Went for a meal at the new Cebo italian restaurant, formerly the Hollybush at Stockton Brook, it was excellent, one of the best meals we've had in a long time and we eat out often! The service was excellent too! Drinks with shared starter, 2 medium sized meals and third person had pizza (you can choose large or medium portions)... More

Ok food but expensive for what it is, service is good but there was only 1 other table in when we visited - so quiet atmosphere too - such a shame to see another establishment overlooked and changed into something worse than it was before

My wife and I called in one lunch time for a quick bite We both had a hot meat baguette it was very nice & well presented our order was processed quickly, but the place was not busy. It was on the little expensive side, but not excessively so. The Hollybush is a lovely pub with lots of exposed wood... More

Had an enjoyable evening last saturday for a table of ten including numerous young children. I thought the booking was handled well in general and the food was good quality at a decent price. Sharing starters were excellent although not to sure battered black pudding will have helped the old heart! Main course from the specials menu of open beef... More

We had eaten in the hollybush some time ago and the quality had gone downhill based on a few years previous, however, we decided to give it another shot given that the management had changed hands. I honestly wish we had saved our money... My husband and I both ordered ribeye steak which cost £18.50 each, we didn't think that... More

On Friday August 17th 2012 seven of us went for lunch. It was our first visit under the present management. The food was excellent with efficient service, where nothing was too much trouble. We were not rushed and it was a pleasure to relax in the very pleasant surroundings. The two real beers were in very good condition- very important... More
