We booked in here for a last minute Sunday lunch today and got a cute little table in the bar area, which was perfect! The food was incredible! Especially the steamed ginger pudding with marmalade ice cream. The staff were so friendly and efficient. I've wanted to eat here for a while and I'm so pleased I have...I'll definitely be... More

An outstanding meal. We go there for special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas. We have also been for valentines a few times now. It's a little expensive and space is at a premium but the food and service is excellent. The menu was a little limited but as this was a special occasion it was a valentines day menu... More

We have eaten here a number of times in the evening, this was our first lunch here, we were sitting at 2 o clock which is slightly late, granted, however the service was poor. The food was as good as always but slow service always spoils the experience. The staff were more concerned on setting up for the next sitting... More

Thank you Mr Keene for your review. We have already spoken to the restaurant staff on duty, individually following your discussion with our manager about your disappointment in service on Saturday lunchtime. We do take every comment made by our customers very seriously and I know the young lady (manager) apologised that your plates weren't cleared promptly and you didn't... More

We ate with friends and had a very pleasant evening. The staff are well trained and friendly. The menu was also good with plenty of variety. The food arrived was well presented and tasty. There is a good selection of drinks on offer, and nice artwork which can be bought.

Our Anniversary visit again, and this visit was nearly perfect. My husband enjoyed his venison while I polished off duck confit which was way better than I had produced for Xmas lunch! I usually find a main course a bit too much, but to my surprise I gobbled every bit and would've licked the plate, it was so delicious! The... More

I am so pleased to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your dinner with us. We have 14 white wines that can be bought by the bottle, 7 of these can be enjoyed by the glass, which we believe caters for all tastes. I am disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy the Chenin Blanc (which is from a small vineyard... More

This is about my 200th visit to the Holcombe Inn, just had a very good meal with my wife. She's the same one from visit 1. Clearly the outstanding food & wine has unadvertised benefits in the marital department. I haven't mentioned the Bar, which has very well kept beer and cider, a most impressive range of everything from Gin... More

We gathered 20 of our closest family and friends to celebrate my daughter's 21st for Sunday lunch and were welcomed and treated really well. We did pre order from a great menu and everyone had exactly what they ordered. The roast beef was perfect and the selection of vegetables delicious and perfectly cooked. A little more crunch on the roast... More

re visiting and still have to say this place does not let you down, the food is excellent and I think it has a new chef so keeping consistent with someone new is not often possible but is here. Also check out the cabins they are a lovely stay. Well done all keep up the good work.

We chose this as an overnight stopover and received a warm welcome on a rainy new year's day even though the staff must have been looking after guests till the small hours. We had a selection of starters for lunch and then a full meal in the evening which was excellent - the squid was so good I had it... More
