The Stonehouse is a Jekyll and Hyde establishment. By day it makes its money catering for local offices with its food offerings. As long as your expectation with regard to quality is not too high, you will get a reasonable meal for a very low price and It's friendly enough. However, if it relied on its livelihood as a pub it would more than likely close in a very short period of time. The reason is simple, they do not seem to see the correlation between managing unruly customers and... (read more)

We took my parents to this pub for a meal yesterday (Sunday lunch) and I have never had such a poor dining experience. The place doesn't feel clean - the staff were unfriendly - the atmosphere was dreadful - and the food quality was shocking. My husbands meal was inedible (how can a burger be so badly prepared?) and he was given a refund; my dads steak was chewy and tough. My mum and I had the Roast chicken dinner - the chicken was good but the vegetables (of which there were few) were... (read more)

The Stonehouse has improved greatly since I started visiting last year. Other reviews have said about children not being welcome unless they're with their dad. This is absolute rubbish! I have been on many visits where the bar staff are very friendly towards the children regardless of who they are with. The only time I've known there be an issue is where there have been children running around the pub but all that happened was the children being asked to sit down. Rightly so when there is...

First and last time at this pub.You could hardly get through the dorr for smokers/swearers/and youths tossing a Rugby ball.The interior dreary.The Barmaid has obviously never heard of customer contact and was in Robotic mode.Our two baked potatoes with fresh green salad took some 20 mins to arrive,noting that people after us had ordered and got their meals.It was a medium sized potatoe and the fresh salad was coated in rusty brown ends throughout,definitely not fresh,and the potatoe luke...

1st time visit, sticky tables and unfriendly service I feel from my experience, nothing attractive about this pub in my opinion, but the food was excellent, although a bit pricey for me.
I would not visit again though. (read more)

I came across The Stonehouse in Newport by accident. I work near the M4, on an industrial estate with little opportunity for decent pub lunches locally, and I thought I'd try The Stonehouse, as it's only a mile or so away. It's a tough place to find amidst various roads, connecting roads and more connecting roads, and it is effectively in a fairly unattractive spot, near what looks like a fire station.
But, first things first. The car park is a bit small and obsessed with "disabled... (read more)
