Fun Pub!

This bar is located on Broadway and is definitely more of a local spot. We found out about it through a friend who goes to Newport every year. We had so much fun at this place! They had a pool table, several dart boards, ping pong tables, and an outdoor sitting area. The drinks were average $7-8... read more

We stopped in for lunch. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything to write home about. It seemed like a hang out for the locals. Because of that, I felt that the known customers were tended to quicker than the tourists. Not that we had bad service, it just wasn't the quickest.

A nice pace to have a drink while cavorting with the locals. It had dart boards, ping pong and other activities.

Ended up coming here as a second choice because the was full... Should have been our first choice! The drink prices were very reasonable. I would suggest the pitcher if you have a few friends, very economical. Their steak tips were marinated very well. Wait staff was brisk and friendly. They also had great seating on the patio with some... More

Came here with a group of friends on a rainy night. The bar was packed but all was well. Beer was good. People were friendly and everyone had a good time. Much better situation than the last time I came. Very good beer selection. Always like my Lagunitas IPA and nice to see it on tap as a staple.

My husband and I dropped in very late, but that was no problem at all. We had a quick and very satisfying diner. The fish and chips are not to be missed and the steak points were just delecious with a tasty greavy. Do ask for their local beer! All in all a great local, no fuss, cute pub!

Fastnet is a great pub, average sized in the center of Newport. Easy to find, easy to get to, with reasonably priced food and drink. Can be a bit noisy at night, but is a fun place to gather. If you are looking for quiet, go at lunch, as any time after 6 is likely to be full and loud!... More

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.
