I have visited The Holly Bush on numerous occasions and have chosen a different meal each time. They always have a specials menu and indicate on the menu meals that are gluten free. It is a good priced pub lunch and they offer a choice of 2 Sunday roasts with trimmings. The portion sizes are good and I will return... More

Reasonably appointed rooms and breakfast. It's set in the countryside so it's not within walking distance to anything but this is not a problem if you have a car and there is a pub on site if you need a drink.

We loved our stay here, it was clean, friendly and extremely reasonable priced. The rooms are spacious and clean with good facilities. The breakfast is extremely good as was the evening meals we had. This certainly is a gem and we will return there and strongly recommend it.

Visited with another couple for an evening meal. Booked in advance, but there was no need as the place was empty. The service was great, but then it should be if there's no-one else to attend to. The food was underwhelming and ordinary. I knew from the size and variation offered on the menu, plus the specials, that it would... More

we have visited this restaurant many times before, but our last visit will be just that. Our last. Food was shocking not the usual home cooked menu and service was not with a smile. Surprisingly we wont be going again. I dont know if there have been some changes but the quality has definately gone downhill.

Our group consisted of 3 adults and one child, 9 years old. We booked a few days in advance and luckily enough they had one table left for us on the date required. The service was second to none, very helpful and friendly staff who were never far away to re-order drinks etc. Our food order was taken and starters... More

Visiting the Holly Bush is always a good experience. Food is good (good vegetarian range) and the service friendly and efficient. Staff treat you like a personal friend and do everything to make your visit enjoyable. Long may it continue.

Description
The Holly Bush Inn is one of the oldest pubs in the country dating back to the 16th Century. The Inn and Barns Accommodation are situated in the Bartington Green Conservation area. The area covers only 2.04 hectares and is the smallest conservation area in the Vale Royal Borough. There is a Grade II listing on the barn and pub, which was previously a working farm. The Holly Bush is a privately owned public house since 1993. The pub has recently been refurbished to restore the traditional thatch roof, provide a larger restaurant area and to convert the barns into 14 luxurious en-suite non-smoking bedrooms, now with FREE unlimited Wi-Fi internet connection.
