Only popped into the pub with my wife on our anniversary weekend for a quick drink, lovely new owners with a cute daughter, tastefully decorated, would like to return and eat there in the future. Hope the Thai Dye wasn’t too messy. Dawn & Marc

Travelling along A35 looking fo food and drink. Saw the sign and ventured off A35 to investigate. Lovely location, friendly staff and excellent food. Light plate lunch westbound and really good Sunday lunch eastbound. Definitely worth a visit if travelling A35

Saw a sign on the A35 and went for drink and a snack. The welcome was good and I chose a local beer, with a tandoori chicken both good. Well worth breaking your journey.

Description
Nestled in the Dorset village of Shipton Gorge a few miles east of Bridport, the New Inn is a traditional village pub and beer garden, run by husband and wife team Jason and Simone Freeman. Whether you live round the corner or are visiting the area, the New Inn offers everything you could want from a village pub - a warm welcome, a gorgeous building with bags of character, top quality food and drink (including pristine Cask Marque ales) and a real community feel. With the Jurassic Coastline as a backdrop, many guests call at the New Inn for refreshments and food, whilst navigating the lovely countryside and network of paths that the parish has to offer.
