Nice well presented and tasty food in a lovely country pub atmosphere
Perfect place for any occasion. Lovely friendly pub with great food.
I really liked the day to the Hollybush. Really enjoyed it. Looks like good place to work. Staff look happy. Look after them please.
A hidden treasure. Lovely staff, well looked after and food was great.
Lovely venue dispute the rain
Good service, lovely food
Definitely felt safe Re COVID, tables well spread out and handgel and masks available
Excellent food and service. Good choice on menu. Blankets provided when it got chilly. Overall a lovely evening.
Surprised that only one of the serving staff was wearing a face mask
Great service good food and a pleasant ambiance.
We had a nice walk to the Holly Bush and were able to sit outside in the sunshine and have a drink for the first time in a while. The staff were all great and it was a nice chilled atmosphere.
Lovely meal for two. Food and staff were both amazing. My only complaint would be tabled felt a little close but understand they need to maximise tables underneath outside cover. Also really loved the 90s soundtrack :) beautiful outdoor area with lots of seating. Staff very attentive and made good recommendations for food. Will definitely go again.
Excellent food as always, great service and a bonus having a marquee during these eat outside times. Highly recommended
Very good food and service
Staff were very friendly and all felt covid safe
Fab food, great service and safe atmosphere- will be back x
Very good food options and a great atmosphere. I would definitely recomend.
Food was very nice fish portion was like a whale would recommend
The staff were a credit to you, all very polite and helpful
The puddings were expensive and disappointing !!
Heaters would have helped as we were all cold tne blankets helped a bit
It was so nice to be eating out again. Staff were friendly and attentive. Menu still limited but still enough choice. Nobody had a bad meal, all cooked well. Toilets clean. Socially distanced and one way system.
Lovely food and great service. Very helpful staff and friendly
We enjoyed our visit, the food was very nice and the service very good. The only grumble I have, was that the table we sat at was right by the opening and the wind was making it uncomfortable, even though I had two coats on.
Lovely food and service. We were a tad cold in the marquee
Great as always, it had the best GF pudding I’ve tasted.
A superb meal, ambience and service were great. Loved the additional goodie bags for the kids...a really lovely touch. Will be visiting again without doubt.
We sat outside in the sun which was lovely. Service was very good, food wonderful. A little pricy for Sunday roast when you have to pay extra £2.50 for 2 tiny stuffing balls as does not come with roast pork. Will definitely return soon.
We sat in the marquee which was well laid out and plenty of room. The food was really good. The steak and burgers were really tasty. The service was also very good. Waiting time for food was only about 20 minutes. All in all we had a very good night. Definitely go again.
Thanks Derek, It really is hard doing everything completely outside at the moment but glad you enjoyed everything we kept as standards as close to being inside as we can. See you soon.
It was great to be back at the Holly Bush again. Lovely warm summer evening, service was excellent we were created and taken to our
table immediately. We sat in the marquee which was very pleasant nice vase of flowers on the table. Happy atmosphere and good was good. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Thanks Yvonne, see you soon
We had a lovely afternoon at The Hollybush.
The only complaint I have is with regards to the food. I ordered nachos with chilli con carni from the starter menu, when the nachos arrived, they had pulled pork on the top. I hate pulled pork and because of this, I was unable to eat any of the nachos. It was a shame as other than this, the day was perfect!
Hi Helen, Thanks for the review. I understand your point of view however I can assure you the chilli was actually beef frisket which we slow roast for over 24 hours. I know its not how everywhere does chilli but you should have tried it! It's amazing! We don't have pulled pork on our menu at all at the moment. Sorry our staff should have noticed and explained, sorry if this didn't make experience with us even better.
Great service really lovely staff, could not do enough for you. Nice location and atmosphere was great would recommend for a great place to eat & drink
Thanks Gail, your review is very important to us, see you soon.
Food as good as ever. Although a reduced menu at the moment still plenty of choice. Tables well spaced so felt safe. Lovely to be back.
Thanks Lesley, We have all loved being back! See you soon.
Smart pub with excellent food. Sheltered and covered bookable tables in the marquee or first come first serve in the outside garden.
Hi Mark, Thanks for the review, See you next time
Would highly recommend the Holly Bush; really lovely pub. We sat outside on comfy rattan sofas. There is a covered outdoor area if the weather isn’t great or if you want some shade. The service was great; staff were really attentive. Dogs are welcome, and the staff make sure that they each have fresh water bowls. Big food portions and a good variety of dishes on offer. We’ll be going back soon!
Thanks Katie, Our staff have worked so hard since we reopened and we are so proud of the credit they are to us! See you soon.
The staff were so nice which is probably why I didn’t make anymore of an issue with what had happened the fact my burger bun came out with mould in it was just something I had never witnessed before, they brought a new one out but honestly by that point I was really over the meal after waiting an hour between our starter and our main we definitely got forgotten about when our food came out everything was cold I looked like I had the leftover chips on the tray which were cold and half full in the pot my parent had one scoop of lukewarm mash with his pie which was the only thing that was piping hot if our food hadn’t of been under a lamp for 30min I really don’t know what the excuse would be for it to be so cold! Just so sad my grandparents used to come to the Holly bush years ago and it was there favourite pub! Just couldn’t be more disappointed I booked it for my boyfriend as a surprises meal/ first date night this year and I honestly I was so embarrassed that I had booked the meal with you thank god the starters were nice just felt like we really just got forgotten about which is so sad .
Hi Sophie, My name is Jon, I am so so sorry you left us feeling like this, we have being so busy these last few weeks I don't know how you how you ended up with this experience! Is there any chance you can email me please on firstname.lastname@example.org so I can explain and offer you a new visit on us to show you how you should feel when you leave. Although it is embarrassing the look of the bun was probably from our faulty new cutlery which has all now being send back.
Lovely garden and Marquee. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was delicious
Thanks Kerry, See you soon!
Thanks Alice, See you soon
We were able to say that we had a great experience and will be back asap
Great service thanks
Food and friendly staff kids loved it too
Thanks Suzi, We can't wait to welcome you back
Booking made via Open table and confirmed via email and text. On arrival at the Holly Bush it was closed!! Very disappointed and will avoid using open table to book here again. Your system does not work
Hi Lee, I am sorry we had a technical issue on our booking system, although all of our staff were off on their days off we did notice and tried to rectify immediately, with leaving messages and sending emails. We are sorry for the trouble but it did even state on opentable that we are closed on Mon/Tues. Hopefully your next experience is a lot better, Ask for one of the managers when you next come, we will compensate you for your trouble. Sorry
Very disappointed I’m afraid. Arrived at 17.15 and didn’t get our food until 18.40. The Gammon came with an egg, 2 pieces of pineapple and some fries. No peas or salad. The Sunday roast was probably the worst my wife had ever had at a restaurant. Our friend had to send hers back. The coffee after the meal was just about warm. However the staff were friendly and helpful. The bill for four of us came to £140 with one starter and four mains. Our first meal out for a long time so expected better food and service. They need to up their game before we return
Hi, Thanks for spending the time leaving us a review. We are are so sorry that you felt disappointed from our teething problems, I will get in touch with you privately to try and get some extra feedback and improve for your next visit. Jon
Great food and service, felt very safe and Covid secure, only complaint £5.40 for a pint of lager is stupidly expensive
Thanks for the great Review, See you Soon.
Attentive lovely staff.
Will definitely be teturning

Staff were friendly and helpful. Very pleasant meal.
