With the suns beaming rays reflecting across the shallow waters of the estuary, enjoy a romantic meal for two in the spectacular restaurant of “The Jolly Sailor”.

The ancient pictures depict the special moments of the villages past, some of which illustrate the erection of the Cleddau Bridge and the HMS Warrior. On a beautiful summers evening, soak up the sunshine and sit outside next to the River and admire the picturesque views, and the soothing sounds of the crystal blue water.
