Maggs Optics

6 Riverside Arcade, Bridge St, Haverfordwest SA61 2AL, UK – 01437 767744

Very professional and friendly. Moved to them after being treated by another corporate high street optician like an item on the production line. Maggs is where you should go. I use them for spectacles and contact lenses. Can't praise them enough, especially Mr. Devereux.

Fast, efficient, thorough and polite. The best opticians in Haverfordwest, wouldn't go anywhere else.

Seraphim Aesthetics

2 Corner House, Portfield, Haverfordwest SA61 1BW, UK – 01437 779999

I won a pedicure through #winitwednesday and it was beautiful! Very friendly, calm atmosphere, and I came out feeling refreshed with beautiful looking toes! The time absolutely flew by and I loved it! I'm very eager to try out more of their treatments - I might book myself a manicure next!

I've had 3 massages at Seraphim Aesthetics , couldn't be more pleased . There's a very friendly atmosphere the minute you walk through the door . Salastina's massage is second to none . She's also very friendly and bubbly, puts you at ease from the start 😀.

R & R Treatment Rooms and Training Academy

Bridge House, Swan Square, Haverfordwest SA61 2AN, UK – 07901 678158

I totally love going there as it's such a welcoming atmosphere. R&R is my ''Go To'' salon in Pembrokeshire. My usuals are Massage, Waxing, Nails, Reflexology and Reiki. Because they work with energy they understand and can take care of imbalances that wouldn't otherwise be picked up in a ''normal'' salon. The care quality, work detail quality are of London standards. Definitely book in advance if you're here on holiday though as they get exceptionally busy during peak seasons. Off peak you're more likely to be able to do a ''drop in'' appointment.

Margaret Williams Clinical Hypnotherapist

18 Princess Royal Way/Winch La, Haverfordwest SA61 1PZ, UK – 01437 762812

I was a heavy smoker until I had hypnotherapy nearly 5 years ago. 1 session and I haven't smoked since

I was apprehensive when I first approached Margaret for help but needn't have worried. She put me at ease and my initial feelings of embarrassment were short lived. After a short course of three sessions, I have been able to fully return to normal life again with more confidence and have already made up for time lost last year.
