Holt (The) Honiton

178 High Street, Honiton, Devon, EX14 1LA
A good pub with a vibrant atmosphere, with an upstairs restaurant (under the leadership of Angus McCaig) serving serious food.

Lunch brings freshly-cut Sandwiches, a selection of Tapas dishes, plus a few one plate light mains – such as 'Smoked Haddock Rarebit (sic), with Tomato, Balsamic & Salad Leaves'; 'Wild Mushroom & Cornish Blue Pastry, with Honey-Glazed Shallots' and 'Game Terrine with Spiced Lentils, Fine Beans, Pickled Cauliflower & Soused Blackberries'.

In the evening the menu expands. An autumn snapshot bringing 'Fresh Oysters with Pickled Cucumber, Beetroot Jelly & Crisps'; 'Pan-Roasted Quail with Apricot & Pistachio Stuffing, Buttered Cabbage & Lardons' and 'Tuna Carpaccio with Fresh Herb Salad, Roasted Peppers & Hazelnut Dressing' among the starters.

'Grilled Fillet of Sea Bass, Olive Potatoes, Tiger Prawns, Fennel & Roasted Tomato Sauce'; 'Braised Lamb Shoulder with Parsnip Purée, Fondant Potato, Marjoram Peas & Spiced Jus' and 'Poached Chicken Breast with Crispy Leg, Baby Onions, Mushroom Mousse & Tarragon Sauce' listed among the mains.

To finish – 'Honey Roast Figs with Greek Yoghurt Pannacotta & Toasted Almonds'; 'Treacle Tart with Clotted Cream' and 'Vanilla Rice Pudding with Spiced Plums & Oat Crumble' might be there to tempt you.

Service is friendly & enthusiastic.
