Welcome to The Tiddly- Located in the heart of Pembrokeshire

Published

on

the tiddlyTHE Tiddly (Travellers Rest) is a quaint country pub located on a well travelled road connecting the surrounding major townships.

Nearby to several villages and being just three miles away from the centre of Haverfordwest, the well-known pub has a large amount of traffic passing on a daily basis, allowing for the potential to attract a great number of people.

Seating 40, The Tiddly serves moderately priced, freshly homemade food. Opening at 11am, both lunch and dinner are served daily. During the week, food that can be prepared and enjoyed in a short amount of time will be offered for lunch to cater to the working man and woman.

Afternoon tea is beautifully presented on a two or three tier stand to those wanting to spend their afternoon catching up with old friends. Local retirement homes will enjoy an afternoon out with custom-made menus for them to enjoy and live entertainment by the landlord and landlady.

The dinner menu features a modest amount of British classics accompanied by daily specials based on the time of year, demographics of the patrons and/or any ideas the chef has. Sunday lunches are a deliciously prepared carvery, with hot and cold buffet. Starters, mains and dessert are offered at a reasonable price.

Landlord and lady, Matthew and Angela Baker, have paid homage to The Tiddly’s country surrounding and historic background with large black and white photos of local landmarks, people and the local farming lifestyle.

The look inside is clean, simple, classic and a notch above the typical pub. It celebrates the beauty of Wales, its people and its countryside, with a modern twist.

Matthew Baker travelled around the world, working as a Cruise Director for both Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean. He has years of food and beverage, hospitality, customer service and entertainment experience.

Angela Baker graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance in 2008. She then worked for three years on the cruise ships where she met her Matt. She too has years of experience in the food industry, customer service and entertainment world. She is currently working as a certified keyboard teacher through the Yamaha School of Music in Haverfordwest at Musician’s World.

Matt and Angela have been performing as a husband and wife duo all around Pembrokeshire, Wales and the UK. Angela on sax and vocals, accompanied by Matt on harmonica and guitar, create a unique sound all their own and have attracted the attention of many.

With the intention of one day running their own establishment, the two started their own entertainment company called Baker’s Entertainment in February of 2013, building a respectable reputation for themselves around the county.

After playing in about 50 different pubs over the last year and a half, Matt and Angela feel it is the right time to use the knowledge they have gained over the years and start a pub of their own.

Matt and Angela would like to take this opportunity to thank all friends and family for their kind support. The Tiddly will offer everyone a very warm friendly welcome and hope they can keep the Tiddly’s name and reputation just as good as it once was.

What’s the plan now for Matt and Angie? Well, they definitely plan to keep things simple. What more do you need than great food, good beer, a cosy & warm welcome and a relaxing atmosphere?

Weekends will have live entertainment, not only by Matt and Angela, but with many of their contacts in the entertainment
industry, so make sure you keep checking their website for the latest news about the upcoming gigs you can look forward to at The Tiddly.

Former Chequers nightclub to reopen

Published

on

AN APPLICATION for a new premises licence for the former Chequers night club succeeded at a meeting of Pembrokeshire County Council’s Licensing sub-committee on Thursday (Aug 22).

The former nightclub closed its doors for the last time in 2003, when it ran as a private members’ club, having had an application for a full on-licence rejected.

After failing in an attempt to close the club on that occasion, Pembrokeshire County Council became the only local authority in Wales to classify mobile homes as permanent residences in an effort to shut down the club once and for all.

The new applicant, Mrs Carmen Clemas applied for a new premises licence in respect of the club, which will be renamed the Queen of Clubs.

The Committee heard objections to the licence from local residents and heard representations from both the Police and Fire Service which pointed out that the building would need significant remedial works to it before it could re-open.

While Penally Community Council objected on the basis of events and problems at the premises almost twenty years ago, neither the Police nor Fire Service had an objection to the Club’s re-opening in principle.

Both emergency services emphasised that, even though they had no objections, they had concerns that had to be addressed.

Dyfed-Powys Police licensing officer Nigel Lewis highlighted road safety as a significant issue as it was “quite a nasty stretch of road.”

He said: “A solution will have to be found if the premise licence is to be granted, it’s way too dangerous to let a patron leave your place and and enter into that section,” he added.

The Committee granted the application, refusing permission for licensable activities at the Club on Sundays, apart from Sundays before Bank Holidays, and imposing strict noise control measures.

St Davids RNLI to feature in new series of a popular TV documentary

Published

on

THE volunteer lifeboat crew of St Davids RNLI will be taking to the small screen next week as they will feature twice in the first episode of the BBC TV series Saving Lives at Sea.

Now in its fourth season the documentary series, which showcases the lifesaving work of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), will be aired on BBC Two on Tuesdays at 8 pm, as well as being available on the BBC iPlayer following the broadcast. The new 10-part series features real rescues carried out by the charity’s volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards around the UK and Ireland – including St Davids RNLI.

Each programme gives a unique insight into the lives and work of the charity’s lifesavers who are needed more than ever before, rescuing thousands of people and saving hundreds of lives around our coastline and on inland waterways every year. The new series features more dramatic real-life rescue footage, accompanied by emotive testimonials from the volunteer crews, lifeguards and the people they rescue and their families.

This forthcoming episode, on 27 August, sees St Davids RNLI launch to a crashed plane in one shout, and tow a yacht stranded in a shipping lane in another. These shouts are shown alongside rescue stories from their colleagues at other stations and beaches around our coasts.

Judd Kohler, Station Mechanic at St Davids Lifeboat Station, said: “The first episode of Saving Lives at Sea shows two very different shouts that St Davids RNLI responded to. The programme is a great chance for RNLI supporters to catch a glimpse of the work that their kind donations go towards. We want to say a huge thank you to supporters of the RNLI, who help us to save lives at sea.”

Filming took place over the past year, with lifeboat crews and lifeguards carrying special cameras and welcoming film-makers into their day-to-day life. Rescues from the RNLI’s archives are also revisited, and we get a glimpse into the everyday lives of the thousands of men and women who give up their time to save lives.

Last year alone, RNLI lifeboat crews around the UK and Ireland rescued 9,412 people, saving 211 lives, while the charity’s lifeguards aided 32,207 people and saved 118 lives on some of the UK’s busiest beaches.

Saving Lives at Sea begins on Tuesday 27 August at 8 pm on BBC Two, and will continue throughout August, September and October.
