One woman serving, very fast, efficient, helpful and friendly. Pleasant décor and atmosphere. Fish dishes very good, everything else a bit disappointing, veggie pattie awful. Beer great.

My family and I had enjoyed a week on the island - We came about the New Inn by chance and ordered the moules-frites, Sea food platter and home made burger. Ryan the bar tender served us; who made our short experience very memorable; to the extent that we visited the establishment another evening to sample the excellent food and... More

Had a lovely lunch here. Barmaid was excellent and had some unusual customers to deal with, she did this really well and made them very welcome. Crab sandwich was great, including claw on the plate, chunky chips very crispy. Set lunch was good value and nice food too.

Arrived too early for us to eat so told the staff we would like to eat later. They reserved a table for whenever we was ready! Fabulous food, wine and atmosphere, they could not do enough for you. Every table was taken and you was made welcome if you was a couple, party or family. Nice to see lots of... More

This pub has a good atmosphere with friendly staff. My husbands and I ordered the seafood platter each which was delicious. The scallops and crab were particularly good and tasted very fresh. The dish cam with white bread and when I asked if it would be possible to have brown it was not a problem. For the real ale lover... More

Using trip advisor we found this Pub/restaurant and we are so glad we did. The seafood platter in itself fabulous but then cam the crab claws oh my goodness loads of them so much to eat but we managed. Claws in white wine and garlic amazing thank you chef.

After a long Saturday (day and night) at Weymouth seafood festival we couldn't face cooking on Sunday so we took ourselves up to the New Inn for a late Sunday lunch. The welcome when we first walked in was extremely warm, friendly and welcoming. The personal service we recieved for drinks and food I would say is almost unknown in... More
