We visited Portland in September and had The New Inn recommended to us by a local resident. It was easy to get to by public transport and we found it quickly. The staff were amazing and very friendly and welcoming. We soon felt like old friends but they were still very professional and passionate about the service. They go to... More

I booked four of us in for Sunday lunch as I have read some excellent reviews. I did see this establishment on Four in a Bed a while ago and thought it looked great then. We have recently moved to Portland from Somerset, and will slowly be trying out all of the pubs on the island! However, The New Inn... More

We were a group of about 30, staying at Pennsylvania Castle for a friends wedding, a 15 min walk away. Our food was pre-ordered to speed things up and the service was brilliant. They had everything ready for us and everyone had a great time. A couple of good local ales to try (something 'Golden' and something (Dorset?) 'Knob'. Would... More

Always nice when something surprises you!!! We didn't expect too much but from the moment that we stepped in the door to the moment we left, Ryan our waiter, was excellent. So refreshing to see a nice balanced youngster able to communicate and keep up with the banter of 7 adults. Then the food.....absolutely lovely......really well done guys!! Shame that... More

We stopped in at the New Inn halfway through a day's hike around the island.... a place we have never visited before. It was hard to choose from the menu - it all looked lovely, but choose we did and we both had the fish platter. It was absolutely superb and extremely well presented. We thought the price very reasonable,... More
