Visited here on Memorial Day weekend. Pretty busy, as one might expect. It’s definitely a public house in Newport - there’s not a lot of character and, in fact, it seems rather old and worn. Unfortunately, not in the charming antique kind of way. Service was pretty good, but I was very disappointed by the lack of tasters on this particular weekend, and the beers that I tried were merely OK. Prices suck. Ultimately, this was kind of a tick for me.
I went to the Rogue Public House in beautiful Newport, OR about six years ago while driving the PCH with my wife. We actually stayed at the B&B upstairs, which was pretty incredible. Nice big place that has two bombers in your fridge when you arrive. Overall, was a big fan of this place, great selection of Rogue beers on tap, good food, comfy atmosphere, would definitely recommend this place...especially anyone interested in crashing there for the night.
Wednesday night around 9 o’clock and it felt like a kindergarten. Kids running around and screaming. The beers were tasty and there were enough to choose from. Not as many as in Rogue Portland though. Good selection of bombers of course but drinking a bomber all by myself in a brewpub is not something I prefer. Service was friendly and prompt although my clam chowder was served warm not hot but it seems that it’s their style. Cosy and warm place... a bit less kids and voilà! I wish I knew about the B&B rooms upstairs.
I’ve been here a few times over the last 11 years. It went from a really great experience in 2003 to a big disappointment a few years later to a little better this last time a couple days ago. The beers have always been great. The service this last time was just really slow considering how many people were not in the bar and restaurant. The clam chowder came out luke-warm. I don’t understand how difficult it could be to serve chowder hot. Besides that the food is better than average but not good enough to justify the price premium.
I like the Public House in Newport. The decor is definitely Rogue brewpub. You can get a decent selection of to go bottles and shirts, ect... Food is really good and service is great! Close proximity to Old Town location like Ripleys & the Aquarium. Afterwards, head accross the bridge to Brewers On The Bay to see the actual brewery!
Stopped in on Saturday of the Wine and Seafood Festival. A crowded mad-house, but the staff handled it just fine. Friendly and attentive service, as it has always been every time I visit. 20 something taps, usually with a new brew for me to try. The bar is comfortable but nothing special. Extra seating is at a long half bar behind it. Over all a nice place to stop in at made even better by the people who work there.
Really had great service yesterday, from te hostess & wiatress both. Food very tasty & fairly price. Ruben is excellent, as is the cheese soup and fries. all out of fish & chips at the time. Have about 20 routes on tap covering the whole reange of styles, & rogue brews fine beer. my only caveat is why do the beers cost more here, at their home, than at any other pub ?
