Once again, lovely meal with relatives. Always excellent friendly service, great menu and cooked to perfection.
Went out for my wife’s birthday. Also stayed over night. The food and restaurant is very good. The town was quite quiet for a Saturday night.
Lovely relaxed evening, good food, good value and pleasant staff, who even rustled up a candle and came out singing Happy Birthday for one of our guests!
Had a beautiful meal mid week with me fiancé, both the food and service were exceptional. Would highly recommend for any occasion.
Lovely restaurant, amazing food, great atmosphere and the staff are incredibly polite and helpful.
Have visited Byfords on many occasions and it never disappoints.
We chose the grazing dishes which were delicious.
For us the outstanding part was the service.Our server/ waiter was polite charming and just knew when to make an appearance or enquiry.
He made it for us.Well done to your staff training
Great location wonderful food, lovely staff and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it.
Out third trip here spread over about five years of coming to Norfolk. Feels like it is now trading on past glories unfortunately
This is a wonderful 'go to' place, I just love the whole Byfords thing. Felt very welcome, waiting staff were very attentive & enthused. Food was exceptional and good selection of drinks too. Lovely location and very relaxed & enhoyable setting. Good facilities and very clean. Great place for my family birthday celebration. Easy to book & find. Maybe too many e-mails & overzealous advertizing. Shame about the link with Kayak as they were not in good standing with Greenpeace. But overall would recommend & keep for special occasions & let's hope kayak become more environmentally aware.
Beautiful room, very comfortable and well appointed. Restaurant staff and reception staff very friendly and helpful. Food of a high standard and the only negative comment related to my wife's meal on the second night which she felt did not meet with her approval. She was offered a change but it would have been too late as I had already received and started my meal.
Have eaten at byfords many times
We both had the barbecue brisket of beef on a brioche bun and the beef was very tough and a little on the stale side
The service however was very charming
We thoroughly enjoyed our time: great room, nice view of the town, very relaxing, very friendly and good food. Jodie was an outstanding member of staff; very helpful and friendly. The food on occasion took a bit too long coming and breakfast perhaps a wee bit cold on the first day.
Excellent meal and really friendly staff. Made ‘down to earth’ look like amazing. Amazing atmosphere for kids too.
Was a lovely meal but odd atmosphere. Glad there was 8 of us to create a bit of one.
The food was lovely and the service was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble for the young gentlemen that served us. Our food was hot, tasty and we were served very quickly. We will definitely come again!
Lovely eating place. Informal, friendly & efficient service. Food that punched above the price in terms of vfm. Lots of almost private dining spaces which had a nice intimacy to it.
Decent food, perhaps portions on latge side. Friendly service.
We enjoyed a very nice meal. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The staff didn't rush us onto the next course. Lovely evening.
We booked Byfords for a get together of two families - 4 grown ups, 4 children - and had a wonderful time. Food was excellent, staff were friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxing. Would recommend thoroughly.
Yes I would because of the very high level of service and attention of all the staff and the high standard of the rooms and public areas. It was a real pleasure to stay and eat at Byfords and most certainly would be very happy to recommend Byfords to a friend. My only slight area of concern was the music being played in the restaurant a bit loud and boring but that aside the stay was great.
Great food however service would have been better with a smile.
As always, good food and great staff. Will always be our go to place in holt.
Consistently great food and excellent service from Byfords. A place you know will be great, even when they are really busy.
Absolutely first class. Great food and even better service! Perfect in every way.
I booked via OpenTable in advance stated that I was interested in their3-2-1 MENU, as found on their website. The 3-2-1 offer is now available on the specials menu!
3 COURSES: Two grazing dishes, one main, one dessert - £20 per person
2 COURSE: One main plus your choice of two grazing dishes or one dessert - £15 per person
1 DRINK INCLUDED: Choose from regular soft drink, 330ml corona, 175ml red, white or rosé
However I received the following email before arrival:
Thank you for booking with us.Unfortunately I need to inform you that our menu 3-2-1 is no longer available.Very sorry for in convenience to cause,Kind regards Alisa.( full marks to Alisa for that)
We went on the night and had a la Carte. The service by staff was good.
HOWEVER MANAGEMENT MUST BE POOR because even so This 3-2-1 supposed to have finished before 7.3.2019 it was on the night still on the out of door Menu and I just now Friday 15.3.2019 checked Byfords online Menu and found 3-2-1 on there again. The might call their Pizzas POSH, but contravene trading rules by tempting customers in with invalid offers.
We were staying the night at Byfords so decided to eat there in the evening. They have a great deal on at the moment, two courses for £15 or three courses for £20 which includes a drink from a select few, we decided to opt for this and cannot fault. Service was great, food delicious. They even boxed up some of our pizza left over so we could take it away with us. Very pleasant meal. Would definitely eat there again.
Excellent food and service in a great town, whether you visit for lunch or as we did for Sunday evening meal there's a friendly welcome and a cosy atmosphere, never too noisy even when busy with a great range of menu choices. Plus the deli is a great bonus as you can take some tasty things home for another day
A lovely restaurant in Holt, tucked away from the High Street. Excellent choice of food and wine with service to match.
Fantastic service, looking after Eliza & her friends on her birthday.
Our welcome was warm, and the attention to detail made our stay really special - lilies in the bathroom, and every member of staff going out of their way to make sure we had a good time. One lady even stood out in the street in the cold, pointing out where a particular shop was that I wanted to visit! The delicatessen was also marvellous. The ambience was wonderful, and we would recommend the jazz night! We will be back!
Great food. We had the three for two offer which was very good value. Lovely Jazz evening with live music included
The ambiance and the service was very good, but, the food on the dishes was far too small, lacking in flavours. The desserts were great.
We love Byfords! Particularly the Jan/Feb menu which is great value on tasty food. Visited a few times recently 😊😊
Jazz night Fab. Great band.
I was even surprised by receiving my own individual birthday cake and the staff all sang happy birthday to me. I was overwhelmed - we had a lovely evening.
Not the best food we’ve had there. All seemed a little over cooked and dry
A very friendly place,nothing too much trouble and some nice little touches to make the stay memorable
The food was not great. Fatty ribs with potato croquettes left me feeling full but did not find it particularly tasty.
Lovely food, attentive staff, we’ve been here several times over the years but this time the only downside was the price! the cost of our meals, desserts & drinks was steep!
Staff are amazing. Friendly, welcoming. Food is top class. Bit disappointed as I asked for a bottle of champagne to be on the table but it’s a minor point. Still had an excellent valentines evening meal.
Lovely setting with lots of original character, food was exquisite. Would recommend to anyone
