Paid £14 for a 'gormet' burger. Received what could have been an overcooked Iceland freezer burger, and unconvincing chips, with a sad salad.

Came here for an impromptu lunch and VERY glad we did. Amazing selection of tasty dishes in a tapas style. We had buttermilk chicken (fabulous!), Rioja, chorizo croquettes, more Rioja, amazing Hummus, and more Rioja. Outstanding service from lovely people. Back soon!

Fantastic Sunday lunch. Didn't eat till 5pm and the beef was lovely and rare still and was so tender it melted in your mouth. Lovely fresh vegetables and a jug of gravy. Perfect

The staff were great and made us very welcome and were very attentive. The food was excellent and obviously only the highest quality ingredients were used. The overall atmosphere of the pub was very good.

Popped into the Hollybush for coffee Friday afternoon, gorgeous pub, loved the decor, and twinkle lights everywhere. The coffees were delicious and the waitress was friendly and efficient. We will definitely be back to try the food.
