” Really nice Irish pub. It’s a lot more laid back and low key than most of the spots in downtown Newport, which is great. The beer selection is fantastic, and the food is awesome! If you want a more relaxed bar experience while in Newport, this is the place to go! “
” Superb. Got turned away from Brick Alley – had been recommended to us but was full – found Buskers. The quintessential Irish bar – warm welcome, huge stock of whisky and decent food at a very reasonable price.”
” Great food! Grabbed fish and chips and shepherd’s pie to go. Smelled so good on the car on the way back I couldn’t wait to chow down and forgot photos. It was excellent. Wish I had a pub like this in my hometown. “
” Awesome pub. Had the bangers and mash and it was amazing. “

” So glad we tried this place. I got the Cottage Pie and my husband got the fish and chips. We also got a bowl of clam chowder to split. Everything was delicious! I meant to get a picture of it all before we devoured it, but I completely forgot once we opened the to go boxes and before I knew it everything was gone! “

All I want to do when I have time off is to have a laugh with my school friends and go down the pub.
I started out writings songs for what I thought was going to be a maximum of five people down our local pub.
I really do want to just be able to sit in the corner of the pub with my friends and still go to the supermarket and not get bothered.
