The list is in alphabetic order
BANK: Sadly the local bank (Lloyds) closed in 2017, but there is a cash machine at the Post Office and most major banks have branches in either Cardigan or Haverfordwest. As banks are closing on a regular basis it is best to check before travelling.
BUTCHER: T. Glyn Davies. Market Street, Newport. 01239-820246 Good quality, bit pricey.
DENTIST: Pen y Bont, Newport. Tel 01239-820083. This is a private practice and quite expensive.
