We stopped in at The New Inn for lunch in the middle of a long walk with a large group of friends, after being refused food service at The Reformation. The pub could not have been more welcoming! The staff were lovely and so helpful. The food was amazing - especially the wild mushrooms on toast and the chicken parfait.... More

Stayed here in December when attending a party at the Reformation up the road. The staff were lovely and showed me to a very nice spacious room in a separate building to the main pub, which keeps noise down to a minimum. Bathroom and room are very good and bed comfy. Didn't get time to visit the pub for food... More

Found myself having to stay over in Reading but didn't want to stay in a chain hotel so did a search and found the New Inn fitted my requirements. The rooms are separate to the main building which is great because there is no noise from the pub also they have a separate entrance. The room I stayed in was... More

It was slightly difficult to get to but certainly worth the effort. Ignoring sat nav made the drive home very comfortable after a fantastic meal. There was plenty of choice on the menu, the food was beautifully cooked and the portions were huge, yet everyone cleared their plates. The service was slightly stretched but it didn't matter because they were... More

My wife and I visited this pub for lunch recently, the food was lovely and the staff very friendly. They have an open fire in the bar which helps create a cosy atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it.

What a great find this was. It is tucked away a bit but well worth the effort. We went on a weekday lunch and it was pretty full so this is always a good sign. The setting is old worldly pub with linen napkins on plain wooden tables. The menu is well thought out and the portions are probably too... More

We went to the New Inn on a Groupon voucher and were a bit dubious. But how wrong one can be. The food was fantastic, great choice of real ales and wines and service was impeccable. The owner Dora the waitress Nicky were both very friendly and welcoming. Atmosphere is great and we sat right next to an open fire.... More

We went as a group of 11 on Friday 20th November. We had purchased a few Groupon vouchers which offered a reduced price meal and a glass of wine. When we arrived the Restaurant and Pub were really busy, which is always a good sign. We had been allocated a table in a small alcove with a lovely open fire... More

A lovely meal with great service. Will definitely return. Very relaxed comfortable atmosphere, food was served quickly and was extremely tastey, also good value for money. Would recommend the chicken dish.

Last went to the New Inn in 2012 on a Groupon and I think the management had just changed at that time. Food good then but excellent now. Small portions have gone and service excellent. A bit out of the way but well wort a visit.
