Having had a couple of really unsatisfactory meals here in the last couple of years I vowed to not go back but when looking for somewhere near Bassaleg for a family lunch on a Friday recently, my brother recommended the Rup,after another recommendation. He said it had changed hands and was apparently now very good.
Decided to give it one last try and thank goodness we did, what a find! All 7 of us had different and thoroughly enjoyable meals presented both artistically and with interest and careful thought. I had the cider battered cod and chips and I swear I will never eat a chip as good as those ANYWHERE!
The children really enjoyed both the choice on their menu and the food also.
The service was friendly, attentive and not speedy but not slow either, to be honest any wait would be worth it.
2 of our party have since been back for Sunday lunch and found that to be faultless too.
Highly recommended, looking forward to being back in Wales yo visit again.

The food is all fresh, not pre-packed and reheated! Prices are sensible. Usually 3 or 4 real ales on offer. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, the staff and the landlord understand what satisfies customers.

We have had three meals at this little pub and can't praise it enough. The standard of food is of a top restaurant quality. The presentation is outstanding and well thought out. We have had two evening meals and my husband rates the mixed grill as the best he's ever had, Good menu selection with plenty of choice for everyone. This Sunday we went for Sunday lunch and were not disappointed. The quality of the ingredients used were of a very high standard and the pina colada pavlova was to die for. Well worth a visit if you want a treat. Will definitely be going back as often as possible.

Went for lunch on Friday. First time since new management . What a fantastic meal !!!!We had a table of 7 and all were impressed with the meal they had ordered. The presentation was top class, the taste was exceptional and the quality was incredible value for money ! 2 of our guests were obviously impressed as they booked Sunday lunch! And another guest mentioned "how difficult it would be to beat those fish and chips " pub classics were on the menu, but I chose off the specials board , Hake on a bed of samphire !!! Delicious ! Well. Done chef and well done manager ! Will definitely be returning soon.
