A pub in Dorset has been named Inn of the Year in the Good Pub Guide 2015. The New Inn at Cerne Abbas has also been awarded the county’s Dining Pub of the Year title for the third time. The landlord, Jeremy Lee, says he's delighted and proud that The New Inn has been selected.
Jeremy believes the pub has earned its reputation as a dining pub by serving meals in a friendly and comfortable environment.
The former 16th century coaching inn has 12 bedrooms, each named after a local chalk stream, including the infamous River Piddle. It is Grade II listed and underwent a major refurbishment in 2012 in one of the biggest single refurbishment projects ever undertaken by its owner, the Bridport based Palmers brewery.
