As a 'snack' we had 4 amazing / large oysters. The best I have had in a long time. Our next courses were chosen from the specials board. We... read more

The food that we ate at the New Inn was delicious. The four of us had different meals but we all equally enjoyed it. We went on the Moules Frites night which was a good deal for anyone who likes mussels. My husband also liked the good selection of local ales they had.

Had the best fish and chips we've eaten for years. Topped off with great beer and friendly staff. The mussels are worth a mention too. Will definitely be returning next time we're in Portland.

My husband and I were in Portland considering buying a property, wanted to get the feel of the Island. Walked into this pub on a busy Sunday lunchtime in high season without a reservation. They told us that were fully booked and had a large party coming in, also told us there was a likely wait for food (45 minutes)... More

As regular customers we were disappointed to go into our 'local' pub at 11.20pm to be told by a very curt employee that "we are closed". Well I counted about 30 people still in the bar with very full drinks. The message I got from this was we are happy to have your custom throughout the winter when business is... More
