An iconic institution in Newport, Clarke Cooke House is your spot for brunch, dinner, drinks, and dancing. I like to grab a seat at the small bar in the dining room or on one of the couches by the fireplace before heading downstairs to dance.

stay

Newport has a wide range of hotels that are close to Thames and the sights. These are a few that I recommend, but definitely check out Airbnb as well. Especially if you’re in town for week or more.
