"A pub/restaurant on the quayside at Newport with a converted sail loft used as a private function room"
"The Bargemans Rest is a good little venue for a party - the only downside is that it uses a sound limiter which seriously affects how loud your band or DJ can play, which could in turn affect guests' expectations. There are lots of steps to reach this first floor room. Apart from that it has its own dance floor area, plenty of seating and its own bar area."

|29/02/2016||The Sail Loft||First|
This review was provided by Central Discos
Permanent wooden dancefloor
No useable in-house lighting effects
No air conditioning
No stage area
SOUND LIMITER - Moderately sensitive
No effective blackout
PARKING: Parking can be problematic as theres precious little available at the venue. The nearest public parking is a few hundred metres the wrong way down a one-way system.
ACCESS: Access via a set of metal fire escape stairs which are VERY slippery when wet or icy
FACILITIES: Small carpeted area at one end of the dancefloor with height limited by hanging room lights. The room in which you set up is adjacent to the restaurant/bar area and audio projection can be an issue - too loud at one end and too quiet at the other.
STAFF: Nice staff
POWER PROVISION: One twin 13A RCD-protected socket controlled by sound limited to rear of setup area.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: "Sound limiter isnt overly sensitive but no need for subs here!"
