Rex Rattus left this review about The New Inn

They had five ales on in here, which is good going I reckon. They were the stalwarts of London Pride and Doom Bar, supplemented by Spitfire, Cornish Coaster (£3.30 a pint), and Herok and Howell’s Festival Ale. Food is available here, although I didn’t get to see a menu. In fact a large area to the left of the bar counter has tables all laid for diners.

This is a massive block of a pub, looking more like a town hall than a pub. Inside it’s one big drinking barn, a la ‘spoons. There’s modern replacement bare boarding on the floors, some armchairs, small stools and loads of pedestal tables. There’s a TV on one of the walls of course, and some minimalist decor on the walls, consisting mainly of New York scenes. I found this place very reminiscent of an Ember Inns pub, although not quite so nice. It has the other corporate feature of all the staff wearing black shirts. There’s masses of outside seating, but the setting on a high street isn’t exactly idyllic, but fair enough if you just want to watch the world go by.

This isn’t really the sort of place where I would want to spend a lot of time, but the ale selection is OK and it’s definitely worth visiting for a swift one if waiting for a train at Hayes Station.
