So as I seem to always be blogging about vegan food on the beach in Pembrokeshire, from chips on the beach, pizza on the beach to burgers on the beach, for a change I’ve recently had a vegan pasty on the beach (I know, my life is that exciting-haha!). It was very lovely too! Read on for some snapshots about our day and to find out where you can find vegan pasties in Saundersfoot:
As it was a school day, it was quieter than during the holidays but we still parked at Coppet Hall Beach (Sat Nav postcode: SA69 9AJ) as we enjoy the walk through the tunnels and across the beach. It’s not far anyway. Parking at Coppet Hall costs from £1.50 for an hour to £5 daily. You can pay by cash or card.
Saundersfoot Vintage Antiques and Interiors
From Coppet Hall, we walked through the tunnels and through Saundersfoot. We were headed to the new home for Shrinking Violets, which we used to love visiting while it was in Broad Haven. It’s new home is within Saundersfoot Vintage Antiques and Interiors, in The Old School House, along The Ridgeway, Saundersfoot. Mum loves vintage earthenware pots and had spotted one on her page so we went to pick one up and have a look around.
It’s lovely to have time to look around the local vintage and antique shops too. I’d love to have lots of spare room to buy lots of things. The furniture is always much better quality than new flat pack MDF furniture. I really love the pretty writing bureau above. Outside there are lots of lovely pieces for the garden. Not so antique but I took a picture of the daisy “tin bath” as that would have been great for ice and drinks at Ceri’s hen do! We will definitely be back again soon.
As we walked back into Saundersfoot to get lunch we spotted various tributes to Her Majesty The Queen. I’m still finding it hard to believe that the Queen has died, even with the non stop TV and News coverage. We will be watching the funeral tomorrow at Mums.
Conkers in Saundersfoot
At this time of year we always look out for conkers and we spotted lots on this horse chestnut tree. They’re not quite ready to collect yet- soon we’ll be seeing them fall to the ground.
Eat Out Vegan in Saundersfoot
Very often in Saundersfoot, we have chips on the beach. On our way to the antiques shop we smelt an appealing scent of delicious pasties. We checked in the window of the Pembrokeshire Pasty and Pie Co and when we saw they had vegan options we knew we had to come back here for our lunch. I mean if you were feeling very hungry, you could always have pie and chips in Saundersfoot! The vegan options available were The Vegan Hog, Indian Summer Vegan Pasty and Vegan Carrot Cake. I wouldn’t usually have cake but as there was a vegan option, I had to take advantage of it (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!). Feeling optimisitic by these vegan options I asked if they did dairy free milk. Sadly and quite surprisingly I thought, they didn’t but I ordered a black coffee anyway as the coffee smelled so good.
Vegan Pasty on the Beach
It was a lovely sunny, September day so we decided to eat on the beach. As we enjoyed our pasties on the beach there were many people around us sunbathing and enjoying the warm late summer. My vegan pasty, named Indian Summer was quite apt!
The pasty was delicious- the pastry was perfect, and the coffee tasted good. The Indian Summer Pasty is Vegan Bombay Potato in a Shortcrust Shell. It costs £3.95.
After our visit, I saw on their Instagram that our new King (that still feels strange to say!) has visited and enjoyed a pie or pasty at Pembrokeshire Pasty and Pie Co. He visited their original shop in Tenby a couple of years ago. It’s good to know we were eating pasties fit for a King! Haha!
King Charles III declares these pasties “Delicious!” and I shall not disagree!
Vegan Carrot Cake
As I mentioned above, I was delighted to see they sold vegan carrot cake too. It was delicious- moist, fruity, full of crunchy walnuts and topped with a sweet icing.
Mum enjoyed her pasty too. She also had cake, which is very out of character for her, so it must have looked particularly tempting! I did take a selfie of the two of us together but when I looked back on my photos, I either hadn’t taken the photo or it hadn’t saved but I was there- honest! 😉
Saundersfoot looked so pictureesque on this beautiful sunny day. We walked back across the beach to Coppet Hall, back to the carpark. We love to walk on to Wiseman’s Bridge too when we have more time. It’s a lovely day out!
Have you visited Saundersfoot? Have you tried a Pembrokeshire Pie or pasty before?
