Parts of Byford date back to the fifteenth century and this was one of the few buildings in Holt to escape destruction during a devastating town fire in 1708. It has plenty of original features and atmosphere, and the dining areas bustle with visitors from early morning to mid-evening.


A good deli serves a range of bread, salads, sandwiches, stone-baked pizzas and cakes. Waiting staff are largely young and enthusiastic with energy levels that rise to the task of keeping a constant turnover of customers fed and watered.
