    Every dish was a taste sensation! Small portions but delicately put together. And all sourced locally. Good wine list with some excellent choices if you want to spend the money. Relaxed and friendly service. Simple Scandi decoration but I would comment on the lighting which could be a bit warmer.

    Such a warm and friendly welcome, from the moment we checked in to when we checked out. The attic room was cosy and well equipped, with refined, tasteful decor and furnishings. Shower was great size and the bath a nice touch. Staff were super helpful and went the extra mile where they could. The food standard was high, very delicious with creative flavours and perfectly proportioned courses, that all worked so well together. The steak was incredible with BBQ's peppercorn sauce that was to die for. Good wine selection, although could do with a few more reds on the list. The open kitchen, dining experience works well and you can be part of the process without feeling you are in the kitchen! Little to fault, was busy night as it was valentines but the noise level was fine and had a nice buzz. The village is pretty and they have done an amazing job on the look and feel with carefully thought through interior design. I would highly recommend this as a weekend retreat or special night getaway.

    The building and its restoration first class. Inside was excellent, cleverly combining the dining room with a small waiting area near a welcoming stove. The food delicious and my only regret was that we all ordered the same main course. The additional small opening choices were a good idea as that leaves room for a third course. My only regret was that we came on a Sunday when I think the accent was understandably on a more family menu. It only encourages me to return.

    This is our 4th visit and it has got better and better. We are experienced fine diners having gone out 2/3 times a month since we retired 4 years ago. In Somerset and Dorset this is in our opinion No 2,only behind Osip. Everything was pretty much perfect.

    Food: fish is the ultimate test, and our cod was timed to perfection. Cold roast beef was an unusual starter, but delicious. Soft English blue cheese was paired with malt bread, which worked well. Highly recommended!

    We waited so long to be served our Sunday roasts it is difficult to make positive judgement on other aspects. More than an hour after arrival we had eaten nothing; piping hot bread- delicious- eventually came, but we then waited at least 30 or more minutes for the first course. We were told that there had been a problem with one of our choices, but we subsequently waited an unacceptably long time for main courses. They were good but not nearly hot enough, and all needed more gravy served with them. Finally, having declined desserts because we could stay no longer, we had to ask twice for the bill, then waited ten more minutes for it appear. I had been told of similar unhappy experiences from friends but had decided to ignore them and we looked forward to this birthday celebration lunch; it was regrettably disappointing.
    Holm RestaurantResponded on 7 February 2024
    Good Afternoon Jennifer, Firstly, let me apologise, as we clearly haven't delivered the level of warmth, welcome and service that we strive to provide, made all the more disappointing by the fact that our mistakes have lead to you not enjoying the birthday celebration that you had planned. We were unfortunately struggling with staff member illness on Sunday, but that certainly should not have impacted your experience in the way you have described. I would love to discuss how to best provide some recompense for this, and perhaps give you another opportunity to be looked after by us. If you'd like to pick up on this, please do pop an email to info@holmsomerset.co.uk and we can go from there. I'll look forward to hearing from you, My apologies again and all the best Matt

    Great food. Explanations of each course on the Chef’s (tasting) Menu by the waiting staff were always a little rushed and not very clear. Not changing cutlery between courses was a little odd, so had to ask for clean cutlery. Staff could’ve been a little more attentive with drinks. Had to find a waitress to ask for drinks menu after finishing my drink 15 mins before, then had to ask another waiter 10 mins later to order a drink. Also they took my wife’s cocktail away before she had finished! The temperature of the room was incredibly hot - to the point where the lady next to us fainted! Worth saying though that these were all just picky comments, and definitely didn’t spoil what was a very lovely meal. Some very minor improvements and this would be 5/5 every time.
    Holm RestaurantResponded on 7 February 2024
    Good Afternoon Tom, I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed a lovely meal with us, even if it sounds like we haven't quite hit the level of service that we strive for, so thank you very much for taking the time to share some constructive feedback. We were struggling a little across the weekend with staff member illness, and I'm sorry that this clearly impacted your experience. Having said that, we have fed your comments back to the rest of the team, as these points suggest that there is potential for us to improve our communication, no matter the staffing levels. I do hope we'll be able to have a chance in the future to welcome you back in, and show you how we address these little bits and pieces. Thank you again and all the best, Matt

    Our lunch was probably the best we have had in Somerset or Dorset since we moved out of London 15 years ago. Everything we had was delicious, cooking of the highest quality from the open kitchen in which even the chefs were friendly and happy to chat. The service was excellent, friendly and knowledgable and the room design is very chic. This place is now our Go To.

    Great restaurant and place which we go to fairly regularly. Holm has got better and better since we first went on opening week. Their approach to Sunday lunch is really good too. The waitress we had probably needs a little more training / experience on service, glass handling etc. at this visit but overall the experience was great as ever and the food first class. Super special dish created by chef for the coeliac member of our party.
