The New Inn – Coln St Aldwyns, Gloucestershire
By | 1 month ago
Baz & Fred, childhood friends and food duo, first hit headlines for their cracking pizzas in Flat Iron and Brixton Market. The Stump, a pub-turned-cool-foodie-bolthole in Foss Cross followed in 2019. Then, a year later, followed The New Inn, an ivy-clad 16th century coaching inn, in the picturesque village of Coln St Aldwyns. This atmospheric pub was an instant hit with muddy-booted locals and those in search for quintessential Cotswolds. The rustic yet refined restaurant with exposed stone walls, flagstone floors and beamed ceilings delivers over and above too. Mouth-watering, juicy burgers take pride of place on the seasonal menu alongside a seductive selection of constantly evolving small plates and main dishes for the non-burger lovers. The pub serves its own IPA beer from nearby brewery Deya plus classic cocktails (it does a smashing negroni), which you can enjoy on the sun-soaked terrace or by the fire in the local’s bar inside. This pub is the perfect place for people who are looking to stay in an actual pub, not a hotel pretending to be one.
