We sat in the function room at the back which gave us more privacy and space than when we'd previously ate here. The food is always tasty but the deli board platters are not good value for money.

We have visited over the years and take friends and not disappointed. This is a place that by 7pm on a Friday is full! Good menu, varied and nice wine selection. There is a pub garden, hard standing at the back with a great covered decking area, which is used for private functions, but we benefited from hearing a great... More

The tapa menu is wonderful, special mention to the chilli and garlic prawns, honey mustard sausages and sweet potato wedges. The protein sizes are generous and if you’re a fan of family style eating (lots of plates to share), the tapas are a great choice. The atmosphere of the pub is warm and welcoming and definitely has that cosy feel... More

recommended to eat in this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Food and staff were excellent. There is a garden that you can eat in or inside, locals beers and cider and very central to Witney itself.

Went to the Hollybush with my work colleagues for a afternoon BBQ. All very civilised. Anyway, the chef cooked the food to perfection. Although there could really have been more and more choice like chicken and kebabs etc. But it was nice. The bar staff were knowledgeable and attentive. I also had a coffee because I was driving and one... More

we had a great lunch here with the lunch time 2 course menu but it just takes too long to come ... the food was great but nearly 2 hours for lunch is too long waiting - we waited 40 mins for lunchtime starters

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
