We made a reservation for a Monday night not realising that all main meals are half price, which explained why the place was buzzing at 7pm. We were greeted quickly on arrival but had to wait to be shown to our table, not a problem. There appeared to be plenty of staff on duty however the service was a little... More

Visited here for Sunday lunch today with my wife. First visit to the Aston since it was called the last inn. We were greeted straight away by a lovely lady who explained the menus and was really quick with our drinks We opted out of having a starter off the 3course menu as nothing really appealed although my intention before...

Visited the Aston a couple of weeks back with my boyfriend. Very lovely and cosy atmosphere in there! The staff are all very welcoming and friendly. The food is always lovely in there. Highly recommend the pork belly, it is absolutely beautiful! Definitely will use this as a regular treat.

First time we have visited this gastro-pub just outside Newport and what a pleasure it was in every respect. Table booked in advance and we arrived on time and taken to the seating area without delay by smiling staff. Menu options were explained and we had a drinks order taken and then left to consider the menus. We all opted... More

A friend and i visited this pub whilst stopping at the Lilleshall Sports and Conference centre. This is a large pub decorated in a contemporary style. Whilst its nice surrounding it lacks a little character. For example there is a fireplace but no fire. There is also a shortage of soft seating. So this is an eating pub rather than... More

Used groupon voucher. Absolutely lovely, especially the steak. One member of our party said it was the best steak they had ever had. We will be back for sure.

Cooked to perfection and served with mushrooms , watercresss and hand cut chops. I had a Shropshire blue cheese sauce with it. Also, had a... More

Booked on a Groupon voucher and spent a wonderful hour munching beautiful sandwiches and cakes with my wife. Not only was the food brilliant, the place was nice and the staff were great. We'll definitely go back and will recommend The Aston to all our friends.

We went on the groupon offer, 2 course steak meal. We were welcomed by Matt and the waitresses who took us to our table. We both had the sirloin, which was cooked to perfection and no fat, melted in your mouth, it was one of the best steaks we have had! We chose a desert, I had the Eton mess,... More

Obviously under new management since visiting previously and not a patch on what it used to be. Decor changed, service very slow and poor albeit our lovely waitress did apologise several times, food middle of the road so unfortunately we won't rush back anytime soon. Shame!!!!
