Nicely done inside. Dogs not welcome which was disappointing. Only two real ales on both from Ringwood Brewery but both very nice. All in all worth a try. Friendly staff too. Food menu looked good, just wrong time for us, otherwise would have stayed.

My husband and I visited 16/1/16 and had a meal and a bottle of wine in the evening. Service, location and seating, quality and quantity of food all excellent. We felt very special! Prices very good (£12 - £16/main meal). Would totally recommend. Best meal we've had for a while.

Intriguing exterior artwork & great garden which im sure is delightful in the summer months. We booked though very quiet, which gave us an opportunity to see this place at its best.

Thank you for your feedback. We are a little confused concerning your comments regarding the 2 male owners. My husband and I own The New Inn, and I hope I don't look like a man.

Great staff great ales. The place feels welcoming and comfortable as soon as you walk in. Natural really well done individual place. More people should come over from "the mainland" they don't know what they are missing. Happy Christmas

The food at the New Inn is very nice, it is well presented and tastes very good. I feel for a village pub and what you get the prices are their only downfall as it is quiet expensive for just good pub food. I eat at some expensive restaurants, however, they have stunning views and a more personal service and... More
