Great ambiance and fine collection of beers from around the world. Check out the back yard when the weather is right. Good, attentive staff. Food is fair bar fare but good enough for the purpose of the pub. Ask Louie to tell you a joke or two.

Had the unique opportunity to eat here on consecutive nights. The first was planned for drinks, then dinner. We wanted off the beaten path(sorry Brickyard...), and Fastnet fit the bill. The Steak-tips were absolutely delicious, as was the Cod sandwich. All prices were reasonable. The outdoor seating drew us back for a needed drink after the Cliffwalk, and while pondering... More

This pub has changed names over the last decade, but never lost that local pub atmosphere. If a soccer (football) game anywhere is being televised it will be on the tv's. We come here for the Sunday Irish jam sessions. Anywhere from 5 to 10 players take over the center table of the pub and play traditional Irish music. Great... More

Everything was good and taste. Only thing was that there was a 20% tip and you cant change it. We ordered a cheese burger and it was great.

A classic pub recommended by sailors. Open until late, pool table is fun for meeting strangers, and losing to them!

We had a late lunch. Great food and service. The hamburgers can't be beat...my dad doesn't like to eat out, but said he'd eat another burger from here. Cod sandwich and clam chowder were delicious too. Because the large windows at the front were removed (beautiful day), it was nice eating inside but being able to feel like you were... More

We came here for lunch on our last day in Newport. Too bad we didn't find it sooner. My friend loved the chowder and I loved the fact the corned beef was real, not the coldcut stuff. Food, prices and service were awesome. No long lines for seating. Another reviewer said not to be put off by the outside and... More

Went for lunch on a rainy Tuesday. Quiet place, nice beer selection and excellent shepherds pie. The bangers and mashed were also tasty, though the beans were only ok, but overall an enjoyable meal with a loca, pub feel.

Thank rorer417
