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.

Really nice vibe to the place, friendly and buzzy and food very good and reasonably priced for the quality. Stays shy of being too 'restauranty' so keeps that feel of a pub but a very good one. Convenient parking and table service was very good.

Lovely meal on a Saturday night, pub and restaurant were busy in a good way! Excellent service throughout meal. Staff were friendly and polite. Shared starter of chicken pate - really tasty, smooth & light pate. Main course - absolutely fantastic venison loin, with rosti and carrot and cumin puree. It really was 10/10. Burger was very tasty but a little bit dry (well done rather than pink but I guess that is the safer cook for restaurants nowadays).
Had a lovely tasting coconut panna cotta with candied figs - great taste but sadly not really a panna cotta as it wasn't set. More of a thick soup! Still yummy though!
All in all a great meal, not perfect but would definitely return as food was really tasty and it's a lovely place with a buzzy atmosphere and good customer service.

I would describe The Belgian Arms is a cross between fine dining and an upscale pub. Good food and friendly staff. Parking was not a problem.

Perfect pub - cute interiors, charming and spacious garden, delicious food. Had been recently and came back because we loved it so much. Even though burger was not on the Sunday menu, the chef made it for us anyway! Perfect pub lunch - we will be back for sure.
