Sunday lunch ok. Nice setting, Busy and so it felt vibrant. Some points to note though. Food wasn’t particularly hot and I had to send the soup back. Main course was luke warm also which took some of the enjoyment away. One of our party was a vegetarian but there was only one choice on the menu, which was a goats cheese risotto. When I asked if there was any other option, or what would happen if someone was a vegan, I was told there wasn’t another option and that they would remove the cheese from the risotto. So that’s a goats cheese risotto without the goats cheese! Hmmmm. Sunday lunch for 4, two courses for 3 of us and 3 courses for 1. A bottle of Rioja, one Irish coffe, two sparkling waters and two pints of non alcoholic beer. £170. Quite expensive I think.

Hi - l enjoy coming to eat at Holm House. However it's more for the atmosphere and service and setting as l came in January and last week and the main selection was still risotto. Would be nice to have a little more choice.

First visit and quite disappointed that we were not offered a wine list. I asked for a wine list when our starters arrived and had finished my starter by the time our wine arrived. Staff seemed to be occupied with setting tables up for afternoon tea around us. The food was delicious and made up for the lack of wine service.

Nothing was too much trouble for your staff we were made welcome only criticism we had was poor choice of starters and even though it was requested we weren't given much choice of vegetarian or vegan options the quality of the food was excellent we had a lovely evening

Service and food during an afternoon tea at Holm House was very disappointing. I booked a table to celebrate my mum’s 60th birthday but would not return anytime soon. We were made to 40 minutes before anyone took our drinks order. There were very limited options for vegetarian sandwiches, so much so my mum was given a smoked salmon sandwich as one of her options. In addition, the portions were very small - for almost £19 I would hope for more than two finger sandwiches. One of the worst afternoon teas I’ve had in a long time!

Had been waiting to visit as had heard good things. Came on this date for husbands birthday. was very disappointed took 30 minutes to order and drink and even longer to order food. Food portions for starters seemed small and main course was OK to be fair but very buttery. Waited again a very long time between receiving the bill and then having to ask to pay. Really gutted about the experience as had high hopes.

This was a 40th Birthday present and 1st visit. Tea itself was lovely but service hit and miss. No milk given with tea, no tea spoon. The tea should of had a glass of fizz included but never arrived so we had to ask for it. Very very busy, seemed like too many customers for number of staff on duty. But it wouldn’t stop us from coming back.

We were a party of 11 and had a wonderful time, meal was delicious and staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendlier. I would certainly recommend them and they went out of their way to provide a gluten free menu mirroring the main menu. Thank you so much everyone!!

Myself and 7 of my friends were here on Sunday for lunch and a spa day. We could not have asked for a better day! The Sunday lunch was superb and the venue was spotless! Will definitely be back and cannot recommend this place enough! The views from the relaxation room were amazing and staff were so friendly and catered to our every need!

More work required on customer service, staff training and hospitality. For a 4 star rated establishment it was poor. This is based on experience of having dined in such places and coming away satisfied having had VFM and being valued as a customer. Definitely not what happened here. On the positive side, the food was very good and the atmosphere lovely.

Food and service was lovely as always. I would suggest that next year the restaurant opens at 12:30 for lunch on New Years Day rather than 12 as we were kept waiting 15 minutes whilst the restaurant was cleaned following guests who were late down for breakfast.
