The Bargemans Rest is a large former Ringwood pub (now taken over by Marstons) with a fairly peaceful setting next to the River Medina with plenty of boats, ducks and swans. There is an outdoor seating area where you can take it all in. Inside, there is plenty of room for diners. I struggled to locate the gents at first. Ales were Ringwood Forty Niner, Best & Showman's Tipple, Goddards Fuggle Dee-Dum, Thwaites Lancaster Bomber, Marstons Old Empire & Brakspear Bitter. We moved on from here to the William Coppin (poor branch of Wetherspoons) and the highlight of our trip, the Newport Ale House). Neither are listed on here. I will request the latter to be added.

We go to the Bargemans Rest quite frequently as it's very convenient if you arrive in Newport by boat. The food is good, not brilliant, but better than average for the Island. The beer varies considerably in quality, but they're happy to let you taste them first so you should find one that's to your liking. Gets very busy if you want to sit outside, and the tables and chairs outside are horrible plastic things which frankly need replacing with more stable and better quality units. Overall, it's a nice pub.

Ales in very decent condition, only handicapped by usual IOW problem of few micro brewery offerings from across the water. Food was quite superb, both quality and quantity.

Enormous portions of food, it seemed to be pretty popular!

My parents tried this pub a couple of times while on Holiday in June 2011. I can't advise on the drink, but the food was very plentiful, and they both came out of there rather stuffed. The staff were also very friendly, and helpful.
