Reliable value at the Holmbush Inn

A comprehensive menu suiting most price ranges and tastes, all in a pleasant well-established pub and easy to find. Can be relied on for a good bite to eat, without having to wait too long,

Sadly three veggie options I asked for (first med veg lasagne, second veg chilli, third mushroom and spinach something or other)... had run out thought I'd go for salmon... Guess what, non of that either. Was left with no other choice than the bean burger or a glorified potato and cheese pie. Decided on the burger... Came out so quickly... More

One of the best local pubs around. Food portions are extremely generous which you cannot complain about. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and service is never too slow nor too quick. Would recommend to anyone.

We couldn't be bothered to cook and decided to try here after hearing good things from a friend. Well, I was impressed. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was served in good time and the steaks we had were really good. The price came as a nice surprise as well. We will be going back.

We last visited the Holmbush some years ago and resolved not to return. This year, for the want of a quick meal, we relented and regretted. The food was OK and the service was good but the general air was a crowded noisy eatery.

I am local and go to holmbush on a regular basis. Food and service is always very good. I am however a little disappointed that they have taken the spicy chicken burger off the menu and not using their seed buns, because they were lush.
