THE 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.
