For Valentine’s day I was treated to a gorgeous meal at the Mulberry, Saundersfoot by my lovely boyfriend, Miguel.
We have been going to the Mulberry for a nearly 3 years now, celebrating birthdays and what not, it’s a relaxed yet sophisticated setting in the middle of Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, Wales.
The interior is gorgeous, exposed brick and woodwork, the bar area has been recently redecorated to a high standard, ideal if you want to meet people before going to your table. For me it isn’t just about the food here, it’s the overall experience, fine dining with a lovely ambiance. One thing I hate about restaurants is the way they pack you in like sardines, which you don’t get here, you have your own intimate space, just for you! Aww… look at those cute little mason jar salt and peppers!
The menu is varied, many fish, meat and vegetarian dishes are available, the quality of the food is outstanding! (To the fish eaters, sadly I’m not a fish fan to review that for you, but it always looks lovely!) They also have daily specials and a 3 course set menu at £19.95 which is amazing value, as most of the main course dishes average at £18.95. Everything is cooked on the premises, and locally sourced. Both the owners have always been there whenever I have, Helen is front of house and Arno running the kitchen, the staff are always amazing, very helpful, friendly and professional.
I am a creature of habit and normally go for the same thing, mostly because I know it’s just too good to miss!
To start: King Prawn skewers in garlic butter £8.95 – Absolutely amazing! If you can resist the temptation to eat your bread straight away, it’s so good dipped in the left over garlic butter.
For Mains: 10oz Sirloin £19.95 – Rare, with sautéed potatoes, blue cheese sauce and veg (which all comes out separately and there are different choices) The steak is beautiful, deliciously tender, it is all beautiful to be honest! Miguel had Duck breast with a ginger and port sauce however by the time I went to get some pics he had already inhaled half of it (so, sorry about that).
Dessert: We shared the assiette of chocolate £6.25 – This was the first time we have tried this dessert, and it was great, perfect for sharing and trying a few different things. There is a white chocolate and raspberry parfait, chocolate brownie and chocolate mousse. A chocolate lovers dream, it was absolutely amazing!
No trip to the Mulberry would be right without their homemade ice cream! In particular the lemon curd ice cream, you are a fool not to try it! It’s the best ice cream I have ever had, it’s worth going to the Mulberry purely for the ice cream, trust me!
We have also been for Sunday Lunch, which again is beautiful! Miguel doesn’t eat veg but his plate is always full when going here, the beef is cooked to your preference, for any picky beef eaters. So yeah, definitely recommend!
If you are ever in this neck of the woods it’s definitely a restaurant to visit, ideal for all family members, the amazing staff always ensure you have an enjoyable experience and the food is top notch!
