Oasis of civility in the chaos of Newport town centre. A proper Tardis pub with a small bar in the front and a comfortable lounge in the back. Itís Sam Smithís so I donít need to talk you through the beer selection. Come for the atmosphere. Best pub in Newport by a country mile.

Laid back Sam Smiths pub that extends well back, although you wouldnít know this from its small Tudor frontage, although this is attractive enough to make you want to come in. The drinks are of course limited to the Tadcaster Brewerís own selection, but you should find something to suit and its cheap as chips. Itís comfortably decorated with soft furnishings throughout and you can pick and choose an intimate corner or somewhere more in the action.

Samuel Smiths pub in the centre of Newport. Now, Newport is not your real ale haven, if you happen to be stranded in Newport than this is the place to go to notch up your Samuel Smiths beers if you have not done so already. The majority if not all of the beers are available here. It claims to be Newports oldest pub dating back to 1530. Lovely interior and like all Samuel Smith pubs, lovely prices.
