I went to the Waterloo for a work colleagues leaving lunch and was very surprised at what we got. Having driven past the hotel many times I did not expect what was behind the doors. We had ordered ahead and so the owner was expecting our party of 8 at midday. Inside the decorations are quite olde-worlde with lots of train memorabilia. The food was cooked fresh and ready pretty much when we arrived. The manager /owner also seemed very friendly and helpful. I ordered the lasagne and it was very tasty and a decent portion size. Some of my colleagues had the club sandwich which looked like a speciality of the restaurant. The sandwich was massive served with large chunky chips which a few of our group struggled to finish it. The desert menu was not fantastic with around 5-6 choices. I had the Chocolate Brownie served with cream and it was nice, but probably not worth the money in hindsight and that leads me onto the only real downside of the meal - the cost. At around £15 per head for the two course meal it did represent great value for money in my eyes and maybe a lunchtime specials menu would have been worthwhile tooffer to customers in the future.
A pleasant lunchtime meal and another venue ticked off in Newport.
