Description: You are closer than you think to wonderful home cooked food, great ales and fantastic company. Justin and Julia look forward to welcoming you to the friendliest of village free houses in rural Goodleigh, North Devon. We specialise in high quality home cooked pub fare, with traditional British favourites offered alongside exotic dishes from further afield. Relax in charming surroundings whilst sampling well kept ales that have had us listed in the Good Beer Guide for 3 years running. If you like trying something different our menu board is always changing to incorporate seasonal local meats, fish and vegetables. We can accommodate all needs, from a romantic table for two, family parties, or just about anything you had in mind.

“More than just pub food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

We recently visited the pub for dinner during a visit for work, it was receommended by colleagues and was worth the visit, The pub was lovely with a great traditional setting. The variety of options on the menu was excellent and everything was freshly cooked to perfection. All of us enjoyed the food and the bar staff were very friendly. Food is reasonably priced for the high quality offered. I look forward to my next visit.

“Traditional Devon pub with non-traditional style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We ate here one evening in mid-October 2013. W\e arrived before the rest of our group who had actually made the booking but were received by the landlord with a hearty welcome aand a couple of drinks to go "on the tab". The "spepcials" were chalked up on a blackboard and the landlady/chef very enthusiastically described their merits. I had the Tropical Pork Loin for my main course but it was not all that exciting. The others were happy with their choices. Four of us each had Starter, Main Course and Dessert which together with two goodish bottle so wine came in at under £100. Try it!

“Steaks cooked to perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

So rare to find a restaurant that understands and produces the correct steak, mine was medium and came medium, my husband's was medium to well done and came exactly as asked! No music or television to detract from the wonderful atmosphere of this village inn - well worth a visit!

“You must try this wonderful pub! Best in N. Devon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic lunch here today. As usual the food, service and atmosphere was second to none. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and most importantly the food is FABULOUS! We are pretty picky- we like home cooked, delicious food in generous portions and that's exactly what you get at the New Inn. I can't recommend it highly enough. Try it, you'll love it!
