The place is a traditional English pub recently re-opened with new management. Looking forward to visiting again shortly and trying the food.

After a couple hours of walking our dog (a very hyper springer spaniel) we decided to stop here for lunch. I ordered the chicken kebab with naan bread and cajun fries which was astounding. My partner ordered Sunday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it too. We sat out the front at one of the benches as it was only our dog's... More

I was looking forward to the re-launch of this pub but somewhat disappointed with the "New Menu" and food presentation. Only time will tell how this place will shape up. Give it a go and support a local rural pub.

After almost 2 painful months of waiting the holts arms reopened this weekend and I have to say it was definitely worth the wait. Rob the chef did the new landlord proud with the new menu, there were some old favourites alongside some new additions ( the cock and bull) which was beautiful! My partner opted for the mega burger... More

Visited last night and gotta say we won't be going back. Place was cold with one open fire lit that seemed to send it's heat up the chimney rather that out into the room. Ordered Fish and Chips with hand cut chips, arrives with tasteless cheap fries. Sorry we've run out of hand cut chips... erm do you mean potatoes?... More

We had called in early October just for a drink and the pub seemed so appealing, with a couple of real fires roaring. The reviews seemed good so we booked in for a meal. On a cold December night we were surprised the fires were not lit. It was decidedly cold in there. We ordered and the starters and main... More

I was staying nearby in a hotel that allowed dogs, but only in your room. I came to Holts Arms (known as The Foot locally) for a bite to eat and a pint, with my small well-behaved dog. We had a lovely welcome, I ate chilli con carne with extra chilli (excellent) and had a great pint. This was a... More
