Review on Byfords of Holt

Billed as a 'higgledy-piggledy world of pleasure', Byfords occupies what is thought to be the oldest building in Holt (the cellar possibly dates back to the fifteenth-century). Nowadays, it's lively mix of deli, café, restaurant and 'posh B&B', with all manner of extra treats including takeaways and live jazz (the last Wednesday of each month).

The café makes an easy-going hangout for breakfasts, elevenses, a light lunch with friends or some daytime business. Deli boards, plates of charcuterie and cheeses, plus hand-thrown pizzas, classic salads and pasta are the staples, with lush desserts, ice cream sundaes and cakes for those with a sweet tooth.

Evenings see the introduction of Mediterranean-style restaurant dishes and great-value fixed-price menus dealing in the likes of sea bass grilled in sea salt with samphire, peas, smoked prawns and local new potatoes or belly of pork with balsamic onions, mushrooms, smoked paprika and white bean stew. There's paella too, plus lemon posset with poached red fruits to finish.
