The service here is friendly, the atmosphere is lovely. The food is well presented and of good quality. Portions are good, to the extent we could not fit a sweet in. Very reasonably priced, which will mean a return visit soon.

I have always rated the New Dawn Inn and still cannot fault them whatsoever on their food. The Norton Lamb is simply delicious and I have no complaints on that side whatsoever. However last night, I left feeling more like a hassle than a valued...More

A very warm welcome awaits you to what was once the
Kings Head situated in the village of Norton
situated on the A38 between
Tewkesbury and Gloucester.
The Kings Head ceased trading in 2011
and was totally refurbished during the early months of 2017
and re opened in August 2017 as the
New Dawn Inn
It was decided to give the old name a rest and start
with a new fresh beginning
A new Dawn.
 The proprietors have quite a bit of experience
in the trade, having run restaurants and bars in Gloucestershire for well over 20 very successful years.
We employ 4 highly trained chefs (not cooks)
who are deeply passionate about what they produce and our head chef coming from a
4 star Cheltenham hotel.
