About the Pub

Claiming to be Newport's oldest pub dating from 1403, the narrow frontage is deceptive as it gives access to a long interior on three levels. The main bar counter has smart red padded panels while several screens keep you up-to-date with various sports and news. Around the walls are pictures of some local sporting heroes, some set in recesses. There is a games room with a pool table at the lower rear while upstairs the "Chill Out Zone" has a pool table, sofas and a 10,000 track rock jukebox. Appreciate rock music? Enjoy it here. Food can be chosen from a varied menu at competitive prices: pub favourites with chips (there is a salad option), grills & combos, Frankfurter choices, kids menu (half size grills & combos). Wednesday is steak night (with a free drink) while there is a Sunday carvery. The ales are suspected to be keg but guest ales are often on sale from Cwmbran's Brew Monster. A good mix of clientele sees the more mature customers occupying the front of the premises with younger folk preferring the rear sections. Weekly events include a quiz (Thu), DJ (Wed & Fri), 60s, 70s & 80s disco on Fridays. High Street bus stops outside.
