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.

Will definitely be back!

Went for Sunday lunch. Great choice, lovely food. Would recommend the scallops ! Very pleasant atmosphere. Friendly staff. Will definitely be back

First meal out since lockdown

First meal out since lockdown was eased and so glad we chose to visit New Dawn Inn. We’ve dined there many times before, but were so impressed with everything tonight. Tables arranged with social distancing in mind, hand sanitiser available as you enter and clear cleaning of door handles apparent throughout. Staff all wearing face masks and service very professional as always. The food! I cannot rave enough about the belly pork dish. Absolutely amazing. My husband chose the Wagyu burger which he thoroughly enjoyed, but he had food envy when he tasted my pork. Visit here, you will not


As tourists in the area, we visited last night as our very first trip to a pub for a meal since the pandemic started. Food was delicious, especially the ribs and pork medallions special. Staff friendly and efficient. Set up felt safe. Thank you!

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.
