“Lovely Food”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We spent a lovely evening here wining and dining. The food was very good and staff friendly. Unfortunately 3 of us had the same and our meat was cold when served but was rectified immediately.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Had an excellent meal here on our last night on holiday in Holt. The beer was a perfect temperature. We shared the mezze for a starter which was very fresh, homemade and full of flavour. I had pulled pork with sweet potato chips, a robust dish which was delightful. A lovely atmosphere in the pub, enough people but not too crowded. Would definitely go again.

“Complaint at being served raw burger”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch today & my husband ordered the burger with fries. He specifically asked for the burger to be plain as he has food allergies. The waiter arrived with it covered in cheese & bacon etc so he sent it back. The waiter returned moments later after removing only the bacon from the burger. So we return the food once again. The rest of us are eating our meal but my husband has no food. Eventually a burger is brought out to my husband but he bit into it & blood ran out & it was cold & raw in the centre ! We sent it back & waited for someone to come over to sort it out. No one came. We went to the bar & complained to the landlady who's attitude stank ! No apology , no understanding. We said what if it was a child who had been served this ? She was vile. Turned her back on us & told the bar staff to give us our meal for free. We shall not be returning. Disgusted !

“Great Little Pub/Restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Loved this place, the food was excellent, and very reasonable. A very popular Inn, especially as it was a Monday Night. Service was well up to standard, and the final bill was almost exactly what we had been paying the whole time we were down this way, about £25.00 per person.

“Good food and nice atmosphere!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Eaten on this pub over many years of visiting Bradford on Avon and have never been disappointed. During the summer season booking is advisable!
