Followed the sign off the Broadwindsor to Bridport road on impulse. Was exactly what we were looking for. Cosy restaurant which accepts dogs. Welcoming staff and great food with no pretensions of grandeur. Thank you - we will be back soon.

Friendly pub just outside of Beaminster. Read a good report so we went for an evening meal. Small pub with a mixture of size and type of tables in the bar (don't know if they have another room or bar) Group of locals at the bar talking local talk and we're friendly. The menu is limited but it was a... More

Just been on holiday in the village and used the pub several times. The food was very good and the atmosphere was great. As a bonus it was dog friendly would highly recommend it if you are in the area.

We booked a table for 6 quite late in the day but were welcomed in. The pub had a warm fire going and a chatty mix of locals at the Bar. The Palmers beers were well kept and the food - rib-eye, fish stew, lamb rump, pie of the day, and starters, and puds -were all deliciously home-made. A lovely... More

This pub has a wonderful atmosphere, with a wood burner at one end and a thatched bar at the other. It is very friendly and welcoming, with locals and dogs mixing happily with visitors. The food is excellent - there is a small, ever changing menu of freshly cooked food. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait for the... More

First visit to this hidden away pub. Lovely location, beautiful gardens especially if you have the sunshine. Friendly welcome and good reasonably priced food. Definitely worth a visit.

We walked here from Beaminster with our two boys aged 5&8. What a great surprise!! It's everything you want in a village pub in the summer...great selection of traditional pub food, really well kept rear garden with plenty of space, good beer and very friendly people. The kids both had chicken burger but unlike many pubs this was REAL chicken... More

Description
The New Inn is a Traditional Village inn serving great food and real ales to both the local community and guests from further afield. We offer a great range of meals, with ingredients locally sourced, complemented by Palmer's Reals Ales and some great wines. We have a bar area and a separate restaurant, both with roaring log fires. The outside area has a large lawn for lazing on those summer days. Children and well behaved dogs are very welcome, and we have a seperate childrens menu.
