We've been regular visitors to the Holmbush for years and last weekend we went out for tea. We reserved a table at 4.30pm on a Sunday eve as had our 18month old son with us with the hope we'd be eating by 5pm ish. We got there and it wasn't very busy so this was ideal, however we had a... More

There is a good choice of food on the menu along with extras on the specials board. The staff were excellent, checking to make sure the food was ok, and it was served in a... More

Been here a few times over the years and have never had cause to complain. Staff are polite and courteous. Meals are pretty good although I had my usual mixed grill( which is not cheap ) which I found to be a little lacking in portions. Not sure what's changed as previously portions were considerably more generous. Hopefully our next... More

Whilst here on holiday we decided to take a meal here. We'd previously come here two years ago and decided to come again. The food was lovely. Can't fault the food or the service. For family of 3 came to just over 30 quid which wasn't too bad. Nice friendly staff too

We have eaten here many times. It went through a rough patch a couple of years ago (needed some tlc ) food didn't suffer. Always very busy, really need to reserve a table. Well worth a visit, large portions and friendly staff.
