Mist, Frost and The Little Taphouse

30/11/2022 Leave a comment

A frosty, misty Tuesday just before December. The Little Taproom was already open when I arrived in Newport. This makes sense as it is also a coffee room. Apparently, it’s from the same people as St Cannas, in Cardiff and a little bird (Internet) tells me it’s Fine Ales from 11:00.

However, it’s on to The John Wallace Linton as their bar open at 08:00. A choice of Christmas or World Cup Ales greet me. Christmas wins with The Christmas in a Glass, Plum Pudding from JW Lees.

Lots of Chips from The Harbour Fish Bar, still in the mist. Then onto The Little Taphouse. Lots of Fine Ales but initial WiFi issues. However, the fine art of unplugging it and then plugging it in again fixed that. Impressions, small, friendly, good opening hours, cask and keg ales with a good selection of cans and bottles. Would be better if they had sandwiches or baguettes. Probably good back on Saturday.

To finish off, The Malcolm Uphill on Wednesday. Had another Luxury, Festive Mince Pie.

And This is Tiny Rebel’s Newport Bar

Not Trusting The App

17/10/2021 Leave a comment

A Saturday Emergency Beano. An RTA on Newport Road. The bus before mine I saw tacking the Graig-y-Rhacca route. The Stagecoach App said everything was fine. I decided to wait at the bus stop on the Graig-y-Rhacca route. I was right. And while we are at it, what is it with PIA and the Cloud’s captive portal under iOS? Still it didn’t rain. Tiny Rebel Newport, not quite back to normal. I miss the fridge full of Guest Fine Ales. And it was the 50A back home.

I’ll Take The Long Way There

The 50A due to Costa not opening until 08:00. Confused Autumnal weather with no Hazy Jane shortage in The Larry. Old School but fast WiFi and Cask Ale in the Pen & Wig. And when a Cask is fresh on and the Ale is Fine, well that’s the Way Forward. A large tray od Chips from nowhere near the Sea and then on to Tiny Rebel. Runners going from the Bar to the Brewery. Cask, Keg and a Can whilst going very old school with Tiki Bar TV. A sunny end to the day.

Embrace The Opaque

Commercial Street Newport Costa Coffee still not open at 07:00, despite what the Costa Website says. However the Costa at the station opens at 06:00 and the lady behind the counter was excellent. Started in The John Wallace Linton, where the Hazy Jane (my Breakfast Beer of choice) was in plentiful supply.

The Pen And Wig (Newport – Dog Friendly) for 10:02. The joy of it being back to the way it was pre Rhona, Cask and Citra to boot.

Chip shops can be tricky on a Monday, so it was Plan B and 50p more to boot. However a good sized portion and just around the corner from Tiny Rebel.

Speaking of which. In the corner by the power and now next to the organic back wall. Nothing better than slowly drinking the afternoon away. Solid Monday.
