St Davids is fast moving away from the Victorian tea room and into contemporary, fun and relaxed dining experiences. And no more so than at Grain – a pizzeria with a difference. Although it uses ancient Italian techniques to make its fantastic creations, Grain has a wholly Welsh facing ethos.
On the menu you’ll find pizzas named ‘Y Ddraig Goch’ (Welsh Dragon), ‘Land of my Fathers’ and ‘Strumble Head’. Grain uses toppings such as smoked mackerel, Pant y Sgawn goats cheese and Trealy farm Nduja to make an authentic Italian experience feel truly Welsh. And of course, you can wash down all these glorious carb-hits with local ciders and beers.
This plucky little welsh pizzeria has caused a real stir in the local area and boasts an almost faultless 5 stars out of 5 stars on any reviewing platform as well as a very flattering write up in The Times. Their warm and welcoming demeanour and a very unpretentious style means the eating experience is always relaxed and fun-loving. However, with some of the seating outside, do make sure you wrap up warm if it’s a chilly night. But of course the el fresco experience does come with its benefits. Dogs are encouraged to join in the fun. Just keep an eye on them as the smells might just cause them to take a wholesome bite when no one is looking.
If you can’t get to Grain in St Davids then fear not. For another restaurant has also opened in Carmarthen, Pembrokeshire, about a 40 minute drive from St Davids.
And Grain is only about a 5 minute walk from Yewdale Cottage, a perfect place to spend a scorching summer holiday or a cozy winter break in West Wales.
And you kneed not worry about Grain. If they keep doing their thing, they’ll be rolling in dough.
