Had my first glass of ale at the bar--the local brew and it was excellent. Then enjoyed dinner with husband and in-laws. The meals were excellent. My husband and I enjoyed the short ribs. Wonderful dessert pudding.More

Took my dear old mum here for Sunday lunch. It was a pleasant surprise to see a simple menu with that we had little difficulty to choose from. We had a traditional roast and it was excellent. I will defiantly go again.

Five of us ate here on a Saturday evening, and the food for both the carnivores and the non-meat-eaters alike was first class, much better than one would expect from what is still very much a "village pub", complete with muddy-wellington-wearing farmers. The service was...More

Visiting relatives in Halse and went to the New Inn as we often do when down this way. Lovely atmosphere and welcoming host. Very tempting and varied menu. We had the Beef and Beer casserole with herb scones. Beautiful, delicious and real depth of flavour.
