We have dined here twice recently and both times I have to give 10 out of 10 for service, food and the atmosphere of the pub. The food is locally sourced and the 30 mile radius Sunday roast sounds like a must especially as the Portland Hogget sounds interesting. There is a good choice of food on the menu and... More

Stayed in the new inn for a weekend and loved it, pub was beautiful inside, warm and friendly, food was good with hearty potions, and the ale was local and perfect, the room we had was clean, roomy, and everything you could ask of in a b&b, and the price was outstanding. The thing i enjoyed most was the breakfast... More

Having lived on there and then moving on as a boy in the early 70's, I always recalled Portland with fondness and have been a frequent visitor there in more recent years. One place I passed many times through to Cheney Weares, Church Ope Cove or the Bill was Easton. I had never entered the New Inn until recently we... More

Sam's friendly, genuine nature and his quality service was refreshing! We need more people like Sam in this industry! It makes a huge difference when a customer is greeted with a smile and seems to actually care. Thank you, Sam! I will return to The New Inn for food/drink solely because of your standard of service.

After reading such brilliant reviews we could not wait to visit The New Inn. Saturday evening and the place was heaving, always nice to see, the food looked amazing. We had a drink at the bar and were then shown to our table, menus were produced and after much deliberation we finally chose. Our starters arrive about 20 minutes after... More
