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

12 of us dropped in on spec today on the way back from York. Fitted us in without a question. The food was excellent, from the sandwiches for a fiver, ( fantastic sandwiches with accompanying salad, etc ) to Sunday roast for £9. All home cooked, top quality. 6 real ales were all kept to perfection, all this in a... More

I recently lead a walking party and gave the Holly Bush only a few hours notice of lunch for 16. It appeared there was only one lady in the kitchen and she warned us that there would be a delay. Well, there was not really a long wait and the food was splendid. So fresh, tasty, beautifully presented and very... More

We asked for a quiet table and it was! Both the menu and specials board had a good selection. We were all very happy with our meals, which were nicely presented. The waitress (could have been the landlady) was very attentive and friendly. Service was a tad slow but they were extremely busy. The bill was very reasonable, will definitely... More

We popped into the Holly Bush early Sunday afternoon and had a lovely pub lunch, my partner had cod and chips and I had the steak pudding. Was just the ticket on a cold, grey and wet afternoon. Pub was old with lit fires and a lovely dining area if needed. Deffo go again as just moving into the area!... More

This pub never fails, a good range of real ales, attractive rear garden for fine weather, a choice of several drinking/ dining areas, and the food is always good. Today we had the 'Diamond' menu (available only to over 60s, lucky us!) - 1 course for £5, 2 courses for £7.50, or 3 courses for £10. We chose the 3... More

Visited with friends recently for Sunday lunch. We all opted for traditional Sunday lunch fare and were not disappointed. The meal consisted of beautifully cooked beef, fabulous Yorkshire puddings, crisp and fluffy roasties plus a delicious array of vegetables including a separate dish of cauliflower cheese. The gravy tasted fantastic and was something for home gravy makers to aspire to!... More

A very nice pub indeed. Excellent beers, food & staff. Atmosphere great, very busy so get there early. Just wish the locals wouldn't stand in doorways to obstruct your access - a minor problem.
