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.

We had the French Onion Soup, Belly Pork and Liver & Bacon and it was all very good quality. Service was good and premises was clean. It was a bit on the pricey side, but as they say, you get what you pay for. Will be going back there again

Food was usual good standard. Wasn’t overly busy with different staff this time and service wasn’t as quick as on previous visits. A simple sandwich and omelette order. This was only a concern as we all had calls to get onto at a specific time. Would definitely recommend as it’s a lovely local village pub with great space and service has been excellent on the many occasions we’ve been there.

I requested a cake for our 55th anniversary and this was checked out prior to having the meal and was freshly baked. The only criticism is that the menu still does not match the website - why is liver excluded AGAIN!!

Our only negative was the 90 minutes wait time with no apology and our food was given to us in stages meaning we had eaten quite a bit before the vegetables arrived.

On this occasion, service was timely and food was excellent. Great atmosphere within the enclosed glass area outside, which was enhanced by a beautifull warm September evening. Overall, a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Would recommend and return without hesitation.
