We spent an excellent evening at The New Inn. A fresh face has been made to this lovely old pub. A great welcome, fabulous food and friendly efficient staff. Definitely the best pub in the area.

What a beautiful local Pub / B&B Inn in an attractive village in beautiful walking country! A chance booking to meet up with old school friends unearthed this gem of a pub, with fresh contemporary interior design, very friendly personal service , good and varied...menu cooked and served very nicely. Bedrooms are all refurbished and tastefully decorated - as are the new en suite bathrooms. I understand this community pub is owned by 200 locals and managed by a small team of genuinely interested volunteers. Great formula - we will be back! p.s. the staff were really welcoming - special thank you Serena!More

We took some friends here and wow. We walked in and it was just how a pub should be. Locals around the bar , the place was buzzing. Really lovely staff, it was all excellent. We had delicious food……asparagus followed by stuffed chicken . The...wine was excellent as well. So we’ll done and thank you. We don’t live far and our pub in our village is an embarrassment.More

I've eaten here before as my parents live nearby, but not since the pub changed ownership. We were a bit nervous when they said they had electrical issues in the kitchen, but despite their warnings the food arrived promptly and was delicious. The service was...also exemplary - it's a thin line between too little attention and too much which the staff judged to perfection. Halse is very, very lucky to be served by a pub like this.More

We chose this location as it was close to Bishop Lydiard where we were going for a steam train event. It was great, a really welcoming, friendly feel. Lucy was so lovely, making sure we felt at home. The food was delicious and the staff...attentive and friendly. The rooms are nicely decorated with the most comfortable bed, I could have stayed forever. Continental breakfast with choice of cereals, toast, pastries and fruit. Highly recommendedMore

The rooms are really modern and well appointed, fantastic bed, (slept really well the two nights we were there). Dinner and breakfast in the bar/restaurant was excellent, particularly the vegetarian / vegan offerings. The Inn is a community run affair and the amount of time,...effort, and money really shows. In addition you can open the windows for some air from the outside (which is something we alway are looking for). The staff were very professional and friendly, and the locals were keen to talk with us about their community venture. They also kindly suggested local places to visit. Wifi was reasonable and we had no problems checking emails and the like. Will definitely visit again - really enjoyed our stay. The Inn is on the corner of the road (in the village) and the best route in is from the east from Bishops Lydeard, don’t trust the SatNav, Google doesn’t know about the narrow bridges on the road to the south :)More

Lovely well presented country pub. Friendly; welcoming staff and chef. Good selection on menu. We had wine in the outdoor area which has a large under covered area; with separate smoking area which is a really good design. Evening meal and breakfast VERY reasonably priced...for the standard being served and absolutely delicious. The room was beautiful, comfortable and spotless. Tea and coffee facility in room, TV, WiFi, walk in shower. Can't fault our stay and will definitely visit again.More
