Thank you - we now have confirmation that the mooring charge, at least in the summer months, and possibly other busy times,  will be £15 at the New Inn.

Fully respect everyone's opinion and of course those who wish to pay up are free to do so. I think what we are talking about here is the bigger picture,  and what people see as the rights and wrongs of such charges.  For me personally I might consider a £15 mooring charge so as to spend the afternoon and overnight on a mooring in Horning once in a while  but I wouldn't be patronising the New Inn for our meal.  Unless of course Amberman you can confirm that the charge and the booking for a mooring was only taken on the basis that you were also booking a table for dining ?

As I said before if you are on holiday then these one-off charges can be seen as part of your holiday "spends"  but if you are a local boatowner and this is, or rather was, your pub of choice when on the water for meals then that £15 every visit becomes quite expensive! I suppose in the end it's what has happened in many holiday destinations whereby the tourists will pay anything and then the locals are effectively pushed out.  Many places in Cornwall for example are nothing more than a ghost town out of season,  with both homes and businesses really being there to serve the tourist industry only .  Let's hope the New Inn can manage to run profitably without local boaters support.  I suppose they will because they'll be ripping off the tourist ...

We visited the New Inn by car between Christmas and New Year and have to say the cost of the food was competitive. If I had paid £15 to moor for the night there and had value for money in the pub then I would not begrudge paying the fee in addition to the food cost.
Everyone will have there own opinion on this and there is no simple answer here but at the end of the day as long as the pub continues to trade profitably then surely it is better to have this than no pub at all.

Never been a fan of the new inn personally and didn't use it when it was free, can't see anything changing then...

As a 12 months of the year boater just like the Ferry Inn if my custom in the summer is not valued they wont get it in the winter months when customers are few and far between.

I think that holiday makers in the UK are in for a bit of a shock this year.

A pint of bitter and a glass of wine on the Broads recently cost £12.25, and prices seem to be going up by the week.

I have not compared boat hire charges, but it is looking very expensive once you get here.

That seem a bit on the steep side...
Never mind I'm just off to spoons with all the other morons who like to pay under a 5er for a Guinness and a pint of bitter
Happy days...

Respect Dezign.
Do what you want. Do what you feel happy with, content, able to enjoy. Happy for others to do what they wish to do. It is none of my business, and may I suggest that you feel the same. I hope, I think we are of a same.

My wife and I turn up at the New Inn, it will cost me £15.00 to moor for a pint and perhaps a meal.
On the other hand, a ten berth holiday boat moors up, they too will be expected to pay £15.00, probably out of a shared kitty. I can only guess but I expect that the New Inn has decided on its target market, and it looks as if it excludes the likes of me and mine. Oh well, back to The Locks!

I know its been a few months since the last post in this topic so I was wondering if anyone can confirm the mooring charges at the New Inn? We are down in July and just trying to decide where our overnights will be.

I'm afraid I can't speak personally as the pub is no longer a spot to visit for us based on the policy. The last 3 weeeknds we've been down we've used other places I'm afraid.

However, a chap who moors in our cut did say they had been charged , as outlined in this thread. I suppose your best bet is to ring the pub with a date and mooring booking request, and you will get a definitive answer for that specific time.
