Hakin and Milford Haven Information
Dining OutResidents of Great Britain (including Pembrokeshire) often eat their evening meal earlier than in some other countries. This means that many restaurants will close earlier than in some other countries. Sunday is usually a busy day for the catering trade and advanced booking for sunday meals and popular venues may be advisable. It is not unusual for restaurants to be very quiet (or closed) on a monday. Whilst most pubs concentrate on alcohol sales, (children are prohibited from entering normal bars,) others provide a familly restaurant service. It is normal for a "dining" pub to have appropriate advertising signage outside their premises.
The British often prefer meat and eggs to be "well cooked." When ording meat cooked to a specific level (e.g rare, medium or well done,) it is possible that an "English" interpretation could result in the meat being cooked for longer than expected. The majority of restaurants will have meat-free menu options (usually called "vegetarian") however vegan (meat, dairy and egg free) alternatives may be harder to source.
We also prefer our hot food to be "hot" and may complain if it is only warm. For this reason, some of your meals may be warmer than expected.
The local government visits and inspects every premises where food is routinely prepared. It does not matter whether you are a top restaurant, burger van or sausage maker - you must accept these "food safety" inspections. When the inspectors visit they examine every aspect of your food preparation to ensure your food is safe. (The inspection concentrates on food safety, hygiene and documention rather than subjective "tastiness" etc.)
All Welsh restautants (including Pembrokeshire) are required to display a special rating sticker indicating their hygiene score. The Score ranges from 0 (urgent improvement necessary) to 5 (very good.)
