A real gem of a pub, lots of nooks and crannies to create a great atmosphere. Part of out shared starter was the best Parma Ham I have ever tasted. My shoulder of lamb was also very good as was my wife's smoked duck. This...More

The worst meal that I have endured in many years. I am far from being fussy, but the food was a joke, as was the service. The steaks were inedible, and steak knives were not even available - which made cutting up these pieces of...More

Hi Erik, we are sorry you had a poor experience, it is not indicative of the standard we strive for at The Holly Bush. Since speaking with you the other day at the phone we have removed the steaks & discontinued the supplier replacing them...More

Great pub with perfect fish and chips and great selection of beers! It was very quiet for lunch during the week but seems to fill up in the evenings.
