One of the best Sunday lunches I've had in a long time! Meat was cooked perfectly, potatoes were great and it is well priced. Great selection of real ales.

We pre-booked a table for friends who were visiting us. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the service was spot on. We ended up spending the whole night there! Will be visiting again in the new year.

We always take all comments both positive and negative on board! Unfortunately some people use this site for the wrong reasons. We looked into your" Two hour" comment. The results are all your 8 different checks catering for 18 people in total are time stamped so this was easy to do. All the food was out within 30 minutes of... More

What a treasure of a typical comfortable English pub. The staff go the extra mile to ensure any visit is an enjoyable one. The food is superbly prepared and served in a warm and friendly way, and a great range of real ales too. Feels just like home.

As someone who has eaten and drank at The Hollybush for almost 15 years, I feel the service we received on Saturday night was nothing short of insulting. To give the team credit, this is a great place to drink; we had my dads wake here earlier in the year with 100+ people, supplying our own food and it was... More

We booked for a celebration.. 50 people. Checked a number of times up to the date .. they kept changing the menu but no big deal. Got there on the night.. they only set up for 30 people and said we would need to do two sittings! Not acceptable but we had no option. The food basically ended up being... More

The Holly Bush, Alcester opened under new management on 2nd March 2015. A sister pub of local gems the Fleece Inn, Bretforton and The Cardinals Hat, Worcester the Holly Bush hopes to resume as the community's favourite watering hole. We offer quality real ales from local breweries, premium lagers and a fantastic range of locally sourced English Cuisine. During the colder months the log burners and open fires offer welcome respite from the chill and in the summer the garden and terrace provide the perfect sun trap.
