Will Larter left this review about The New Inn

A roadside pub with a large car park, this is a former local Camra pub of the year. Entering from the car park there's a small area of seats and tables around a large fireplace, but the main part of the pub is at a slightly higher level. Space generally seems a bit limited by the cluttered layout of the tables, so that it almost feels like a struggle to get to the bar even when there's only a handful of customers.

The bar, quite a long way back, it seems, with another room behind (blocked off at the time of my visit, probably because it was quiet) has four hand pumps, with Otter Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Old Rosie cider and, at the time of my visit, Caledonian Poltergeist Porter. A large number of former pump clips adorn the walls, along with some old Adnams brewery adverts. The bar itself was festooned with lights fashioned to look like red berries - is it Christmas? There was some background music that stayed firmly in the background, and this made quite a pleasant short stop for me on my cycle ride to Bristol.
