It's a shame that you don't accept 'walk ins' on a Sunday rather than pre-booked meals. Even a sandwich would have been better than no food at all. You should mention it on your website so more walkers are not disappointed.More

I would love to accept your delightful review, but unfortunately I believe your review is for The New Inn, Cerne Abbas not The New Inn, Stoke Abbott. Perhaps one Sunday you might pop into us, and have an equally good meal.

Waited 50 minutes for a very basic roast dinner. Over boiled cabbage, boiled carrots and burnt Yorkshire puddings and cauliflower cheese. Kids were so fed up we didn’t hang around for dessert.

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.
