Stayed at this pub during early march when snow was all around. Very friendly service, cosy and warm room and very good breakfast. Had a couple of drinks in the small pub and the locals were chatty and welcoming.

All meals were a good size, tasty and freshly cooked to order. Very reasonably priced. There weren’t very many customers so it was a little lacking in atmosphere in the restaurant - which was a shame because I would recommend the food to anyone

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.
