Decided to have our lunch here as we were given a voucher with our admission ticket to Clovelly. Very basic surroundings and fairly ordinary lunch. For such a pretty village with thousands of visitors every year, it seem amazing to me that the real potential of this inn is not being reached.

Our party of 4 stayed one night. Negatives (1) lady at reception was polite and accommodating but rather cold and aloof. Never had a smile, hello or any kind of greeting forthcoming from her. We always greeted her first, and she was not at all busy, no one else around. (2) restaurant closed at 7pm, too early (3) although given... More

Clovelly is a lovely peaceful village with amazing views of the harbour and coastline. We arrived late at night and ventured down the cobbles towards the New Inn. We were welcomed by Andy who was working the bar and by Tom, a local resident who was only too happy to tell us about the village - the perfect welcoming commitee!... More

Booked 1 night for Valentines. A little sceptical because of the poor reviews recently. However, from the moment we arrived, were made to feel very welcome, the pub area was warm and cosy, and a special Valentine's menu was shown to us for that night. The selection on the menu was excellent and reasonably priced, it was hard to choose.... More

We stayed here for a night for my birthday in October 2014. It was cheap to stay here and it was great to be in the village. The room we had was in the pub building with a large comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and a balcony. The room was clean and pleasant but not big. The balcony was an added... More

Recently had lunch here. It was very quiet with just a couple of other people who were not eating. Felt a pint of coke for our driver at £2.90 was a little excessive. We ate from the specials board having been given a 10% of voucher at the visitors centre when we paid our admittance fee. My husband left some... More

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
