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

We booked our meal at Holdsworth House as a pre-Christmas treat. Expectations were high. 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. Unfortunately on this occasion we were extremely disappointed. Unlike the previous reviewer who was lucky to... More

We stayed overnight to celebrate my Husband's Birthday and decided to eat in the restaurant....a poor choice on this particular evening I'm sorry to say. The menu was quite limited and quite pricey, service was not the best. Our choice was steak in the end and this was cooked perfectly. To compliment our meal we ordered a bottle of wine... More

Attended on a Saturday night for a special birthday meal on 23 August. It was a shambles from our arrival. Car park was full, bar was full, reception area was a squash. We were shown some seats but then left for a good while before drinks orders were taken. These then arrived a good 15 mins later. Although we had... More

We live locally and Holdsworth House has always been a 'mystery' establishment because we have never actually set foot in the place until a few months ago. We put off reviewing it because after our experience we didn't want to waste any more time on it. Not that we couldn't afford it, but we always assumed Holdsworth House caters for... More
