New Inn Portland is a cracking venue, recently visited and we loved it. Portland is a wonderful place but the weather was less than good. However, staying in the warm and welcoming bar and having some drinks was ideal. You must try the Gurt Stout but beware don't mix it with the delicious ciders. We'll be back. We stayed for... More

We were staying in the area for my husbands 50th birthday with family. I booked in advance as this was a 5 min walk so very convenient. Wow what a good choice. A total,of 9 people in our party and everyone had a fantastic meal. Please pass on our compliments to the chef who we met and couldn't believe he... More

We stayed in one of the lovely cosy rooms on a Saturday night and had dinner in the pub. Wonderful food, great hosts, comfy bed and the breakfast hamper was amazing - we couldn't eat everything there was so much. Would definitely recommend this as a base for exploring Portland and we will be going back!

Popped in for a light, late lunch and was disappointed by the very, very limited menu. About the only thing marginally appealing was a sandwich so we opted for that with a dessert and was amazed that, with a couple of drinks, when the bill came it was over £50 for just two of us! Mediocre food at undeserved top... More

We would like to respond, we feel this is a very harsh review and would like to clarify our menu pricing. Calculating the bill from our highest price sandwich £7.50 (for fresh Portland crab) with a dessert £6.50. For 2 people food total would be £28 (having sandwiches and desserts each). If we include a couple of drinks at £4... More

We stayed 2 nights in this great pub. The food in the restaurant was amazing and the local beer and cider complemented the lovely local fish dishes. The breakfast hampers were unique and really tasty, delivered to our door at a set time, with choice of tea or coffee, it meant we truly had breakfast in bed. Our room was... More

Great beer and the food was really really good, the portions were a little small for me. I hadn't eaten since 7-30 am and it was now 19-00 so I was very hungry definitely recommend

I was very lucky to win a 3 course lunch time meal for two in a recent competition, so I took along my sister and we were both greeted with a very friendly welcome from the staff and showed our cosy table by the log fire. We opted for a gorgeous beetroot and warmed goats cheese starter (the best goats... More

We had an evening gathering for family from far and wide in remembrance of my parents at The New Inn, 9 in total ranging from 8 to 80 years old and to my knowledge we hadn't booked a table in advance. We were quickly shown a table in the restaurant area, several of us remarked on the large outdoor area... More
