The New Inn

Modern British

0.5 miles
14 Long Street, Cerne Abbas, DT2 7JF

This sensitively refurbished former coaching inn dates back to the 16th century, and is bursting with character. Many original features remain, including lovely mullion windows, heavy oak beams and a recovered York stone fireplace, complete with a wood burner. The well-stocked bar includes Palmers ale on traditional hand-pumps, a selection of cider and lager and a hand-picked international wine list. They also stock a wide range of spirits including 12 gins, four of which are locally sourced, and six single-malt whiskies. In warmer months head to the 50-seat courtyard, or the large walled garden where a charming apple tree takes centre stage, to enjoy a flute of sparkling Kir Royale.

The food reflects the surroundings, with traditional pub favourites featured alongside appealing modern British dishes. You might start with flaky sea bass, or perhaps crispy rabbit loin with pancetta. For mains tuck into pappardelleverde with vine tomatoes and shallot crumble, or plump for juicy chargrilled lamb rump infused with sea rosemary, paired with fresh asparagus and endive. All produce is sourced from the West Country, including local game from just a stone’s throw away. With food this good it’s no wonder The New Inn was named Palmers Brewery’s Food Pub of the Year and Wine Pub of the Year in 2017. Why not extend your stay and check into one of the 12 beautiful rooms located in the main building and the stable block?
