Visited for a friends 40th. Food and service were superb, I was really impressed. Scallops were beautiful to start, then chicken skewers for main. I had special dietary needs and was very well accommodated throughout. Our waiter was incredibly friendly and really couldn't have done a better job. I'm local and amazingly have never eaten here before. I'll certainly be... More

Met friends for a girly lunch on Sat. Everything was very good, service & food. Very quiet lunchtime lovely for us. Only disappointment was the choc sundae dessert for 7.50! Other than that we had a very nice time. Not a dog in a handbag in sight, yeh! Lols

Following a group planned booking for a BBQ, vegetarians were treated as an after thought.....if you are a meat eater you get a burger and sausage if you are a veggie you get a veggie burger....served after the meat eaters have theirs! All at the same price, so poor value for money. Poor customer service when you complain, I was... More

We ate here under the pergola and awnings on one of the hottest days of the year and we had a lovely experience. They catered for our needs (my wife is a strict vegetarian) and were only to keen to oblige. I had the fish deli board with everything on it, but the prawn. It was tasty, but I thought... More

Although this was recommended to us, we were a little hesitant as it looked little more than average. The choices on the menu did not immediately grab us either; however, we were so surprised by our food. It was fabulous and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Would not hesitate to recommend and will be going back.

I live local to the area and is a great place to go for a light dinner or the full works ! I would advise the deli boards there brilliant and on Mondays you can get burger buddies which is a 2 for 1 offer on burgers there also lovely !

On a busy Wednesday night, the Hollybush staff coped well with out large party of 11, putting us in the barn. We had pre-ordered from the menu, and the waitress was efficient in checking our orders and ordering drinks, although we had to go in to the bar for subsequent drink orders. The food menu is excellent, although I found... More

Always hear great things about the Hollybush food and drinks and atmosphere. Yes it is expensive but great for a treat. Had my first deli-board today and it did not disappoint. I was nicely filled up for £9.50 with excellent food and fast service!

Ate there last night. Great food I had the pie of the day my wife had the steamed cod. Food and service was great. We had a dessert, to be honest cannot quite remember what it was, nice but bit shy on portion, but we did share it. We had two main courses, one dessert drinks, ( 2 pints and... More

Lovely food as usual. Service great. Staff very happy to explain what things on the menu mean-fish cooked in paper! Hubby loved it. I had the steak-tasty and cooked just how I'd asked. But oh dear I do wish they'd do something about the loos. One ladies loo for a big pub is not enough and although clean it could... More
