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.
Lovely food. Was end of service so restaurant was empty. Hoping business will continue to pick up as enjoyed the food we had especially the prawn starter and choc mousse dessert
Beautiful food - flavour and presentation on point everytime, pleasant and attentive staff, and a great local spot. Enjoy supporting young local entrepreneurs and look forward to returning to this wee gem.
Love this restaurant . Great food, service, atmosphere . Thankyou.
Food was a little to salty for our taste buds but delicious. Guinness was fantastic.
Always have a lovely meal at The Holestone.
Great food, great atmosphere and above all exceptional service
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 💗
Fantastic service for my birthday! 10/10 for food also
we were all delighted with the wonderful food and the service was terrific Well done indeed and we hope to be back soon Our American guests were mightily impressed Thank You
A real gem, do yourself a favor and visit this restaurant. The service and food are second to none.
Been to the holestone many times and what can I say it is amazing I recommend this place for all your dinning needs. Everyone takes pride in each role they play and the food is always well presented. Keep up the good work x
First visit to the Holestone for a birthday celebration. We went for the early bird menu and were both really impressed with the choices available and the standard of the food served was 5*. We will definitely be back!
The only reason I give 4 stars on atmosphere was because it was very quiet for the first 15 minutes until the music was put on but that was no fault of the restaurant or staff. The service from our waitress was absolutely second to none it really was first class. Will definitely be returning
My wife and I spent a wonderful evening tonight (25th July 2018) at The Holestone in Parkgate. First impressions of the restaurant can only be described as outstanding as we pulled into an ample, well positioned parking area directly outside of the premises. On entering, we were immediately greeted by a wonderful young Dark haired employee who couldn't be more friendly, accommodating and professional. Within minutes we were seated at a comfortable window table with our menus and offered glasses of water, which was poured by our wonderful host. Several minutes later again and we have free delicious complimentary sour dough bread, olive oil and garlic butter which was a really nice touch. During this time we were being serviced by our original host and also another young employee whose demeanour and friendliness was second to none. Between both of the girls, there was a steady flow of service as they worked the entire restaurant without slipping on quality and attentiveness with drinks arriving without delay, then with just the right amount of time in between, our starters arrive, then once again with just the right amount of time again our starters are removed before our main courses arrive once again with just the right delay in between...hard to beat. As far as the menu was concerned, there was a great diverse choice with not too much to confuse the brain which I find to be very refreshing. For starters, my wife had the soup of the day which was Carrot and parsnip which was seasoned perfectly and a beautiful shiny texture to die for, which was accompanied by the best Wheaten bread that we have ever tried, with what I think had a beautiful subtle taste of ginger running through it...unreal. My starter was the Salted Chilli chicken, which was cooked to absolute perfection, with an amazing aromatic dark outer coating with beautiful moist chicken within accompanied by vegetables and everything once again seasoned beautifully. For our mains we had the Rump steak and Pork fillet which were outstanding, accompanied by a combination of Salted Chilli chips, baked mashed potato, a medley of vegetables with a mushroom sauce and for me the star of the show being their mouth watering Chorizo and bell pepper sauce which was mind blowing...even writing about it now, I'm salivating at the thought of it. My wife and I are very fussy when it comes to the quality of both service and food and yet when it comes to The Holestone, we are absolutely blown away by the whole team. I can safely say that we will be bringing our friends, family and clients from our businesses to your restaurant to share with them, the heavenly experience that we both appreciated.

Had a gorgeous meal as per usual in the Holestone last night.. every bite was delicious! Service and atmosphere were great too.
Delicious high quality food that is presented beautifully on every occasion. Have been here on multiple occasions and the food never disappoints. The staff are so friendly and there is always a lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even just a coffee date. Definitely will be back soon
First time trying the Holestone and we loved it. Food was fantastic, reasonably priced and the service was great! We will most certainly be back.
We really enjoyed everything at Wednesday’s steak night, so much that we went back on Friday bringing our American friends...they loved it too! Delicious food, nice atmosphere and lovely staff, so helpful, bright and bubbly!
Great service,lovely food and good value for money. What more can I say ? Have already recommended to several friends and we'll certainly be back !
I cannot rate the Holestone any higher, a simply astounding venue, and unbelievable food. I’ve recommended you to all my friends, and CANNOT wait to come back!
We had the Early bird menu which is brilliant value for money! Nicest dinner I have had out in a long time, would highly recommend. Service was also great, very attentive and nothing was a bother. Will be back!
This was our second time visiting and second good experience. We had 3 courses, all of which were excellent. The menu had a a variety of great selections which made for a difficult decision! The atmosphere was relaxing and service attentive. I would highly recommend Holestone and will definitely make a return for a third time.
We have been to The Holestone a number and were once again pleased with the selection of dishes on offer. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. A great spot to dine
Always amazing food, would recommend to everyone.
