The market town of Narberth is situated in the heart of Pembrokeshire, south of the Landsker Line and is popular with both locals and tourists. The Landsker line is an imaginary line separating the English speaking south Pembrokeshire from the Welsh speaking north. This was created when the Normans gradually drove the native Welsh to the north and built a line of defensive strongholds to protect their lands, stretching from Amroth to Newgale.
The name Narberth comes from the pre-Norman name for the district “Arberth” and is mentioned in the Mabinogion (Welsh folk tales of the 14th Century).
There are an abundance of local attractions, plus plenty of pubs and “eateries” in and around Narberth. The Creative Cafe is where your children can design and paint ready made pottery while you have a meal. Oakwood is a nearby theme park if you fancy a bit of “thrill-seeking”.
If you are a wine lover, why not visit Cwm Deri Vineyard where you can stroll through the vineyards, taste the wine & liqueurs and also grab a bite to eat in the restaurant. Places to eat include The Grove, which is a Country House restaurant that serves traditional British dishes, Plas Hyfryd Country Hotel with a relaxing lounge bar and alfresco dining.
If you don’t want anything too fancy you can opt for a number of cafes in Narberth. These are Cafe Q (based in the Queens Hall), Liz’s coffee shop or The Creative Cafe. There are a variety of “takeaways” to suit all tastes – Dragon House (Chinese), Contented Sole (Fish and Chips), a Pizza and Kebab House and Megna (Indian).
If shopping is on the agenda, Narberth has a surprisingly large range of shops for a small town – Antique shops, art and crafts, boutiques, charity shops, clothes, gift shops. Those interested in history and culture should visit the Castle, the Museum or perhaps the old Wesleyan Chapel (built in 1905 & now the Library).
