Description: The Holly Bush, Alcester opened under new management on 2nd March 2015. A sister pub of local gems the Fleece Inn, Bretforton and The Cardinals Hat, Worcester the Holly Bush hopes to resume as the community's favourite watering hole. We offer quality real ales from local breweries, premium lagers and a fantastic range of locally sourced English Cuisine. During the colder months the log burners and open fires offer welcome respite from the chill and in the summer the garden and terrace provide the perfect sun trap.

A very nice pub indeed. Excellent beers, food & staff. Atmosphere great, very busy so get there early. Just wish the locals wouldn't stand in doorways to obstruct your access - a minor problem.

Party of nine for dinner. They had run out of haddock for the fish and chips, but did find some cod for the lady from Canada. Everyone was very happy with their food; I can recommend the confit duck with barley risotto.

brilliant ! owned and ran by a 'woman' so of course it would be great ... Teij the owner is always friendly and welcoming and it follows through to her staff

really is a 'one off' pub as its suitable for any group of people :)

Arriving late and hungry in Alcester we dived into this pub and found that they were still serving food.
The bar food was very good value. Even though there was confusion over what my wife ordered a replacement meal was provided without any question and any suggestion that we were to blame.
Good sized portions, well presented and as said before very good value.
Great selection of Real Ales.
Pub started to get busy after 10 pm as more locals arrived which is always a good sign.
Nice friendly atmosphere.

Good food well presented reasonably priced, locally sourced beers well kept. There is also a very pleasant garden We think it is the best food for miles around Alcester. Well worth travelling to from Stratford.
