New sports bar to open at Newport’s Station Quarter

Aug 4, 2023

A brand new sports bar offering big screens, pool tables, dart boards and more is set to open at our Station Quarter development in Newport.

‘Kings Sports Bar’ will feature 20 large LED TVs as well as a ‘king’ size projector screen showing all the big sporting matches and seating area for 50+ people, as well as offering customers a range of good value food and drinks, and other entertainment.

Sports enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice among the 12 world championship standard English 8-ball tables, two elite standard American pool tables, elite standard snooker table, four top-of-the-range darts cubicles, custom-made golf connect four, poker tables, quiz machines and jukebox.

Kings Sports Bar will also feature a weekly kids club providing developmental coaching for young children, as well as multiple pool leagues for all ages and abilities.

Owner of the venue, Michael Beckett, who has previous experience of managing another successful sports bar in the city, is currently fitting out the premises, having agreed a 15-year lease.

Commenting on his new venture, Michael said:

“Kings Sports Bar has been in the works for a while now and, after a tough few years with multiple setbacks in getting it up and running, I’m over the moon that we have landed in Station Quarter.


“The confidence that our landlord, Scarborough Development Group, has in our businesses is part of the reason why we have chosen such a big site in an up-and-coming location and we’re confident it’s the perfect spot for us to become the premier sporting venue in Newport.”

Kings Sports Bar compliments Station Quarter’s expanding leisure and entertainment offer, which includes Newport Live gym, J D Wetherspoon, Vibez nightclub and Ladbrokes.

Jack Abou-Jaoude, Senior Development Manager at Scarborough Group, commented:

“We’re delighted to welcome Kings Sports Bar to Station Quarter. It’s been a difficult few years for the retail and leisure industry but we’re starting to see a marked increase in activity, particularly among wet leisure operators, and we’re confident that they’ll quickly become a popular addition to the existing tenant mix.

“With all remaining units now under offer, we’re looking forward to Station Quarter becoming the vibrant retail and leisure destination we always envisaged it would be.”

Kings Sports Bar will launch to the public in the autumn and be open from 10am until 11pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, and 10am until 12am (midnight) Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For more details visit
