Good Vegetarian Choice!

Visited on a rainy Friday lunch and was pleased there was free parking right outside. The sign outside saying it does 'weddings and wakes' made us chuckle. It's located next to a mucky old bit of canal / river but inside is very modern and clean, the staff were very friendly and the food was served... read more

Large riverside pub offering a good range of ales and variety of hearty meals at reasonable prices. Entertainment on the nights we were there by good musicians.

Went to Bargemans for a Sunday evening family meal 6 adults in total. The food was great and as previously advised the portions were massive. I'm not keen on the ordering and paying system, much prefer to open a tab and have all orders taken at the table rather than going up to counter to order each course and pay... More

I was pleased to read that your meals met with your approval. I am sorry that you didn’t quite feel the restaurant experience but the Bargeman’s does not offer table service and as such does not pretend or claim to be a restaurant. Your positive review is much appreciated and I hope that you decide to return. More

Found this place in Newport with some friends. Enter the restaurant, there's live music and plenty of people. The place is well decorated and the food is swell (Shepard's pie is powerful)..

We have eaten here 3 times now and the food has always been great. The extensive menu offers something for everyone and everything we have tried so far has been excellent. The place itself is lovely, you can sit outside and watch the boats or sit inside and marvel at the many shipping/nautical artefacts on display. They can cater for... More

Over here on our holidays with family and friends. Had an amazing meal here, fantastic portions and great quality. Not unreasonably priced considering how much food you got. Would definitely visit again ☺

Well I'm gonna be honest i felt after they had delivered our food that I was on an episode of 'Man Vs Food'. The portion sizes were stupidly big! My bf and mother thought exactly the same and we felt rather over faced. Fortunately the portion size didn't compromise the quality of the food, we all thoroughly enjoyed it and... More

Great place, next to the river Medina, large servings of food, reasonably priced, nice upstairs function room. Cask ales for the ale professor ! Lot of marine memorabilia from years ago. Nice big pub. Recommended for a night out, it is in the centre of Newport so good for lunch whilst shopping.

Ordered two burger meals (one surf and turf and one veggie). We found the staff here to be lovely, especially the bar staff. The drinks were very pricy, however. When our meals arrived they were well presented and in huge portions (almost too big). I was looking forward to my "dressed side salad" however I found there wasn't much dressing... More
