We've just had a really tasty Valentine's dinner here. Despite not being that big on celebrating Valentine's (but our lovely neighbour offered to babysit so we thought why not). The added Valentine's touches to each table told us that the owners are really passionate about the service they deliver and this was reflected in the staff too. We had a... More

The food we had was good. Quite a bit of choice for gluten free. It was all tasty, well cooked and beautifully presented. If you like vegetables you would want to order a side as although there were accompaniments there was not enough vegetables for us. Rabbit with chorizo wrapped in crispy pancetta and the chicken and pork and sage... More

It was a lazy Saturday. Went for a lunch with my man. We chose The Hollybush. It was delicious. I chose from the 'sharing/small bites' menu. Scotch Egg - amazing! Soft in the middle and all crunchy and meaty and Glorious... Chorizo - proper fabulous! Soft in the middle with a gorgeous crispy edge. You could feed me it all... More

Went for Sunday roast my wife and 2 boys (11 & 8 years). Food was amazing, even better than we have had before, (and its always very good). The roast beef was delicious and the puddings were gorgeous, biggest issue was choosing which one. Keep up the good work!!

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been to the Hollybush for a while, it now has a minimalist decor, and the blackboard,full of daily specials, has been replaced by a conventional menu....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

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.

Popped in for lunch with a friend & firstly chatted with the bar staff had good knowledge of the products and drinks were made swiftly. Ordered pretty swiftly taking advantage of the lunch set menu. Starter came on good time, Though after it was cleared we did wait 40 mins for 2 burgers this just wasn't acceptable for how busy... More
