Better than the chain pubs!

First time here and we came for a roast dinner. Lovely roast turkey dinner - nice amount of food and very pleasant staff. Nice atmosphere in the pub. Will definitely visit again.

Specifically went for lunch today as it stated dog friendly. Well, firstly, so friendly when we went in, got a bowl of water for our four legged friend, made a fuss of him, even suggested where we sat so he had more room. Ordered the food, very quick service. The food was fantastic, word advice, NOT small portions, the corned... More

Called in as was listed as a dog friendly place, so after a walk around the local area with the family and dog, we called in for a few pints. Upon walking in you are met by old stone and wonky wood, this is the real deal, not some modern fake. The dog was made to feel very welcome by... More

I've joined Tripadvisor just to leave this review, such were my good impressions of this establishment. Firstly, To redress the balance; I can't understand why the previous reviewer could possibly think the new manager was anything other than personable, cheerful and professional. To say he is unwelcoming and unprofessional is simply not true. Maybe there are a few sour grapes... More

I was informed this place had new management and was starting to gain a better reputation but upon my arrival it appears nothing has changed. Unwelcoming landlord who was not willing to serve a table of 4 for Sunday dinner. Was informed 40minute wait which was fine but whilst trying to order drinks We were repeatedly told to try again...

Sorry to see you didn't enjoy your visit to the Holts Arms. I have spoken to the bar manager about this and understand that you hadn't booked a table? It is always best to book ahead as we can get very busy and subsequently can find it very difficult and sometimes impossible to accommodate you if you haven't. Evn a... More

Another visit to the 'Foot' and another excellent meal. Service was unobtrusive yet efficient and nothing too much trouble. Salt and Pepper Rib Eye Steak was cooked perfectly, the Cajun Chicken Burger was a delight. The real gems on this visit however were the starters; Light and crispy Corned Beef Fritters were a sensation, the warm Scotch Egg was beautifully... More

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
