After closing suddenly in November 2019 then suffering a fire, the former White Heart was fully refurbished and reopened under it old name in August 2021. Inside, the layout is not much changed but the left-hand side, with an attractive balcony area, is no longer confined to restaurant use - though this is first and foremost a dining pub. The contemporary decor, mostly in shades of grey offset in places by bare brick, is restained (some might say stark) though a collection of David McKee prints livens up the walls. The New Inn advertises itself as 'an upmarket pub serving only the finest home-cooked food' - although the prices are actually pretty reasonable and reviews so far have been very favourable. Pity about the uninspiring beer choice.

Large pub near the entrance to Wentworth Castle whose interior was mostly opened out some years ago. Reopened May 2014 after extensive refurbishment. The main physical change is removal of a wall to the right of the entrance so that the dining area is now separated from the rest of the pub only by a chimney stack. The renovations are in an over-fussy shabby-chic style with a multiplicity of flooring styles, wall treatments, furnishings etc. Superficially attractive but doesn't really hang together. A pint of real ale is pricey for the area at £3.75 and two halves pricier still (£3.95). Evening food majors on steaks - a more varied menu at lunchtimes.
