This is (I think) my third review of this establishment - it really does keep going from strength to strength, hence another review.

This was my first (possibly last) visit to the holt arms. Other than a issue with getting soda water twice instead of lemonade, the bar and beer garden were great. Unfortunately the food was nowhere near this standard, staff didn't know anything about the menu, fish of the day was not available sadly so we mostly opted for steaks, the... More

Today I decided that I didn't want to cook Sunday Lunch, so set about trying to find somewhere local. After googling for only short while, I found the Trip Advisor reviews for "Holt Arms." My husband and I arrived to a most beautiful setting, hidden on a normal little street. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed in... More

Visited yesterday with the family. We had the chicken kebab, curry and a tuna & cheese ciabatta and all of the food was excellent. The pub is lovely and the staff were very helpful. We will definitely return.

I have eaten here twice and both times I have been highly impressed with the quality of the food standard of service and the price of the meals. Booking is not always essential on a week night but I would highly recommend booking in advance at the weekends.

I have always enjoyed my visits to the holts, the food has always been fantastic and the pub is beautiful, however the last 2 times we visited we noticed thet the pub were allowing people to book tables!? meaning there were lots of empty tables with 'reserved' notices on them.

This is my local pub and although I don't get to visit as often as I would like, the food is always top quality. The steaks are really really good (especially the salt and pepper coating) and the real chips are also a very tasty treat. However, best of all are the Sunday roast beef dinners! Come and support the... More
