Stopped by for a beverage after work with a friend, this is one of the most pleasant places i have stopped by recently. Maybe I'm getting on a bit but the atmosphere was PERFECT, not a fan of loud sports bars, the this one could be for you too. Also, their beer selection and pourers knowledge, VERY GOOD. Next time...

In mid December, this place was hopping. Easy to get to, right on Broadway, you could miss it if you're not looking carefully. There is no doubt that the locals come here so there is great people watching. One of the few places open in the winter. appetizers. Prices were reasonable and the staff is extremely friendly. The pub food... More

We popped into the bar because we loved the name, and we are glad we did. They had a fantastic jam band that played fun tunes all night. The beer selection was wide ranging and good. The bar was packed but the services was great. After we had been in the bar for an hour, the bartender came over and... More

This place is a hidden gem! Located a 5 minute drive from the harbor. Located on Broadway. Went there with my husband for dinner. I used Trip Advisor to look for a restaurant. After the Awesome reviews it got it was a no brainer. All the reviews were true. Small pub type restaurant with a long bar and about 12... More

We walked here after a business conference near by. There were A LOT of us. This was on a Tuesday night. The bartenders looked a bit nervous when we all walked in but they handled the crowd great. Quality drinks, friendly staff, nice customers.

From the outside, this is a non assuming little hole in the wall. Inside, a fun (albeit loud) vibe with extensive beer list and good basic food. The sort of place you'd go if you didn't need the whole "New England Experience" and you just wanted a great lunch.

Call me crazy, but Pour Judgement has the freshest Guinness in Newport. Wings are spicy and delicious. Everything we tried was good. The atmosphere is what makes this place special. Welcoming, casual, good food, friendly service, what else would you want in a pub....oh yeah, fresh Guinness. Highly recommend.

Excellent selection of draft beer. Good food and appetizers all reasonably priced. Nice place for a drink and bite after a movie. Will definitely go back.

Pour Judgement was recommended to us by a bartender working his way through college in Naragansett. He said if you like dive bars and good food you need to try it. Truthfully it would not be the place that we would just walk into as we were walking by but we decided to give it a try. The place is... More
