Came here on Easter Sunday with my family and I cannot praise the staff enough for their friendliness. At first was struggling to order due to my younger brother who suffers with various disabilities. He struggles a lot with social situations. A lovely waitress named Taylor must have overheard our conversation and came over to talk to us, persuading and... More

We love this country pub but it wasn't up to standard on our last visit. Ribeye steak dry, we were charged for a sweet that we had cancelled because of the long wait. Ladies toilets were a mess. However king prawn linguine and venison were very tasty

This is a lovely historic old pub with friendly bar staff and a great kitchen. What could be wrong? They have recently changed the bar area exchanging lovely old furniture for tall tables and bar tools more suited to a Manchester night club. They look awful are difficult to sit at . Completely changes the ambience.

12 of us went for mum's 70th birthday celebration (age range 3 to 75). We were made to feel very welcome and the staff were attentive from booking the table, pre-ordering food and us dropping off the cake. Everyone appeared to have a good time and the pub was full with diners and drinkers. I would highly recommend reserving a... More

Another brilliant meal at Holts Arms. Just gets better and better. We had family visiting from The Midlands and when they come to Billinge, they always ask "Can we go to the Holts Arms?" Everyone amazed with the meal the other night. Brilliant food, beer and staff. Cannot be beaten.

Another superb meal at the foot! We met family here for a meal because to be honest we won't go anywhere else. The fire was roaring and the gin was flowing freely. ( this is the place to be for gin lovers!) Every single one of us cleaned our plates completely, whether it was the fish and chips or the... More

Fabulous Home cooked food in a 17th century inn with excellent wines and quality cask ales, roaring fires in winter, stunning beer garden in the summer. One of the best little pubs in Lancashire!
