Situated in the pretty village of Holyport, set back from the green and overlooking the pond, The Belgian Arms is a favourite with locals and visitors to the area alike.

We offer really tasty British food that’s beautifully cooked, a great selection of wines and a really good pint.

The atmosphere is warm, relaxed and friendly. The Belgian Arms is the ideal spot for meeting up with family and friends, an informal business lunch or dinner and simply having fun.

Live music provided on the first Friday of each month from 8pm to 11pm.

    I have visited the Belgian Arms for over 40 years and have never been so disappointed. As a table of 5 with a £600 bill we did not skimp on food and wine but when we requested a sandwich for a driver who arrived early it was quite an argument despite offering whatever it cost to get some bread with butter on the side. No knife. No filling. When I gave feedback on what I had hoped for I was told that I would expect the same on future visits. He missed the point that we are not coming back

    The Belgian ArmsResponded 6 days agoWe apologies for the inconvenience. Our kitchen closes at 9pm when you requested a sandwich for your driver at 9:45pm our chefs were at home with there feet up with a cup of tea. From mid November we are looking at the possibility of keeping the kitchen open on a Friday and Saturday night until 9:30pm. For future visits the bar is open from 11:30am until 11pm 7 days a week. We have a selection of nuts, crisps, locally made biltong and olives to accommodate if our kitchen is closed.

    Lovely friendly country pub, good atmosphere, and cozy. Food and service is always great. I have to say they were busy on Sunday, and my Yorkshire pudding didn’t seem home made, but maybe they had run out. Everything else was gorgeous.

    There were four of us. We all had an EXCELLENT meal, main and desert. Gravity was very well looked after. Service was stretched as it was so busy but cheerful and efficient. A lovely dining experience. The kitchen really CARE about their cuisine. It’s why we keep coming back! Phil Ellis

    It was bank holiday Sunday so really busy, but a good atmosphere. Our waiter, Ilias, was very attentive and worked flat out to look after all the customers. We had a lovely Sunday roast and enjoyed our time in The Belgian Arms. We will be back! One point about the roast potatoes. They were cut too small and so some were hard rather than crispy with fluffy insides. Also, they don’t need “flavourings” on them, garlic salt or whatever. They would be much better like grandma used to make, for my taste, anyway. Meat was delicious and served to our requests for medium, rather than medium rare. Thank you.

    The Belgian Arms provided excellent food, service and ambience during the evening of my birthday meal. The team were very accomodating with bringing my young daugthers main course whilst we had a starter and we couldn't fault the service from our waitress, Orla. The highlight for me was so much choice as a gluten free guest, the chicken liver parfait starter and fish and chip main course were delicious. A beautiful setting with the pond and nesting ducks which kept my daughter entertained between courses. A favourite place of ours and we will definitely be returning.

    Only negative was that although we were sat in the outside area (which was lovely with huge umbrellas against the very hot sunshine) we were seated next to the part of the garden where people were smoking. The smoke smell was horrible so we had to ask to move. Otherwise all great. Will visit again

    The staff were all nice and polite. The food was great, I really enjoyed my meal. Nice wine list, would of been better if the New Zealand Malborough was sold by the glass, but that is just my preference. It was very relaxing being out by the pond.
