The New Inn
400 years of rustic charm
Tucked amongst the rambling hedgerows of England’s fabled cider country, The New Inn has matured into something of a destination pub, jealously shared with pathfinders by its chocolate-box village of Roborough.
Specialising in delightfully honest food, washed down with local craft beers & ciders, we prefer the unhurried quality of surrounding farms and independent producers to do the talking.
With a real ale accredited by CAMRA, The New Inn was also crowned CAMRA ‘North Devon Cider Pub of the Year’ twice in a row, and prides itself on championing uncompromised flavours of the region.

RUGGED devon FLAVOURS with us
Greetings from new landlords at the Roborough pub, Tim & Nutcha!
We recently refurbished the New Inn to upgrade our kitchen, bar and heating, together with improvements to the menu and beverage selection.
More ‘rustic family-run pub’ than ‘gastro’, this shows in our authentic decor, homemade food, local beverage, prices, and even the banter with guests. Plus we love experimenting with ideas for our entertainment & menus, so while seeking to source ethically where possible, suggestions are most welcome! Bear in mind: our cooking is fresh to order, and we only serve what we would put on our own table.
If you love your ales, we keep our beer well and the range interesting! But if you do ever fancy something different, Nutcha will be happy to muddle up fresh & professionally-made cocktails – somewhat of a rarity in North Devon!
There’s definitely enough excuses to visit, so please join us for a roast lunch, an acoustic jam session, one of our quiz nights, theme parties – or just a proper glass of something refreshing by our open fire. We can’t wait to meet you!
Please visit our Facebook page for regular updates about our food, entertainment schedule and much more!
