This pub is somewhat out of the way and so we needed the sat nav to locate it. Nevertheless, the Accommodation and the food all offered very good value for money. Our bedroom was a bit spartan and the hairdrier was missing, but we had a peaceful night in a very comfortable bed. We were staying on Monday night and... More

Four of us decided to venture out of our village and visit the nearby village of Dowlish Wake for an evening at The New Inn. The Staff were very good and attentive. The menu was very good with several 'Specials' as well. We ordered our food which came quite quickly. The main course was well presented and was pleasant eating... More

Having previously stayed at the new inn and been very impressed with the room and the breakfast we decided to book three rooms for family members who were travelling long distances. Everyone who stayed was delighted with the accommodation ...absolutely first... More

I would like to give this a 'Good' rating but there isn't one, Average then straight to Very Good in the scale. I have chosen the higher rating as the rooms looked lovely, although I did not stay the night. Moved to the area 6 months ago and whilst out on the ramble one day and I came across the... More

It not that easy to please a 4 year old.... The food arrived promptly. The food selection was good. The food was very tasty. I ordered a pork stack special which... More

Although we live locally in South Somerset, my wife and I decided we would like to take time out from our busy lives to spend some quality time enjoying a meal and staying overnight. Although Dowlish Wake is located near Crewkerne on the A30 and Ilminster on the A303, it is a beautiful peaceful village into which the New Inn... More

We had an excellent selection of meals from Steak, Suet Pudding,Pork Stack,Scampi I would recommend them all. We have eaten here before in 2014 and so glad we came back again. A really nice friendly atmosphere makes it a great place too meet and eat. A big thanks to Ben for his service.
