My Scout group were hiring a canal boat for the weekend over the 1-3rd September. On the Saturday afternoon we discovered all the gas bottles were empty! Forced... to buy food at a restaurant instead of cooking the ingredients we had already bought, we contacted The New Inn. They said they would help us out, although there was only space outside. This was no problem since we all wanted to eat - and eat we did. Each of the 11 meals were of a good size and excellent quality; everyone was very happy with their food. The best bit? We got 11 meals for £100.60 (excluding drinks).

Summary: 11 quality meals in good portions for £100.60. Excellent on every front! I will be returning :)

Meet here once a month with friends. My wife only wanted a starter to be brought out with the main meal and was told quite clearly that that was impossible? The... reason being is that was the clear instruction from the chef that they bring starters out first followed by the main course. My wife ordered a main meal so she could eat with the rest of us and only ate a quarter of it. Not very good attitude and need to be more adaptable to customers needs. Whoever is the landlord needs to have a word or even change the chef. See More

Bit of a disappointment to report today pub wise. Met up with relies from Australia for lunch, they fly home tonight so hoped for a good experience at a pub we ...have enjoyed before. So, met at 'The New Inn', top of Long Buckby flight, on the GU, just south of junction with the Leicester Line of the GU. Drinks ordered, chose meals and ordered, to find later that my wife's starter order, which was required to come out with the mains as she only has a small appetite, had to come out first, followed by our mains when she had finished! Not happy as it is not difficult, even at a busy service to meet the requested. No reason was given, just told it was 'policy'. Asked to speak to the chef, refused to speak and said, via the bar person " If you don't want the starter the money will be refunded". Wrong answer! Result was, we waited some 45 minutes for the starter and near another half hour for the mains to follow. The food was fine, but unfortunately the attitude was poor, with no idea on customer service. We were not alone in this as another table was treated just as poorly. In fairness to the front of house staff, one bar person also waiting table, they were greatly understaffed on what was forecast days ago to be a warm and potentially busy lunchtime. My advice is to stop either at Braunston, Stowe Hill, or Bugbrooke and give this place a miss, as will we. See More

Me and my husband popped in for something to eat as we was passing the pub, it looked nice from the outside. The barmaid had no manners didn't ask if I wanted i...ce and didn't offer lime in the corona, we looked at the menu. I had a mix grill and he had a pie, when it come out it looked nice, I started to eat it and couldn't make out what cut the stake was and wasn't how I asked it to be cooked, well done as opposed to medium. Gammon wasn't cooked properly so I didn't eat it. My husband had stout and steak pie, looked lovely but when cut into was mainly gravy and the steak inside wasn't very nice. Plates still full and the server came over to ask if we were finished! At this point we just said yes, got up and left! Definitely wouldn't return. See More

Very nice friendly pub. Food VG however I had faggots and peas and one of the faggots was not very nice as it was like concrete on the outside and very hard to ...cut. I complained but there was no response from the kitchen.. But three out of four meals was excellent and I would definitely go back there again, In a beautiful setting alongside a Canal lock and lovely walks in the area See More

Only place to visit for Sunday lunch. Piping hot food, large portions and hot plates. Service is great and on a warm day it is lovely to sit by the canal. Been... here so many times I think we have tried everything on the menu and never had one complaint.
18 of us went for my 40th birthday celebration also. Was made to feel very welcome and all the food came out at the same time and was lovely.
Best pub in the area for food.

Lovely friendly staff, very nice atmosphere and decoration. Right next to the locks and canal so it's lovely to sit out in the sun and watch the boats go by. Ho...t food is really nice. Never had a problem with any of the meals compared to some other well known chains! It's become our regular pub now. See More
