Return visit to this fabulous restaurant, pleasant welcome and great views from our table. All waiting staff were very pleasant and had a good knowledge of the food. We have done both lunch menus both equally delicious but the tasting menu is definitely my favourite. The staff are always happy to discuss allergy needs and dislikes finding alternatives.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, sadly during the CORINA-19 pandemic so the number of tables was limited as was the menu. We were served a delightful meal by friendly staff. We look forward to revisiting here again when they reopen and in daylight as the views are stunning.

We love this place. It’s just the right level of formal, yet boasts a really relaxed feel too. We enjoyed every course from the market menu - the lamb and beef dishes were particularly outstanding. The drinks menu had lots to choose from and we felt the wine was affordable. Service was prompt and friendly; we didn’t feel rushed. We were there for a birthday celebration and the staff organised a lovely “happy birthday” plate which was very thoughtful. We can’t wait to go back!

We had an outstanding taster menu lunch here on Saturday 31/10/20. The service from start to finish was excellent with excellent adherence to all Covid guidelines, so we felt very safe and looked after. The food was delicious, varied and extremely satisfying. The ambience in the restaurant was relaxed, peaceful and we were very well looked after by very attentive staff. The restaurant was very clean with spectacular views over the River Tay estuary. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!

This was our second visit to The Newport and the food was as fantastic as the first time we came. Our main server was very helpful and friendly, as were several of the other staff but when we first arrived the first member of staff who cleaned off the wet seats for us outside to have a drink seemed annoyed at our presence so it wasn’t a great first impression. There were a lot of people eating in a small room, which made me a bit uneasy considering the pandemic, but everything was clean and well presented so it mostly felt fine. I would have felt more comfortable with fewer diners. We went to the bakery afterwards to buy a treacle loaf because it was so delicious.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch in the midst of Covid restrictions. The restaurant was organised and efficient, taking temperatures and contact details, ensuring masks were worn and providing hand sanitiser on tables. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. We had the 4 course lunch menu which had a good range of dishes. The game terrine was delicious, as were the beef and lamb mains. The highlight was the apple soufflé with toffee sauce which was amazing! The only thing missing was a nice glass of wine!

Food, as expected was small portions but excellent well matched flavours and taste and of good quality.
Absolutely no atmosphere, no background music and could hear conversations from other tables at some distance.
The decor is very bare and sparse, perhaps the reason for the echo and vibrations of sound?
Biggest complain was at a 1.15 lunch (end of October) there was little or no heating on and it was extremely cold, made worse when we were sitting next to a stove heater that was not in operation.

Lovely food again in these strange times. For a lunch menu I would have preferred a shorter 6 course taster at reduced price rather than the 8 course. This bearing in mind that we could have had the simpler 3 course lunch but we always like to see what new dishes Jamie and the team have come up with.

We had a great lunch for 2 from the Market Menu. All of the food was delicious but the Apple Soufflé in particular was amazing.
The restaurant was extremely busy so the service was a little slower than hoped for but understandable.
Will definitely be back, hopefully in less restricted times when we can sample the alcohol choices.

The service standards were excellent, the waiting staff tread the line perfectly between attentive without being intrusive and were knowledgeable and informed about the dishes they were serving.
Nothing to do with the Newport, current restrictions meant we couldn’t add to the birthday celebration with a lovely glass of something to accompany a good meal.
The plate inscribed with a chocolate ‘happy birthday’ message at the end with two free chocolates was a lovely touch.
As the restaurant gradually filled in a measured safe way the atmosphere grew. The careful management of diner numbers was clear.
Temperature was a bit cold inside when the door was wedged open.
Our first experience of the Newport and we will definitely go back as a thoroughly enjoyable experience overall.

Another wonderful experience at The Newport Restaurant. Despite all of the changes due to the new government regulations, we really enjoyed my birthday celebration.
The whole afternoon was a delight, as always.
Thank you to Jamie and all of his Team for making our visit a special one.

Compared to similar restaurants operating in the same market The Newport offers outstanding value at £65 for an eight course tasting menu. The view of both Tay Bridges is spectacular , the service knowledgeable and efficient but pride of place goes to the quality and variety of all courses presented . We certainly wouldn’t hesitate to make a return trip

Food was excellent, any reservations about a tasting menu not being filling were blown away, to be honest I could have done with one or even two less courses. Although I did feel I'd over done it the night before still managed full breakfast and lunch next day, both were superb.
Accomodation very smart, lovely big shower with shower head at each end, pity I could only get a lukewarm trickle out of them, very disappointing.

The Staff in the restraint were excilent a lovely mixture of knowledge attentiveness while also feeling natural and relaxed, which is tricky to do. We had the taister menu which was great my parents had the matching wines which were delicious. I am pregnant and both the kitchen and the waiting staff were very accomodating. The proticalls for covid seemed robust but the manager who was separate to our waiting staff was a bit abrupt with us when we arrived and she didn't make us feel very welcome. Everything from that point on was fantastic and we'll definitely be back.

Birthday treat but we did find the wine flight @ £45 each a little steep. It would also have been nice to get a list of the wines served with each course. It was also difficult to hear the explanation of food & courses due to masks - but as masks are vital, perhaps a note on the menu would be good.

The food was superb.

We had an amazing evening. Food was absolutely delicious. Every plate was bursting with flavour. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We stayed overnight in the Nordic room which was so cosy and comfy. Would highly recommend. We will definitely be back. The weather was pretty poor so we definitely need to come back for some of those lovely sunset views.
Thank you 😊

Had a lovely long lunch - opted for the champagne menu. Great dishes to select from. All were delicious. Staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful especially with the gluten free options for one of our party. Restaurant was a bit quiet at first but that was probably because of background music being kept to a minimum to avoid loud talking. Would definitely recommend to friends and will definitely go back.
