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 !
Staff very friendly food good and good service very nice evening
Five of us had afternoon tea was value for money and the staff couldn’t do enough for us will definitely be going again
Just had family meal at the Rafters Holt Lodge, food and service brilliant, would recommend and will be going there again, there was over 30 of us and the service was brilliant, food good and hot, staff brilliant
A wonderful Christmas dinner with friends.
Starters and carvery were lovely but not as nice and fresh as when we've been on a Sunday. Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes tasted reheated. Cappuccino was far too milky. Didn't say anything as we'd already had to replace one lot of wrong drinks. 😁
Very well organised evening.The food was excellent all members of our party were served at the same time even though we didn all have the same meal.This was our Christmas get together.as we live in the Midlands Thankyou
Exceptional helpful staff who went out if their way to make sure we had a great evening! Food was lovely & great value for money. We will DEFINITELY be back 😊
Excellent Christmas meal, friendly helpful staff. Lovely food in a lovely setting.
Booked afternoon tea for the first time with you. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with the cake selection not what I expected for £14.95 pp. The sandwiches were ok & so were the scones but thought there may have been a better choice for the rest of the tea. This was also a birthday treat for my friend.
A lovely Sunday evening family meal for 8, adults carvery was amazing as always and children’s meals were enjoyed by all of them. Will definitely be back soon
Big thanks to all the staff at Holt Lodge again - in the kitchen for the delicious carvery - and in the restaurant for their excellent service. I would highly recommend. We had taken my brother out for a treat from his care home (in a wheelchair and with Dementia) and he was treated with such kindness and respect. The wine waiter was so lovely taking the time to describe,directly to him, the local craft beer, before serving him with half a pint, which he clearly thought was delicious! The true spirit of Christmas shone from everyone. Thank you all SO much,it means a lot and is MUCH appreciated!! We hope to be back ere long!! God bless. Felicity x
Great service from initial booking onwards. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff. Sunday carvery was enjoyed by all ages in our party. We will return. Thank you!
Lovely restaurant , delicious carvery , very attentive welcoming staff , all in all a very enjoyable experience and will definitely be coming back.
