Haverfordwest: ‘Forbidden Florist’ opens in stylish riverside location

HIDDEN away in the heart of Haverfordwest, Forbidden Florist is an innovative and striking new dining destination that creates a magnetic point of difference through innovative design and elegant décor. The quintessential experience for anyone who seeks an escape from the ordinary and the mundane. Welcoming people with open and enquiring minds, life travelers looking for new taste experiences.

Forbidden Florist is a luxury artisan bar and eatery offering delicious (and bottomless!) weekend brunches as well as extraordinary cocktails and sophisticated dining centered around fantastically exotic and exquisite seasonal flavours using locally sourced and in-season ingredients that are chosen to intrigue and excite.

Forbidden Florist is the brainchild of family restaurateurs Leon & Esther Edwards and Mark and Angela Edwards. With the support of their wider family they have dedicated the past two years of their lives to building and developing a concept that is truly unique and are finally opening the doors to the lucky people of Haverfordwest and the surrounding area in Pembrokeshire.

The restaurant consists of over 6,000sq/ft of dining and drinking space with 200 covers inside and another 40 covers outside in the riverside seating area. The design of the site boasts a truly spectacular opening roof which uncovers the entire main restaurant area to create an incredible outdoor dining and drinking experience perfect for the height of summer. Alongside the opening roof trickery the main dining area has an opulently designed island bar and a spectacular dining experience under the Forbidden Florist canopy tree which sprawls across four feature birdcage booths. Another party piece that will prove to be an instant hit with diners and drinkers will be the feature booths which come fully equipped with their own built in giant ice buckets for the perfectly curated at table bottle service experience.

Forbidden Florist will be renowned for its innovative and extraordinary mixology as much as its seasonal dining offering. The cocktails on offer are created bespoke using house infusions and modern mixology techniques that create stunning theatre and added flair. High-energy, infused with visual impact, creativity and glamour. Oozing style and sophistication in every aspect.

The restaurant serves up an elegant yet indulgent weekend brunch menu expect to see delicious dishes in the form of the Signature Brunch Plates, Gin Cured Smoked Salmon and Scrambled eggs, Steak & Eggs, Huevos Rancheros, Churros French Toast and Buttermilk Pancake Stacks. The opulent brunch menu offers up a bottomless drinks option and as always at Forbidden Florist there is fantastic signature brunch cocktails including; Breakfast Martini, House Bloody Mary, Spiced Banana Espresso Martini and Raspberry Bellini.

For the main event Forbidden Florist serves up menus centred around fantastically exotic and exquisite flavours using locally sourced and in-season ingredients in the shape of the; Pork Belly with Apple Cider Gravy, Pan Seared Scallops, Corn Fed Chicken & Asparagus, Dry Aged Steaks & Hand Cut Chips, Karaage Chicken, Slow Cooked Beef Shin Ragu, House Smash Burgers and Buttermilk Chicken Sandwiches. Not to mention a selection of elevated bar snacks from the grazing menu for guests visiting for drinks at the island bar or the intimate lounge bar tucked away at the rear of the sprawling site.

Leon Edwards Co-Owner: “We are a place where office workers, local residents and visitors can enjoy great quality food and beverage served with world class hospitality!. We are beyond delighted to be opening in Haverfordwest, this is the town we are from and we can’t wait to throw open the doors. We are so excited Forbidden Florist is now open. Working on this project has been a fantastic experience. The people of Pembrokeshire are in for something completely different and truly unique.
