A small but excellent menu. Four different starters and four different main courses all excellent. The pork cheeks were mouth watering. Friendly caring service and great Jacobean atmosphere.

Holdsworth house is a lovely place and we chose it for a treat cream tea. Unfortunately it was very disappointing - slightly stale cake and bread with tea bags instead of proper loose tea! However the scones & cream/jam were of a great standard, let down by the rest of the tea, particularly for £15.

We went to Holdsworth House on Saturday evening, there were 4 in our party. Service was terrible in the bar area, before our meal. Starters were ok we had Smoked Goats Cheese Mousse and pea and mint soup, nothing to write home about. The waitress was very nice and polite but needed training on the menu I asked for a... More

I went here for lunch and loved it took my husband back and was disappointed. The main was fine and the waitress nice. I ordered the pineapple and coconut marshmellow dessert which was £8 so well above normal prices so i expected it to taste amazing and it didn't really taste of anything and the sponge wasn't really sponge.

My wife and I recently went for afternoon tea having emailed a table reservation with some specific requests which were acknowledged. When our food came our requests had been missed with most of the deserts containing chocolate. The server walked away immediately even when called so I ended up walking with the tray towards the kitchens to get items changed.... More

Ate here during a two night stay at the hotel and we were very impressed. The service was great - very attentive without being fussy - and the food was excellent. The trio of cured fish starter was very tasty and the ribeye steak was top quality and cooked to perfection. Although the hotel was busy with a wedding, the... More

We visited Holdsworth House on a Travelzoo voucher for a sirloin steak meal with a bottle of house wine. The welcome was polite and staff very efficient. The food was fantastic, beautifully cooked and very well presented. It was very clear that the restaurant buys top quality ingredients. Will definitely return and happily pay full price.
