Super welcome with great beers and attentive staff. Food in restaurant was perfect for us hungry yet hopefully discerning male golfers. Would go back tomorrow.

“Top Notch - Not to be missed”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Stayed recently in Newport and went to the Golden Lion. A busy and friendly local pub with a good selection of real ales. The jewel in the crown however is the restaurant behind. Modern and tastefully decorated and well laid out. Friendly staff providing good service. A superb and varied menu offering local produce at reasonable prices. Will definitely be returning.

“Excellent pub restaurant meal”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

This made the perfect end to our holiday . We booked an early evening meal and thought the restaurant at the back was set out very well. The staff were very accommodating of our 7 month old baby and had got a high chair waiting and room for the pram. They were very friendly and service was very good.
We enjoyed a lovely meal with well presented food. Everyone there seemed to be having a good time .

The restaurant was packed but they coped very well and it didn't affect the service at all.

Would definitely recommend for good pub food in friendly atmosphere with good service from staff .

“Fantastic”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

Recently staying in Newport we ate here a few times, it doesn't disappoint. A good selection of real ale on offer from a local brewery served by lovely staff. We ate in the bar one night and the restaurant on our last night, the lamb chops, beautiful, the Hake, delicious, the pub gets very busy and you can understand why serving food of such good quality, well cooked and beautifully presented.
We will certainly be back.

“First class”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

This was one of the best pub meals we have had in a long time, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Olde world pub atmosphere at the front, with refined dining in the restaurant at the rear. Excellent menu with reasonably priced wine and good choice of real ales. Service couldn't be faulted and the meals were beautifully presented.
