They managed to squeeze us in on a very busy Xmas night. We had a lovely table, gorgeous food and a very attentive bar person that made sure our glasses didn't run dry. Will deffo be back for a 3rd visit. A lovely gem.

There is a lively buzz to this place. Staff flit about enthusiastically and are without exception cheerful. Flavoursome, authentic food washed down by super cocktails ensure you'll have a meal to remember.

A group of us visited Dutchy's during a recent stay in Newport. The food was really good with some fiery spices depending on how hot you could handle the Jerk Chicken. Other good dishes were the Chicken Wing starters - again very spicy. Unfortunately on...More
