After a VERY disappointing meal at White Horse Tavern (poor service), we came here for a drink. They're very nice, you feel like this is the place George Washington would have REALLY wanted to come to, if he could have. But then, he'd be too busy having FUN to plan the Revolution. ;)

A great Irish Dive Bar in downtown Newport. I actually went here twice. The food is your typical pub food, but all really good. Great selection and variety of beer. They also have two dart boards!

Stopped in for a beer (or 2). Had a nice vibe to the place. Bar staff friendly. Quiet mid-week but very busy Thursday on.

I visited here last night with my wife. The atmosphere was pleasant. The place was very crowded. Nice crowd of people. The staff was courteous and efficient. The bathrooms were very old but serviceable. Adequate selection of beer that was served quickly and was cold. I had a hamburger which was good, but nothing special. My wife had a Reuben... More

Stopped in for a drink with the wife. Not much attention from the staff. Ended up going to Buskers up the street for dinner. Not that impressed.

A little pricy on some of the beer but nice staff and cozy little pub. Rugby was on tv and there was a fire in a small wood stove. Enjoyed it

Nice Irish pub with great selection of beer. We didn't have food but the table next to us had food that looked amazing. Dart boards available. Room for large groups. Friendly wait staff.

A real pub atmosphere with sidewalk tables and pool tables. The food was really good and priced right. I will definitely return here.
