The address used to 5 Baneswell Road before it was renumbered and renamed. The old photo shows the pub was owned by George’s Brewery of Bristol, who were taken over by Courage, Barclay & Co in 1961. The Lamb has been owned by a pub company for many years, the freehold has recently been bought and the new owners are planning on spending a lot of money on the place, as well as putting real ale on for the first time in nearly 20 years!
Good to see a Newport pub open and having real ale back in the place, was Tiny Rebel on my last visit! Also good to see the glazed tiled frontage survive when other Newport pubs have lost it - Church House in Pill springs to mind.
