Brown’s Fish & Chip Café

One of the oldest businesses in Pembroke dating back to 1928, this chippie was opened by Sid and Connie Brown and is still run by her family.  Connie was awarded the MBE, served fish and chips until the end of her life at the great age of 102 and became a Pembroke legend.

The building next door is JOHN FRANCIS, Estate Agents, which was said to be the town house of John Poyer, Pembroke’s Mayor during the Civil Wars of 1642-1648.  Poyer initially declared for Parliament but later switched sides in support of the King. However, this action led to the Siege of Pembroke by Oliver Cromwell in 1648 and the consequent destruction of the town walls and Castle. There is an excellent exhibition of this event in Pembroke Castle.
