The New Inn on Mount Lane in Eype is this year’s recipient of the Bridport and Lyme Regis News Pub of the Year, voted for by its loyal customers.
Licensees Val and Gordon Kavanagh have now been running the New Inn for three and a half years. The dog-friendly pub boasts a stunning beer garden with views overlooking the picturesque valley and rolling hills beyond. The pub is at the heart of the community and has many loyal customers that keep coming back for their great food, great atmosphere and live music.
Fresh, locally sourced fish is served at the venue every single day, whether it’s a crab ploughman’s, hake steak or a monkfish wrapped in pesto and smoked bacon. They also serve an extensive menu of home cooked food sourced from local suppliers.
Gordon said: “We are just gobsmacked that people voted for us. It’s a nice, friendly pub and we have a cracking team. We are just over the moon with our win, and we hope we can do it again next year” and Val said: “We are so, so proud as a team for winning this award. It makes all the hard work we do all do worthwhile.”
