Haven't been to the Hollybush for a while, it now has a minimalist decor, and the blackboard,full of daily specials, has been replaced by a conventional menu.... the food, and the service however has continued to be good. Ravioli with samphire was tasty but only 5 pieces (£9), the steak onglet was perfectly cooked, medium rare, tasty, with truffle butter,... More

We had a beautiful meal at The Holly Bush, so light but filling. Pudding was amazing cake and poached pear, yummy. Can't fault the place at all, great food and hard working staff.

I had nice food and the waiting staff were very helpful and friendly. Also I was in gym clothes and they didn't make it a thing which I appreciated.

On entry was disappointed that we could not get any food until 1800 due to slow January. We had a drink and waited and are so pleased we did.The food was exceptional and the service first class. Despite slow January the restaurant became quite busy without any drop in service.

The staff could not have been more hardworking, friendly and helpful. The pub was heaving with lots of Christmas diners and other revellers. The food was so disappointing. There was plenty of turkey on everyone's plates but the thinnest, most meagre roundel of stuffing I've ever come across. We each had 3 huge, soggy "roast" potatoes, 2 minute, thin little... More

This ranges from high end to low end so you can eat as per your salary allows. Attentive staff, nice food.

Came here for lunch with friends and really enjoyed it. I had roast lamb (everyone else had beef), but we all really enjoyed it. I was pleased to get a huge Yorkshire pudding, even with the lamb. A nice selection of veg and really good gravy. The desserts were delicious too, although I think £7 is a little steep for... More
