Good Little Pub!

Stopped in here while in Newport. The staff was friendly and there was a great vibe in this bar! The drinks were affordable. Would make this a bar I come back to!

Stopped in after getting tattoos across the street for a bite to eat and a few beers. Great spot for drinking and watching the soccer game. It's small but cozy.

Looks similar to authentic pub. Eclectic crowd. Friendly Irish service. Warm atmosphere. Noisy though but fun!! Bangers and Mash favorite! Good food! :)

So this lovely little pub is the go to place for our European friends in town. We met them for a rugby match and there was standing room only! The atmosphere was phenomenal-lively, multicultural, and all problems solved over a Guiness. The Irish breakfast has real bacon, sausage, Irish sausage, blood pudding, potatoes, eggs, & Heinz beans. Great service, locals'... More

Stay away from this place. The bartenders are rude, the late night food is terrible. Everything is sticky - just not a great place to be. The only saving grace is that they have descent beer on tap and there is pool / darts and an outside area in the summer for ping pong. It's a drunken college hangout. No... More

Got in from our 7 hour drive and stopped for dinner. It was Sunday night and they had live music and were busy. Kept the waitresses busy but they were excellent. Loved the fish and chips and my sons rueben was also very good. Liked the atmosphere and food.

Loved the authentic Irish atmosphere, and on Sunday nights they open up the floor to traditional Irish music players who get together and play a classic seisun (session). Great atmosphere. Pretty good beer selection (Guinness of course) and pretty good food.

I needed a place to sit to make a phone call and there was a pub nearby so we went in to have a beer and make a phone call. After seeing the menu we ordered calamari as well. I was sort of hoping the calamari wasn't all that good because I wanted to eat bangers and mash. Unfortunately the... More

Stopped in here for lunch on my last day in Newport. Awesome bar look, great beer selection. The sever however seemed annoyed that we were there (we were the only people there). We got a couple draft beers and ordered appetizers and the lunch special. We thought maybe the sever was having a bad day, but she seemed nice on... More

Fastnet is a great place to hang out with a proper pub feel - think dark wood, beer on tap , tvs showing the game and dart boards! During the summer they have an outside courtyard which is pretty cool to hang out in - they also have weekly quiz nights and music nights. Always end up there at least... More
