“We are delighted to be running the Old Inn in Holt, the refurbishment has been wonderfully received. We have also put together a new menu, where all of the meals are prepared freshly in our kitchen and where we only use locally sourced ingredients, with our meat coming from both Mato’s in Blandford and Honey Brook Farm.” Jonathan explains.

Jonathan and Gabrielle have some big plans for the Old Inn over the next year, they plan to make much more use of the garden at the back of the pub, as well as becoming a focal point for the local villages around the pub. They are already planning a Tea Party and Hog Roast to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee. 

“We are pleased to welcome Jonathan and Gabrielle to the Old Inn in Holt. This traditional public house has such potential to be the heart of the local village. Already they have reinstated a quiz night, updated the food offer and fully marketed the internal refurbishment. We wish them every success in the future and look forward to supporting them on their journey.” Matt Kearsey, Hall & Woodhouse Business Partnerships Director.
