We stayed in in the annex rooms of the New Inn. The room was basic, no TV or ceiling light and although the bed was comfortable it did not have a headboard! The room was clean and tidy and towels were plentiful. We had an en-suite with a decent shower. The room was warm enough with the heat coming from... More

Older pub and very dated. We stayed in room in the pub. Very small and bed not very comfortable. Food was OK and staff friendly and helpful. Staying up the hill at the New Inn you get a far better view than down at the Red Lion at the waterfront. Beautiful town to visit. Access to New Inn by foot... More

Stayed here for a night whilst walking the south west coast path. We were in the rooms across from the Inn, which were clean and practical and whilst not on suite the shared bathroom had recently been redone with a good power shower. The price for the room was appropriate for the style. The breakfast was good, but the evening... More

In such a location you'd expect this to be a thriving , friendly pub. The beers are good but at 8 on a Thursday it was all but deserted and not the most welcoming . Have a beer and head on down to the Red Lion at the harbourside

Just visited the New Inn for a beer at lunchtime when on the coastal footpath. Had a pint of old Appledore. Nectar, just the crisp hoppy style of beer I like, perfectly kept. Highly recommended. Nice comfy bar to sit in as well. The scones on the next table also looked good. My wife had a Cappuccino which she said... More

There are two parts to the New Inn - Rooms 5 and 6 are the best with balconies/views etc. Across the street is further accommodation largely without ensuite facilities. Make sure you know which you are booking! In this respect the services are fine with clean rooms/linen and so on. Breakfast is a fairly average affair with waiter service. Evening... More

Travelling around the UK can be a delight but every so often we are reminded how poor it used to be. The New Inn at Clovelly squanders a great location by being in a 1970's time warp. The bar is dirty and characterless. The evening food menu a dismally short list of warm ups with chips. The residents lounge drab... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the New Inn, Clovelly and so glad we did. It was superb. Beryl the Manageress and her staff could not do enough to make us so welcome. The food was brilliant, so much of it and prepared to a very high standard. The chicken wrap was absolutely delicious. The breakfast was the best we... More

Went to the New Inn Clovelly for a short break , Our room was superb we had a balcony where we sat outside and took cream tea whilst watching the world go by. Food in the bar was plentiful , hot where it needed to be and a menu that catered for all tastes, Would particularly recommend the chicken wrap... More
