Wonderful

Fantastic food and the young man that served us was very polite friendly and pleasent. This place is worth calling into. Try the chicken parfait or roast beef and finish off with the apple plate or sticky toffee pudding... it was very light and the sauce with it was beautiful

We received a very warm welcome - as friends had suggested we would - and enjoyed the wine and coffee. Slightly disappointed with the food, which might have been the choices we made, but enjoyed the overall visit enough to plan a return visit. The dining room is very big - and attractive - for a country pub so it... More

Thank good ness we decided to give the Holcome Inn another try. It is very convenient for us but the last visit we'd had a very mediocre meal. What a change! It has gone from reasonable to First Class. The food was excellent and beautifully presented, the staff were friendly and proffesiomal always keeping an eye out for diners needs.... More

Thank you Peggy for your review. There are a few things I would like to state in response. Firstly the scallops we serve are 100% fresh 100% of the time, we would never use frozen scallops. Our chef takes off the roe as most good restaurants do, he then dries them and makes them into a roe seasoning which is... More

This place is a gem, fantastic food and service, will be returning again. Probably the best meal i've had in a very long time, Maybe a little over priced but well worth it. As a chef myself i will most definately be spreading the word that this is one of my favourite places to eat. thanks to all that work... More

We chose to book the hotel based on the proximity to family we wished to visit. The menu at the hotel made our mind up and it certainly did not disappoint. There was a varied menu with a couple of vegetarian options for me while my meat eating husband was spoiled for choice!. There was also a children's menu. The... More

The food was average and the portions adequate was not allowed to substitute chips for french fries, how petty!! very slow service 45 to 60 minutes between courses. Continually being asked if everything was OK, got the impression they were not really interested, just following instructions. overpriced
