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.

I liked the Belgian Arms although I felt the vegetarian roast could have been better and perhaps two choices as there are for meat eaters. Crispier roast potatoes please and £11 for a glass of Albariño was excessive! I would go again in the future.

Lovely pub in a beautiful location. They had kindly put us inside as it was cold but due to covid we chose to sit outside. The seating was well set out and there were heaters but they weren’t very powerful. We totally appreciate it was our choice to sit outside.

We sat outside in the garden at a good distance from others, only problem was we where right next to the men's toilet and you could see inside as the window was open.
Bailey our waiter was outstanding. Food was lovely, however very small portion of chips and one tiny scoop of sorbet was a bit of a joke. Other than that an enjoyable evening.

Date night out with partner. The Belgian Arms has proven to be a friendly pub, with excellent food, (great taste and filling), and a good selection of beers on tap. Staff have always been friendly and welcoming despite the recent changes imposed on the pub trade in the last few months.
We will definitely go again.

We are regulars at The Belgian Arms due to living locally. This was our first time back eating for a while. The food is still amazing and excellent value with the Eat Out scheme. The only thing that was disappointing was lack of distancing with other customers but that is more the ignorance of people rather than the pub itself. We were happy with our table and felt safe until a large party arrived and crammed around 2 seats by the fire very close to us. Luckily they moved on and we enjoyed our time. Service was excellent very friendly and attentive staff. The best hand sanitizer I have ever encountered it smells amazing!

A lovely spot for a meal. Very thorough social distancing measures which made us feel very safe. Starter and main were lovely - the only reason not to give 5* across the board was the dessert. We decided to share a crumble but sadly it was full of nuts, which I don’t like and my husband can’t eat. This should have been marked on the menu. But other than that a lovely meal.

The Belgian Arms is set in the small village of Holyport. There’s plenty of parking and as soon as you walk in, you’re greeted with friendly staff. The outside space is under cover and also there are tables for the sun lovers, which look out onto the village green and delightful pond. The food is fabulous and the presentation is amazing. I would absolutely recommend this lovely pub for any occasion.

Service was great & girls were friendly but food (fish n chips) was all batter no fish.
As 50% off was ok , the burrgers were big and tasty according to my friends.
If going on a normal day the food is overpriced.

Restaurant empty although was advised fully booked when I tried to increase the table. Didn’t eat until 15.30 so think maybe the roast would have been better earlier on? Yorkshires dried out along with the cauliflower cheese and roast potatoes soft not crispy. Such a shame as had heard good reports and we are forever trying to find the perfect roast. The chicken liver parfait starter was delicious but £3 for a small slice of garlic bread in kids menu was a bit steep. You live and learn x

I would thoroughly recommend The Belgian Arms pub. The atmosphere, venue, location, food and service were amazing, and the COVID-19 measures were on top form too. Very polite and friendly staff, delicious food.... the halloumi fries and fried beef nuggets were so good. Also the burger is amazing would rate 10/10. Can’t wait to come back and sit in the garden too! Thank you!
