Description: The Holford Arms is a 16th century characterful, country 'freehouse' pub, boasting fantastic food, great beer and a wonderful warm atmosphere. Described by many as a 'smallholding pub' the landlords produce their own Pork including their own sausages, bacon, salami's, chorizo's and prosciutto style hams, as well as their own cider, honey, eggs and home grown vegetables.

Ate here on a stopover in the camp site out the back of the pub, we both had the pork chops which were succulent with a tasty pork rind. Ample portions, along with a pint or 3 of the landlords Sherston Cider made for a great night. The addition of some Blugress musicians was a bonus, apparently they play here most Fridays .

The pork and cider are both produced by the owners locally which i do like. The pub also has open fires and dogs are welcome.

Would definitely use again

A pork and fennel burger with beetroot coleslaw and finely fried chips for me and the creamiest Stilton soup and meat platter (from the publicans ow. pigs) was a lovely stop for lunch enroute. Ask the lovely couple who run the place and they might even tour you their livestock and veg garden out the back. The Holford Arms hides it's charm without the usual 'gastro' baubles outside. The car park is pot holed, the neighbours sell large farming equipment, so it's for the discerning eater and drinker to hunt this one down and discover an atmosphere the local community clearly knows is special already.

Went here on a Friday evening with a couple of friends. Food was very good - Sherston ribeye, melt in the mouth delicious. Waited a little while for food as there was a large group to be fed, but it didn't matter at all. Great atmosphere and the blue grass jamming session in the background made a change from some of the background noise in London pubs! The 4 of us thought it was very good value for what we had - beer, wine, shared platter for starter, 3 steaks and fish and chips, would certainly have cost a lot more in London.
I liked the good mix of customers. Sometimes pubs tend to be for either a younger group or an older group - not a problem at all in Knockdown!
Wish the Holdford Arms and its owners all the best and hope it continues to thrive.
