Winchelsea's a charming place in general, and the New Inn complements it perfectly. We arrived unannounced on a Bank Holiday Monday in a party of 4 adults and 4 children, and found plenty of space in the lovely 'secret garden'. The quality of the food was fine - we particularly enjoyed the burger and fish and chips. Staff were helpful... More

Just spent a lovely afternoon in the secret garden at the New Inn eating a fabulous Sunday lunch. Great food, lovely surroundings and friendly staff. Looking forward to a return visit soon and the chance to stay over and enjoy the full B&B experience.

I tried to track down your website to get in touch but could not so resorted to trip advisor. As someone who recently moved into the town I love the New Inn, the decor, the friendly staff, the gorgeous log fire, but wish it was just that little bit better. We visit every Friday and most Saturdays and I constantly... More

Stayed for one night in their Grand Double in Nov 2013. Have dined at this inn many times and adore the food, especially their New Inn burger (see my other reviews), but got the chance to stay here too. Room was £85 without breakfast which was nice they offered an option to have breakfast added or not as I never... More

We went to Winchelsea as I had been once before in the 1970s only to find that it hadn't changed at all - still very tranquil village. After stroll round looking at village, had mid morning coffee at New Inn - friendly staff. Had a look at menu and found lots to choose from. In all we went to eat... More

Lovely spot full of history, the bar staff were very pleasant but unfortunately the roast dinner was very poor. It had obviously been re-heated at least once, and gave up half way through eating it. There was no management present who I could complain to so had to settle for a discount which wasn't ideal , as it would have... More

lazy day without the kids, a treat, Sunday lunch was the thing. The New Inn being local and known to us as cosy, seemed obvious, it all started well, red wine and a starter but when the roast dinners arrived we were very disappointed. I could go into detail but bad is bad and at £10 a pop complaints should... More

This place was great. The hotel itself is very old, I would imagine 200 years plus but I stand to be corrected. We had a room upstairs, you need to duck your head when walking up the stairs as the ceiling is very low. The room itself was comfortable but a bit small. The bar and restaurant were very good...

It was a cold & raining Saturday night. The pub was cosy and not heaving with people, with some character and also nice armchairs by the fire to sit in after food. We ordered scallops with garlic & white wine sauce and the steak with chips. They were cooked well, the steak medium rare as we like it with an... More
