The Fastnet Pub
As one of the oldest pubs in the city, The Fastnet still has that feel of old Newport. Sit at the bar, a booth, or one of the high-top tables and order things like fish and chips, bangers, or curry fries. This is also a good place to catch whatever sports game is on, especially if it’s a nice day, since you won’t be trapped in the usual dim sports bar scene as the large doors open to the street. Their backdoor patio and beer garden is one of the best places on the island to meet friends, play darts or pool, and enjoy the sunshine with a beer in hand. Most weekends have live music or a DJ, and they also put on other performances during the week, too.
