Very expensive for just pub food, choice very limited, and even then told things off menu, better to eat some where else if you want value for money. Trying to be more than they are. Should be just a good inn, at reasonable prices Not a top hotel and will never be. I will not eat there again.

Modules frites with a kick, fresh fish, beer well kept. What's not to like? Oh the toilets - always clean but they don't match the quality of the decor in the rest of the place but I always moan about that.

My wife and I enjoyed a lunch and dinner at The New Inn while we were on holiday in Portland last month. The staff are friendly and the food is very good. We have no hesitation if recommending The New Inn for residents and visitors alike.

Friendly staff and excellent service. Husband had the surf and turf and thoroughly enjoyed it. My son and I had the steak which was good, just not great. All in all it was good, just a tad pricey.

We stopped here on the basis of previous reviews and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and all three courses were delicious. We mainly focused on seafood and my starter of scallops with chorizo chutney was particularly good. If we return to Portland, we will definitely make a point of eating here again!
