Went using the itison voucher with my husband for our lunch. Had the scotch egg and the pate/chutney/potato scone starters, burger and salmon salad for main and scotch egg and banoffee cheesecake for dessert and it was all fantastic. Food initially took a while to be served but we were in no rush. Will definitely be back.

There was a bit of a wait for the food, but we expected this and were not disappointed because the food was fantastic. The biggest surprise was the final... More

My partner and I have recently moved to the area and decided to try this restaurant with family we had visiting. We have ate at the Newburgh Inn before so we had high expectations, which were definitely met! The service was great as was the food, the cheesecake is beautiful. I can't wait for our next visit.
