Great selection of good value food. And some good ales. Really helpful and friendly staff. I ate there on four occasions,and so did many of my friends and I did not hear any complaints. I really enjoyed the atmosphere.

I was wondering if they were growing the food in the back as the service was so slow, 15 mins to order desert is a bit excessive by anyone’s standards and 45 mins for mains to arrive was also poor

HUGE portions of curry. Reasonably tasty but quite expensive, not presented on the plate very well. Pub is in need of a facelift - very old and dated. Probably wouldn't eat there again when there are far nicer options in Newport. Sorry.
