who has everything, then call in a see Pauline and Angela, because I’m sure they’ll be able to solve your sticky situation or simply visit:

    great to see St David’s highlighted
    both of these places are well worth a visit
    I’m not an art fan as such but the gift ideas are so spot on as Kath says for those difficult people you have to buy a pressie for.
    Visitor Centre is even better now with this super café, they have got it so right.
    Do come to St David’s
