About The Holestone

We are a small and homely restaurant with a bright and airy atmosphere situated in the village of Parkgate, serving a range of breakfast, lunch and dinners with a variety we hope suits every taste and adaptable for any allergy or preference throughout our locally sourced menu offering a fine flair on traditional dishes. Opened by our chef Jonathan Clarke and his partner Chloe running front of house - a young couple in their early 20s - together they strive to reignite the dying trade of good honest food and proper customer service which has seen a decline over the years. Available for group bookings and functions - christenings/baby showers/birthdays and small wedding receptions. We are unlicensed but work alongside Tweedies Bar adjacent to us to deliver a greatly chosen Wine, Beer & Spirits menu.

We brought our friends from Texas to The Holestone and we had the most wonderful time! They had been in Dublin and Edinburgh before arriving in Northern Ireland and said their meal here was the best they'd had their whole trip! The staff are always exceptional. We will be back very very soon :-)

This was my first visit to The Holestone even though it is quite local and I was pleasantly surprised. We availed of the early bird menu, which is fantastic value for money. The food was glorious, the service impeccable and we sat for hours afterwards without being ushered on/out (even though it was quite busy). Staff were attentive without being intrusive and catered to our every whim. The only (and I mean only) downside are the chairs... they look really pretty but aren't the most comfortable. Overall an excellent experience - I will be back and recommend it to family and friends. Thank you!

Salt and chilli prawn starter needs to be made with king prawns or changed. portion size for the price is grossly unbalanced. 6 small sized prawns for the price point is not realistic. This would need to change to either 6 king prawns or more of the smaller prawn variety. Other than the above the food experience was very good.

Compliments to the chef! My first visit to The Holestone with 6 friends. We all loved it. The food was art on a plate, tasted absolutely delicious and perfect portions. Really impressed. A gem in Parkgate. We'll be back 💗
