About us


Thank you for taking the time to visit The Ridgeway Bar & Kitchen website. Please read on and learn a little about the ethos of our company and hopefully you will feel inspired to come and visit us.

Story Inns Ltd is all about locally sourced (where possible), meat, fish, game, booze, and produce. The  rivers, rolling countryside and coastline of Wales can provide a great bounty which we try to utilise as much as we can. We are delighted to introduce any gin or whisky lovers to our fine (and growing!) selection of these and they a selection from craft gin distilleries as well as fine single malts plus Irish Whiskey, Blends and Bourbons.


A young, experienced team with over 40 years of combined experience between them running one of the most exciting independent pubs in Newport – Irresistible!

Expect great brews on tap and a transparent philosophy of serving only the best produce. Both restaurant and pub, The Ridgeway Bar and Kitchen is AA Pub Guide and Alistair Sawdays Pubs & Inns Guide Recommended, oozing refreshing honesty, style and that rare four letter word – CARE.

A commitment to seasonality comes through in our dishes. Tender Welsh Rib of Celtic Pride Beef, Pembrokeshire / Carmarthenshire porkers from selected farms and Lamb from Carmarthenshire.

Everything our kitchen team produces gets the star treatment. From pub grub classics are given a delicious kick up the backside and the kitchen flex their creative muscles across modern, innovative menus. Look to the chalkboard for daily specials like hand dived scallops or lighly smoked fillet of welsh beef.

Menus are innovative with just a touch of alchemy. Pinned down to a description they’re Modern British. All are full of verve and punchy flavours with twists not always apparent until the flavours explode on your tongue. Value for money is constantly at the forefront of our minds.
