Quite often, bad reviews say more about the reviewer than the establishment and staff. We lunched today at the Holcombe Inn. The staff were welcoming and courteous and we accepted that we may have to wait for food that is being freshly cooked to order. We didn't...... Came away thinking that I must try the combination of the ingredients in... More

We discovered the Holcombe Inn having moved to Holcombe 4 months ago. We have been to Holcombe Inn for several meals with friends and also for drinks. The pub is cosy and extremely welcoming and the staff are fantastic. The decor is super! However what really sets the Holcombe Inn apart is the quality of the food and the standard... More

We rang and booked a table for 14 yesterday, thus being New Years Day, a little late and a busy day which we appreciated at the time of booking. Upon arrival the pub itself looked very welcoming and so did the staff, however.... upon being seated, the lunchtime menu was very limited for choice, more starers than mains! the pie... More

Without the two dishes mentioned which we did sell out of after serving over 80 meals, there were 22 dishes from the main menu to choose from and 7 dishes on our specials menu! To say we did not have enough food to provide for is ludicrous. New Years Day we had a busy restaurant but we did manage to... More

I've eaten here twice both in Nov 2014. And both times the food was excellent. I would highly recommend. It may be a little expensive for some but well worth the money.

Welcomed on arrival seated near a beautiful open fire. Very friendly. Food is pricy but well worth the extra money. Very good selection on the menu. Knowledgable and helpful friendly staff. All dishes were presented well and tasted amazing. Meat we were told was locally sourced. Very good quality. Atmosphere was lovely its a very busy place so a must... More

Went for a Christmas meal on a works night out. Booked for 12, but ended up with only 11. Completely understand that deposits are non refundable, but one of our party had to have emergency eye surgery so was unable to make the night. We rang two days before and explained the situation but couldn't get the deposit back. Spoke... More

what a great combination of excellent, good quality food in a welcoming and picturesque setting. I only wish we lived further away so we could justify staying the night.

We booked for Sunday lunch in November and were very impressed with both the quality of the food and the service provided. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming. We will definitely be visiting again. Best Sunday lunch we have had in a long time.
