Late night diner - great comfort food!

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!

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.

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 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.

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.
