I was told about this place as a quirky interesting place to visit. A 5 minute walk from Newport City center right on the water. I was there mid morning and place empty but lots of interesting maritime artifacts in the spacious pub There was a very extensive interesting food menus and plenty of long tables for large group dining....

This is a fantastic pub to visit any time of the year but it's great to sit at one of the numerous outside tables overlooking the quayside when the weathers good. It's just as good in the winter too as the pub itself has a very cosy feel to it with fires and many interesting nautical items scattered around the... More

Fabulous lunch as always. The Bargemans Rest is set right next to the river in Newport town and on a sunny day even in November it was a little sun trap. Parking can be a problem if you arrive at busy times but don't let this put you off as there are plenty of other car parks just a short... More

I have eaten at The Bargeman's Rest at least a dozen times in the evening time over the past year. It is a very friendly pub, bar staff very friendly and have always been made to feel very welcome. No TV on, so no sport and the place is alive with people talking to each other - excellent. The food... More

Had a lovely meal tonight with a friend, we both had a fantastic meal and a few drinks. It was a real good hearty pub style meal the IOW burgers were amazing. I've visited many a time but tonight's meal was great and the live music was an added bonus. Staff are friendly and welcoming :)

I have to be honest and say that had we found this establishment as we drove past, we would have probably kept going! However, we were looking for somewhere to eat and the Trip Adviser reviews looked promising so we parked up and ventured in! The inside of the pub is quirky and filled with barge/navigation paraphernalia. There are several... More
