Ordered Yorkshire pudding and beef as a starter, the portion was tiny and felt insulted by it. Ordered mussels as a starter, they were too small, too salty and had lost that lovely sea flavour that shellfish should have. Main meals were steak and chips and turbot with vegetables, again portions were too small and we couldn't believe the portion... More

Always reliably good food and courteous staff. It has been running a long time so they are evidently doing it right.

Popped in here for my second visit recently and had the most lovely lunch. Gorgeous fresh beetroot salad followed by Salmon which was absolutely delicious. Good atmosphere and excellent lady in charge and waiting staff. Would thoroughly recommend this place.

We are relatively local and have heard of the Holt but not got around to visit. Once a week, at least we cook for my husbands 87 year old godmother and this week she insisted on supper out. She is aging and every attached to her Yorkshire terrier so my husband was frantically trying to locate us a suitable venue... More

I have heard good things about this restaurant, and glad I finally took the time to visit. It is everything you could hope for. I liked the style of service, and the food was amazing. There was not one person is our party of 4 that was disappointed. My advice, book a table!
