Former dockworker alehouse turned boutique hotel in Newport for sale as ‘going concern’


A boutique hotel and restaurant that started life in the 19th century and became a favourite alehouse for the workers on Newport’s Alexander Dock, has gone on the market.

The Waterloo Hotel & Bistro was originally built in 1870 but the Grade-II listed building has been run as a boutique hotel and restaurant by restaurateur Bob Evans for the last 14 years, who has now decided to retire.

The property is on the market with Christie + Co as a going concern with an asking price of £795k.

Evans, who previously ran the The Village Green in Trelleck and Bob’s in Monmouth, saved the building from falling to rack and ruin when he bought it almost 15 years ago.

He then invested more than £1m into restoring the site.

Senior business agent Corrina Jones said: “This is a great opportunity for either a first-time buyer or experienced operator to acquire this beautiful period public house in Newport.

“We have had several enquiries already, and with the current activity in the market I do not think that this opportunity will be available for long.

“This is definitely a property that needs to be visited to be fully appreciated.”
