Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped at the pub when travelling from Cromer to Cambridge without having any idea as what type of food was on offer. Very pleasantly surprised to find good pub grub served by a very enthusisatic and capable member of staff. The food was hot, excellent...taste and not too expensive. Certainly a place to stop at if in the area. The signage outside the building could be made more eye-catching but certainly worth a visit.More

My wife and I along with her cousins had a very nice meal this evening. The roast dinners were ample and the quality was very good. When the bill came it was excellent value for money. The young lady who attended us was very friendly...and helpful. We will definitely revisit the New Inn next time we are in the area.More

We started going there after several excellent experiences, and have recommended The New Inn to others. It was Sunday lunch with a birthday in mind. We booked. Arriving punctually we could see it was busy, but with previous experience of good service we were content...to be patient. After five minutes I went to the bar and ordered drinks and asked to order lunch. Being told that someone would come to the table to take the order .. we waited ... after twenty five minutes our drinks arrived and we ordered food. Watching a number of people who had arrived after us being served ahead of us we asked politely after an hour of sitting at a baking, sunny window table for an indication of when our food might be expected. Twenty minutes later, we were told that the other customers had ordered at the bar so they had been served before us! After nearly 90 minutes the food arrived, with the briefest apology for the delay. Yes the food was excellent, but I was too hot to enjoy it, and the other family members were too frustrated to enjoy it. We also had other plans for afterwards, but.. Settling up, our complaint about the service was made. The manager eventually came and responded, "No one else has complained". I wonder if he thought this was a standard he was proud of and others were content with? Sadly, I must relate this experience to others who have been encouraged by me to visit this establishment. I regularly eat lunch with a friend and we had started coming, although it is a little out of his way. He had started coming with another friend. I doubt that they will be impressed. Happy birthday? No, a lesson learned and we learn from our mistake.More

My recent dining experience was truly disappointing. The food was abysmal, lacking any flavour and made me feel sick. The service was equally dreadful; the staff were not only rude but also slow and lazy, making us feel unwelcome. To top it off, there was...an unpleasant odor in the restaurant, which further diminished the already dismal atmosphere. I would strongly advise against dining here, as this establishment fails in both food quality and customer service. Save your time and money, and choose a different place to enjoy a satisfying meal with respectful service.More

Food was served on a dirty plate and waitress wiped her nose when serving our desert. This was pointed out in a polite manner to who I though was the manager and his reply was along the lines of “well you’ve eaten the food now...so you’ll have to pay for it.” I would say to avoid this place unless you are starving, desperate or stupid.More

5 minutes drive from Cromer and well worth it. Lovely beer garden and the food and staff are lovely. Great choice of food, recommend the homemade soup, pies and roast dinners.

One of the best breakfasts we have had. Lots of toast too!! Man who serves you is grumpy but there is a sign above the bar warning you (a grumpy man and a lovely lady live here). Would definitely return

Haven't been for some time, but a friend had a good experience. It was excellent. The food was prepared on the premises and good portion size. Main course on good, hot plates and quality. Very tasty desserts. A great range of traditional UK dishes. The...only sad bit was we were the only customers! Nevertheless, we were comfortable in the bar, no intrusive background noise. Customer-friendly prices. Places like this are rare treasures. We'll be back soon.More

Firstly, I can’t comment on how the food was as we walked out before even ordering. On arrival the man working behind the bar was so rude to us, really grumpy, unwelcoming and made us feel very uncomfortable, like we were a nuisance for booking...a table and simply being there. After ordering drinks we were having a look through the menu when 15 minutes later the same man came out to tell us to basically hurry up and order as the kitchen closes in 5 minutes. This was a Saturday night and the place was empty, now we understand why. We left before choosing to spend anymore money here and went to eat at a lovely restaurant in sheringham with lovely friendly staff! Wouldn’t return.More

The food is excellent, nicely cooked and presented by very friendly staff. The pub is dog friendly but only if you sit in the bar rather than the restaurant and I think I would have given this a 5 star review if we could have...been in the restaurant. I get that not everyone wants a dog as company for their evening meal but if it is ok for the bar, why not for the restaurant??More

These days, evening Sunday roasts are hard to find but The New Inn was an exceptional find. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, the food and portion sizes were to perfection, the home made pies and puddings were traditionally English. The pub landlord and...its staff should be very proud!More

Popped into The New Inn, Roughton on the off chance during a very pleasant walk in this lovely area. We were greeted very warmly and shown into the restaurant area. The staff, all smiling, helpful and relaxed even though the restaurant was pretty much at...capacity. Very nice selection of typical pub food complimented by a few specials which included an oriental option. Prices were very reasonable. The roast selection offered a Grandma/grandad portion at a reduced cost. Nice touch!! I had the home made, short crust steak & Guinness pie which was delicious. Vegetables were perfectly cooked, portions were generous and value excellent. The staff are so friendly, lovely smiles, engaging, attentive and helpful. For example they asked if we would like some extra gravy without a prompt when I was just thinking I wouldn't mind some extra gravy. We're in the area for a week. Will definitely be going back there.More
