The atmosphere is welcoming and Authentic. I had the Eggs Benedict and it was truly one of the most delicious brunches I have ever had. If it wasn't so far from my home I'd visit much more regularly. Worth every penny

I find myself on business in this neck of the woods regularly and have enjoyed excellent breakfasts and lunches here before. Delighted to see that they now have all day brunch available. I had the eggs Benedict and they were to die for. Don't know why anyone struggles with parking in Holt when you can have fantastic food here at... More

We 'popped' into Back to the Garden for lunch and wasn't disappointed. The staff were pleasant and welcoming. The restaurant is very bright and the vaulted ceiling gives it a spacious feeling. The menu is varied and we enjoyed our choice which was served hot and plentiful.

You know how it is when you were impressed by somewhere where you once had great food only to return and then be disapointed? Well, it doesn't happen here. I visit Norfolk once or twice a year and always visit Back to the Garden and have never yet been disapointed. My only problem is getting through the shop and into... More

After the snowdrop walk at Walsingham we were on the way to Holt for lunch. I saw the signs and recognised the place from reading reviews here. Husband hates parking in Holt (or lack of it). So we stopped and were very pleased we did, even selected items for tea from the deli. We chose from the specials board- mainly... More

The restaurant You can eat under the ceiling of the massive eighteenth-century oak barn or, if it's warm, amongst the flowers in our garden, a place of serenity and calm that's good for the soul. The Butchery All of the Angus-sired beef, lamb, chicken, geese and turkeys on the butcher's counter have been raised organically at our farm. The rare breed, outdoor reared pork is sourced locally. The Deli You will find many of the best British artisan cheeses, organic salami and a choice of food from our kitchen. The Shop We have a zest for sourcing producers who reflect our own ideals, for whom quality and provenance count. The wine is selected in conjunction with Fields, Morris and Verdin, the wholesale distributors for Berry Bros and Rudd.
