Probably the oldest pub in the Forest!


An ancient pub in the Forest of Dean & the Wye Valley

The Ostrich Inn is a charming and ancient pub situated in Newland, a beautiful village that lies on the western edge of the Forest of Dean and in the Wye Valley, both areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Come visit us, everyone is welcome! We offer some of the best local ales, food, and the best pub garden in the area! 


We are a family run pub, serving real ales.
Everyone is welcome!

Come in and enjoy real ales from local brewers and good locally sourced food (dogs, children, walking boots and bikes are welcome but optional!)

Cyclists & Walkers 

We love cyclists and walkers too. We know how annoying it can be if you don't have a safe space to lock up your bike- so you can use our pub garden. Shortly, we will have bike racks - keep an eye on our social!

We will try our best to cater to everyone's needs and be as inclusive as possible.


Since we are a 17th Century pub, wheelchair access is challenging at this time. If you have specific accessibility needs and would like to know more, please give us a call on
+44 (0)1594 833260 or email us at


Locally sourced ingredients & delicious seasonal dishes are our speciality

Our dishes use the best ingredients sourced locally and are prepared on site by our chef, Nicola, and are cooked to order. 


Our menu changes regularly so please check back here for updates.  Deserts change weekly so here we have provided a sample menu.


We aim to be as inclusive as possible through our veggie, vegan, and gluten-free options. Contact us if you would like to know more!

Our beers & ales are from the best breweries in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire & Monmouthshire,
