This Pub is very much OPEN! A lovely Country Pub

Good beer. Nice food. Warm and cheery landlord. Two nice fires in the winter. Beams everywhere. Dining room gets lots of private bookings - great for a small wedding or special celebration. Recommended.

When we first approached Mick (the owner) about having our reception we were optimistic but a little unsure with it being quite a small restaurant. Mick very quickly made us feel at ease with his accommodating and confident personality we left happy and certain that we would have a low key yet lovely reception. Our budget was very small and...

We visited the Hollybush Inn several times over the New year. Very friendly staff, we were made very welcome, they even opened up just for us when they were hoping for a day off, good selection of ales and lovely food at reasonable prices, would definitely visit again and would highly recommend.

We have recently moved to the area and this was our first (but certainly not last) visit to the Hollybush. Lovely food, friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. Food was freshly cooked, tasty and nicely presented. Will be back!

In the old days, the café, was small, noisy and all the tables were sticky, It's a lot better these days, perfect for toast, sandwiches and snacks.

Called here after another local pub couldn't accommodate what we needed. It was fairly quiet so the guy behind the bar who seemed to be trying to do everything just about managed to be all things to all people!! We had a good, hot tasty lamb shank. Will re visit.

Absolutely superb pub/restaurant which serves quality food @ a quality price and a good pint as well. Started with marinated olives and bread and oil and then had the seafood risotto and both were superb. Great service with the food all served piping hot, and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Thanks for a great meal and we... More
