Hook is a medium-sized village and community on the Western Cleddau, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

Hook is a Pembrokeshire village perched on the banks of the Western Cleddau and surrounded by woodlands and a riverside environment.

Although there is little or no trace of it to be found today Hook once had a worldwide reputation as a mining village. Anthracite was mined and exported across the world.

Sixty years after the demise of the mining industry Hook is a village with a school; two places of worship; a social club and a wide range of organisations ranging from short mat bowls to a History Society; a long established cricket club which boasts trophy winning men's, ladies and junior teams.[1]

The population of the community was 656 in 2001. Together with the communities of Freystrop and Llangwm, it makes up the Pembrokeshire ward of Llangwm.
