Had high hopes for our first visit, great feel to the restaurant and great table however service levels were poor, I had to constantly signal for anything needed, had a bottle of wine which was not even opened for us. Food started off really well with great starters, carvery was average and although dessert was good if it was not what the waitress told me it was going to be (rhubarb crumble when it was in fact apple and blackberry). I would however go back again for a meal on normal menu as I did like overall feel.
All 6 of us enjoyed our meal. The food was good, the restaurant spotless, and the staff most obliging. Definatley will be returning.
the food was excellent and the service was first class would recommend to everyone
Amazing staff, kind enough to bring over 2 glasses of bubbly to celebrate myself and partner on our engagement, amazing food and lovely surroundings will definately return
Had a lovely evening with family. The food and service was great. Would highly recommend.
Great choice of food and staff very attentive. Thank you and looking forward to our Son's wedding at Holt Lodge this September.
One of the nicest carveries I have had. Service was excellent. Staff were very helpful. Will definitely be going back.
Very enjoyable evening for our sons 18th Birthday party. We would highly recommend as the service from the Management and staff was excellent and food was lovely. Would definitely book again.
The only disappointing aspect was the breakfast which was mediocre little choice. not even enough for two e.g just one potato waffle available and only scramble eggs available. very poor value for money whereas the restaurant was very good in the evening. Will probably not book to stay again and try somewhere else but will use the restaurant again.
Excellent service, food & staff. Will definitely be returning.
Excellent food and service could not of asked for more will be back thank you all staff. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
We all thoroughly enjoyed our delicious afternoon tea in celebration of my daughter Lindsey's 43rd birthday. The staff were lovely and Lindsey has decided that she would like to have lunch at Holt Lodge on her birthday next year. Thank you for making her feel special.
As always we enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with fantastic service.
If I was being really picky, the music was a bit loud. The restaurant was busy so as you would expect, there was a lot of chatter. So music on top made it quite hard to chat.
Clearly overbooked and tried to get as many people in as possible which resulted in poor service, the poor waitresses were rushed off their feet. We waited until 5:15 to be seated baring in mind we’d booked a table for 4:30
Absolutely terrible day on mother’s day , I understand places are busy but we booked table for 3.15pm still waiting to be seated at 3.45 - told table being redressed in garden lounge ready for us , 4.20pm after asking 2/3 times when we wud b seated we get a table in main restaurant due to there over booking , food was awful , ordered childs main to come with adults starters and it was missed off so had to wait 10 minutes for that , then two of the mains came out 10 mins after the first lot so we all ate separate and they over charged us to which we are still trying to get sorted - Neva again
Visited for Mother’s day meal. 10/15 minutes before arrival my sister phoned to add x2 more people to the booking, the staff were more than accommodating and even apologetic that our table was not ready, which they did not need to be. Service was slow and some staff appeared to a little lost/puzzled. However the restaurant was fully booked and the staff were very polite and professional at all times.
Shame they don't have more of a variety of vegetables. Mashed potatoes would be better aswell.
Very good service
Great night out , food good , portions a little bit small . Ambience a bit quiet , we were only ones there which was surprising for a Friday evening. Would go again . Part of a group of eleven and will be back.
Lovely food and atmosphere
Staff were ready and willing to make the event a happy and memorable time well done
Not impressed that the only type of potatoes that was on the Sunday carvery was roast potatoes. Everywhere we have been before has a choice of either mash or new potatoes or even both. We also had a long wait for the children’s meals, the reason for this was we were told that the chef had a function he had to serve out first before doing the children’s meals, surely there should be more than one chef and to make kids wait so long was unacceptable. Choice of veg was very poor on the carvery also. Staff were helpful though.
Quality Food , Excellent Service in a warm and friendly atmosphere What more do you need ? Five Star !
