The Holte Extends Menu/Hours

The Holte has been evolving as the club have taken the feedback given to it on the pub by its punters. The opening hours have now changed and the menu has been modified (as below)

11- 11pm Mon – Sat (match dependent)
Sundays 11-6.

I went last Friday night and must say the fillet steak was delicious...!

A brief history...

‘1897’ is emblazoned above the Holte portals as a record of major enhancements made to the Holte Hotel, as it was then known. But the building was in existence in the 1870s and probably goes back even further. It was once a focal point for people who came to the former Aston Lower Grounds, with views the menagerie, the gardens, the duck pond and many other entertainment features – and once hosted the visit of Buffalo Bill and his Wild West Circus. At one time, the entrance to the Lower Grounds entertainment was directly behind the Holte Hotel – into what is now the Holte End car park. The Holte Hotel was also a post-match meeting place for sportsmen. The ‘Magnificent Meadow’ was a sporting adjunct of the Lower Grounds and was the scene of football, cricket, cycling and athletics.

Think they are set to do some buy one get one free offers in the papers soon, if they do I'll try to get a printable version on this site to get the same offer.
The Fear
Read reports of damage to the place during Blues v Villa.... over enthusiastic celebrations by some Villa fans in there. If true that is a ****ing disgrace a) because this place is ours and has been lovingly brought back to light by an enlightened owner and b) What signal does it send out to our owners? Thisis the type of thing to make them lose heart. IF this is true I am bloody embarrassed. Please tell me I have been wound up and there were no idiots present.

Pretty good looking menu there. I'll have to get my good buddy Col8 to treat me next time he's up in Brum. O.K. Col?

Fear, am I dreaming or is there a Christmas get together/ intro meeting for Vital Villa at some time over Christmas - after one of the games?
Gordonsleftboot
Gordonsleftboot: Yes there is a vital get-together on Friday 21st December, night before Man City home game.
randy.stand
Thanks randy.stand. I come down from N Wales so please accept my apologies.
Gordonsleftboot
Apologies accepted Gordonsleftboot. Your non-appearance will ensure more beer available for randy.stand. He'll thank you for that.
