Where to eat
Eating out in and around Newport
Newport and the surrounding area boasts quality restaurants and a wide variety of cuisines, including some nationally recognised award-winning venues.
Wales has embraced the slow food, local ingredients ethos, and made use of the fantastic variety of top quality, fresh, local produce, seafood and meat which is available on our doorstep.
The True Taste of Wales awards have served to highlight the quality of ingredients and prepared food in the region, and visitors to the area can expect a warm Welsh welcome.
Newport Food Festival
Newport joined the Wales foodie calendar in 2011 with its first ever Food Festival, and the event has grown each year.
The 2013 Food Festival took place on October 5 with demonstrations and masterclasses from some of the UK’s top chefs and over 70 stalls.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme
Newport City Council has adopted the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme to help consumers.
Food outlets are inspected by Environmental Health Officers to check hygiene standards which are rated on a scale from 0 (urgent improvement necessary) to 5 (very good) following an unannounced inspection.
View food premises ratings (opens new website) and search by post code e.g. NP20, the word “Newport” (your search will pull through businesses in other Newports!) or by using the map.
