A Proper Devon Pub

With proper cider & craft beer

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.

Great place, amazing food! Whilst staying in the area we wanted a nice family meal, having found The New Inn to be close by to where we were staying we booked a table. It's a bit off the beaten track but 100% worth the trip. A quaint, homely, welcoming...M pub with a traditional British pub feel. The food was to die for, incredible quality and a place I would happily return to again and again... As food lovers i can't recommend this place highly enough.
Had a fabulous lunch It was my husband's birthday today and I treated him to a nice lunch on the way to our hotel. We stopped at the new inn. Instantly greeted by 2 great hosts. We both had the fish goujons, which were cooked to perfection. Fabulous place,...M great prices and we would make the 40 minute drive out there again any day. Thank you!!
Excellent rural lunch Very pleasant lunch at the New Inn, nice venison stew and excellent popadoms with the curry, both with Sam’s cider - very nice. Good menu deserves more visits to this very nice rural pub.
Friendly local characterful pub The team at the New Inn are very friendly and welcoming - cooking all food to order with excellent attention to detail in the service. The food arrived piping hot and tasted delicious - they offer traditional uncomplicated pub food - and that’s exactly what...M we fancied.

About 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!

Destination North Devon

Our part of Devon offers experiences galore.
Consider coastal walks, golf, cycling or even surfing! Get out there and soak it all up, then return for a drink and hearty meal with us at The New Inn, Roborough.


Our nearby beaches are some of the biggest, most untouched and beautiful in England. Visit Riverside. Woolacombe, Saunton Sands and Croyde beaches for stunning views and invigorating walks!


Clinging to 400 foot cliffs, Clovelly has only donkeys and sledges for traffic on its steeply cobbled street. A stunning fishing village steeped in maritime history, visiting Clovelly is a special experience.


Inspired by the route travelled by Tarka the Otter, this 180 mile route traverses unspoiled countryside, dramatic sea cliffs and beautiful beaches, including the longest, off-road cycle path in the UK!


A dramatic U-shaped dry valley close to Lynton that runs parallel to the sea. It is well known for its feral goats roaming freely & often hair-raisingly on the jagged cliff edges.
