Great room, Great Food, Great Service!

My wife and I recently stayed at The New Inn.

Their bed and breakfast package is exceptionally good value on a Sunday night at just £50. They offer 8 en-suite bedrooms. The room was modern and spotlessly clean, the bedding crisp and white and the towels large and fluffy.There was plenty of hot water. The room had a freesat tv, a hair-dryer, tea and coffee, toiletries, free wi-fi, - in fact everything that you might need. We had dinner in the restaurant on the Sunday night and the food was excellent. Much better than your standard pub grub without being extortionately expensive. If you visit their website the menu is on there.The same goes for the Full English breakfast the following morning (with home made jams and marmalade). The service was superb - everyone we met had a natural personality that shone through. Whoever recruited and trained this team did a really good job. We were made to feel very welcome. On departure I asked for the peoples names and special mentions go to Ethan (Multi skilled barman/receptionist/garden furniture cleaner & yard sweeper), Jordan (waiter), Bryony (waitress), John (evening chef) and Mariam (breakfast chef). Go and stay there, you wont be disappointed. It's excellent!
