Well re-furbished in recent years this old Inn is so memorable because of the super-efficient staff. Their friendliness seemed warm and genuine and never got in the way of their professionalism. It was a very relaxing night as we neared the end of our coastal walk. We were a group of eight and all enjoyed our meal in the busy... More

The first thing that makes it so good is the staff. As the restaurant is always busy and the hotel has 11 rooms there are plenty of them. They always seem to have a smile and are willing to help. You just feel good staying here. The bedroom was quite small and ours (number 2) had no view but was... More

The Golden Lion in Newport has 13 modern bedrooms, a wonderful restaurant, a beer garden and a rustic bar. The restaurant and bar meals are well-prepared and very good. There are parking spaces opposite and behind the pub. The service is excellent. Within walking distance there are stunning views along the coastal path, an estuary and an almost empty sandy,... More

Stopped for a drink on trip South. It was pleasant enough but the proportion of second home owners and tourists seemed to have take the character away from establishment. The gardens out the back were good just a shame that like all others the smokers leave their stench. So nothing really wrong but just a shame the tourist dollar starts... More

Just got back from Sunday lunch at The Golden Lion. There were seven of us and the service and food was excellent. A wide choice of food from a interesting and varied menu. Everyone enjoyed the meal and I wholeheartedly recommend a visit, you will not be disappointed.

10/10 for friendliness of staff, the quality and luxury of the room, the restaurant food and the real ale. This is no ordinary hotel / pub and I would recommend it for a short break to explore an extremely attractive coastal area. Newport itself was a real surprise, especially as our visit coincided with the local market which specialised in... More

A popular pub so you need to arrive early if you haven't booked. There are tables in the bar area, where we ate, as well as in the restaurant, and there's also a sort of heated marquee. The food was good pub food, and the wine was decent. Friendly staff.

We were traveling up through Wales and came across this gem of a place by chance, the rooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished, we were given a room that happened to be near the kitchen, which was a bit noisy with the kitchen extractor fan, we asked if we could be moved and was shown another room at the...
