Great visit

My wife and I stopped by this great pub whilst staying in the area. Les is a great host and his beers enjoyable. Having travelled from Australia to this very nice and quiet area this pub was amazing. Beer garden is fantastic for all including children.

We have been to this pub on and off over many years, from the days when Ruby owned it, and then the French Chef and his English wife ( cant for the life of me remember their names, I'm sure Jackie was one of the names though ), which in our opinion was when the pub was at its best.... More

Visited on a Sunday mid April and was looking forward to the roast but was told that it wasn't available unless you've booked. Very disappointed this used to be one of my favourites.

Hi John Our policy has always been to reserve roasts for our booked customers. We pride ourselves on our Sunday lunches and believe that reserving a table should not be an inconvenience and avoids any disappointment. We would be embarrassed to have to tell someone who had taken the time to plan ahead and book a table that we had... More

The pub is in a wonderful location, and very off the beaten track, but worth the journey as very beautiful once there. Menu looks ok and I ordered a rib eye steak. The steak looked nicely cooked but on cutting it I found it to be very tough. I persevered as it could have just been one end of it... More

Don't try to turn up here for Sunday lunch unless you book ahead. If you don't book ahead the owner is most bad tempered but 'allows' you to choose from the other menuM

Hi Judith Our policy has always been to reserve roasts for customers who book, and we do comment on our website that booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. We stand by this, however, please accept our most sincere apologies for the fact that you felt you were greeted in bad temper. This would never be our intention. Regards The New... More

Nice pub with average food BUT it is reasonably priced. When I visited with friends there was very little atmosphere and a very poor welcome from the lady behind the bar. We were made to feel like a huge inconvenience to her. The pub is in a lovely location and the beer garden looks ideal for a summer pint.

An absolute GEM! The New Inn is a perfect get away place with everything you need: great links to beautiful country walks, amazing food, great service, rooms above the pub and a great selection of wine & ciders. Les the owner is a great character, if you do visit make sure you ask him why he left London ;)!

We visited the Inn during their last cider festival. What can I say? Excellent selection of ciders and the food was good too. We took friends along and they were also suitably impressed. I've opted for July 2014 as the month, but can't remember exactly when it was last summer.

Recently found this pub and I'm pretty happy we did. This little gem has a great beer garden, decking to keep you out of the English rain! I like the feel of this place, it's pretty authentic and is a million miles from a chain pub. We even saw some deer in the fields. You don't get that in Bristol!

We had a great Sunday lunch here with family. The location is well off the beaten track and feels like you are alone in the countryside. No road noise at all. For people struggling to find it, be warned that the postcode when put into a sat nav does not take you to the door! Also, there is another "New... More
