Carpenter's Arms, Newport

Always good to see a pub reopen after an extended period of closure and the Carpenter's Arms in Newport is a welcome change to the usual shit holes that masquerade as City Centre pubs in Newport. Run by the JW Bassett Pub Company, who also run the Queens Vaults in Cardiff and the Golden Egg in Kilburn, yes a Welsh pub in Kilburn, the Carpenters offers 3 real ales, all from the Felinfoel Brewery. The first outlet for Felinfoel Brewery in Newport for, well, apart from the odd appearance as a guest beer, ever? Three real ales are on tap, Double Dragon 4.2% and two house beers, also brewed by Felinfoel: Liquid Metal 4.3% and Carpenters 1403 at 3.9%. All at £1.89 with the 1403 £1.49/pint until 1700hrs! Good value menu available until 2100hrs. For those keg tickers out there Thatchers Gold is available alongside Old Hand 4.1% lager and Black Arts 4% Stout. Quite a good pint as well, good jukebox, with an emphasis on rock music. Can see myself using this pub more often! A Felinfoel outlet in Newport!
