The Golden Lion bar is the hub of town, Newport’s favourite with locals and visitors alike.

Whether it is over lunch, dinner, or just a few drinks The Golden Lion is a great meeting place for friends and family not forgetting the dog (and yes, they drink for free). We stock the best local craft ales, premium lagers, Welsh ciders, an extensive list of wines, Welsh Whiskeys, and our favourite botanical Welsh gins.

As well as our carefully chosen variety of drinks you can also enjoy our imaginative menu and daily changing specials. We cook from the heart, using seasonal Welsh ingredients to create an interesting and varied dishes.

We care about our community and source our produce with sustainability and not too many in mind. Our philosophy is to truly care for our guests as individuals, so if you have any dietary requirements, we’ll do everything to make sure you have a variety of options to choose from.

We are also a popular live music venue. Every Saturday evening from October to March we have local bands and future Bob Dylans showing off their talents. Everyone is welcome to join us to dance the night away or just gently tap your feet to more acoustic gigs.
