Dining with us

Whether you are a local who wishes to relax after a long day, a tourist looking to recuperate after a long drive from another part of Britain, or anything in between: The New Dawn Inn, situated in the picturesque Cotswold’s, is an ideal place to tuck into the most delectable food, a place to refresh yourself with the loveliest drinks.

As owners who have been trading in the restaurant business for over twenty years, we pride ourselves on providing something that little bit different from the large chain venues which are dotted around the country. We use our vast experience to provide that personal touch which means so much to our customers.

Our Chefs

We make a point of employing chefs who are passionate about food and love real cooking. The New Dawn Inn has a strict policy of not using any microwavable foods. 

We make sure our customers feel like they are eating delicious home-cooked food but at a home away from home!

Every dish on our sophisticated menu is cooked from scratch by four highly-trained chefs. If a customer has special dietary requirements, we would love to know about them before your visit or at least before you order: we will do everything humanly possible to cater to your needs!

Since 2017


The New Dawn Inn was previously The Kings Head, Norton which underwent extensive renovations and re-opened in August 2017 as the New Dawn Inn. It has become one of the most stylish and popular eateries in the Cotswold area, home to a large car park and lovely garden.

But what we do, we do exceptionally well!  In short, The New Dawn Inn is primarily a relaxing environment for hard working folk and friends who need that special night off to unwind and  totally chill out for people looking to connect with old friends or to make new ones in a child free environment.
