Looked forward to this as I'd always heard good things about Holdsworth House. However Sunday lunch was a very poor experience. Starters (the best bit) were served after we'd been seated and settled. However the mains came immediately after we'd finished the starters - so quickly that we'd not had knives & forks replaced so were left sitting for a... More

Following a not so pleasant evening at this restaurant the Management kindly invited us back to experience the changes they have put in place. The wedding party and guests that caused our last experience here to be spoiled were completely separated from the restaurant area and the atmosphere transformed.

We have been to the Holdsworth 3 times now and each time we have enjoyed our stay. The welcome is lovely and you are offered a free glass of wine on arrival which is a nice touch. This time we took our dog and they provide a blanket and dog bowl which is lovely. However I have to say that... More

Had a very enjoyable meal here with 2 colleagues on. Monday evening. Ambience with log fire in Ocotber and decor good. Menu was varied and well presented. My first choice if I return to the area.

Having patronized this hotel and restaurant for over 30 years we have seen a steady decline in the quality of dining experience offered here. We dined here on Saturday 30th May. As usual a wedding party was present and as usual no effort to segregate the wedding party from the restaurant was made. Subsequently the bar was not available for... More

Dear John S, What can we do but apologise and say how very sorry we were to hear that you had such an unfortunate experience in the restaurant where you have obviously enjoyed dining in the past. As you say, Holdsworth House is a popular venue for weddings. This beautiful old house lends itself for such events and we are... More

Had the a la carte menu and all the food was fantastic. Had the scallops and they were delicious. The grilled chicken was lovely and the triple cooked chips great. Had the petit four for dessert, which were very rich and the truffle was too rich for my taste, so grudgingly had to leave one! My partner is vegetarian and... More

We were staying at the hotel, 21st May, so decided to have our evening meal there.. It was fabulous, with the nice little extra touches that we all love... mini snacks with your drink whilst waiting for table, complimentary little jug of soup, and warm bread and butter.. The food was quality, beautifully presented, with the best triple cooked chips... More

Liked everything, desserts could be more interesting. Lovely atmosphere and excellent service. We tried both a la carte and grill menus and both were great.

This has to be one of the best restaurants around - we have dined both as wedding guests, taster meals, and normal restaurant and it is all superb - well worth a visit for top quality food in wonderful atmospheric surroundings
