    We booked at Holm for their weekend Dinner, Bed and Breakfast for one night. The chefs menu was fantastic, the dishes were exciting and flavours were amazing. The wine pairing partnered the dishes perfectly. The service by Annie was warm and friendly and she was very knowledgeable about the dishes and pairing wines. The breakfast the following morning was just as impressive as the dinner. The restaurant and hotel aesthetic was beautiful and the room was extremely comfortable with a cool feel. The welcome cookies on arrival to our room were a real treat! We will absolutely be back for another stay in the future!

    A wonderful restaurant, the food was outstanding ( can recommend the chef’s menu) as was the service. And a great wine selection too. We stayed in the hotel too, can highly recommend that as well. The rooms are stylish and quiet. Highly recommend Holm.

    We visited The Holm Friday 3rd May. A table with myself and three guests, we chose the Chef's Pairing meal. The quality of the food was outstanding, and the servers were very friendly, polite and explained each course as it was brought to the table. A 'niggle' was that we had ordered a bottle of champagne, but we were not offered champagne glasses, instead drank from wine glasses, and after the first glass was finished, we had to ask to have our glasses topped up. For a top class restaurant which has recently won an award for being the best in the South West, we would have expected more attention from the serving team.

    Greeted by warm welcome, informality and complete professionalism. The kitchen, centre stage, demonstrates intent. The menu is quite focussed, the tasting menu is absolutely recommended - accompanied with their choice of wine. Every course a delight, enough to savour, and perfectly timed. The staff, without exception, knowledgeable and happy to be there! My dairy-free preference was amply accommodated. The experience exceeded my expectations.

    Food is always good, service always not so. Waiting staff disappeared after our main was served (by Nicholas) so we enjoyed these but with our glasses empty. It was not a busy Friday lunch service so why did the waiting staff not do their rounds to check everybody was happy? We skipped desert and finishing off drinks as a consequence. A shame as we wanted to celebrate Holm’s Trencherman award.

    Holm offers a small but perfect menu choice. The Virgin Mary and Ginger Zinger drinks are delightful. The trout mousse was light and delicious and the lamb shoulder simply melted in the mouth. The pink fir potatoes with truffle mayonnaise were the perfect accompaniment. We were very well looked after by the staff - we even received an anniversary card for our special occasion. It was lovely to be able to view the kitchen team at work. Situated in a lovely town, with free car parks and on street parking very close to the restaurant this ticks all the boxes. We will be back.

    It was a birthday celebration for my friend visiting the area. We both were very impressed with the location and the creative and young vibe. We had the taster menu which we both enjoyed. They catered very well for my friend who is GF and did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and attentive and very knowledgeable guiding us through each course. The whole eating experience was a pleasure and would certainly return and tell friends.

    Splendid three course menu for £29 comprised of seasonal and local produce! What could be better? My only recommendation for the restaurant would be to put seat cushions on the wooden chairs. I heard other diners having to get up and stretch since they had glute pain - older people find hard seats very uncomfortable after a while, and you want people to be comfortable and stay for ages eating and drinking!

    So nice to see a modern restaurant in rural Somerset. The food was fine, the wine good value, the service OK, and the ambience good - especially if you were dining with friends. However, we were not overly impressed and felt it over priced in comparison with other top-rated restaurants in the area. Charging (if only £1) for tap water is rather cheeky too! We were not even asked how we'd like our £60 steak cooked. - apparently "it's automatic". The staff were also totally incapable of brewing a peppermint tea - it needs a lot more than a little sprig or two of garden mint! Nevertheless, we enjoyed the food we had and our evening out. Startera and shared main course (steak) for two with four small glasses of wine and one coffee came to £130.

    Good Afternoon Felicity, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback, although I'm sorry to hear that you haven't enjoyed the experience that we strive to deliver at HOLM. Would you mind dropping an email to info@holmsomerset.co.uk with a few more details of your reservation? That way we can certainly look to find a way of making up for your disappointing visit to us. As an initial note regarding the £1 Water charge on your bill, my apologies that this wasn't clear at the time, but this is an optional charitable donation, with our filtered water provided by Belu, who donate 100% of their profits to Water Aid, providing hygiene & sanitation infrastructure around the world. I'll look forward to hearing from soon, All the best Matt

    We arrived on a blustery lunch time….the fire was unlit so the immediate feeling was a bit chilly! Lovely waitress who greeted us warmly…made up for the lack of a fire! The food was well presented but served on cold plates and overall was only lukewarm. Nice pudding…Pannacotta…. Altogether a bit of a let down.

    Good Afternoon Stephanie, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, although clearly I'm sorry to hear that, aside from our welcoming staff, temperature was an issue throughout your visit to us. Of course, this certainly isn't the impression we aim to leave on any of our guests. Would you mind dropping an email to info@holmsomerset.co.uk with a few more details of your reservation and we can certainly look to find a way of making up for this disappointing experience.

    Our sixth visit to eat at Holm (in just over 12 months) but our first evening meal, overnight stay and breakfast. We love the food here but each of the 6 courses in the chef’s menu were outstanding - both vegetarian and regular options. And as always a great atmosphere with friendly relaxed service. Room and breakfast were equally lovely and the whole package was a bargain - can’t recommend this highly enough.
