Don't be fooled by the quaint look of the traditional British pub. What hides inside is not only a fantastic welcome but food and atmosphere that is only achieved when you really love what you are doing.
Admittedly we came to this pub with friends because of its rating on trip advisor. We didn't regret it.
Our intention was to enjoy a main meal, some wine and grab a taxi home for a simple night out. There are no menus, a simple chalk board with all starters and main course were rested against and empty table near us. While our drinks were collected by the very attentive staff we concluded that we wished they offered a tasting plate selection of all of the dishes. Each dish was described to us explaining some of the spices that are used and we chose: baked Camembert, duck spring rolls and mushroom and Stilton - all plates were clean when picked up by the staff. We followed with beef rendang, lamb, scampi and pork chop (locally reared).
The food was fantastic and by the time the options of desert came we were full.
It did not stop 3 of us having desert though and the choices of lemon cheesecake, chocolate lumpy bumpy and a rather large profiterole. They lived up to the high standards set by the first 2 courses.
The total bill for 4 including wine, spirits and beers was £120. I would not question recommending The New Inn to anyone.
