Porth Clais Kiosk

Visitors can enjoy a real flavour of the area at Porth Clais Kiosk in Pembrokeshire. The red-brick building is the former pump room of St David's gas works and can be found in our National Trust car park near the harbour.

A warm welcome

Following our search for a new tenant in 2018, the refreshment hub has been taken on by St David’s locals Ben and Caroline Elliott, who are excited about the opportunity right on their doorstep.

“We’re really passionate about this area and have often walked past imagining how we’d put our own stamp on things if the opportunity arose.

“We’re delighted to now be starting on this new adventure with the National Trust at Porth Clais Kiosk where we can showcase Pembrokeshire produce, provide a welcome pit stop for visitors and share information on things to see and do in the area,” the couple enthused.

What’s on the menu?

It’s a light bite menu designed for coastal convenience, with hot drinks, local ice cream, homemade cakes, soups, stews, toasted sandwiches and seasonal specials on offer.

“Our menu is focused on locally sourced ingredients and tasty dishes that can be easily enjoyed on-the-go,” they explain.

Opening times and how to get to the kiosk

The kiosk is open daily 10am to 4pm until the end of September.

You'll find the kiosk next to the National Trust car park at Porth Clais Harbour (SA62 6RR).

Working in partnership

Speaking about the new venture, Cath Orchard, our commercial manager for North Pembrokeshire, said: “We’re really excited to be working in partnership with Ben and Caroline at Porth Clais Kiosk.

“The kiosk is in an idyllic spot to provide refreshments and information to the thousands of visitors who come to this special place every year to enjoy the coast path, watersports and connect with nature.”
