A Beautiful Dorset evening, decided to visit the New Inn for supper. Situated in a wonderful position a short drive from Corfe, the outside very welcoming, but on walking in, a distinct smell of fried fish. Had booked a table, but had to wait till we were greeted, were then shown to our table. Was told there was no Plaice - for a Pub that is suppposed to be famous for fish!!!! We were a party of 4 and decided just to have mains - the special board stated grilled Trout with almonds. One of our party ordered the Trout and the other 3 the Black Bream with Ginger, lemon etc. stuffed. We were then told only have two portions of Bream left, OK so it was two trout and two Bream. A short while later we were told "have no Almonds" How can the dish be advertised and then have no almonds!!! We still went ahead and said OK, so no almonds it will have to be. The Trout was only OK, and the Bream definitely was very bland no taste of ginger or anything else for that matter. Yes the fish was fresh, but that was about that.
Decided to forego desserts and drive back to admire the late evening sun and enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Had been to the pub some years ago and had a very good meal. Not sure what has happened, but would not be going back again.
