Poor customer service as was rudely turned away when asked just for tea and cakes. Staff not at all welcoming and happy to turn away business despite the sign outside offering beverages and cakes. It was after 2pm and the restaurant was half full.

By far the best restaurant in Newport! For atmosphere, food, coffee and staff! It's not hard to see why they're rated higher than the rest.....because the rest just dont come close! 5* will definitely be returning!

Having heard rave reviews about Canteen, I was somewhat disappointed. The pizzas are fine but a lack of herbs and over use of greasy cheese was a let down. The atmosphere is ok, but not inviting for an evening meal.

Spent part of New Years Eve at this great restaurant. Very informal - shared tables, but as we were a couple it helped as we soon got chatting to the other customers. There was also a brilliant singer on which helped create a very special...More
