We moved to Newport recently and live so close to this bar and we’re keen to find a great local. Called in tonight for a meal and a few drinks. Had delicious fish finger sandwiches, beer and wine. Really lovely atmosphere. Lots of people having a drink before a Dragons game. Will definitely return

Met up with friends for a bite to eat... Recommend the hunters chicken which was absolutely delicious.
A great atmosphere, it was open mic night so had the pleasure of listening to some amazing artists... even had a dance!!

Visited here with hubby on a day off for some lunch, after we heard that new owners took over a wee while ago, and they have employed an award winning chef who has come up with a super menu. The place has been refurbished to a lovely standard. Lewis and Seng are very welcoming and clearly know what they are doing. The new menu had a cracking choice to suit all, at very reasonable prices with super specials.

Atmosphere was much better than what you would associate with old school 'Sports Bars' of the 80's and 90's. You can tell that Lewis and Seng have invested time, money and boosted positive energy into this place. It was very clean, well spaced out with pool tables available and a large outside terrace with views of the castle and river Usk. We felt relaxed, and enjoyed our few hours here.

I haven't visited during the evenings or weekends. However, they have lots of events on which people rant and rave about. So will definitely plan a evening visit in the near future.

Went here for a quick drink after visiting Mojo the Food Bar. Was absolutely delighted that a pint of Carling was £2.70!
