This place is terrible

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... read 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

This place was recommended by the hotel for us to watch an English premiere League match. Wide selection of beers- we did not try the food other than to order chips with a side of curry sauce - a perfect accompaniment to watching the game. The staff were super friendly there was an option to watch the game outdoors or... More

Stopped in for a beer and some soccer - pretty good beer selection, good atmosphere, and it turned out to be a good place to watch a match

We stopped by on a Sunday night for a drink and to enjoy the music. It's a fun and lively place. We had potato skins and onion rings which were very good. The music was fun but not very loud. Would return again just to enjoy the atmosphere.

The food in this pub/sports bar was decent and tasty, but nothing to get too excited about. Service was unfortunately very slow, and the waitress seemed somewhat annoyed at us when we asked if we could be served (after we had waited for quite some time). A nice place to go for a drink and perhaps a quick bite, but... More
