Staying at the Lime Wood hotel for three nights gave us ample chance to explore the tempting Hartnett Holder & co menu. And having a particular liking for pasta, I made full use of the occasion to put together different combinations. My Anti Pasta was followed by a Primi of reduced size pasta dish, followed by a fuller size Secondi. This is of course not to the average persons taste, such as my wife. She, like most diners, had the more usual meat or fish course for her Secondi. But as for myself, I simply wanted to explore the wonderful pasta dishes of that most wonderful chef, Mr Holder. I really loved the gnocchi, it was simply wonderful. A superb taste of cauliflower cheese. But the best by far (In my opinion) was the incredible pumpkin ravioli. This was so good, I felt compelled to have it again on our final evening. Mr Holder is truly a most creative master of pasta. And I will mention the very attentive sommelier, who steered my wife through her wine selection with good choice, interest and perfectly clear diction. A very friendly young lady, much better than some mumbling old males that frequent other fine dining establishments. The restaurant is a very pleasant place to be. With friendly young staff and a modern feel. We have eaten at Hartnett Holder & co many times now and the evening always produces a sighting of Mr Holder as he stalks through the restaurant. Very well done Mr Holder, very well done indeed.
