Went to Holt for Sunday lunch and must say it was fantastic. Only £6.95 so very reasonable pricing. Lovely friendly staff and great atmosphere. Will be returning.

Just been to 'The Foot' for a lovely meal with my wife, young daughter, Mum and Step Dad. Great beer, great food and really good service. Fantastic to see the pub so busy and successful again. Would recommend it to anyone. Brilliant to have something so good and welcoming on our doorstep.

We live close to this pub, had heard good reviews under new manager, so thought we would give it a go. Starters of trio of garlic bread and king prawns. 3 famous burgers which were huge with a variety of toppings, the chilli and rice was really tasty. we had a great bottle of Shiraz which was very reasonably priced...
