The Feathers, situated in the heart of Holt’s bustling high street, has reopened its doors to guests after an extensive refurbishment throughout the property.

The traditional pub and restaurant was bought by East Anglian based hospitality group, Chestnut in October 2021.

The interiors of this community favourite have been redesigned, breathing a new lease of life into the property which features various dining spaces throughout, an outdoor terrace, new coffee, and cocktail bar as well as a private dining space.

The property’s refreshed décor and furnishings reflect the Norfolk countryside with upcycled rustic wooden features, colourful furniture, open log fires all complemented with antiques and collectibles to help reinstate its character and celebrate its history. The Feathers is perfect for those venturing inland from the nearby Norfolk Coast where dogs and muddy boots are encouraged.

The revamped menu focuses on locally sourced produce including coastal favourites and can be found at the heart of the restaurant’s new themed evenings. Guests can enjoy Mussels Night on Tuesdays and Steak Night on Thursdays, or for those looking to share can order from the new Grazing menu  a selection of sharing platters or simply enjoy a traditional roast on Sundays.

Philip Turner, founder of Chestnut, is all in on putting Norfolk on the map with three acquisitions in Holt in the last year, he said: 

“The team and I are incredibly excited and proud to reveal The Feather’s new look and feel to the local community. We have lots of exciting plans to bring to the area while paying homage to the pub’s roots. Great food and hospitality will be at the heart of what we do.”

“We really look forward to welcoming guests, new and old to The Feathers and working alongside the fantastic local businesses to promote Holt as a destination for food lovers and to anyone who is looking for a rural escape in one of Britain’s most beautiful areas.”

The property’s 14 bedrooms have also been redesigned to offer a welcoming bolthole after a day of exploring the coast. The art-deco styled bedrooms have a modern feel with spacious ensuites, crisp white linens, and bold patterns in dark greens and navy tones which complement the upcycled wooden furniture and gold accessories.

Chestnut, one of the UK’s fast-growing hospitality businesses, has also recently acquired The Lawns and The Wiveton Bell, both in the local area.
