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.

Went here for a family birthday bash - 11 of us in total. The hosts could not be more accommodating, taking into account a couple of our family with dietary needs. The food was glorious, and in abundance and good value! The menu is extensive and love the fact its freshly cooked and locally sourced. We are off here again in 2 weeks for another birthday celebration. Roll on!

Called in for lunch on a friend's recommendation. The pub was warm and inviting on a very cold day. There was a good selection on offer and the landlord was more than happy to discuss the options before we ordered. My husband chose the belly pork which he enjoyed and I had the haddock and leek dish which was also very enjoyable. Both came with a good selection of vegetables and also chips. There was far more than we could eat but it was all very well cooked. I would recommend a visit and we will return.

Gave this pub a try for a family meal after not visiting it for many years - even though we live locally.

It is a nice, typically Devon village pub with vehicle parking at the rear. This is a little narrow to access, but there's also adjoining unrestricted roadside parking,

Our host was welcoming and we were offered an extensive blackboard menu with plenty of choice and a good range of local produce - all freshly cooked by the proprietors.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, a splendid meal with plentiful food and convivial atmosphere. Certainly nobody left hungry!

Heartily recommended for excellent food, good value for money and we shall undoubtedly be returning!

We wanted to try somewhere different for a change and after reading the reviews opted for the New Inn. We were very impressed with the informal but professional customer service and fantastic menu. The only problem was, what to order. Cod Mornay and Pheasant was so tasty and the deserts were fab. Next time we want to try some starters. Definitely worth a visit - thank you The New Inn, really great night xx
