We read about this Pub/Restaurant in The Good Beer guide..as my Husband is a keen real ale drinker and it was advertised as serving food. .we decided to travel 25 miles to try it out...Blackboard outside stated food served all day..but when we asked to see food menu, we were told sorry we don't do food..so a wasted journey...very disappointed...

Passed by whilst visiting Alcester to find the pub is open after a recent refurb. Went in for a swift half and a banter with the staff. Good choice of ales available. Pub is set in the residential area away from the centre of town.

Bad news, the Holly Bush has closed its doors after all these years and all the CAMRA awards that it has received. Watch this space - lets hope it will to stay closed for very long.

I love this pub, it's so cosy and atmospheric. We had a lovely Sunday lunch here today. It was our second visit for food - and it was just as good as the first. We sat outside in the lovely garden and really enjoyed our soup, sandwiches and chips. Beautifully presented, great tasting, good portion sizes - and the prices... More

We turned up on Sunday evening after reading the recommendations on trip advisor to find that they didn't serve food on a Sunday evening. The barmaid was very helpful with regards to other pubs in the area serving food. We tried again on Monday evening only to be told that they were not serving food. We did have a look... More

Three family members plus a very young baby enjoyed a delightful sandwich lunch at the Holly Bush. 'Sandwich' probably doesn't adequately describe the offering at the Holly Bush and so, if you are thinking small & dainty with a few whisps of cress, this is probably not for you. But we were hungry and so we were more than happy.... More

A very traditional, privately owned, pub and restaurant. We used the restaurant but there is also bar food available. One of the big attractions is the range of cask ales available, which will suit all tastes.

It's a real shame that none of my friends or I will be going back to the Holly Bush for a meal. The food was really good and was decent value. How unfair on the chef's, and most of the friendly and helpful staff, that two of the waitresses were rude and unhelpful. One told us she was going to... More

I have had a couple of meals here recently. One time I seemed to be forgotten by the bar staff that I wanted a table but once the error and lack of communication between Bar and Restaurant was resolved it was fine. Service etc the other time was fine. The food is fresh, well presented and tasty. I would definitely... More
