The New Inn
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 July 2012

The New Inn (my wife and I couldn't agree whether a hotel or a pub) is about 2 miles outside the town, and at the edge of the village of Clifford Chambers. At less than £40 via a special offer, this was really good value so near a major tourist attraction. The room was small, but had everything you wanted. An annoying feature was the bathroom light/fan, which seemed to leave one in complete darkness without warning; and meant you couldn't visit the loo or sink in the night without setting up a whirlwind.
Excellent carvery on Sunday (but the restaurant closes by 7 on Sundays, later other days). Breakfast very good and freshly cooked. Friendly local staff and ample parking. An odd quirk seems to be that you settle your bill the night before leaving!
The village of Clifford Chambers (which doesn't seem to rate a mention in the guidebooks) is well worth a visit - the main street is about half a mile long leading to the sumptuous manor house and a charming old mill with waterlilies growing thickly.
You are close enough to Stratford-o-a (an hourly bus from opposite the inn if you don't want to have to park there) but can get away from the noisy international crowds at the New Inn.

Room Tip: Probably quieter at the back

We didn't stay in the hotel but were on the attached campsite in a campervan and ate at the pub so this review is based on the campsite, pub and restaurant.

This campsite is a field next to the pub, 10 pitches with hook up and possibly more without hook up. Each of the 10 pitches has plenty of room and there is a light to each pitch. There is just 1 room with 1 toilet, 1 shower and 1 wash basin, shared by men and women so if someone is having a shower you have to wait to use the toilet! Also to get to this room you have to walk past all the rubbish and bins from the pub and left over building materials. The campsite is right next to a main road so if you are sitting outside you may get some road noise. However at £12 per night for 2 adults and 2 dogs including electric I still thought this was good value.

The pub is pleasant and it has a dining area attached that served a carvery (however this had ended by 8:30 when we came to eat) and a full menu. Many of the main courses included a visit to the salad bar, which I enjoyed. The restaurant staff were friendly and helpful and I enjoyed the food.

Because the pub includes a hotel it felt a bit like the campsite was just an extra side line and it felt like we were treated differently to other guests.

The centre of Stratford is about 3 miles away and there is a bus stop right outside the pub. However a man in the next caravan gave us a lift into Stratford and we intended to get the last bus back (7:20pm) but this bus never came so the bus service doesn't seem very reliable.

Had a lovely two night stay at this hotel with my wife. We had a ground floor room which was of a fair size and very neat and tidy. The dining areas were very pleasant and we thought the food was of a very good standard. The bar area was that of an old fashioned pub which we thought was great but a little quiet during our stay.
The hotel is in a peaceful village just a few minutes drive from the centre of stratford.
Finally the staff are very hard working and attentive and go about their work efficiently but with a smile on their faces.

Room Tip: Maybe the rooms that are seperate though attached to the main building might obviously be quieter th...

Wonderful hotel with really friendly staff, we stayed for 2 nights 9th March and nothing was too much trouble for them, Resturant was really good too we had dinner in there Friday and Saturday nights and being vegetarian and fussy the guys could not do enough to help me find what I wanted to eat even though it was not one the menu.
A bus stop outside the hotel takes you to Stratford in about 20 mins and goes about every hour.
On the Saturday lunch trip we went on the Contessa of Evesham dining experience boat trip along the river and although it sounds a little expensive @ £26.00 each you get a 3 course meal and a wonderfulexperience again with the guys on the boat nothing was too much trouble for you. Would recomend everyone to do this trip was wonderfull 3 hours of bliss.

Stayed for one Saturday night in January and thought the New Inn was excellent value and we had a very enjoyable stay. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. We would have liked to have eaten a evening meal in the restaurant as the menu looked great but unfortunately we had a table booked at another restaurant. If I was being picky I would say the décor in the rooms was a little drab. Great location, excellent value and great staff, will go back, next time having a evening meal!

Stayed Saturday night, very cold night but lovely and warm in the Inn by the log burner. Tried the carvery which surpassed all expectations, best food I have eaten out in a long while.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, all you could ask of a place really.

Just spent one night here on the way to a family gathering, The room was very modern and the en suite seemed brand new, The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
Very friendly atmosphere and only a few miles to stratford center.
Carvery was excellent and the breakfast was spot on, We will return in the summer months and would recommend this little piece of England to anyone who likes a real pint and a log fire.
Thank you to all the staff
