The Box

By Ben Gobbi

Our Story

Whether it’s a tasty takeaway lunch, or a carefully prepared meal as a midweek treat, or even a relaxed buffet for a get together with friends or on a larger scale a wedding party or a special celebration, we can provide it all. We take time and effort to source locally produced, quality ingredients in our food, and with over 20 years of cooking experience we can offer you the very best of what Pembrokeshire has to offer. Sustainability is also very important to us and we pride ourselves in using biodegradable packaging for our Takeaways, that can be composted or disposed of so there is no consumer guilt.

The Box is a family run business and we provide an easy going, friendly service. If you have any allergies or general preferences please don’t hesitate to contact us, as our food is all cooked fresh we can easily make adaptions where necessary, given enough notice.

Our Menus

Private Dining

What better way to celebrate a big event or party than with a private dine just in the company of your nearest and dearest, with no need for a taxi at the end of the evening! Past Private Dines have been held at customers houses or in Self Catering accommodations. All food is prepared through the day at our Unit and then transported over and finished off at the location. This takes the stress (and the mess!) out of the evening. Then we will ensure to leave the kitchen at the end of the night as spotless as it was found. So zero washing up or wiping down at the end of the night!

Self Catering

The food is delivered to your self-catering residence in heatproof biodegradable packaging. The tubs go straight into your preheated oven and heat for the time displayed on the accompanying advisory heating sheet provided with the food.

We do our best to cook and prepare the food as fresh as we can for maximum flavour and aesthetics, with this being said we ask for as much notice with the evening orders as possible to enable us to factor in sourcing the ingredients, preparation and potential delivery.

Weddings & Events

Congratulations on you’re engagement! Planning your wedding can be tricky. But once you find your perfect venue and come to searching for a caterer, we provide a varied service depending on what your after. We have plenty of wedding experience, and are so confident that with our knowledge and suggestion, you will come way from any meetings or chats with us with lots of excitement and positivity!

We understand above all that weddings are personal and individual and look forward to hearing any new ideas, or favourite food choices. But to make choices easier for couples we have a pack of menus that can be perfectly executed to a high standard on the big day. Please get in touch with us for more details.


We can provide delicious buffet catering for any event.


Here at The Box we have an exciting combination of Street Food & A La Carte dishes to tempt you. So whether it’s a tasty quick bite you’re after or something more substantial there’s something here for you, all prepared with locally sourced ingredients. The menu is available from 12-3pm and again at 5-8pm Tuesday – Friday & Sat 5-8pm. The evening service will include the ‘Dinners’ but as these are cooked to order we would appreciate at least an hours’ notice so that we can prepare the food. The rest of the menu can be pre-ordered or ordered on arrival with dishes taking between 10-15mins depending on busyness.


Take a look through a selection of dishes we’ve made. All locally sourced quality produce.

Why did I not know about this place sooner! Had the teriyaki chicken bao buns today and they were incredible. Best bao buns I have ever tried. I’ve got a feeling I’m going to be eating from here at every chance I get!

Staying nearby on holiday and ordered a 3 course meal for 8 people from the self-catering menu. We were celebrating a special occasion and small children meant we wanted to stay in our holiday accommodation. This solution was PERFECT! Absolutely, delicious food and really easy to heat up. All meals and courses were so tasty – the desserts were so pretty too! Tasty centrepiece to a special evening
