Blackthorn _ left this review about The New Inn

Extensively refurbished since my previous review, this is now much more contemporary in appearance, with only a panel of stained glass being incorporated in to a sloping porch roof providing any reminder of what the pub used to be like.

Downstairs it’s all one open plan, L-shaped room with parquet wooden flooring, cream plasterwork and all the timber painted a dark grey. An unusual feature wall paper to the left was made to look like a collection of wooden rulers, all branded with American company names. A couple of plasma screens were showing a sports channel, but fortunately the volume was off so this was not too intrusive. A couple of further rooms are located upstairs with large chunky farmhouse tables, which were perhaps more geared up for dining although they were empty on our visit. There is also a roof terrace with quite a few tables and chairs, although the outlook isn’t much of it. A glass floor panel also acts as a roof window to the bar below, and should make interesting viewing for punters there in the event of any ladies in short skirts walking across it.

The menu consisted entirely of ciabattas and a good selection of burgers, the latter being priced somewhere around the £7 - £10 range. There was also a Sundae Bar section to the menu, and a selection of cakes and pastries on the bar counter.

Beers on tap were Blond Angel, Fallen Angel, Whitstable Pale Ale and 6X. Ciders meanwhile were Thatcher’s Gold and Thatcher’s Heritage.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The New Inn

A traditional Wadworth’s pub situated a couple of minutes stroll from the centre. As you enter in to the entrance vestibule, you can go right in to the snug or left in to the public bar. Whilst the snug was undoubtedly small, it wasn’t as cosy as might be expected and we found the public bar to have considerably more atmosphere. The snug was a triangular shape, with a helpful sign saying to ring bell for service, which was just as well as all the punters, and barman, were in the other bar.

As mentioned, the main bar is an attractive room with some thick, heavy beams on the ceiling as well as a small stained glass window that looks as though it may have come from a church. The floor is mostly slate tiles, although with some carpet as well and the walls had wood panelling lower down with a sandy wallpaper up above.

Numerous tankards, jugs and beer pump clips were hung from the ceiling and there was an impressive collection of beer mats stuck above the bar, although in contrast to this the only beers on offer were from Wadworths. The average age of the punters seemed to be well over fifty, and it was one of those pubs where everyone seemed to congregate at the bar, although at least you didn’t have to push through to try and get served like some places.

Beers were all from Wadworths as previously noted, with Bishop’s Tipple being dispensed at the bar plus 6X and Henry’s IPA coming from barrels racked up on the stillage behind. The solitary cider was Stowford Press.

This tradional style Wadworths pub is situated at the edge of the City centre. The interior is split into two bars, the main bar to the laft of the entrance lobby and, to the right, a small snug bar.

The snug is as cosy a place as you will probably find in Bath with a small fire and multitude of hemely pictures and a small service hatch. The much larger public bar contains a false wooden beamed ceiling from which a series of tankards dangle and any spare space is covered by the hundreds of old pump clips. There is nothing pretentious or trendy about the furnishings or décor, no TV’s or music, just a good old fashioned welcome from the customers and staff alike, to the point of offering us their Sunday lunchtime cheese and crackers to finish off even though we were only staying for a quick pint.

For our visit the ales consisted of Bishops Tipple and 125 Stout on hand pump with 3 casks on gravity at the back of the bar containing Henry’s IPA, Horizon and 6X. The 125 stout was probably as good as anything I had all day across 9 pubs in town.

One of our group made this their pub of the day and given the friendly welcome we received, I would certainly have no qualms on including it on any future beer tours of town.
