RUNWAYSKILNCoastal cafe in wild west wales
Wild seas, sweeping beaches, bustling habitat.
Bold food and simple accommodation (coming soon) at the most westerly tip of Pembrokeshire.
Formerly a farm and YHA hostel, National Trust-owned Runwayskiln had been lying empty and awaiting its next lease of life. In 2017, it got new tenants and a new direction.
Charlie Langrick and Claire Pepperell opened their cafe in the old piggery on 28th April 2018. The other buildings will be renovated through the year, ready to make a brand new accommodation offer opening soon.
Right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and on the way to Skomer Island, Runwayskiln is an absolute must-visit for walkers and island explorers. It is nestled amongst working fields and heathland habitiat and is within sight and sound of iconic Marloes Sands…. This hidden gem enjoys the perfect balance between getting away from everything and being poised for a big adventure.
Fresh fish and seafood, local meats and vibrant vegetable dishes that are freshly prepared every morning. The menu at Runwayskiln reflects and pays homage to it’s spectacular surroundings.
FREsh & local fish
Fish from the waters we overlook? It would be rude not to!
Delivered to us by the people who have caught it. You will taste the difference.
VEGGIE & VEGAN
Our pakoras have a loyal following... Spiced cauliflower and onion fritters, shredded beetroot slaw, pickles, sour cream and coriander.
Please let us know your dietary requirements and we will do our best to meet them!
IN THE THICK OF IT
We can't take credit for the location. We can tell you about it.
Runwayskiln is right on the coast path, next to birdwatching hub Marloes Mere and overlooking Skokholm Island and Marloes Sands.
It will humble and inspire you.
We are licensed and we are keeping it local.
Gethin's Pembrokeshire Cyder, Harbwr Brewery Tenby and Snowdon Craft Lager (okay - that's a bit less local) are supplying our summer favourites.
A PLACE TO RELAX
This is a place to refuel and replenish.
Runwayskiln cafe's easy, informal atmosphere makes it a popular place for a quick refuel (we have delicious range of cakes, including gluten free options) and leisurely lunches.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
“fish cooked to perfection”

"AN INSTANT FAVOURITE"
"I'm almost reluctant to tell you how fabulous this little place is. The easy coziness is warm and welcoming and the modern spin on a rustic farmhouse-style made it an instant favourite for us."
BELLA, via FACEBOOK
"The absolute jewel in the crown"
"I hope their venture is a big success. Marloes is the absolute jewel in the crown of the Pembrokeshire coast."
ACCESS, parking & facilities
Runwayskiln is in a conservation area and is accessed on foot/paw (with an exception only for Blue Badge holders). This is important - we want Runwayskiln to be a quiet place for wildlife, for us and for you.
We are 150 metres from the National Trust car park at Marloes Sands and parking charges apply from 1st March to 31st October. The Marloes Sands car park is free to NT members, £6 for a day ticket (non-members) or £3 for up to 3 hours (non-members). Charges apply until around 17:00.
Paying for parking? Make the most of your ticket! It can also be used at Martin's Haven (the embarkation point for Skomer and Skokholm).
Blue Badge holders are invited to use the small private car park at the end of Runwayskiln... Just drive through the Marloes Sands car park and head down our track. If your mobility needs are significant, please use the courtyard as a drop-off point. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information.
The W.C. facilities are the National Trust toilet block on the track (yes, we really are that rustic).
We all love a well behaved dog and Marloes Sands is a dog friendly beach all year round. Space is limited in the cafe and so four legged friends are welcome in the cafe grounds. We have lots of outside seating, shady spots for tired dogs and fresh water bowls dotted around. We also have a resident cat, Charlie. He'll be keeping an eye on things.
Runwayskiln is surrounded by farm land and livestock and so we request that any visitors to Runwayskiln observe the Countryside Code and keep their dogs on a lead.
Runwayskiln cafe will re-open on

we take bookings for 12:00/12:30 and 14:00/14:30.
