Featured Newport Restaurants
1. Thompson's British, Modern restaurant in Newport 11 Town Lane - PO30
“A true island favourite” from Robert Thompson – perhaps its most renowned chef: this “romantic” five-year-old occupies a “quirky” listed building, where “tables opposite the open kitchen are in high demand, while upstairs is more intimate”. It wins raves for “outstanding” food “inventively using the best local/seasonal ingredients” and “there is every chance that one or more of the courses during your meal will be served by a chef”. “The personal cutlery drawers are an interesting touch” allowing your own choice of the best utensils at any juncture!
2. Llys Meddyg British, Modern restaurant in Newport East Street - SA42
2019 Review: “Always a highlight of our trips to the delightful little market town of Newport” – a polished Georgian coaching house in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, and drawing impressively on the rich local larder. It offers several eating options, from a seasonal al fresco area, to a cellar bar and “romantic” dining room.
3. Cen, Celtic Manor Resort Pan-Asian restaurant in Usk Valley
2018 Review: Slightly up-and-down reports this year on MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen’s pan-Asian dishes at this huge resort in Newport, but feedback includes more hits than misses.
4. Epicure by Richard Davies, Celtic Manor Resort British, Modern restaurant in Coldra Woods
Just as pan-Asian restaurant Cen opens in Wales's Celtic Manor, the resort announces another new dining destination, this time from chef and Great British Menu regular Richard Davies. It will take the place of the hotel's former fine dining option Terry M.
5. Steak on Six British, Modern restaurant in Usk Valley Coldra Woods - NP18
2019 Review: “Amazing views of the valley” reward a trip to this “relaxing”, contemporary venue on the sixth floor of this monumental resort. Too few reports for a rating, but such feedback as we have is positive on its steak house menu.
