We dropped in for lunch while shopping in Witney before Christmas & had an excellent meal. The Hollybush is warm & cosy & we had no trouble finding a table despite not booking in advance. Staff were really friendly and attentive without being over-bearing, plus the little jars by the pumps, containing samples of their beers gave a good idea... More

The food is excellent and the service friendly, but they hadn't got our booking on their list, we were then put on a table next to the toilets in high bar chairs before we asked to be moved. We were moved to a table in a corner which was much better until the table next to us had more guests... More

Had a roast lunch here with friends on a recent visit to Witney. Excellent friendly service and the scallops were beautiful as was the turkey with apricot stuffing. Lovely warm atmosphere and reasonable prices too. Recommended for roast lovers.

Went out for a meal with friends. Two of the diners made a request that they didnt want any salad placed into the burger. When the meals were brought out, the waiter placed the burgers down and then asked "I suppose you will want a plate to take off the salad" Why would you bring it out if you knew... More

Always a good choice at lunchtimes, evenings, and especially on their half price wine evening on Wednesday. Staff welcoming and efficient. Great on summer days when the outside patio area is lovely, so long as you are not affected by cigarette smokers! Interesting menus which are frequently changed. Good 2/3 course lunchtime choices too. Always a good place to visit.

Food very good and service good but as we had two children with us (10 and 7) we were in the barn at the back on our own. As our grandchildren are well behaved didn't think this was necessary.
