'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.

Another beautiful dish we can expect to see from Head Chef Fred Clapperton once we are able to reopen.
Hibiscus, apple, blackberry
'This dish has had many incarnations and is a dish that has been with me since day one and so I simply have to bring it with me to Pembrokeshire.
I love playing with acidity and for me this dish has a perfect balance of acidity, sweetness, texture and of course a satisfying richness which we all want from dessert. In this version, set hibiscus creams are joined by a Granny Smith and Bramley apple stew, Coxes apple jellys, pickled blackberrys, lemon shortbread and a refreshing sorbet. The sorbet is made with all the surplus apple skins, helping to work towards a waste free environment in my kitchen, which is really important to me.'
