The Holly Bush, Alcester opened under new management on 2nd March 2015. A sister pub of local gems the Fleece Inn, Bretforton and The Cardinals Hat, Worcester the Holly Bush hopes to resume as the community's favourite watering hole. We offer quality real ales from local breweries, premium lagers and a fantastic range of locally sourced English Tapas. During the colder months the log burners and open fires offer welcome respite from the chill and in the summer the garden and terrace provide the perfect sun trap.

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.
