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.

Went for the curry club night which was excellent. Poppadoms with red onion relish, followed by mixed pakora as a starter, followed by different curries for us both and rice with a giant naan. Everything was cooked to perfection, with great flavours, and all served...by super friendly staff, who really are dog friendly as well. Everything was spotlessly clean, and one of the best curries we have had for a long time, best of all just a 10 minute walk from our accommodation.More

Great welcome from Lesley. Delicious shared starter of chicken tempura with sweet chilli sauce or soy sauce and a little salad. Very refreshing and appetising. Sirloin steak cooked to order, chips and salad , well presented and very satisfying. Sea Bream, roasted vegetables and mashed...potatoes…heavenly. Beautifully cooked and presented. Compliments to the Chef. Highly recommend the Newton for excellent food on the island, or just for a drink and a wee chat. Always made welcome and so appreciated.More

My husband & I recently enjoyed a lovely 2 day break in Millport. We had the good fortune to be there on a Wednesday which is curry night at the Newton Bar. We were absolutely delighted with the wide range of curries on offer. The...poppadoms, spicy onions & mixed pakora starters were absolutely delicious so tasty. The curries we chose were so flavoursome & authentic (all freshly cooked to order) also the portion sizes were extremely generous. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Newton Bar not only for their amazing curries but for their friendly, attentive & efficient staff. On our next trip to Millport we will definitely make sure we are there on a Wednesday 👍More

Wow! I didn’t expect to find such amazing tapas food in Millport. Beautifully presented tapas dishes with authentic flavourings and a wonderful selection of vegetarian, meat and fish dishes The crispy onions and fillet steak were amazing and the prawns were huge, juicy and so...delicious. At the end of the meal I fancied an Affogato after describing to Lesley she went off and brought the ice cream, espresso and liquor Five star review from me and I will be back next time I’m on CumbraeMore

Family lunch with the doggo! 3 adults and 2 teens, everyone was fed and happy. We got Burgers, Chicken Pizza, Haddock and Chicken goujons all served with chips and side salad (except pizza). It was quiet when we went in, got seated and served immediately....Menu had a good selection including vegetarian options and a kids menu. Large portions, i'm truly stuffed, good value for money, each adult meal about £10 kids meal £6-ish. I would definitely go back and definitely recommend anyone looking for a lunch in Millport to pop in there. It's dog friendly and our bassett hound Lola got a wee nap in while we were all stuffing our faces.More

Went here for pub lunch I myself got a quesidilla it wasn't fantastic spices etc inside it were great, there was no cheeses however I've always had quesidillas with cheese, the chicken that was used was dry as, it was precooked chicken strips the kind...you get in a pack in the fridges at the supermarket that had just been heated up, which is why it was so dry was disappointed for the price of £10.50 for the ingredients used or lack of. The waitress when we asked for our bill shouted from the bar how much the bill came to this was unprofessional and rude.More

One of the best steak pies we've had on this trip. Fish was fresh and delicious too. We went on a Sunday and they do not take bookings (good for us), so perfect for a spontaneous bite to eat or a pint in the pub.
