The Old Inn is a traditional country pub in the heart of the idyllic village of Holt. Situated close to the historic town of Wimborne Minster, The Old Inn is the perfect destination when you fancy a homemade, traditional pub meal. With real fires, a beautiful garden and fantastic service, this pub is definitely worth a visit. We have worked hard to put together a menu that offers something for everyone. Everything is freshly prepared at the Old Inn, from our Chicken Liver paté, to children’s chicken nuggets. We pride ourselves that all of our meals are traditionally cooked using largely locally sourced ingredients and our seasonal specials are definitely worth looking at too, as well as our delicious desserts! We aim to provide a prompt, efficient and friendly service and we can cater for all types of parties.

    Lovely celebratory meal. Food was delicious, we had 2 courses so sampled the pate, tempura prawns and Camembert. All delicious. For mains the sea bass, rib-eye and pie. Steak was cooked to perfection and the sea bass was full of flavour. Excellent service and suggestions for drinks.

    This is a lovely country pub. The outside seating area is lovely, lots of plants and flower and comfy seating. The food was really good. It is pricey, but I had zero complaints with mine, so I was happy to pay that price. My only issue was that we inadvertently ordered a really expensive bottle of wine, but didn't actually see a wine list so weren't quite prepared for that cost at the end. Partly our fault for not asking, but unusual not to have a wine list with the menus. The staff were fab. Would absolutely recommend - just ask for the wine list before you order the Malbec ;)

    Four of us went on Sunday lunch time. We received a friendly welcome when we arrived. We were shown to our reserved table. A guy came to take our drinks order. Then we were given our menus. Lots of choice. Starters two Brie one Camembert and a prawn cocktail which was full of prawns with a very tasty sauce. Two pork belly roasts and two chicken breasts in a lovely mushroom sauce, all with a selection of freshly cooked vegetables. One battered banana, one cheesecake and two lots of mint choc chip scoops. All the food was neatly presented. The service was professional and friendly all the various staff seemed very happy and helpful. The prices have gone up a bit, as they have in most places, but we felt was fine for the quality of food and service.

    A previous visit for a roast on Mother’s Day was excellent but on this occasion the food was a bit disappointing. Four of us had burgers which at £18 and £20 per potion was a tad basic to say the least. The meat quality was good but some salad wouldn’t have gone amiss and maybe some additional greens or peas for that price!
