A real hidden gem this place is, out of view from the main A35 road which is probably for the best as it would be packed or a rip off if it wasn't.
Lovely thatched roofed pub and the garden is fantastic with lots of shady areas.
We had a ploughmans lunch which was very good at only £5.25.
The drinks were a good price too with the usual Palmers ales on and good prices on wine.
This is one of the best pubs in the area and by far the cheapest Palmers brewery pub we have been in.
Well worth a visit.

Still very pleasant but "choked" at £3.80 for an admittedly brilliant pint of Tally Ho. good job it wasn't my round!

The New Inn is an attractive white washed country pub with a thatched roof located in the village of Kilmington, just off the main A35.

It's a long room with a small bar area at the front which leads through to a larger food orientated area. A basic lunchtime menu is offered, with a more substantial evening menu. The pub is cosy and comfortably furnished throughout and traditionally decorated. Note in particular, the large Trafalgar Way framed print showing the route from Falmouth to the Admiralty in London that a messenger took in 1805 to announce Nelson's death. We learn that the journey took 37 hours and passed by the village of Kilmington.

A large pleasant grassy garden contains several willow trees and a bird aviary.

It's a Palmers pub, but it's not badged externally as such, although we do see an old enamel sign by the entrance advertising the delights of "Palmers High Class Mineral Waters".

The pub is one of only a handful to have been in every edition to date of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and the plaques denoting 25,30 and 35 consecutive years are displayed just inside the entrance. A few GBG stickers are in the windows - I suppose there isn't room for all 37 !. I was informed that the current landlord, Brian, has been in situ for nearly 20 of those 37 years.

On my recent lunchtime visit, a decent ploughman's lunch was enjoyed, along with good pints of Copper Ale and Best Bitter at � 2.65p and � 2.80p respectively. A third, stronger beer, Dorset Ale, was on.

This is an attractive Devon village pub, well worth a detour

Very nice pub, well run, clean and well kept range of Palmers beers. Wine range a bit limited but perfectly OK.

Good bunch of lacals and no riff raff tolerated. I like it a lot.
