We went to The New Inn for dinner after a long walk around Portland and we were not disappointed! The lads behind the bar were extremely busy but still welcoming and friendly. We both had the burgers and they were delicious - and very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this pub.

Lovely food - mostly sourced locally. Sea food excellent and a good vegetarian selection too. Instead of a bottle of wine we went for a glass of the wine recommended for each course. That worked really well with the wines enhancing the flavour of the food. Friendly staff who didn't hurry you but we're there when you needed them. An... More

Booked a table for 3 and were greeted with a smile. We sat in the bar area and had the fish and chips with mushy peas. The fish crumbled in your mouth, there was enough on the plate, without it being overloaded. As usual a lovely experience.

Took a friend to the New Inn on Thursday and as always the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service from the barman was cheerful and nothing was too much trouble even when we took ages to order as talking and being the last to leave! Thank you.

Awesome! The food is incredible, the service was great. Really nice ambiance. Comfy seats. What's not to like? Also, all the Portland weirdos go to the pub over the road so this place has all the normal people in it! Perfect!

This was our first visit to Portland and with fine weather, were lucky enough to be staying for the weekend. After a disappointing meal the previous evening, we were on the lookout for somewhere to eat tonight and spotted The New Inn so stopped to look at the menu which looked good. We popped in to have a look and... More

Deep in the heart of off-season we had just turned back from the eatery by the lighthouse at Portland Bill because it was devoid of any character and chanced by this place on our way back to the mainland. We were enthusiastically greeted by a seriously helpful barman and although the decor was a bit 'modern' thoroughly enjoyed our meal.... More

Popped in for something to eat on the way past from work and really enjoyed the food. Tuesday night Burger and a pint for a tenner was the special of the evening. Lovely burger well cooked and chunky homemade chips that were yummy. Small wood burner in the restaurant made for a homely feel. service was polite and attentive. We... More
