The Ostrich Inn in the heart of Newland is the centre of village life. It is a free house with a wide range of well-kept Real Ales and a reputation for excellent food.

Although the 13th century building was originally constructed to house the workers who built the Church of All Saints, Newland opposite, its exact age as a pub is unknown.

The Ostrich does not have accommodation but there are plenty of local Bed & Breakfast establishments.

The pub’s unusual name is believed to have come from the Ostrich emblem used by the Probyn family, medieval local landowners and benefactors of the Church. The Probyns were successful maritime merchants and their ships all bore the Ostrich figurehead. All over the world the “Ostrich” meant the Probyns from Newland. Perhaps the public house adopted the symbol hoping they would become as famous as the Probyns!

Nowadays the Probyns are not so well known, but the Ostrich Inn is. This is a traditional country pub so it does not keep metropolitan hours. It is open 7 days a week with restricted hours.
