Busy pub serving good food. We had Sunday roast beef with the veggies and it was very good. Service was good even with big holiday weekend crowd.

The Place to Eat in Newport We were a large mixed age group and all had an amazing meal. Fish was absolutely perfectly white and flaky with light crispy batter, steak perfectly cooked, burgers delicious. Very clean plates at end of meal and all the team were extremely helpful, courteous and looked after us SO well.

I've been coming to the Golden Lion for 15 years since my folks moved to the area. I've eaten and drunk many times. Service, food and beer is superb. I've stayed in the rooms and had many great evenings here. It really is a great pub. Just go.

Great pub lunch. Good portion sizes. Dog friendly. Brilliant service. Would have given 5 but as everywhere in West Wales the kitchen closes after lunch and between dinner. If your in Newport it is a deffo place to visit.

Mostly excellent food, service was fantastic, the beef lasagne had been microwaved a little too long and as a result was hard all around the edge. My wife did also find a long hair in the starter which was a little off putting! We have always thoroughly enjoyed our visits but this time not as much hence only the 4 stars.

Haven't stayed here, but have had a few meals, all excellent. Edit: Another great meal in the bar last night. Plenty of interesting veggie options and my carnivore daughter said her burger was the best she'd ever had. Excellent deserts too.

The owners of this establishment should be extremely proud of what they have achieved. We checked in on the 20th Jan 2018. The staff member who checked us in was very thorough, very chatty and a pleasure to talk to. She showed us to our room giving good info about the hotel. Room was excellent and had a rear car park which was excellent. We ate in the bar as the restaurant was fully booked, however the staff were just as efficient. Took our food order at 18. 30 when the kitchen opened and we were eating by 18. 50. The only thing I can say about the food was absolutely excellent. Bar was busy all night, but I didn't have to wait more than 2 minutes to get served. Band playing from 21. 30 and nice blues cover band. Breakfast this morning, for a while we had the restaurant to ourselves. Again service was second to none. On offer was a range of cereal, fruit juice and fruit. We both went for the full English which again was really tasty. Checked out by 11am, and will certainly return again later this year. I advise all those who read these reviews to get booking as you will have an excellent nights sleep, good food and good service. Well done all the staff and management at the Golden Lion.

The food was really good. Whilst the portion sizes looked small there was plenty of food for everyone. The staff were friendly and were served in a timely fashion even on a busy Friday evening. Would definitely recommend and go back myself when in the area.

Friendly service and great food make this one of the best places to eat in Newport and the area. There is a small carpark on the opposite side of the road and tables in the terrace garden, restaurant and bar. It is a must place to go for me whenever I visit Pembrokeshire. Thoroughly recommended.

Excellent food. Portions may look small but is enough to fill. Went for crab and lobster cocktail starter and lamb chops for main. Garlic potatoes as a side were divine. My friend has the fries. That was a pretty bad choice. Dry and too crunchy. Venue is dog — friendly and there's different seating available — bar, restaurant, marquee or garden.

First visit here and it definitely wont be the last. Beautiful food. Calming atmosphere, although a lot of children screaming at one point. And very friendly staff. I had the best apple crumble in the world! Took me forever to eat because I didn't want it to end. Delightful.

Busy pub on the high street in Newport. Has a bar area and restaurant. The bar serves real ales and we managed to get a seat in the restaurant for diner without a reservation. Food was tasty with lots of specials to choose from and a good pub menu with plenty of fish and vegetarian options.
