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.

It has been some time since I have visited the New Inn and had positive experiences on each of the previous occasions. With family visiting from Cumbria we decided to take them out to a good Somerset village pub and this one sprung to mind as pretty much guaranteed to provide for a pleasant evening. For the most part they... More

We have stayed here several times while visiting family and love it! A warm welcome, a comfortable bed (whichever room we are in) and great pub food. What more can you want? Well today we found out! We mentioned at breakfast time that a mirror near the hairdryer point could be useful and by 6.45pm, Richard was seen heading towards... More

We met with friends in this delightful pub, set in a picturesque village. There is a good menu of ‘pub grub’, with a few specials – prices are very reasonable. Food is cooked to order and well worth waiting for. Everyone enjoyed their generous helpings – no room for puddings! The staff were efficient and attentive. This was one of... More
