St John’s Wood locals are flocking to the refurbished New Inn along Allitsen Road for a taste of gastropub refinement just a short walk from the High Street and Regent's Park. Visitors from across London are finding that a swift half or a full pub lunch at The New Inn is the perfect way to start or wind down a day at Lord’s Cricket Ground. But there’s more. The New Inn also hosts regular live music and jazz afternoons, and the determined can even stay the night in this modern British pub’s five elegantly furnished boutique hotel rooms.
The new New Inn began life in 2011, when former Savoy Group landlord Nick Tyrie
and a few plucky lads decided to take over this classic British corner public house
along Allitsen Road in St John’s Wood and give it the gastropub refit. The result is a
superior drinking and dining establishment, convenient to London’s Lord’s cricket
ground and the beautiful Regent's Park. Classic pub fare like burgers and fries, and
fish and chips, are here in abundance – though several notches above average. The
New Inn’s Sunday roast is a local fixture, with lamb, beef, pork, and chicken matched
with a selection of fine old and new world wines. Spicy types get their fix midweek
with the Wednesday Curry Night, while the expert chefs mix it up every Thursday
with a weekly special menu.
The New Inn has, naturally, a reliable selection of beers and real English ales on tap, ready to be hand-pulled and savoured in this refurbished pub’s warm interior or outside on sunny days. The luxurious selections on the menu are best matched with a glass or two from the extensive wine list, but this St John’s Wood gastropub’s best kept secret is its ever- expanding cocktail menu. Upscale London cocktail bars are not the only place that do a mean mix, and The New Inn’s signature rivals Soho’s best – a float of Sailor Jerry spiced rum, Koko Kanu, Cambord, peach puree, and pineapple juice. Feeling like you’ve got ahead of yourself? No problem – The New Inn’s Allitsen Road premises double as a boutique hotel, with five stylish rooms here for you, complete with a continental or English breakfast when you wake.
Excellent dinner and super friendly service. Took my pug, Ziggy to meet Izzy, one of the resident dogs but she wasn’t there. Good excuse to come I suppose!
Friendly services and decent food. Live jazz was amazing! Dog friendly. Spent a pleasant Sunday afternoon having Sunday roast and a couple of drinks there.
Really good food and drinks, lovely staff and we had a great time on New Years. Would recommend and definitely go back. Also really cute dogs!
