    What a gem of a restaurant, the food was delicious and exciting with lots of foraged ingredients. We were contacted by phone the day before to check if we had allergies or didn’t like any food ingredients. It’s a set menu so you don’t know what you’re getting to eat till you’re presented with the menu on arrival. Lovely atmosphere, the staff were superb, chef came to talk to us at the beginning and end of our meal so we could ask questions if needed. Overall we highly recommend having a meal here

    The tasting menu was a wonderful experience well balanced and proportioned. Food was excellent with inventive combinations. Especially enjoyed the very fresh trout dish and the Welsh lamb with put lentils. Only criticism was the 2nd sweet dish Was too rich after the preceding excellent lemon posset- would have preferred a Welsh cheese course to finish. Jake the chef would give those on Masterchef a good run for their money.

    My husband and I enjoyed an amazing meal at The Really Wild Emporium last week. We had the six course tasting menu but mine was the vegan option. I was offered the choice of substituting some courses for a vegetarian option but decided not to and I loved every one. My husband was particularly pleased with the lamb course. The foraged food elements to each dish gave more unusual flavours, which we both really liked and two surprise extra courses were just as good as the other six. The staff were really friendly and helpful and not overly attentive and it was great to meet the head chef and have the opportunity to compliment him. To create such a variety of dishes to such a high standard must have taken a lot of planning and a tremendous amount of work.

    The set tasting menu was very well put together, lots of interesting local produce. Personally I would have preferred another savoury course rather than two dessert courses. Excellent service, lovely atmosphere! Would definitely eat here again .

    A truly magical way to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The waitresses were attentive an very polite. The food itself was truly outstanding. Each course had an incredible array of flavours packed into it and were beautifully presented. One of the best dining experiences were have ever had and we can't recommend it enough.

    We really enjoyed our 6 course tasting menu at Really Wild Emporium and would thoroughly recommend. Each course was delicious and such interesting flavours of local and seasonal foraged ingredients. Staff were all lovely and we loved the relaxed atmosphere- not at all stuffy. All about the food. Oh and lovely interesting wine selection. Very good value for money too for such a high quality meal. They happily tweaked one of my husband’s courses due to fish allergy. Nice that they remembered our previous communication. Thank you we will definitely be back when next in st Davids

    From walking in we were wowed!!! Fantastic food, good choice of drinks and wonderful staff. The head chef Jake came out and welcomed everyone personally. A very nice touch. A six course taster meal turned into nine with three gorgeous added bonuses!! My only grumble is that we don’t live close enough to go there more often!!! Would highly recommend booking as it won’t be long before Michelin come knocking at the door and you’ll have to book months in advance. We were on our honeymoon and our visit here just made it extra special. Thanks to all the wonderful staff.

    A lovely dining experience. The tasting menu was wonderfully varied with all hyper-locally sourced and foraged ingredients. A wonderful homage to the local area. Flavours and respect for the ingredients was superb - thank you to the chefs. The waiting team were busy but did their best to be attentive and helpful. The only slight shame was that cocktails were not available that evening but it did not detract at all from the overall experience

    Fabulous dining experience. Jake and his team are wildly passionate about their work which is original and inventive. The menu is based on local and foraged foods and the range of dishes surprising in delicious- from a nettle & goosegrass soup to a mackerel hash and the best rice pudding ever. Service was friendly and helpful. A sublime experience!

    A stunning evening of exploration and enjoyment! The tasting menu was an extraordinary experience, led by the young team of chefs and the front of house team. Scurvy grass, pennywort, goose grass and nettles allied with creamy crab risotto, apple terrine and the most delicious lemon posset … it was just wonderful!

    A very adventurous 5 course vegan meal was available on the evening menu and an extra course was added on the house. All four people on our table really enjoyed the meal and we will definitely be going back to The Really Wild Emporium. Previously we had only had a delicous vegan breakfast there but the evening menu was a very different treat that included locally sourced food.

    This is by far the best restaurant in the area, it deserves to have a waiting list for tables! The tasting be menu is beautifully thought out and presented, full of interesting touches and really satisfying. The wine list is clever: it covers everything without being complicated and it’s inexpensive compared to other places. The young people doing the work here are a great example of what can be achieved with a bit of vision, hard work and a talented chef. Highly recommended.
