This is a buzzing trendy town pub with relaxed vibe and well worth a visit. The long solid oak-topped bar adds a contemporary feel and in much evidence are wooden settles, leaded windows, window seats and a large fireplace with log burner. There are several dining areas off the front bar offering... read more

As always a great service and exceptional food! Lovely atmosphere with low lighting and candles. Modern take on a traditional pub that's been here for years. Well worth a visit. Recommend the cocktails ;)

Have been using the Hollybush for many years and have always found it to be well run with good staff and good food.It has been improved gradually and for the better over the years eg new kitchen and decor. Good atmosphere and caters for all ages. Good menu and selection of drinks on offer.

This was my second visit to the Hollybush and I came away on this occasion with a slighly mixed view of the experience overall. The ambience was great, the decor lovely, the atmosphere warm and friendly and the service first class On the debit side, though, I thought the menu was a bit limited and the cost disproportionally high.

The food was excellent last night - the menu has changed considerably and the choice was lovely. I Loved that you could see where all the ingredients had been sourced from and the team were very knowledgable answering any questions we had (loved the small selection of specials). The service was fantastic and they seemed to be working as a... More

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.

I have eaten here a few times but failed so far to leave any reviews. The food is great quality and all tastes fresh like it should. The pub Itself is usually quite busy but I've not struggled to get a table. The staff are friendly and make visiting a nice experience. The prices are higher than other places but... More
