A very good bar overall. The tap selection is solid, but certainly not outstanding. They have a small selection of local/regional breweries, some national craft stuff and then some (I seem to recall) macro as well. The food, though, is outstanding and really good value. I had the hot pastrami sandwich and I also tried my wife’s grilled cheese; both were superb - classic pub grub, and really well made. The prices on beers were fair as well. Friendly and pretty efficient service. Has kind of an ’upscale dive bar’ feel to it, if you catch my drift.
Newport doesn’t have a lot in the way of beer destinations, so if you find yourself in town this is a very good option - especially for a meal with your beer.

It is small and often crowded. The draft selection somewhat limited. The service is good. The taps are not as exciting as they used to be. There is a new chef and the food- at least the specials have improved overwhelmingly.
Visited on a busy Sunday afternoon, and we had burgers with fries and some nice beers to go with the food. Service was quick, jokingly and friendly. It’s a narrow and long room with seating for around forty people, and there’s also room for approx twenty people at the bar. Some not so interesting beers on tap, but quite a few good ones too.

An overall good restaurant/bar in the center of things on a busy pedestrian street, downtown Newport. The waiter mixed our food up but I did not mind the dish I had. There was a fair but small beer selection.
Chill little bar for downtown Newport. Selection is not exceptional, but very good. Vibe is low key and seems a bit more like a locals kind of place than for tourists. Food is pub by but solid enough. Definitely a worthwhile stop if you’re in town.
Best little bar in Newport - without a doubt! Very laidback place, nice beer list, the staff was super friendly and helpful, and the food was also very tasty - best guacamole I have had. Had a Laqunitas and Firestone Walker while I was there. I will be back!
