Friendly service, all had good meals. Bar bill was cheap! Staying at cabin holiday park, worth a night out.

I had good old Fish and Chips but others had a variety of sandwiches and meals. All the ones I saw looked good and my Fish and Chips certainly tasted good. Prices were reasonable and we'd certainly stop for lunch again.

A warm welcolm, great atmosphere let me have drink while i waited for my partner to arrive because i only had a card and you had to spend a minimum of £10.00. Food very fresh we had fish and chips.

At 14:55 we were told there was no food being served although a banner says food served until 15:00. They couldn't even rustle up a bowl of chips. Terrible service would stay well clear of this place!

Food was lovely - managed to book 6 in at short notice on a Saturday night. Generous portions with starters only a fiver! We went back on Sunday for the roast - brought out extra veg, roasters and gravy! Only a 15 min walk from Forest Holidays so would highly recommend

From the moment we stepped through the door, the customer service we received from the woman behind the bar (may have been the manager), was absolutely terrible. She was rude, unhelpful and had a face like thunder the whole time we were there. Had some drinks and food, which would be what you'd expect for pub grub. Would recommend for... More

We visited the New Inn when staying at Forest Cabins. The service was really good they were able to squeeze us in when they were really busy. When ordering we were advised portions were large, when the food we couldn't believe how big they were. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the... More

The rudest staff I have ever encountered anywhere, the red headed woman who works behind the bar has the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Constantly rude to me and my friends and when we complained the manager simply said 'I don't care'. DO NOT GO HERE AT ALL COSTS!!!. Ruined a good night for me and a my... More

After our drive from Cardiff to the cabin, we decided to come to the New Inn for tea with our 1 year old. We were greeted with a nice and warm log fire, a friendly smile at the bar and ready to take our order. We order gammon, ribs, a side of onion rings and sausage and chips for our... More
