What a gem :-) They went out of their way to accommodate us and our dogs. They were very busy and could have easily turned us away but went the extra mile which was most appreciated especially as the food was fantastic. If service is your thing then The Canteen scores 10/10.

We were just passing and decided to eat here as it looked reasonable cost. As no internet signal, we didn’t know this restaurant has such great reviews. So we were very happy to discover such a great place. The vegetarian pizza and coleslaw we shared was perfect, really lovely. The staff were also very friendly. It was obvious this was a very popular place as they were getting a lot of phone orders. Definitely recommend this place.

It's super accommodating, considering we didn't reserve our first visit. The pizza, service and value for money were so good we reserved later in the week for a larger group and The Canteen/staff didn't disappoint, it's a no-brainer we'll be back next year while visiting the local area on holiday.

We didn't book a table but we were able to get seated inside although we were told the table was booked for a bit later. We had plenty of time to order pizzas and drinks and delicious affogato without feeling pressured to eat and vacate our seats quickly. The pizzas are delicious, all made to order and you can see them being baked from your table. The staff are friendly and accommodating, I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you fancy a pizza whilst in Newport!

Had a really decent pair of pizzas from here. Took them away, picking them up from the window at exactly the time they said they’d be ready. The toppings were put on generously, were fresh and mostly tasty. Their vegan cheese wasn’t substantive, becoming an almost liquid on top of the pizza. It wasn’t cloying like some vegan cheeses but it was insipid and not quite solid enough. Not off putting, but notable. My partner loved their vegetarian pizza with dairy cheese, no notes. We also had a side of chips which were great.

Times are hard but this gem of a place continues to provide us visitors with top quality pizzas and service. Newport is busy and with the social distancing in place it can be a bit of a challenge to find anywhere to get food in the evening. They've nailed the whole covid restrictions with an efficient ordering and pick up system. Just take your umbrella in case you have to wait (we didn't!) as you are on the street outside. The pizzas and sides are delicious. The onion rings were the best we've ever had! Thanks guys and really well done!

We always visit The Canteen when we are down in the area, it's always been amazing a d very chilled. Sadly this visit was far from that. We entered and there was a table of 6 having a birthday meal, and a table of 2. We sat down at a table for 4, the table in the window we usually sit at, had 'reserved' on it, but no-one came to sit there before closing !We ordered our drinks and food. There was a wait of about 15mins for our starter of just one plate of dough balls. Whilst eating these, a gentleman came in an ordered 2 pizzas to take away. He then left the restaurant.Our starter plate was cleared away. Then a couple came in and sat on a table next to us and they ordered food.We then waited near 30mins to get our pizzas. I went to the desk to enquire where our food was, as it was such a long wait since our starters, and the chap who had come in and ordered a 'take away, had come back in and got his pizzas, even though he ordered a good 15mins after us.We were told there was a delay on our pizzas as they had to do the take away order.To say I was furious was an understatement, I had to walk away from the desk !Eventually our pizzas arrived, as did the pizzas for the couple say next to us, who had come in, sat down and ordered at least 20mins after we'd ordered.I was so cross that the chef/staff put the take away order in before us, which left us sitting twiddling our thumbs for nearly half and hour between starter and main, especially as there were only 2 other tables with people on, and we had two young children with us.At no point did any staff come over and explain that our food would be delayed, due to them having to put the take away order through.To add insult to injury, I'd ordered a make your own with serano ham, mozzarella, red onion and rocket. The overriding taste was that of onion, as that was the main ingredient on the pizza, piled up in places. There was hardly and serano ham or mozzarella.I wanted to go up and complain, but after such a long wait, I was too cross and felt I would really lose my rag with them, which I really didn't want to happen in front of my children.We were left really disappointed, especially as we really look forward to our visits there as it is usually superb.Not really sure what else to add.It was all the same staff as other times we have beenNot sure if the chap came in the order the takeaway was a local and as such got preference over us, who knows?All I know is that 30mins between a dough balls starter and your main meal pizza is far too long and unacceptable, and one where I really shouldn't have to go and ask where our food is.

We called in for lunch when we happened to be in Newport and were made very welcome; so was our dog, who was immediately offered a bowl of water. We could see the pizzas being made, and very good they were. My partner had a Strumble Head pizza, with smoked mackerel, anchovies and capers and I had a vegan pizza with my own selection of toppings, which we both thought were good value. My partner enjoyed a couple of bottles of local Bluestone Brewery Bedrock Blonde.

I really would like to say bravo to the pizza man , because the pizza is excellent! It's like being back in Italy when you are enjoying eating this pizza. For whom doesn't want to order a pizza there is enough choice too. About the dessert I can suggest the chocolate brownie,who is really tasty !! The last thing that I would like to say is that :for any Italian who is visiting Pembrokeshire and Newport, you must here also for the good coffee at the end!
