The New Inn
Ranked #8 of 13 Sandwich B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 December 2012

I would like to say what a great place the New Inn is. We had a lovely Christmas Eve drink listening to excellent music from Miss Sara Banks. The staff are friendly and full of fun. There was no one being loud or miss behaving. Its a breath of fresh air to find somewhere with high standards that every age can enjoy.

The New Inn has two sides to it: it is very clean, the rooms are well appointed (their towels would beat most 5 star hotels !!), the TVs are more up-to-date than I have ever seen in a similar hotel. BUT the live music in the pub will keep you awake until 11 p.m. The counter strategy of spending time in the pub is not really recommended - time has stood still in the pub. There's not a single craft beer on tap, all the big well-known brands only (Guinness, Carlsberg etc). Music is also dated. Time hasn't stood still for its punters, unfortunately. Bit of a time warp. Breakfast was ok, friendly waitress. Food had been under the 'warming lamp' too long, looked a bit shrivelled, and a little in need of TLC.

After a long day walking we got back at 9.30 in the evening tired and ready for a bath/shower, quiet read then sleep. Had to be up again at 06.00 next morning. Got to the room, it was virtually vibrating with noise from a band in the bar below. When we asked we were told it would go on until 11.00. When we questioned the staff were told - "it is a pub you know".

Strongly recommend when booking to ask what nights they have a band playing if you want to go to sleep earlier than 11.00 pm.

You couldn't find a friendlier bunch of people in a very quintessential English pub in the quaint little town of Sandwich. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and any needs we had were met with a smile and no problem, including doing our washing....no charge!!!!! A very comfortable and clean room (we overlooked the front street) completed what was a most enjoyable stay during the Queens Jubilee weekend. Highly reccomment this little pub, great people, accommodation and food.

We stayed for 3 nights and would definitely stay here again. The rooms are comfortable, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. The staff and extremely helpful and very friendly. Good breakfasts and a view of the Guildhall. What more could you want?

We stayed for a bank holiday and were struck by the cleanliness of the rooms and the size and lightness of the bathroom. The shower was very weedy though. Downstairs was a fairly friendly local. The music stopped at 10.30 on a Sunday, but there was a karaoke singer coming through loud and clear in the early evening. The breakfast was passable but nothing special. There was not a lot wrong with it, it's just that 80 quid was a bit steep for what it was. But that seems to be the going rate in Sandwich.
