I found this pub on the internet in my google search 'homemade food pub Forest of Dean' after a long walk and it didn't disappoint! Although the fire wasn't on, the atmosphere was good and the food was SO good! I'll be returning if I go walking in the area again

Our local pub, it has a new play area for the little ones in the garden. The food is fantastic and the staff are friendly. What more do you need? I would recommend this pub for families or singletons alike. They also have sky sports and a large parking area. The open fire is lit when its cold making it... More

We stopped off at this pub for lunch. I ordered lasagne and my hubby and daughter had filled baguettes. We couldn't believe the size of the portions, huge. Very nice food would definitely go back if in the area.

We visited the New Inn on our last night in the forest and had a really great night. We had pre-booked a table, it wasn't ready when we arrived, but the we didnt mind as we could see the whole place was really busy. The bar ladies were really welcoming and sat us down as soon as possible. Between us... More

Homely pub in a lovely country setting. Great garden with play area for the kids with nice views. We walked up from Bracelands campsite which took about 30 minutes. Two adults and two boys 13 and 9. One of the boys wanted whitebait for a main course (itwas a starter on the menu) and they were happy to accommodate him.... More

Enjoyed two meals on consecutive nights, both were wholesome and tasty. The generous proportions were more than adequate. The tastiest dish, was obviously their home made pie, which sold out by 8pm (even after an increase in stock on the second night). The steaks were also sold out. So eat early! The bar surface was completely covered in DOOMBAR mats,... More
