The restaurant is tucked away upstairs, we arrived in the evening and all we could see was the glow of the candle lamps warming the tables, through the window. The collection of artifacts, connects you straight to the sea, with ropes and nets clinging warmly to the oak aged beams create an ambiance of a sea farers tale, whether that... More

Visited Lunchtime Sat 4th March. I found the Landlord friendly and helpful and it had a good range of beers. There is also a Cafe attached to the Pub.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!!! I visited this place recently as our family (8 of us) had intended to have lunch in the pub. Firstly they attempt to charge you to park in their car park but the parking meter wasn't working - it swallowed my coins but didn't issue me with a ticket to display in my car! Another potential...

We have been walking the coast path in South Wales and the eating facilities are few and far between. Literally nothing between Mermaid Quay and The Lighthouse Inn in St Brides Wentlooge -10 miles. So being served the heartiest baked potato ever with coleslaw was the best !

My partner and I had heard about the restaurant and the novelty of cooking your steak on a hot stone and wanted to try it before taking friends who are due to visit Newport soon rather than taking them to one of our regular places. I had been told that if you are using the pub then it doesn't cost... More

We have been to The Light House a few times but had never had an evening meal in the restaurant. We had heard it was fantastic so wanted to try it. The down stairs isn't modern but it's clean. The staff are so friendly and so helpful. We booked on the day and arrived for a pre-meal drink. We were... More

Well what a gem, the steaks are absolutely amazing. Better than any steak I've had in Cardiff. Lovely family run place, well priced, lovely atmosphere, Portions very big and delicious. You cook the Steak yourself on a hot stone with plenty of veg and most scrumptious home made chips/wedges. We went on a Friday night and it was one of... More

Confused by the photos that must be the upstairs which I've never seen as a family we've only done Sunday lunches at the venue which is served on the ground floor. Food is good, generous portions and imaginative deserts. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Venue is rough around the edges. Great dog walking along the coast but dogs only allowed... More

This restaurant is strictly adult only because of the hot rock system.
