Spent a splendid evening at the New Inn. The service was outstanding, the food was really good and the local cider was first class. The folks that I was with all had the seafood and they all three said how really good it was. I had the fish & chips, which was excellent.

Came to our local for a meal and was disappointed with the menu as it seems to be overtaken by fish and seafood. My partner and I are not fish lovers and even though we understand we live in an area where local caught fish is, we were shocked to find the menu only had three maybe 4 non fish... More

A delight when the new regime relaunched this place a few years ago - full of excitement, best intentions and high aspirations, the place to go if you wanted a good real ale or a meal that was a bit special. We've eaten some great food here and stayed loyal through, recently, increasingly indifferent meals. The menu is now too... More

popped in the pub opposite as it looked slightly better from the front but very disappointing inside, walked across the road to the NEW INN and was very pleased I did. Had a very warm welcome and there was two real ales on with one being very local and the other another Dorset ale. Plenty of choice on the menu... More

Had a couple of nights here while on a diving trip. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was very small but it was sufficient for 1 person. The room was clean and the shower room was decent size. Parking was free outside if you could find a spot.

Went here to try out the food and we were not disappointed, prices were a little more expensive but the food was lovely. A nice place for a few drinks and a lovely meal with friends. The waitress that served us was very helpful and friendly. A must try for people visiting Portland/Weymouth.
