Nestling between the Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, The New Inn is an 18th century former coaching inn that offers the complete country village pub experience. Situated in the quaint village of Halse, we are just five miles from the Somerset county town of Taunton and only 10 minutes walk from the famous West Somerset Railway! The North Somerset coast is just 30 minutes away. The New Inn provides a great spot for lunch or dinner, accompanied by a glass of wine from the extensive wine cellar or a pint of West Country real ale. We pride ourselves on the wide variety of fresh fish, meat and game – and our friendly service. At the New Inn, you'll find a warm, inviting and relaxed atmosphere - a true countryside escape. So why not join us for a relaxing weekend, or a longer stay to take advantage of the many countryside activities that Somerset has to offer?
