In the heart of Gloucester, the 15th-century New Inn features a medieval courtyard, real ale pub and free Wi-Fi. There is also a traditional restaurant with period features. Beautifully restored, The New Inn Hotel offers cozy rooms, many with exposed beams and original features. All rooms have a private bathroom, tea and coffee facilities and a TV.
The Grill Restaurant serves a lunchtime carvery and British lunch and dinner menu in charming surroundings. The New Inn has 4 bars, including the award-winning Tap & Barrel Bar, offering up to 10 cask ales. There is also a coffee shop with homemade cake and specialty teas. The Regency Suite can accommodate up to 80 people available for weddings or other events.
The ancient courtyard has galleries on all sides, and the historic building was used by pilgrims visiting the tomb of Kind Edward 11 in the Abbey (now Gloucester Cathedral), which is just 985 ft away. Eastgate and King's Walk Shopping Centres are just 2 minutes’ walk away, and Gloucester Train station is a 5-minute walk.

Did you Know?.... Beatrix Potter used a sketch of a widow at the New Inn in The Tailor of Gloucester?Children's Menu
The courtyard has been a popular gathering place since mediaeval times. We are fairly sure that William Shakespeare's company - The Lord Chamberlain's Men - performed here and it was from our gallery that the unfortunate Lady Jane Grey was proclaimed queen. In the 17th & 18th centuries we became a coaching inn and stagecoaches would arrive through the front arch. There were stables to the rear and horses were looked after here as recently as the early 1950s.
In the 1960s and 70s the Berni brothers changed the face of dining out in the UK forever. Previouly the general public had used restaurants only for very special occasions but Berni Inns brought inexpensive dining to the masses. The combination of prawn cocktail, steak and Black Forest gateau became synonymous with steakhouses accross the land! The New Inn was one of the very first, and last, Berni Inns. We still serve a mean steak!
Gloucester's rich history and heritage are just moments from the new inn hotel, with wonderful medieval sites such as St. Oswald's Priory,Gloucester quays,and the famous Kingsholme rugby stadium there's something for all the family.
