Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We’d left it a bit late for lunch but no problem. Lovely food, good portions and a nice pot of tea. Rustic and cosy interior. Good experience all round. Will be back.

Really lovely food in a lovely place and made to feel very welcome. We were offered a bowl of water for our two Whippets. Not our first visit and won't be the last. Going back soon. 😁❤️

We were welcomed warmly by Martina and some of her staff who helped us with luggage and made us at home. The rooms were well presented and the facilities fully explained. Each day we enjoyed their excellent and ample breakfast and as a result needed...no lunch. A request for granola cereal and fruit (not on the menu) was cheerfully accepted. One of our group was a coeliac which was fully understood and catered for. Service was prompt and with a smile from whichever staff were on duty: They were happy to chat between dealing with us and the many customers. The bedrooms were small but well laid out with good en suites including efficient showers. The beds were of double size but comfortable. The lounge on the top floor was for our exclusive use with refreshments a TV and a frig and is comfortable and offers good views of Newport. Any issues with the rooms were promptly addressed by Jason. The only one he couldn't do anything about was the noise from outside in the morning from trucks and vans going about their business, but it didn't harm our sleep.More

Two of us stopped here for lunch on Friday afternoon. Great service, friendly and helpful.There is quite an extensive menu to suit everyone. It is certainly worth dropping in if you are in Newport.

Bras at Fronlas in Newport is a pearl at the Welsh west coast. The B&B has two well equipped and very clean rooms and a nice lounge at the top floor with a great view on the surroundings. Breakfast, of a very broad choice, is...in the cosy restaurant at ground floor. Whatever we chose tasted magnificent, not to mention the coffee which is beyond anything we have tasted in the UK before. No wonder the place is always full with guest during all opening hours. But it is the staff that gives the place a scent of magic. Tina and Jason with Claire, Daisy and the others provided an atmosphere (and “hygge” as we say in Danish) that was so warm, loving and inviting that we all felt very very welcome and well taken care of. Definitely the place to visit when in Wales.More

What a fantastic place. Went there for lunch which was superb. Small and compact but the service and food was exceptional. So good that we went back for breakfast and then breakfast baguettes to take away. Open for breakfasts and lunch but not evening meals....I will be back 10/10More

Beautiful restaurant, fantastic atmosphere and very attentive staff I had the best Ploughman’s Lunch ever. The quality of the ingredients was exceptional. It was big enough to share but I didn’t realise that until after we ordered!!! Haha

Called in for lunch and decided to share the seafood platter. It was fabulous. Really tasty pate with great smoked salmon and prawns. Ridiculous as it sounds it could have been improved with a bit more of the delicious bread even if it meant a...reduction in the quantity of the seafoodMore

We had a fantastic lunch here en route to Newport Sands. The ambience was great; laid back tunes floating over the sun-trap garden. The service was great; friendly, attentive, helpful. The food was great; we sampled the quiche, the beef cawl, and the rarebit which...were all delicious. We will certainly be back.More

We came here on the recommendation that they did great breakfasts, but we were a little underwhelmed. The coffees were very good but the breakfast menu was quite limited. They had gluten free toast available (bread rolls) but the scrambled eggs were poor quality and...our bread had not even been buttered, nor did it come with any butter. We didn’t go back sadly.More

Spot-on place for dog owners. I think they should make a rule that kids should be tethered outside though ;)
