We eat inside recently. First and only time I have visited a restaurant since lockdown as I am on the shield list. I felt very comfortable and protected. Temperature was taken at the door, all staff wore masks and plenty of room between tables. Plus the food was excellent. Sharon Barber
Been to your restaurant last week. We was told by member of staff that we can not eat outside??? But I have seen people eating outside at the time. Can you explain your rules as that didn't make any sense to me...
Gutted had to postpone our booking for Saturday because we’re in a local lockdown. 😢Never mind, something to look forward to (hopefully soon) 🙏
‘Had great meals here previously, under new chef Fred Clapperton it was absolutely sensationally delicious. The wine pairings were slightly quirky but spot on. Service was perfect and setting sublime.’
Lovely feedback and photos from one of our recent guests. #Fredsmenu ... See MoreSee Less
Originally from a small town near Doncaster, Fred's first taste of a professional kitchen was pot washing in local pubs for a bit of pocket money. From there he progressed to waiting on, then helping in the kitchen. Realising that working in a kitchen could offer a really creative career, he enrolled at Catering College.
After working in numerous credible establishments in his early years, Fred joined Drakes in 2012 as Demi Chef de Partie where he rose through the ranks to Sous Chef. In 2016 he was promoted to Head Chef when owner Serina Drake took full control of the business and rebranded the restaurant at The Clock House. This is where Fred started developing his own unique cooking style and after just one year from taking charge he was awarded his first Michelin Star.
We are both delighted and very proud to have Fred Clapperton as our Head Chef here at Coast.
'I'm Fred and I'm the new Head Chef here at Coast, I was due to start at the end of March but unfortunately lock down happened just before I was able to get in. However this has given me the chance to get to know the area and more recently explore Pembrokeshire properly.
It's a beautiful place and I can really see how it will influence my food. Having access to some amazing wild offerings along the hedgerow, locally caught seafood from the coastline as well as the amazing local cheeses is really exciting for me.
Coast as you know is already an amazing space and incredible location, but whilst we have been closed we have been working with our designers on a small but significant makeover. We've just completed the first stage and will be adding further layers over the months ahead.
I'm also really excited to be opening the doors for the first time with a new look restaurant and a new team this Wednesday on 5th August. The support we have received so far has been amazing, and we cannot wait to welcome you back to Coast.' - Head Chef Fred Clapperton
We would like to assure our guests that in light of Covid-19, all necessary measures have been taken to guarantee a safe dining experience.
