Set on the National Trust-owned Newtown River estuary, this charming whitewashed pub is an absolute mecca for sailing folk. One of the island’s best-known dining pubs, The New Inn’s name refers to how it rose phoenix-like from the charred remains of an older hostelry, which burnt down in 1743. Original inglenook fireplaces, flagstone floors and low-beamed ceilings give the place bags of character. The waterside location sets the tone for the menu; the inn has a reputation for excellent seafood dishes, with lobster and cracked local crab usually available. Daily specials are chalked on blackboards around the place. Further seafood options may include beer battered fish of the day with chips, mushy peas and home-made tartare sauce; or fisherman’s pie served with locally baked bread and salad. Desserts are home made, with local cheeses and ice cream on offer. At the bar you’ll find Goddards Fuggle-Dee-Dum and Cornish Sharp’s Doom Bar among others, Westons Rosie’s Pig cider and over 60 worldwide wines.
