The whole experience at New Inn was marvellous. We arrived and were shown to our room which was spotless and smelt so fresh. At 6 we went to the bar and were shown to our table, the service being courteous and welcoming throughout. We ordered food, and were pleasantly surprised to see such a comprehensive vegetarian selection on the menu... More

We took mum for Christmas dinner to the New Inn although we have all been there several times before. It was the first year we hadn't cooked at Christmas and we loved it. The staff were second to none, attentive but not in your face, yet always accessible if you wanted more gravy etc. The choice was limited to Turkey,... More

What an excellent experience. We stayed for 3 nights and became friends with the owners of the New Inn. We had a wonderful breakfast in the morning and enjoyed Otter beer in the evening at the Pub along with playing darts and closing the Pub each night. Our son Matthew the Canadian still talks about the New Inn. When asked... More

Great food , especially breakfast, comfortable room, friendly staff, all set in a tranquil, beautiful hamstone village in Somerset. Convenient for local Cider Mill (30 metres ) and Devon, Dorset coastline. Not far to Glastonbury, Wells, Cheddar and Wookey Hole.

Four of us stayed there whilst going to a funeral. The hotel certainly brightened us up. We had a really good evening meal and our overnight stay was really good too with an excellent full english breakfast. The owners are very friendly too.

This Pub / Hotel is a bit off the beaten track, but is very friendly and the room (for the price) is superb. There are just four rooms, but they are quite spacious and there is ample tea and coffee in the room (not the usual 1 or 2 sachets) The bed is really comfortable and the breakfast was delicious!...
