5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011 via mobile

Hidden gem. Great affordable food in awesome Irish pub atmosphere. The burgers were delicious and so was the fish and chips. The fries were handcut too.

Typical Irish Pub in Newport. Nice atmosphere if you are looking to have a drink with friends and sme light pub food. The food is fair at this restaurant. they have a wood stove in the winter. The service was average.

“Nice Irish Pub and live music; very reasonable prices on drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

I did think it was for a younger crowd at night but it absolutely has that pub feel. Being from Chicago, I definitely loved it for that. Reasonable prices on beer and food. Live music and crowd is jumping. I really like that the bartenders get into the action as well. Nice place for fish, chips and drinks.

“Perfect Place for a Drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

We stopped in on our way to the White Horse for a few drinks - the atmosphere was exactly what we wanted for a Pub in Newport.

“Very fun place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

I go to Fastnet for the good crowd and drinks. I've had the food a few times, which was decent for pub food, but it's the atmosphere that defines this place. Drinks are fairly priced, but they offer a huge selection - even Magners draft! They have a pool table, two free dart boards, a great bar, and multiple places to sit - whether it's outside on the benches in the smoking area or inside at one of the tables. Live Blues plays on Mondays - the bands are really good and it's much better than listening to the overplayed cover bands down on Thames Street. I say GO!
