“Quality local”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Our first visit on a Friday evening to The Holt. We were seated upstairs where an al a carte menu is served at the weekend. Tapas is served down stairs at the weekend. My meal was Chicken breast with crushed potato and vegetables. I had changed the Gnocchi potato as I am not a fan of flour and potato.

We will be back.

“Great Local Food and Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

The Holt is a buzzing and atmospheric bar and restaurant located at the bottom of Honiton High Street. The premises is managed and owned by the same Devonian family who own the famous Otter Brewery. The two sons who run The Holt have done a great job; Apparently, one is head chef with the other handling the management duties. The Holt is a very sociable place and clearly the management know what they want to do and how to deliver it. Beautifully presented, The Holt is great place for sociable drink or, a lovely meal.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here on our way to the airport so wanted a quick tasty lunch. Never been here before, had a lovely warm welcome. I had a glass of Pinot rosé which was good, and we selected a number of tapas. All very tasty, see the photo! Nice quick service & perfect lunch stop.

“A very pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We are normally wary of high street pubs, but a friend recommended The Holt -- and what a surprise it was, offering a warm welcome and nice atmosphere, and an amazingly extensive menu. I ordered an unusual vegetarian dish, which was truly delicious. The service was excellent and prices very reasonable. They also have a nice selection of real beer from local brewers. Highly recommended.
