We (2 couples) were concerned that the place might be too quiet or off form on a cold winter Monday. Not at all. The staff were very cheerful and efficient. Their friendly, chatty manner added to the atmosphere. We were served by a lovely Polish waitress and Richie and both were excellent. We ate excellent steaks and drank good wine(Groupon... More

It was our 35th Wedding Anniversary which fell on a Monday just 2 days after valentines day. We thought that many restaurants would be closed or very quiet, so went for a restaurant attached to a hotel. Booking the table was a little odd, as I asked for 7.30 but was told it had to be 7.45 and then I... More

A nice acceptable meal, some nice wine, served by very polite staff, in great surroundings, and as the snow fell outside viewed through the stone mullioned windows one could not of wished for a more picturesque scene at this time of year. Although the Christmas music disappeared part way through the evening and the fire went out. All was good... More

My niece worked at Holdsworth House a few years ago and my sister had eaten there on a number of occasions and rated the food and level of service highly.
