Description
Nestled in the Dorset village of Shipton Gorge a few miles east of Bridport, the New Inn is a traditional village pub and beer garden managed and run by the local community. Whether you live round the corner or are visiting the area, the New Inn offers everything you could want from a village pub - a warm welcome, a gorgeous building with bags of character, top quality food and drink (including pristine Cask Marque ales) and a real community feel. With the Jurassic Coastline as a backdrop, many guests call at the New Inn for refreshments and food, whilst navigating the lovely countryside and network of paths that the parish has to offer.
