Another brilliant meal at Holts Arms. Just gets better and better. We had family visiting from The Midlands and when they come to Billinge, they always ask "Can we go to the Holts Arms?" Everyone amazed with the meal the other night. Brilliant food, beer and staff. Cannot be beaten.

Another superb meal at the foot! We met family here for a meal because to be honest we won't go anywhere else. The fire was roaring and the gin was flowing freely. ( this is the place to be for gin lovers!) Every single one of us cleaned our plates completely, whether it was the fish and chips or the... More

For a 'something special' meal out this would be a good choice. The menu is interesting and the survive is pleasant.

We came as a family of four for Sunday dinner. I love the atmosphere in this pub and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The Sunday menu is compact but I think there is just enough choice, I'm a vegetarian and had at least two mains to choose from. The food arrived all in good time with reasonable gap between... More

Could have lived with the average and dull food because we were so hungry but having to wait the best part of 3/4 of an hour for the food to arrive? Either not enough staff or just badly organised. Not recommended.

We ordered garlic bread to start which there were plenty of it however the bread was sodden with butter that when you took a bite the Greece run down your chin and fingers- yuk. 3 of us ordered burgers which came with chunky chips that...

Good for in quick time and a good pub atmosphere. All at reasonable prices too - maybe a little more choice would have made the review excellent rather than very good.....

My partner and I like a decent walk to justify a good meal and a couple of drinks. We have visited the foot "aka the Holts arms" or vice Versa! twice in a week over Christmas. Which for us is a three mile round trip on foot- to the foot! We found the staff helpful decisive positive and capable. The... More

Fabulous Home cooked food in a 17th century inn with excellent wines and quality cask ales, roaring fires in winter, stunning beer garden in the summer. One of the best little pubs in Lancashire!
