New Inn

Picture source: Andy Earl


The New Inn was situated on Castle Street. This was a famous old public house once owned by Lion Breweries of Winchester, one of six in Portchester. It was famous for being covered with ivy and was also known as the Ivy House. At one time the ivy penetrated the thick walls and grew all around the inside walls of the famous Ivy Room. After closing down as a public house it became a private residence for a time before becoming a tea room in the 1920's. Later it became a private residence again and the owners decided to have all the ivy removed, a decision which upset many of the older residents.
