We have been visiting Blowing Rock for a number of years now and have never had a bad visit, but our recent trip was by far the best. The reason why was The New Public House. Never before have I been made to feel more at home by a business. Jackie, the manager, runs a great operation. Every employee we... More

Blowing Rock NC is becoming an exemplary culinary destination! The New Public House & Hotel is by far no exception. "Chic" applies to the beautiful AND designer quality interior. Wow...great concept for this mountain getaway! The menu is no less dominated by "chic cuisine". Try the bone-in pork loin chop. Served alongside of baby carrots and sweet baby turnips that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our night at The Public House and Blowing Rock. The accommodations were nice, comfortable, and clean. The staff was very friendly. We ate up at their sister restaurant at Gideon Ridge and would recommend this restaurant as well. We would certainly return to The Public House!!

The New Public House and Hotel is simply the best of many great venues to both dine and stay in Blowing Rock. The seven rooms are been completely renovated and furnished with very rustic, functional furniture and mountain-themed décor. Excellent. The bathrooms have high quality and fashionable sinks, tubs and showers plus even the hardware is notable. My friend and... More

We had an excellent dinner here during a trip to Blowing Rock last February. When we decided to visit Blowing Rock again this January we were so pleased that we could get a room here. Everything about this place is wonderful. We stayed in Room 7 which is like a little cabin or cottage - absolutely perfect. We had breakfast... More

I tag along with my girlfriend from time to time when she travels to Blowing Rock for business. We have stayed at The New Public House several times and the service and accommodations have been excellent EVERY time. The housekeeping, bar, and restaurant staff are very service oriented and go out of their way to make sure all things are... More

From the appetizer to the main course, to the desserts, this was easily the best meal I have had at a restaurant in a long time! Everything was delicious, and there are lots of gluten free options, even a gluten free dessert! We will certainly be back.

We stayed for an overnighter and it was great - room 2 is lovely, with sunshine greeting us in the morning. We enjoyed eating in the bar area, by the fireplace. The food was good, we especially enjoyed the brussels sprouts salad, and the bread pudding was delicious.

Stayed here first 45 years ago when was the Sunshine Inn, then a couple years back when was Crippens. Really was impressed with the new... More

My husband and I spent a weekend at The New Public House in October and couldn't have had a better time! We parked our car and didn't move it again until we left town! Everything you could want or need is in walking distance! We had fabulous weather and enjoyed time relaxing on the front porch. The included breakfast is... More
