The Cafe at No 4 Queen Street, Carmarthen

Yesterday one of the J's took the bus with a friend to Carmarthen to check out The Cafe at No 4 Queen Street, Carmarthen. Only opened a couple of weeks ago by Andrew (brother of Alex from )

This J had visited the cafe with the previous owners quite a few times and had enjoyed the food.
J ordered a warm butternut and feta cheese salad and friend ordered goats cheese salad. Very tasty indeed!

As we knew Andrew is very good at his deserts we ordered the lemon posset with homemade shortbread......heavenly!
Andrew currently has no web site but is soon to have a facebook page. We hope he is successful at No 4.

Nant y Coy Mill Cafe Treffgarne Haverfordwest

One day last week one of the J's visited Nant y Coy Mill Cafe with her mother for lunch.
The waitress greeted us the second we walked through the door and through the whole time we were there was chatty and efficient the whole time. Her banter with customers added to the experience.

The main course we chose from the ever changing specials board, always with seasonal additions was the herb crusted hake on a bed of mash and broad beans with a salsa verde.....extremely tasty!
Feeling naughty and decided to sin and both chose the homemade hazulnut meringue with whipped cream and raspberry coulis.....
The overall experience left a very satisfactory well fed memory, one which will be repeated one day very soon!

The Moorings Restaurant @ Dale, Pembrokeshire

On a sunny day a couple of weeks ago one of the J's took her folks for lunch to The Moorings restaurant in Dale (above Dale Yacht club)
What a treat! The view was stunning looking out to sea and the food was a really nice surprise.

On arrival the menu seemed a bit limited with two or three specials on the board and a small selection on the menu. This was actually one of the best things about it as what we got was really fresh, really real, good quality food. Our three mains were, one sea bass and two fish pies, freshly prepared and using local produce. Feeling a little full when it came to deserts we ordered two chocolate brownies, not expecting much. Well another surprise and a delight! Light, soft, sticky homemade brownie...a jug of warm chocolate sauce to pour over and a scoop of homemade chocolate ice cream!!

There is also a small deli with a variety of food stuffs on sale including homemade bread.
The owners of The Moorings have only been in residence since March 2012. As the restaurant is upstairs it may be a while until the 4 J's can visit owing to the fact that one of the J's has had a fall and subsequently a hip replacement! Rest assured, at the soonest opportunity the 4 J's will be there.
