We dropped in on a Thursday night on the off chance of getting a table. We are not from the area and had been recommended the Holt. We were not disappointed. The staff were really friendly and happy to try to fit us in. Although the Tapas in the bar looked great so that would be have been just fine... More

Stopped off on the way from Okehampton to Romsey, having seen the website online. The Holt is beautifully presented, with a cosy bar downstairs and light and airy dining upstairs. Interesting artwork on the walls; loved the "Adam and Eve" toilets. Food was flavoursome, with a good variety, including tapas, which we didn't try, as well as Otter Ale, from... More

The food in this restaurant is superb and service excellent. Only criticism is that it can get a bit noisy.

A regular place to eat that never disappoints. They smoke a wide variety of produce themselves, so always worth having. Menu varies regularly and there is always a specials board. Really enjoyed the pork belly last time, not forgetting that you won't find better kept Otter beers anywhere

Booked a 9pm table From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome and not at all rushed. The staff were attentive and professional without being intrusive. The food was excellent - I ordered a vegetarian couscous dish which was extremely tasty and my husband had a fillet steak which was beautifully cooked. Both meals were... More

Met with friends on Saturday lunchtime. Fantastic food, friendly service. The biggest bonus is you can take children!! So rare to find such good food and child friendly. The toddler loved the trout pate and crispy poached egg.

I live local to the Holt so have used on number of occasions at lunchtime, enjoying the Tapas. This visit was for evening meal, a party of 6. We arrived at 6.30, and even at this time it was buzzing. Some of us had the starter, I had the 5 spice shredded duck leg which was very nice as was... More
