The Newington is tucked away in Stanmore, on a street I've never even been down, though I suppose this actually reflects on me more than it does on the actual location. We rocked up at about 6.30ish and took a look around - it's OK, big food area, small bar (not neccesarily what we were after), a couple of pool tables, pinball and video Jukebox. It's very kid-tolerant, or was while we were there, with more than one family group in for a meal with the kids in tow.
It's not an incredible stand-out venue, but if you live not too far away it's probably a decent place to make your local, and the big bottle-o is an added bonus if you're nearby. We intend to check it out on a night when there ISN'T Karaoke, too, by the way!
