The building is a Grade 2 listed and has previously traded as a hairdresser, coffin storage for an undertaker, a Posting House and stables for a coaching inn.
It is the Island’s smallest pub, no bigger than a front room, recalling the days when there were several such establishments in Newport (though it’s unlikely its predecessors sported flock wallpaper). This is a hugely popular pub with all generations, where conversation comes easy - it can get very crowded and noisy sometimes! Often live music including Sunday afternoons. Beer choice always interesting & varied, including 3 constantly changing sk ales served by gravity. No meals, but snacks are high quality locally sourced pub pies, rolls and sandwiches. There is a similar, former sister pub, in Cowes.
