New owners, Will and Alexia Green of the Rogue Fox Coffee Shop, took over Meat Bar & Grill six months ago with the intention of keeping this great independent brand alive.

Not to compete with themselves, Meat opens when the Rogue Fox closes, with currently operating from 5:30pm until 10pm Thursday to Saturday, whilst opening for breakfast and lunch on a Saturday from 10am to 1pm.

“We didn’t want to see the place close, so jumped at the chance when the previous owners decided it was time to go,” Alexia told Voice.

“There’s a great bunch of independents where we are located, and we want to see them continue to thrive.”

Since taking ownership, the couple’s passion for Meat to succeed has led them to jump six places on Trip Advisor, going from #15 to #9 (currently ranked at the time of print) out of 438 restaurants in Newport.

“Obviously when maintaining a brand, you need to keep things the same, but we’ve also put our own personal stamp on the business, simply by offering new burger combinations as well as different monthly specials,” added Will.

“At the end of the day, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it! Which is one of the reasons why we took it on, Meat is such a great venue and it would’ve been sorely missed if it had closed.”

To celebrate Meats recent success, Will and Alexia are giving away free nachos to any couple who quotes ‘Voice Loves Meat’ when booking a table for Valentine’s Day. Call now to secure a table for Friday, February 14.
