Will not be returning to this pub ever again. Complete rip off from the over priced drinks to the over priced poor food

We ate here on a Monday night and were extremely disappointed with the food. The salmon was very poor value for £11 The size of the fish was small and it was overcooked. The meat pie was warmed up and dry on the cut side(it was cooked in a tray like school dinners!)The vegetables had also been warmed up in... More

Lovely new decoration, but food wasn't great. Went for lunch today with family. Mashed potato tasted very odd and had bits of raw potato. We were told it was to do with the supply of potatoes! Also had no ice cream - their main dessert. I'm willing to give it a go again, but am not convinced yet.

Tried this restaurant after hearing from various people how good it was. Very please to report after going along on a Saturday night for a meal with another couple, that we all thought it was very good. The Ladies had chicken wrapped in bacon and the boys had the usual sirloin steaks. The steaks were cooked to order and were... More

We happened upon the Stags Head while chasing down ancestors in Newport Cemetery. It was a good happening. This is a good location past the tourist area if you trundle up Steep Hill. I had the pork roast and it was delicious. Kathy Noltze Arizona

We were a party of 20 and we were put in a room altogether which was nice. We had already phoned our meals through as there were so many of us. The waitresses were lovely and friendly and we did not have to wait too long for our meals. When the meals arrived we all enjoyed our meals and not... More

On arrival we were welcomed by a friendly girl who showed us to our table, which was unfortunately right next to a party of very loud women. As we were still waiting for our other diner we stayed in our place. After 5 minutes or so the waitress must have seen our discomfort and offered to seat us in a... More

Eight main courses, every one unhappy with something. Medium steak was tougher than boots, 'Codfather' orders were told 'all the big fish gone, but we've got smaller ones', one of those turned out to be a hollow batter with no fish in it, item sent back replaced with the worse 'posh fish pie', vegetables were wrong on EVERY order, just...
