Good classic pub grub. Dogs welcomed in bar and a couple of real ales on the pull and a nice open fire.

We visited on a wet evening and were greeted by a roaring log fire and very friendly staff. Very good value for money.

We were on holiday in the area for our Birthdays, which happen to be on the same day so we booked a table at this lovely pub as it is within walking distance and has a very nice ambiance about it. Our meal was superb, plentiful and the service by Sarah was very attentive. We had a lovely evening in... More

Staying at the forest holiday lodges the New inn is a five minute drive. Warm welcome and cosy log fire. Food is very tasty and well cooked. More expensive than other pubs in area but worth paying more for quality food and friendly service. Nice pub and definitely worth a try.

After seeing the raving reviews about The New Inn me and my friends were very excited to go on a birthday meal there. We walked in and were greeted by a warm roaring fire and we all thought this looks good! However no atmosphere can counteract the poor meal. The Brie parcels were more like hollow fried crackers and were... More

Was recommended when looking for somewhere local for a last minute meal with a friend and wasn't disappointed! Staff were so friendly from the minute we arrived in the lovely atmosphere with a roaring fire. Staff were thoughtful and attentive but left you to enjoy the amazing food. The menu was great and portions very generous. The decor in the... More

Haven't been here for a sit down meal but intend to in the future. Always a lovely atmosphere, especially great in the colder months when you can cosy up by the open fire! We have had nibbles with our drinks - delicious rustic cheese chips to warm our bellies. Always a pleasure to pop in for a pit stop!
