The Hoddington Arms
Brilliant food at a very affordable price in lovely setting
We met for a Tuesday lunch meeting with friends. Nice table by the fire, reasonable choice of beer. Set lunch of two or three courses was excellent. Mains of slow roast pork were good - decent portions, tender meat, crispy crackling and very nice potato purée. One of the group opted for cheese soufflé which was well received. Pleasant desserts and good coffee rounded things off nicely. Good food, well priced.
We booked a table for 3 but one of our party has major health issues. We were disappointed that the soup was unavailable but after a very short wait they advised us the chef had completed the next batch and was now back on the menu. It was delicious and well worth the wait. The service was great and we were very happy with our lunch, the overall experience was perfect. Thankyou so much for your consideration.
The food we had was very good. Well matched flavours and perfectly cooked.
The atmosphere was quite lively although wasn’t that full.
We were seated quickly and had our order taken quickly. Food arrived promptly but then the waitress who originally served us presumably finished their shift. After that the service was somewhat slow and lackadaisical
What a great find! The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and you were made to feel comfortable from the moment you walked in. I would definitely recommend this place and will be returning very soon - well done to all concerned!
Delicious food and excellent service.
Beautiful food and service as always
Quaint pub out in the country - food was excellent and highly recommend. Will be going back next time I am over in the UK.
Had a very relaxing and enjoyable Birthday celebration. The ambience was perfect. Enjoyed post lunch coffee in comfortable seats (not always available).
As always excellent food at a reasonable price in a lovely setting
Best roast dinner ever - Beef was sensational
Lovely Pub/Resteraunt set in a beautiful village, went on a Sat night having booked beforehand, welcoming staff and nice table selection with a good relaxed atmosphere, menu had good with varied choices but not too many, we both had the Sirloin which was cooked to perfection, starters and desserts were very nice too, all in all a superb evening and we will definitely return. Thanks all at the Hodd !
Delicious meal and helpful, friendly service. We will be back !
Yes I would but with some comments - Ladies loo not working and V unpleasant. Restaurant cleanliness just about OK. Service by one member of staff good, some others very glum!
Food was OK for price but not as great as advertised.
Could have been more welcoming as it was a family event for 3 adults which I hosted, they did say they enjoyed the food.
Amazing service and a delightful evening.
Another trip to The Hoddington Arms, it never disappoints. Great service and great food as always.
The food was classy and exceeded our expectations. A great pub in a great location with great service and food.
And again we are not disappointed. We came to celebrate our daughter's 13th birthday, we come here for celebrations most of the time because you know you're never going to leave having not had the best time. Food is second to none, the staff always friendly and efficient, the atmosphere always warm and happy. What's not to love?! Still top of my list of places to go.
Excellent food, excellent and friendly service, will certainly be going again.
Always a fantastic menu & service. We also took our dog this time too who enjoyed his lunch & first pub experience.
A lovely visit to this wonderful pub. Really helpful team on the phone, fab atmosphere, great food, with the Cote Du Boeuf out of this world - I can't remember the last time I ate such a great tasting steak and to top it off the beef dripping chips were so moorish! A great night. Thank you.
Very helpful and quick service food was good and good value
Excellent lunch, great food both ingredients and cooking. Much enjoyed
First visit to this restaurant to eat, and it did not disappoint my wife or I, despite being a bit pricier than we usually consider.
The restaurant was very quiet to start with, (we like it quiet), but the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere throughout the evening.
All the food was served quickly, arrived piping hot, and was cooked perfectly.
Portion sizes were more than sufficient, and it was clear that a great deal of thought and care had gone into the menu, created by people who care about food and presentation.
The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the evening. They were attentive but not overbearing.
All in all, a lovely country restaurant, with excellent food, staff and atmosphere. A restaurant I hope to revisit many times, starting as soon as possible.
Lovely place for a special occasion , however was very disappointed with the food! When paying so much for the food you would expect to be able to get a sauce of some sort with your steak, we were offered mayonnaise or ketchup with a very expensive steak and would of liked some decent crackers on a very expensive cheese board. We adored the decor, however we were very disappointed that we were sat in the corner with a very wobbly table with spider cobwebs all over the wall. This was an anniversary dinner which we were really looking forward too! The only amazing comment we could really give is, that the staff were very attentive and kind and considerate of our needs for our special occasion. Overall Very disappointed with the food, but enjoyed the atmosphere, staff, and drinks. Would not recommend for special occasions.
Excellent food and good service. Will be going back and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
We having been going to the Hodd for many years, it is our local. We were a little disappointed this time, we waited nearly an hour for our main courses, my steak was tough and over cooked, we didn't receive much service once the main courses had been delivered, we had to go to the bar to order drinks and to request the bill. All in all not our usual experience, left a bit deflated.
Delightful staff. Nothing too much trouble . Food was fabulous across the board. A bit pricey for us but well worth it.
Excellent establishment, we have made many great family memories here
Excellent quality, locally sourced food and drink, with great friendly service. A fantastic pub.
Absolutely lovely place to eat and drink. Knowledgeable barperson and very pleasant waitperson. Interesting menu well cooked food, piping hot. Good varied wine list from reasonable price to “pushing the boat out” . Overall a very pleasant experience. Back next week!
Good location, good food, excellent service. briliaaaaaaaaaant
Food and service excellent as always. Could do with the background music rather quieter.
We had a 3 course lunch. The food was amazing! Especially the crackling bits and the chateaubriand 😜
Will definitely return
Fantastic good quality fresh food. Pay a bit more for it than at some pubs but I didn't mind for such a fab lunch.
Our waitress made us feel very welcome. Excellent friendly service
Service was excellent Toby was very efficient and welcoming. Bar staff were also friendly and attentive.
Food was excellent (four people eating).
We will be going back again.
Excellent food and very friendly service. Will certainly be returning.
