Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My husband and I had our joint 40th and 50th birthday party at the holt on Saturday 4th May. It was a fabulous venue, and we were very well looked after by the Holt staff. They went above and beyond to make us feel relaxed...and our guests welcome. I would highly recommend it for any gathering you are having. The view from the balcony was amazing. Thanks to everyone involved. Five stars, and we will definitely use the venue again.More

Very welcoming staff in the bar/cafe upstairs and excellent toilet facilities. Evening menu looks inviting including fish and chips, burgers etc Nice tea and coffee, but shame that the atmosphere is spoiled by pop music playing too loudly to hear conversation. This problem will be...overcome when it is warm enough to sit outside where the views of the cricket pitch will be superb.More

Hello, thank you so much for your review and lovely comments about our menus and venue. I am very sorry to hear that there was pop music playing indoors - this is sounds unususal as we mostly have subtle background music. I do hope you...More

Booked Sunday lunch with family & friends, for a large group - 30 people. Greeted with a warm welcome and drinks ordered straight away, food was brought out and was fantastic. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Really enjoyable afternoon

First time at the newly opened restaurant within Budleigh Cricket Club. Lovely interior with direct views onto the green. Sunday roast lunch for a very mediocre two course meal for £24.95. Apart from the tender roast beef which was cooked to perfection everything else was...below par, particularly the dessert. Expensive considering the quality. Attentive staff.More

Really nice new venue, the huge windows give nice views of the estuary. Great coffee from the guy who was really diligent in how he made them.

Mothering Sunday was special this year as we dined overlooking the River Otter, in the wonderfully friendly and professional The Holt restaurant. A delicious Sunday roast was followed by a decadent chocolate brownie and Devon clotted cream. We would thoroughly recommend a visit.

I don’t normally leave reviews but the food here was so good that I had to. Went in for a Sunday roast and was really impressed with the quality. I had the beef and it was beautiful - just how I like it cooked! Service...was great and the view was even better. Well done Budleigh! Nice to have somewhere I can recommend to othersMore

Such a beautiful spot and really nicely done out. Fun atmosphere and helpful bar staff. They are making a really good (and successful) effort to make this a community venue alongside a nice place to drink and eat - good luck!

Best beer garden in the area. Great food, excellent selection of beers and spirits and all run by very nice people. Sunday dinner is to die for. Strongly recommend a visit even in the off season.

This is the perfect spot for a morning coffee, an evening drink or a Sunday roast. The food is superb and there’s no better view down towards the mouth of the Otter and seafront, especially from the elevated pavilion balcony with relaxing outdoor seating. A...fine selection of beers tops off the whole experience.More

We visited The Holt for a function this weekend, and had a fantastic evening. There was a really warm welcome from the team as we arrived, and once upstairs, plenty of hands behind the bar to make light work and ensure we had our drinks...quickly. The views from here really are second to none, and are framed beautifully by the contemporary glass frontage and balcony. All in all this is a fantastic, versatile venue, and we're looking forward to visiting again.More
