Once again the team did not disappoint on any level, from the first enquiry to the end product. 8 of us met for dinner last night, pre-ordered from the set menu (which was a great and such good value, 3 courses for £25!!) and left feeling relaxed, full of delicious food (6 of us had steak cooked to perfection) and...

Popped in unplanned to fill an hour whilst waiting for a tour of the WychWood brewery. It was Father's Day and the pub was very busy, but the manager said he could still accommodate us for drinks and snacks. Real ale was very well kept and hot snacks served really quickly (Sweet Potato Fries, Cheesy Chips, and an absolute must... More

Visiting Witney for the first time for a nearby family wedding, the Hollybush was a great venue for a pre-wedding family get together. The venue is in a great location in the pretty town centre. The interior decor/lighting provides a really comfortable environment, a popular place for pre-post dinner drinks too makes for a great atmosphere. We were well looked... More

The HB has TOTALLY lost its edge! Service is now shocking, they really need to get better staff, the waitress that served us was quite frankly useless! We had to ask 3 times for water, requested condiments WHEN the food arrived, this took 2 attempts to get right, the potatoes were overdone, the pudding was cold, another waitress was constantly...
