Security staff picking fights with customers?! Avoid at all costs...
Nov 2016
This place doesn't even deserve one star and shouldn't be in business. I've only ever been here twice and will never go again. After dining at The Priory and then opting to go and have a drink elsewhere, we were shocked at the stark contrast between the establishments that Caerleon has to offer.

It's interesting that there is another review on here commenting on the "security" (more like thuggish) staff. A very short, bald "bouncer" was very aggressive and antagonistic to one of the group that I was with, to the extent that I (a woman) had to stand in between them to try and diffuse a situation, getting pushed around by this "bouncer" in the process. Surely part of their job is to calm and prevent situations rather than instigate them? This resulting in the bouncer actually assaulting one of us (hitting him around the face).

As for inside, it was empty and lacked any atmosphere and some of the regulars are just as unpleasant as the bouncers - a large group of women trying to intimidate me and another woman in my group by pushing and shoving at the bar and clearly feeling uncomfortable with other women on their "patch". One of these women actually kicked the other woman in my group!

I will never step foot in there again and judging by the fact that the place was so empty on a Saturday night, it looks as though many others have come to that conclusion too!

Appalling
Nov 2016 • Couples
Avoid avoid avoid avoid!!!!! Absolutely appalling criminal door staff who think it's OK to assault clientele. One had the hugest small man inferiority complex whilst the other goaded him into criminal behaviour. We have only visited this establishment twice and NEVER will again. Complete and utter meat head behaviour totally ruined what had been a wonderful evening for my birthday. And we only went in for one drink following eating at another local restaurant. Your door staff really are a total disgrace.

Good and quiet sports bar
Mar 2016 • Friends
The Bolero's Bar is located in the centre of the lovely village of Caerleon.
It's a good place to watch quietly a sports game, as it's not that busy like the other sports bars in Newport.
The service is very fast and if you're hungry, there's a Chinese restaurant upstairs, from where you can order and eat in the bar.

Security door staff are a disgrace to their profession
Jul 2015 • Friends
I live in Caerleon and have socialised in the village for years. Never have I been treated as disgracefully as i was in this in this pub. The door man is a bully with a chip on his shoulder, 4 middle aged women and he thought it necessary to push one into a table, smash our drinks on the floor and then verbally abuse us when he was asked to produce his security badge number. No explanation of why he was so angry with us or what we had done wrong. I would not ever recommend anyone to drink in this pub.

Late night opening and live music with Chinese upstairs
Oct 2014 • Couples
Live music keeps it open in the week and later opening at weekends. More a night club atmosphere than local pub but gives an alternative option to youngsters and singles!
