It was really tasty and I loved that we were served with warm bread rolls and butter before our mains- nice little touch. My friend had the chicken tikka which she enjoyed.

We have just been for afternoon tea for the first time at The Holly and were so impressed by the quality and variety of the food, the friendly and professional service and value for money. We are already planning a dinner date there an would recommend anyone to try it. A real treat and a great find.

I had pre-booked as a birthday treat for my elderly mother. The table had been reserved and very attractively laid out with pretty china.

The afternoon tea was beautifully displayed, plentiful... More

Best meal I've had in a long time waited on us by an enthusiastic lad called Tom who was also extremely helpful and polite. We also got a good education on gin by Sean who really knows his stuff. Definitely coming again and I would urge everyone passing to book a table and dine. Also the overnight rooms are perfect... More

First visit for a long time. Impressed with the inside decor but outside neede some work. The food and service were both very good, My husband had a lovely gammon and all the trimmings, and I had fish and chips, the batter was lovely and crunchy not soggy like most places. Will defiantly return.

I have sent 2 e mails requesting information as the download online does not work.....no reply . Obviously my custom is not wanted. Maybe I asked for something extra!!! As a local i would have liked to try the restaurant. However, the management ignored my request and so i am disgusted.

Not from the area was on a weekend break in the area. Great spot! Great decor! Great menu! The New Holly treated us for complimentary prosecco for such an occasion (birthday and an engagement) Beth was fantastic! Couldn't fault her! If I'm ever in the area again I would defiantly pop back.
