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.

Herald publisher ceases operations

Published

on

HERALD NEWS UK LTD, the company which prints The Pembrokeshire Herald, The Carmarthenshire Herald and The Llanelli Herald has ceased operations.

Editor of Pembrokeshire Herald, Thomas Sinclair said: “After finalising today’s paper to go to print yesterday, a meeting was held last night. It was confirmed that the expected further investor funding would not be made available for the company.

“This meant that operations need be halted as the businesses was not able to pay its ongoing costs.

“At 10am today the 24 members of staff working at the newspaper have today been given notice of redundancy.

“We are absolutely devastated that after nearly 7 years and hundreds of editions of the paper we can no longer continue.”

“I would like to think that over those years, some of the stories we have written have made a difference to Pembrokeshire and beyond.”

Director of Herald News UK Limited, John Hammond said: “The company accountant could be appointing administrators as soon as next week.”

“The Owners of The Pembrokeshire Herald came to the conclusion last night during a finance meeting that the venture is no longer financially viable.

“Whilst every conceivable effort has been made to improve the financial situation of the business, we have to face the fact that there is no way that we can now continue in a solvent position.

“Whilst there has been a slow decline in readership of local newspapers, our costs for wages, printing and transport have substantially increased.”

“We would like to thank all of our loyal readers and staff.”

Crocodiles to appear at Folly Farm in early 2020

Published

on

A PAIR of crocodiles is set to join the Folly Farm family and be shown off in a new enclosure. The West African Dwarf crocodiles will take their place in the Tropical Trails exhibit next February.

The fascinating reptiles are classified as vulnerable due to being hunted for their meat and having their habitats destroyed. The crocs are labelled as ‘dwarf’ in name only, as both are over five foot long at 29 years old. Folly Farm is re-homing them from Drayton Manor Park, their home for several years, as it is currently renovating its crocodile enclosures.

The female of the duo was caught in the wild as part of the illegal pet trade and seized by customs whilst her male companion was captive-bred at Barcelona Zoo. The two crocs will join sloths, bats and snakes in the Tropical Trails enclosure.

Folly Farm’s zoo curator, Tim Morphew, said: “Tropical Trails seeks to highlight the issues of habitat destruction and the illegal pet trade, so these new additions will be a flagship species for the conservation messages we’re trying to deliver. We’re designing the enclosure to replicate the swampy, forest habitats in Africa with plenty of glass viewing windows so our visitors will get a good view of these powerful creatures.”
