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

Starting on Wednesday 19 October 2022, in The John Wallace Linton. Six Festival Ales on, drank four. Friday 21 October 2022 in The Malcolm Uphill.  All the Festival Ales either on or have been drunk. Update on why the iPad Pro’s front camera is still on the portrait side. Meanwhile, on Saturday, it’s still going strong at The John Wallace Linton, In Newport. A touch of Tiny Rebel Cask from the Newport Bar to finish.
