We stayed on Tresco as guests of friends who have abtimshare on the island.This was our first visit although it is clear that many have visited many times. The new inn is one of 3options on the island, all owned by the same company. It's a pub and a good one. A good selection of beers and a varied,if slightly... More

We stopped for dinner bed and breakfast and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious. I had sea trout and plaice fishcake followed by... More

We stayed at the New Inn just after the Gig Racing had taken place, the weather was windy, wet and foggy, but the plane managed to get us to St Mary's. When you book any accommodation on Tresco, the Tresco organisation takes care of your travel arrangement and your luggage. We travelled to Tresco on the ferry quite a rocky... More

We popped in for a refreshing drink, during our trip to Tresco. It was a Thursday lunchtime and I had expected it to be much busier than it was. The drinks were a bit pricey, even for the Scillies and I thought the interior a bit dark. We drank in the garden area, which I would imagine would soon get... More

Dear Cotonboy I am very sorry that you found our pricing expensive. I know that on the draught side I have actually come down to match some pubs on the island of St Mary's. I do have to say I don't have this comment about pricing on drinks very often since I dropped them on my arrival last September. I... More

The staff make Tresco, especially the new inn. Absolutely everything, apart from the climate and the vegetation on this island is about the people who service the visitors to the island . They are all young energetic and enthusiastic but may be working within parameters that have become tired with time. Hospitality, welcome and client attention are all first class,... More

Dear jempsUK Thank you for your review.

I agree with your comments on departure that more attention to details need to be implemented, and a little encouragement... More

We haven't stayed at the New Inn for very many years and wondered how it would have changed and whether it would be as good. We needn't have worried. One key change is that we had a really comfortable bed, which I rarely find in hotels. Our room was lovely and so quiet. The bathroom was rather cosy, but it... More

We had a very nice room, though it was the cheapest category. Good service, luggage was trasferred from the quay to the hotel and back. My friend had twisted her ankle, so they arranged a walking stick (special thanks to Karen from the island office). Weather was brilliant, so we had meals on the terrace. Food was good but not...

Set ideally on the lovely island of Tresco close to the sea, we loved the New Inn. Staff were really helpful and friendly, the transfers to and from the ferry handled so efficiently for instance. Lovely fresh food, comfortable room. All good!

Stayed over the World Gig Racing weekend and have nothing but good things to say about the New Inn. Stylish, comfortable rooms with thoughtful touches such as real coffee, fine food and drinks in the bar and pleasant communal lounge areas. It is, however, the people who really make it - locals very friendly and staff at the Inn who... More

We wondered how things might have changed since the arrival of the new manager but we needn't have worried. The atmosphere at the pub hadn't changed and if anything the food menu was even better. Please keep the mix of Pub food and slightly more exotic dishes. Crab claws were a nice addition and 3 of our friends said the... More
