The quality and variety of beer on offer here was so good that we remained here for far longer than intended before embarking on the town riverside walk. 9 handpulls from 5 breweries, namely Coach House Farriers Best and Blueberry, Eagles Crag Jester, Moorhouse's White Witch. Pride of Pendle and Blonde Witch, Saltaire Blonde, Goose Eye Chinook and Black Moor. Traditional yet characterful with a number of drinking rooms and some of the locals were quite happy to chat.

Just back from a visit to lancashire for the first time and was happy to find this pub. Excellent ales and well kept. The place has a cozy and comfortable feel to it. We chatted with others visiting the place and came away with the impression this is the best pub in town. I tried all four ales on at the time and each was equally fine.

If you find yourself in Clitheroe, this is the first place to stop for a pint. You will likely be there longer than you planned. I know I did, just wish I had more time to spend there.

Went in because it's in the Good Beer Guide. Had a well-kept pint of Gunpowder mild and a couple of tasty pints of bitter. The locals were a little bit off-putting - they'd obviously known each other for donkey's years, but didn't know me, so were rather stand-offish. But on the whole, well worth a visit.

Came here with a couple of friends the other month. Turned out to be the best one in Clitheroe. Ample amount of handpumps along with a real cider. Average prices. The quality of the beer was excellent.

What made the visit most pleasing was the various rooms with their oldie worldy originality. Outside drinkers were well looked after with the pub boasting a seating area at the front to watch life go by in the town. It also offered a very spacious area at the back of the pub which offered scenic views of the surrounding countryside.

Locals seemed a bit stand off (ish) at first, but seemed to open up after chatting with them etc.

The first of 3 pubs we sampled in Clitheroe and easily the best. The New Inn is a traditional town pub with 3 rooms. 1 of the 2 rooms at the front is simply decorated and has access to the bar. The other is more cosy, but has no bar access. The rear room is also simply decorated and is the best place to view the beer selection. It's also the room where most of the locals seem to congregate. The landlord seems to take pride in his beers and there are 9 handpulls. On our visit, he had Coach House Farriers Bitter, Gunpowder Mild & Lemon, Prospect Whatever, Moorhouses Pride of Pendle, Blond Witch & Premier Bitter, Bank Top Barley To Beer & Bowland Pheasant Plucker & Farmer Jack. Recommended if you're ever in Clitheroe and fairly near to the castle.
