We enjoyed a good English Sunday lunch overlooking the river Burr on a sunny afternoon listening to a group playing and singing sea shanties. Everything was good but the roast potatoes left a lot to be desired. However, we are looking forward to returning sometime...More

Despite not having booked on a busy Sunday lunchtime, the staff managed to find us a convenient table. Good "gastropub" menu and wine list.

We usually visit the Swan Inn at Horning but after a poor experience last year we decided to try here instead. The outside seating area was very nice although a little noisier than the Swan Inn due to the amusements but overall a larger area...More

Beer and food are excellent and reasonably priced. Friendly staff and mooring attendant if you go by boat.

We arrived late and were worried we wouldn't get served but a quick word with the chef and we were seated. Good pub grub and good service.

Yes many of the reviews on TripAdvisor are complimentary and we kindly remind potential guests to book ahead to avoid disappointment... which you didn't. It is the height of summer and this season with the incredible weather we have been even busier than normal. If...More

Have popped in for a drink 3 times now and each time there is never enough staff on behind the bar. It's a very busy pub being right on the river so if you are wanting to eat then booking would certainly be advisable. Beautiful...More

We ate here on one of the hottest days of the year. We ate inside, can’t be helped but there was no air flowing through the pub. Again I was surprised at how we had to order everything ourselves at the bar..something I find impersonal....More

Thank you for this follow up, however, from our perspective it would seem that you didn't read the menu properly or were confused. No specials board, which we have - the fish and chips you mention are on the specials board... More

Important: to avoid disappointment, please call ahead to reserve your moorings / dining table. We are a pub offering great traditional pub food... not a fine dining restaurant and we do not offer table service. Thank you! 2015 Winner of 'Best Food', 'Best Moorings', 'Most Improved Business' on The Broads. The New Inn is a traditional family pub located in the idyllic village of Horning on the Rive Bure, set in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. Since June 2014 The New Inn has been under new ownership with the owners and management team placing an emphasis on utilising Norfolk's finest produce whilst continuing to offer great value for money. The pub has a warm friendly atmosphere and prides itself on serving traditional locally sourced food, high quality Cask ales and fine wines. The New Inn has a spacious riverside garden that includes a covered patio and heated decking area, both are ideal for spending time relaxing by the river and watching the world go by. We have ample free mooring for day boats in our basin and for overnight boats on our quay heading, as well as a car park alongside if you are travelling by vehicle. For those of you who looking for entertainment, we have an outdoor amusements area for the children, air hockey and pool tables, plus quiz nights are held each week on Fridays. We also regularly host live music on Saturdays (please see our upcoming events). Dogs are not allowed inside of the pub (excluding guide dogs), however, well-behaved dogs are welcome on the heated decking and garden areas providing they are on a lead. Polite reminder: The New Inn has become increasingly popular, therefore, please remember to book in advance if you wish to reserve a boat mooring or to dine with us. We close the kitchen between 4pm and 5pm to prepare for the evening service.
