Took my Sister and Mum for afternoon tea, although very quiet because it was a Monday afternoon, we had a lovely time. The waiter was very nice and could not do enough for us.

Roast potatoes were too hard. Outside needs a good clean including the fountain. Not nice to look at when dining. Service was good and great staff. Sadly food a bit of a let down.

Prompt response to my pre-booking enquiry. The large round table for 8 was perfect for our family gathering. Everyone loved the food (great choice and presented beautifully) and the service was excellent. Thank you.

Overall the food was good except for the potatoes which were a bit under done and the whole meal could have been a bit hotter. We did find the drinks were a bit expensive.

Very attentive staff provided a warm welcome and superb service throughout our lunch. Food perfect and very competitively priced. Must say that, considering it was busy with a wedding party, we still received first class attention. We were with friends from Nottingham, and they were very impressed. Well done everyone.

Given that we booked so early the atmosphere was pleasant, the menu was varied giving a choice of the old favourites with a few more adventurous dishes.

From the initial enquiry/booking with Suzanne, the welcome from Christine and all the staff that looked after Tritech Group, everything went accordingly and very well looked after with pleasant helpful team at Holt Lodge Hotel. * Just one negative comment due to the very hot weather, would have liked room to have had air con. But the company will certainly use this venue again.

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.

Restaurant Response

Hello Miss Reynolds, I would like to apologise on behalf of our team for not being up to the usual standard. Every Sunday we have designated staff members per each section and they are getting a full written report on what we have for the day. I have now discussed with my colleague who looked after you and we have introduced a slightly different method to ensure we all have the updated info with us at all times. I would really like to see you returning to our restaurant and seeing the improvement that we have achieved. If you could let me know when you would be willing to return please e-mail me at [email protected] and I would be happy to ensure that you will see the difference.
