Finding this gem on our holiday is such a blessing. Great atmosphere, nicely furnished, car parking and beer garden. Bar area very dog friendly and serves same food as the restaurant section. This is a traditional friendly village pub serving really great food, reasonably priced, in a charming off the beaten track village called Halse, not far from Taunton. Easy drive to / from Dunster and surrounding area. If you really want to find a great old fashioned pub with modern amenities and great service then this is it. They have no idea how good they are!

The New Inn is a warm and welcoming pub situated in a beautiful village called Halse. Overall this was a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday. Although busy the food was fantastic and the service was second to none. During our short visit for a Sunday lunch we felt at home thanks to the bar manager Annette who not only provided top service but also with a smile. The food was well above our expectations and apparently this was due to a new chef. We will be sure to visit again!

A very disappointing episode. My good friend and I arrived expecting a very pleasant country pub meal. The place was tatty - old and tired - both inside and outside. They had no chicken so when I ordered Moroccan Chicken I was told that the chicken hadn't been delivered! A group of 10 people had booked and just arrived and so we were told we'd have to wait at least half an hour for our meal. A very negative experience. We moved on to somewhere else and had a delicious meal.

This inn has a great history. Initially a slaughterhouse, then a coach house, it became an inn in the mid 1700's so you can imagine the feel of the old English pub. The staff were friendly and accommodating, and the manager had a good sense of humour believing that the poms are going to win the ashes this season. The rooms were well presented and full English breakfast in the morning was delicious. I would highly recommend a stay at this Inn
