Great food and service. Thank you! Loved the salad bar and breakfast choices. Very helpful staff. Loads of delicious pies and cakes. Vast array of breads. The pizza we took away was amazing. A real hive of activity in the centre of Holt

Great food. Great choice for adults and kids. Fantastic as always. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I have never understood why you normally have a queue when there are free tables. You get served but there is normally a little wait. However it is worth the wait.

Used to be one of my favourite places, and the food is still nice although not wow.. but portions seem to be smaller and they charge enough. The food though is not the problem. The management clearly is. Lack of customer service, the meet and greet lady ( English not her first language) seems out of her depth, cold ,not... More

We are very fond of North Norfolk and we were recommended to try Byfords, a "posh B & B" as it calls itself, right in the middle of the town of Holt. The place, which also consists of a delicatessen, restaurant and tea house is an absolute delight. We were provided with free tea and cakes on arrival. Our room,... More

I have often heard people raving about Byfords and I finally paid a visit on 30th July 2016... What a letdown!! When we arrived there was a huge queue, and we waited about 20 mins to be seated (there was 2 of us plus my daughter in a pushchair). several people who got there after us were shown to seats...

Lovely food fresh crab, plentiful salad and nice touch that olives/bread available free of charge for starters. Nice waiter but the lady greeting people at the desk was not welcoming at all main reason for not leaving a tip! If you want a window seat advisable to book.

We've been going to Byfords for years, while on holidays in north Norfolk. This time, unusually, was disappointing. After queuing to get in we ordered then waited over 40 minutes to receive our simple wrap/sandwich lunch. When it arrived it the fries were almost stone cold - clearly been waiting to be collected some time. We sent them back and... More

Took my partner here as a birthday treat - we often stay in Norfolk but usually closer to Wells. This is a beautiful part of the county and the hotel offers a wonderful opportunity to stay in Holt close to the coast and the beautiful Norfolk countryside. We found all the staff to be very accommodating, helpful and wanting to... More

Arrived mid afternoon for a snack/tea. The member of staff to meet and greet, certainly was not there to greet. A lady with a foreign accent, was reprimanding the customer in front of us for standing the wrong side of the wooden pedestal , who wanted to sit in the dining area to the right, she insisted that she stood...

Stayed in room 11, very nice, could get to the room from the car park, bath, wet room shower really comfy bed, large flat screen tv and nice touches to the room (sweets, toiletries, books etc. The lilies were a nice touch, however were very empowering and the smell did get to you. But they did look lovely, perhaps try... More
