Good food, pricey though

5 really good meals but avoid the veg hotpot - very small portion. Best belly pork I have ever had. Staff very very attentive - a little too frantic at times. Member of bar staff was a bit sarcastic but quickly apologized.

We ate here a couple of years ago and had quite a good pub lunch, but were less impressed on this visit. Staff are still friendly and efficient, and the beer's still well kept, but the food was average at best. A sirloin steak may have been aged for 28 days, as advertised, but it tasted as though it had... More

I have been going to the Hollybush now for over 15 years and I have had some incredible times there with good friends. I remember it as a biker pub with 'the pit' out back, turning into arguably Witney's most successful Gastro-Pub! The Hollybush has been amazing with John & Pinky especially creating something really special in Witney. I was... More

We had a lovely Sunday lunch at the Hollybush. The atmosphere, the staff and the food were all just perfect. We will be back!

My perennial complaint about Witney was that if you wanted British food there was no decent restaurant in Witney. By this I meant somewhere where they took the order at your table and you had a decent cloth napkin, not a cheap two-ply bit of paper wrapped around a knife and fork and you were not expected to order at...

Went for a family Sunday lunch - highly recommend it. Food was top rate - prices are a little higher than standard pub grub, but you get what you pay for - top quality. Atmosphere was happy and relaxed, service was fantastic. The new owners have created the perfect combinations for a nice meal out.

it is a nice place, friendly staff( so they should ), however the main important thing is missing, food so expensive for so little, very unhappy about it, not much choice in the menu either....

I do not usually write reviews however in this case i am making an exception. For our wedding reception we decided to book the barn which is a beautiful little room attached to the back of the main restaurant. From the outset the two managers Alex and Luke were very helpful and attentive, going out of their way to help... More

Without doubt the food and service were excellent but I thought the menu was rather limited( no salads, pasta or main fish dishes)

Stopped in for lunch again & we were impressed by the new decor but more impressed by the updated menu. The fries are still perfect. Crisp, tasty and perfectly seasoned. My Brisket & rocket sandwich was one of the most flavourful sandwiches I've eaten. A rich sauce & brisket that's just falling apart served on great quality bread. The spicy... More
