Having read good reviews we booked a table as we were visiting the area, but we were very disappointed. The restaurant was really full and noisy with a large party in place, which also affected our service, which was delayed. After a long wait, we placed our orders and had another long wait. My lasagne seemed nice at first, but... More

Firstly let me say that there is nothing particularly wrong with this pub. It's fine by any standards with welcoming staff, attractive decor and reasonable food. There's plenty of parking too. We visited recently and had the standard fish and chips and pie of the day with a soft drink and a pint of beer. The bill came to £26... More

We had heard great reviews about this place and were recommended by the place we were staying at to try the food here. It was a Tuesday afternoon and it was very quiet . The log fire is a lovely touch and its an obvious favourite with dog owners. I had the fish and chips, and coming from someone who... More

Came to The New Inn for dinner after the pub down the road wasn't serving food the evening we wanted to go. Upon arrival, the staff were lovely and welcoming. You walk in and first you think Country Pub but the food was lovely, nice big portions and the drinks were well priced too.

Can't fault this place. Came on an evening after a day of walking. Sat by the log fire which was roaring. Lovely food I had the gammon my partner had the steak, big portions and also dog friendly which was a bonus. We also got talking to some locals who were very friendly along with the owners.

We have eaten here a few times and always make sure we come back whenever we are in the area. It gets busy and can be a bit of a bun fight to get a table. The food is traditional pub fare and is always well cooked. In the winter they have a roaring fire which helps the atmosphere. Good... More

We visited the New Inn after being recommended it from our B&B (The Rock). We got exactly what we expected, good, solid, hearty food. I went for the rack of ribs and my partner had one of their pies. Portions were ample, and my ribs were cooked perfectly. The pie was also very good. All in all it's hard to... More

The menu is traditional pub food. Food was very tasty and served hot. The ribs were lovely and my chicken and leek pie was gorgeous. Nice choice of desserts. Mains cost around £10-£15 and starters/desserts are £5. Waitress was friendly.
