Truman's Brewery took over The Newman Arms in May 2018 after this historic pub had been closed for over a year. The first pub the new Truman's Brewery have opened, this is a haven for beer lovers. As a successful, independent craft brewer, we  know what it takes to make a great pub.

The Newman has 12 keg and 4 cask lines, featuring ourselves and a variety of rotating guest beers. We know that nothing beats pairing great food with great beer. With The Newman's illustrious reputation for pies, we've decided to keep them front and centre . Our pie chef focuses on the classics along side seasonal varieties.

Truman's Brewery was originally founded in 1666. Over the following 300 years, it rose to become one of the prominent breweries in the world, before a series of buyouts caused its unfortunate closure in 1989. In 2010, James Morgan revived the name and for the first time in 21 years, Truman's beer was available to Londoners. Truman's have since become the leading independent cask brewer in the capital and continue to expand at pace across the UK and abroad.

The Newman Arms is the first pub acquired by Truman's Brewery since their re-founding. The Newman Arms itself has an illustrious history, having been founded in the 1730s after a short stint as a brothel. Its recent history has seen it become a foodie destination, with previous landlady Tracey helping it gain a reputation for its pies. The Cornwall Project then focused on vibrant, seasonal dishes inspired by the western tip of the UK. We're incredibly excited to now put our own stamp onto this pubs history.
