The New Inn

The New Inn is an old Georgian coaching house dating back to the 1720’s, situated on a crossroads in the centre of the picturesque village of Thornton Dale. It’s character has been preserved with exposed wooden beams and open fireplaces being predominant features. In winter, a roaring log fire keeps you warm in our cosy bar, whilst in summer you can enjoy an ice cold drink in our sunny courtyard beer garden. Our restaurant seats 35 and our tasty homemade meals are also available in the bar and beer garden. We are proud to hold the Cask Marque award for our three handpulls which feature a wide variety of real ales so there is always a different tipple to try. If you wish to stay a bit longer than just for a drink or meal, we offer 6 en-suite letting rooms and also a self-catering holiday cottage. We are family friendly and dogs are welcome in the bar, beer garden and holiday cottage.

The New Inn is situated on a crossroads in the centre of the picturesque village of Thornton Dale. We have on-site parking in our car park to the rear of the pub and are ideally situated to explore both Thornton Dale itself and the wider surroundings. Located in the North York Moors National Park, Thornton is a picture perfect village with a collection of pretty cottages including the iconic thatched cottage, fields and woodland, village green, a gently meandering stream and duck pond. It has a mini-supermarket, newsagent/general store, post office, pharmacy, bakery, and a whole host of local shops.

Susan and Andy took over The New Inn in July 2013. Susan is from Thornton Dale originally and spent the first 19 years of her life living just down the road from The New Inn. After moving to Lancaster, she met Andy – originally from London – when they were working together at a busy city centre pub/restaurant, Susan as bar manager and Andy as head chef. Moving back to Thornton in 2011 after taking 6 months out to go travelling around Asia, Australia, New Zealand & Fiji, they were looking to buy a business of their own in the local vicinity. Taking a job at The New Inn whilst looking, Susan discovered that the owners were looking to sell and things fell into place!
