The usual service pattern is one train every two hours in each direction, southwards to Milford Haven railway station and northwards to Manchester Piccadilly via Swansea, Cardiff Central and Hereford.
Whilst the station has two platforms (as the site of the only passing loop on this section), most trains use platform one as it is adjacent to the entrance and ticket office. The line through the station was double track until 1988 and the station had its own signal box, but this closed when the branch from Clarbeston Road was singled & re-signalled in September of that year; the entire route is now worked under track circuit block regulations from the box at the latter station.
The station is staffed during the daytime and has toilet facilities, a newspaper kiosk, ticket office and a station buffet.
Most trains normally use the former up platform, although the down platform is still open. Haverfordwest has won many awards, including the Anglo Irish Best Station Award in 1992. High speed train services stopped at Haverfordwest until the early 1990s, terminating in 1994. The station was refurbished in 2002 and officially re-opened on 25 April 2002.
