Visiting the area for a week and have been fortunate to have the New Inn, Shortstanding as a local pub. Visited four times, three of the visits for the excellent food. We enjoyed a fabulous 3 course meal on Father's Day for just £16. The other meals we had there were just as good and the price is extremely reasonable.... More

Had another excellent meal today. Staff as always really nice and friendly. Food had quantity and quality. Something I have forgotten to mention before is the emaculate toilets. They are very clean and smell lovely. There us also a vast arrangement of nappies,nappy sacks and ladies toiletries that I have never seen before anywhere.

A group of us "oldies" were staying at the Forest of Dean Cabin site and within a short walking distance is this excellent pub. Good simple menu, good prices and wonderful cheerful service. Our only problem was the portions were tooooo big alas no room for a dessert!! Try it.

We visited the New Inn while staying in the Forest Holiday Cabins nearby (within a very short walk if you are also staying there) it is a dog friendly pub with a lovely beer garden. Which has excellent service and the Sunday Lunch was fantastic. We have visited quite a few times since getting here and would recommend it to... More

We visited this pub for a quick lunchtime drink whilst on holiday in the area. We were attracted by the fact this is a dog friendly pub. Dogs are allowed in the pub which is good if the weather is bad. Outside there is a children's play area. More suitable for under 8's than over 8's. The toilets were immaculate... More

Nice enough place, simple, but nice location and decor. Service was really rather disorganised, the waitress seemed convinced that they were too busy to serve us, even though to me it seemed like a quiet Tuesday evening. We happily waited with a drink but when we asked for a menu just to look at whilst we waited we were brushed... More

Visited this pub one evening in May and we both had steak. The meal was what I would call a typical pub meal. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either. Our steaks were a bit fatty but appreciate that can be the luck of the draw with steak. The prices were a bit on the high side... More
