Great pub food and service

We had our third meal in a little pub in Breedon-on-the-Hill and it was as friendly as ever. "The Holly Bush", on the village green,is a really lovely place to visit. The bangers and mash are second to none with crisp fresh vegetables and an onion gravy and mash. Yum! Jacqui, the Publican, is a... read more

Four of us sat in the bar, which was cosy and warm with an open fire. Portions were generous, price fair and service prompt. The food - the side salad was served in a metal cup (??) and was drenched in dressing, which none of us liked. Lasagne was ok but more pasta than meat. Tortellini was ok but was... More

Great Sunday lunch again, cooked as we wanted and good "home cut" slices of beef rather than the see through offerings at some places!

I took 12 friends for a Champagne Breakfast and the selection for each course was excellent and as usual the food was faultless. Mick, Jackie and Norma who served us made it a memorable occasion which I can thoroughly recommend

A great selection of pies on a Monday night is well worth trying. Mike pastry is to die for - absolutely fabulous. We recently held our Golden wedding celebration meal here for our family and we were very pleased with the service and the meal that was served by the chefs. No complaints here.

Our group of nine ramblers dropped in for lunch on September 10th. The beer was well kept with a good selection of real ales and the food was very good and surprisingly good value. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone

Having recently moved to this village, we've tried many pubs and restaurants in the area. We keep going back to this place though, it's fresh cooked food and great value with frequent changing menu, but Monday's are reserved for their pie night theme. The owners are friendly and they keep good beer. I've heard they are also excellent for outside... More
