Very quiet for a Saturday night not as busy as it has been when we have been before food was excellent but I do abject to paying extra for vegtibales when they are cheap as chips in the shops and not much choice as well but it was all well cooked and the Marathon pudding was to die for .

Overpriced (small glass of prosecco £8 ), food very average and chicken tasted burnt, no sides of vegetables. Service charge added on bill which I feel should be my choice to give. Will not be returning and have cancelled a future booking.

Wow! A sunny day and everyone turns up at the pub....except the staff. One very hard working waitress did a great job but the service called for at least 3. Bloody Mary’s arrived about 30 minutes after being ordered but the food was capable and worth waiting for. Luckily the parties there got into the act and started buzzing their own dishes. Is this my first insight into the impact of Brexit? Where has all the staff gone?

We went for lunch with friends, who were visiting the area for the first time, and we took a chance that the New Inn would be ideal. However, considering the price for the food, we were disappointed by the experience. The main lady in charge was really friendly and the price of the drinks was great but the food was a let down. The first course of whitebait with a spoonful of cocktail sauce did not look appetizing at all, and no garnish or small amount of bread. My main course of plaice swimming in butter and no vegetables, only samphire plonked on top was just about OK but the amount of butter made in somewhat unappetizing. No mention by the waitress that we should order sides of vegetables. The cheese burger was similar to a McDonalds and chips were poor. Perhaps because it was 1.00pm on Tuesday we didn't get the best chef.

We’ve eaten in quite a few Cotswold country pubs and this is certainly up there as one of the best we’ve visited. The pub is beautiful as is the amazing location. The service and attention to their customers was fantastic. The price of drinks/food is a little more expensive then most in the area but to be honest is reflected the quality of the ingredients and well thought out menu. The only annoyance we found was the fact that a 12.5% service charge is automatically included on the bill for a table of two, this is normally included for large groups. Tips are supposed be optional and amount set by the customer. If a customer offers a tip, they are doing so in recognition of the establishments quality. We would of happily tipped anyway as this a fantastic pub well worth a return visit.

A family get together and a bit of a treat on a Saturday night, The New Inn did not disappoint. Although we live in the next village, we have found it a bit hit and miss in the past but this was definitely a few notches up on our last experience. Food was excellent - lots of healthy choices and heaven for fish lovers which was most of us. Very good oysters, mussels, mackerel and Sole - veg were good and our daughter loved her steak - chips could have been cooked a couple more minutes but she seemed to have no trouble in putting them away! Also tried the gnudi (never had it before) and it was light and very delicious. Too full for puds. Wine reasonable and staff very attentive and knowledgable. Will definitely be back.

This restaurant was lovely, we stayed locally and had been in for a few drinks. The meal was lovely, very expensive and the food was good but was still hungry after having a 3 course meal.
A lovely place. Firstly we had a little alcove to ourselves, window seat, was absolutely perfect. When it started getting busy, it got louder and therefore didn't feel as enjoyable.

I was very impressed by the choice on the menu; sometimes you struggle to choose but we all found there were several dishes we wanted to eat. The food was freshly cooked and came to the table piping hot and tasted delicious. I liked the restaurant and bar area very much. The staff were friendly and polite. A great venue for a special meal.

Lovely, really friendly staff. My soufflé was the best part of my meal, delicious, and my husband enjoyed his ham hock. Our mains were simple but good. My husband’s main did not include vegetables and he was not made aware of this. He however shared my chips so all was not lost! He loved his lemon sole, though and my steak was nice - ‘what it says on the tin’! We had a sweet each - very nice. No complaints, very enjoyable.
