25 Years Of Serving The Finest Food At The Finest Price.

We’re situated on the A38 between Tewkesbury, Gloucester and Cheltenham in the village of Norton. 

Our philosophy is all about fresh food expertly prepared. Whatever the occasion, you will always find a warm and friendly welcome when you visit us.

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 five 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 Food

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.

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!

Our History

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.

Anniversary meal

Thought we would brave it to support a good local business especially as we run our own family local business and we class sue and Martin and the team as friends. We felt this would be a safe place in these strange times and were not disappointed along with the usual quality of food and service. I would strongly recommend that you support them as they really deserve it.

Absolutely fantastic!

Been to the New Dawn many times. But this was a first family meal out post lockdown. Absolutely fantastic! Felt completely safe and we have been quite nervous. Not only that the food was outstanding and better than I ever remembered. Thoroughly enjoy ourselves and will return again soon.

Food was exceptional

Had lunch there today. Food was exceptional, staff were attentive and friendly, as we have always experienced. Excellent maintenance of hygiene and cleanliness, felt very safe dining at the New Dawn Inn and so pleased that you’re open again.

Oh my! How we’ve missed you!

Finally plucked up the courage to actually go out for something to eat. First time since lockdown. We had a table booked for 2 days after lockdown and were gutted we couldn’t go. As we’ve had such wonderful food in the past here and the staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful we felt safe to return knowing that they wouldn’t put their patrons at risk. It was so nice and assuring to have the sanitisers available at the door and for the seating to be well laid out to social distancing measures. Staff wore face masks which we really

My wife and I decided to go for lunch at your pub today. Firstly and most importantly, your approach to being covid secure was just amazing. We are a family of NHS workers and to see the lengths you have taken to make people safe was wonderful to see. Throughout the pandemic we have worked in a number of clinical settings including ITU. It must be hard working in your environment wearing masks, but I would like to congratulate all of you. I wish you all the success and I hope your business goes from strength to strength. The food
