I ate here with my wife last night and the meal was brilliant. I opted for the Tollgate Burger which I must say is the best burger I've ever had. The burgers are hand made and seasoned and spiced to perfection. The hand cut chips taste amazing and the curried salsa is top notch. This was all washed down with... More

We visited on a chilly Tuesday and had a wonderful lunch. It ticked all the boxes for a traditional country pub experience but with much better food than you might usually expect. This is way above the average establishment in so many ways-apart from the outdated loos! All praise to the team who are delivering an impressive package.

The Tollgate changed hands a while back and went through a little dip... teething problems, I guess. But it is back on track, although a different track. Now more of a pub experience than a restaurant, but still a good experience. Good pub style food served by friendly staff in a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere. What more can you ask... More

We moved to the area just over a year ago and have often driven past this place. It looks very nice from the outside and we've both been keen to try it out. With Christmas approaching, we decided this would be the place to take our longstanding friend for a special Christmas meal. We booked the table a few weeks... More

We hadn't been to the Tollgate for a while and the management has changed (2.5 years ago!). We were welcomed warmly and given plenty of time to look at the menu over a drink. We chose to share a Mezze platter for our starter & were delighted to find that everything was home-made; not just shop bought hummus & other... More

What more is there to ask for? By good luck we recently moved nearby and took an evening away from unpacking and so on to grab some great food at the Tollgate. The hosts were very welcoming and more importantly the menu was varied, interesting, well-presented and tasty. If you want some good pub food give it a try. You're... More

We arrived on a busy night without having booked, but were noticed immediately and shown to he very last table, which was on the threshold between the restaurant area and the bar. Service was friendly, unfussy and brisk. The food was good, and good value for money. Great ambience.

This review is long overdue as we have been using the Tollgate since buying a cottage in Holt over 2 years ago. We have consistently had excellent food and service. The menu changes regularly and is always delicious and value for money. I also use the upstairs to room as a meeting venue for training courses which all my delegates... More

I had to take the time to write, I had the unfortunate experience of being invited to dine with friends at the Toll Gate after deciding to never again eat here after a previous horrific experience involving a squirrel terrine that was full of bones and grit 4 years previously. I should have stuck to my principles. I dined on... More

i am not sure what dish you were reviewing as we do not serve beef strips with mustard mash. The dish we serve is Pan Fried Tenderised Striploin Steak Served Rare with Olive & Tarragon Crushed Potatoes, Tomato & Cucumber Salad, Red Onion & Pepper Dressing. I can't comment about your experience 4 years ago as have only been at... More
