Visiting sailors will find that most of their needs can be met within Solva itself or elsewhere on the St David’s Peninsula.
Bay View Stores and Post Office in the upper part of the village, (known locally as ‘The Top Shop’), sells a full range food items, a large selection of beers, wines and spirits, cooking gas, newspapers and magazines.
There are three pubs in Lower Solva and one in Upper Solva, all of which serve food. The Ship Inn and Harbour Inn serves pub grub with the Cambrian serving restaurants food and The Royal George serve a choice of Chinese food or normal bar food. Both The Ship and The Royal George supply take-away meals. In addition to pubs, there are also a restaurant and two tea rooms in Lower Solva and a licensed café on Trinity Quay.
White diesel, petrol and cooking gas may be obtained from Ocean Haze Filling Station in St. David’s – a three mile journey each way. There is no commercial supplier of red diesel close by. The nearest chandlers are Robust Boats in St Davids, 3 miles each way and Dale Sailing at Neyland, twenty miles or so each way. Boat repair and maintenance services are provided by Solva Sailboats on Solva Quay.
