“As good as ever !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Back on Tresco and so far in 2 days have enjoyed a dinner and a lunch at The New Inn. A warm 'welcome back' from Robin is always a good start and the rest of the staff are always delightful and friendly. Every dish at each meal chosen by our party of 8 was described as 'delicious'. The lunchtime smoked haddock, bacon and spinach risotto with poached egg was exceptionally good. Great to be back and find that we are still able to enjoy being spoilt at the New Inn.

“Consistently Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We have been eating here for many years and the standard has remained consistently high from a point of view of the food, its quality, the drinks and the staff. A lovely bowl of homemade soup presented with a decent chunk of homemade bread. Very tasty fish and chips and always a selection of daily specials featuring the islands' produce. Robin and his staff are always very friendly and efficient - and the pub is always clean with plenty of well spaced seating.

“Quiet and quaint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Rustic style pub with a traditional English menu, Service was good , and the outside seating area is a most appealing place to dine with the Sparrows and Bluetits so tame they will pluck food from your hand , most entertaining.
Happy to return on next visit.

“Delicious food, top class service and the best selection of drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We have visited this pub a few times in the last couple of years when visiting Tresco and never been disappointed! The food has always been delicious especially the scotch egg starter. Makes my mouth water thinking about the desert menu. The selection of drinks available is amazing I've never been so happy as there are plenty of rums and whiskeys to sample! And thanks to the great team of staff for always looking after us. Would recommend a trip to Tresco it's a beautiful island.

“Very Nice Pub/Restaurant on Tresco Island!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Usually when you have lunch at the ONLY place open on the whole island, you don't expect much, do you? We were, however, pleasantly surprised.
When dropped off by our boatman at Tresco for a visit to the Tresco Abbey Gardens (Reviewed by me separately), he told us he'd pick us up at the quay on the other side of the island in the afternoon, and also recommended the New Inn for lunch (Not that we had much of a choice....).
It was very nice. The pub/restaurant belongs to an inn/hotel, that was empty at the time.
However, they still served food for the occasional (Very occasional....) tourist.
We all started with the locally grown pumpkin soup which was great. My wife took the Duck Spring Roll which was super, and the rest of us took the Baked Hake on Fish Stew which was excellent.
All this went down with good ale and pear cider, to be followed by very nice desserts.
The overall feeling was strange (Therefore the "Very Good" rating only) because of the kind of empty/deserted atmosphere.
However, it was totally unexpected and surprisingly good.......I am sure that when the place is full the atmosphere is great.
