About The Aston Taphouse

Previously The Last Inn, The Aston Taphouse is a family-run bar and restaurant with a proud focus on fresh, locally-sourced food. It’s a cosy, relaxed place just outside of central Newport on Church Aston’s Wellington Road, and even more welcoming than the well-stocked bar with over 13 craft ales, is the menu that’s packed with British pub classics. Whether for a light bite or a full and hearty meal, be assured of a quality food offering that changes according to season. With outdoor seating as well, The Aston Taphouse is everything a British pub should be and more. Reserve a table now.

More about The Aston Taphouse, Newport

The Aston Taphouse prides itself on building close relationships with local farmers to as good as guarantee that your food is almost alive with freshness when it arrives at your table. It’s a whole different ballgame when restaurant food is genuinely homemade, and here on Wellington Road you can taste the difference with every bite – it’s clear the local ingredients used here are given the utmost respect they deserve. So what can you expect exactly? Well, as we said, menus at this Newport gem change with the seasons, but traditionally British is always the name of the game.

Classics are present – gammon, eggs and pineapple; haddock and chips; steak & ale pie – but that goes without saying. Signature dishes on The Aston Taphouse dinner menu, meanwhile, include braised pork belly with black pudding, mustard mash, braised red cabbage and a cider & honey sauce, as well as pan-fried sea bass with beetroot salsa, roasted fennel and parmesan salad. As you can probably tell, these are some of the best and most honest flavours you’ll find anywhere in Church Aston or, indeed, Newport. You’ll probably also be unsurprised to hear The Aston Taphouse is very popular, so an advance reservation is key.

Great Sunday lunch, lovely tasty home cooked food. I had a mountain of roast beef with a giant Yorkshire pudding on the top. Delicious .
