A large group of feminist women attempted to drink at this pub today but were denied entry purely on the bases on them being women and feminists, ,this is absolutely unacceptable in this day and age. Many of the women in the group are lesbians...which makes me wonder if that was the reason for the denial of enter, if so then you are committing a hate crime and breaching the equality act.More

I couldn't find any information about this historic Inn dated 1533 on line and thought it must be shut. I was delighted to find it open on a recent trip to Newport. We had a tea and coffee there as we had already eaten but...they have a lovely food menu there too. Unfortunately the menu can't be downloaded on this site because the photo is too large!More

Sam Smith's pubs are old fashioned and full of character and normally very cheap. This one is the dearest pub in the area a glass of wine and a pint of bitter was £4 dearer than anywhere else in the area, probably the reason why...it was half empty. Attitude of staff when questioned about the cost was poor to say the least,drank up quick and left and won't be going back.More

You go here to drink good beer read the paper talk to other people or not as you like. The landlord is very welcoming. The Brewery Bitter is too drinkable !

This charming traditional pub is steeped in history. The staff are welcoming and the food is very good. One of the things I like most is - no TV!

Quick stop before running for the train for food and it was surprisingly good. One ordered a burger, the other a sausage and mash. Recommend trying it.

Ok it was a Monday lunchtime but the place was dead. Total of three people came and went in 75 minutes. Asked for a menu from two members of staff who were far too engrossed in a long conversation to serve this solitary customer. My...meal was placed silently and out of reach on the long table where I was seated. ( very strange ) Steak and kidney pie was fine, niggardly portion of chips and stone cold overboiled vegetables. As I had time to kill I had a coffee and read a couple of the three day old newspapers. Only thing different from a dreary Funeral parlour was the lack of piped organ music. When leaving I saw a sign saying it was one of the top 50 pubs in Wales. Someone has a strange sense of humour !More

Walked the length and breadth of Newport and this has to be the best pub! Nice beer (Sam Smith), no background music, just a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Surrounded by historic charm - if you need a quiet escape for a pint or two, this is...the place!More
