George in Chepstow or the Goscombe in Cardiff, places that I have always found to be clean and serve good beer. Still it's a loss to Newport as the pub was useful as a daycare centre for the mentally ill, they will have to return to Chaverspoons now.
The Morning Advertiser has details on the Barrucuda restructuring and its new name, the Bramwell Pub Company.
The pub was called the Page as the building was not originally a pub but the offices of the South Wales Argus, before they moved to Maesglas in the 1970s. The rear of the building is under separate ownership and was the printing works for the newspaper, in the mid-1990s this became home to a brewery as Bristol-based Ross brothers turned into into the Newport Brewhouse, but that a story for another post!
