We so enjoy the whole experience of coming to Meat from the friendly service to the great burgers and fries. There is usually a special creation on the menu which this time was a babganoush burger which I'm told was excellent although I stuck to...the regular American with chilli fries which are just yum! We also had cocktails this time which were excellent so we will be back and happily recommend Meat to anyone who loves a good burger.More

Found this place on TripAdvisor when in Newport. Reviews looked great and we love burgers so it was the place for us. Well worth stopping in, nice and busy, food on other peoples tables looked lush. Waitress was really nice,showed us the specials menu and...told us about drinks on tap. Menu was not massive but i dont like too much choice. I ordered the Yankee and my partner had the helloumi burger both had cheesy fries. All food was amazing, both left empty plates. Really nice place,clean bathroom and on street parking across the road. Highly recommended.More

We tried this place as we love a good burger and it came up as one of the best in Newport, and they're not wrong! The menu isn't massive, but if you love a good burger you won't be disappointed, as what they do they...do really well! The service was excellent, the atmosphere is lovely and to top it off its really good value for money. We will definitely be going back again.More

I booked to come here for my husband's birthday meal in May. Mr B is a meat lover, and as many of the reviews here can't say enough about the quality of the food generally, I thought it was definitely worth going. We were not...disappointed! This is a small local business with great ambitions, and owners/staff who are clearly passionate about what they do and about the food - and drink - they serve. Sometimes, less is more and having a focussed menu ensures the Meat Bar and Grill can deliver quality ingredients. We started with the Beer-Battered Halloumi Fries (which were to die for - crisp on the outside, unctuous on the inside!) then opted for two of the specials; Mr B's steak came served "blue" (not many chefs get this right, so we'll dine to you Chef!) and my Korean-influenced burger with kimchi slaw was delicious. We also got to try some of the new cocktails they were developing and have to say they were pretty damn good too. If you are hungering after meat served the way it should be, with "I could eat that all again" starters and sides, this is where you need to go.More

At 48 years old and someone who basically lives on burgers I have to say if you love burgers do not go here. It will ruin your life. I have never, and will never have a meal like The King is Dead burger with Marmitey...fries. If perfection exists in a burger, it exists at Meat. My life is forever ruined because I do not live in Newport and cannot eat here every single day. I implore you if you are a fan of burgers and ever in Newport, or are even willing to travel to Newport, you have to eat here. Hands down the best burger anywhere; ever.More

Best burger place in Newport hands down!!!! Order online and the food was ready bang on time. I had their PortDeli burger with Dutty fries. I have to say it was top quality and would highly recommend. I can’t wait until it opens fully after...lockdown but until then will have to settle for the best takeaway around!More

Best burgers in Newport. Great as always. I'm a big fan of the Yankee and would recommend it to everyone. Been a solid option during lockdown and also a great place to dine in when available.

Ate here again last week and had another really good meal - everything was freshly cooked and the burgers were as tasty as ever. The 'normal' fries are great but the chilli fries are another level! Note the starter portions are generous - halloumi bricks...rather than sticks - they tasted great but I'd recommend a portion to share!More

Once again, the absolute best burger! The food is just fantastic and the atmosphere is friendly and fun. The team here are so brilliant. If you want a great evening - look no further.

Had a takeaway from here last night - outstanding! The JD burger was one of the best burgers I've had. Also -everyone MUST try the beer battered Halloumi Fingers. We cannot wait to return when hospitality has returned to normal to get the full experience...to dine in as the place looked beautifully decorated. I also have to add how efficient the replies on Facebook messenger were and how helpful the answers were! Cant wait to work my way through the menu!!More
