Nice surroundings and well decorated with comfortable seating. The food was standard Gastro pub food which I feel was a bit on the pricey side. Staff were attentive and food came within a reasonable time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals which were beautifully prepared and presented. The poached pear Eton Mess was especially delicious.The staff we met were all cheerful and willing. It was a little noisy as there was a private party in the adjoining marquee, so we couldn't hear each other too well without adding to the noise. Nevertheless, a lovely dining experience .

We love The Holly Bush. Every time we go we have lovely well cooked food either in the bar or restaurant. Their Sunday roasts are exceptional and large! Always two or three well kept ales. Pleasant atmosphere and never too noisy. The staff are efficient and helpful. Overall a very nice experience and also plenty of parking.

The food was very good quality but expensive. The cost of the drinks were too expensive which will not persuade us to return unfortunately. The waiting staff were obviously lacking experience. A service charge was added to the bill for our table of 4 adults and a 5 year old which we felt was a little excessive. The second large glass of wine we had was definitely larger than the first measure, when challenged we were offered the cost of a medium wine instead of the large for the first drink but begrudgingly. Shall we say, they could have handled it better. Really nice atmosphere with a very pleasant decor and spotlessly clean. I just wish I had checked the prices on the website for the food and drink before booking. Having said that, the food was good. My compliments to the chef.

The service was absolutely fabulous, unfortunately, some of the food wasn't quite up to the mark, I chose the Duck Salad and Squid which was disappointing. On previous visits, having enjoyed the Cesare Salad it was disappointing it is no longer on the menu. Appreciate it is difficult to appease all tastes when updating a menu but some of my preferred choices are no longer available ie Monkfish

Service was excellent. Food is standard gastropub fare with prices on the high side. The pub is a little remote and was very very quiet. The lighting inside is way too bright and harsh. It has the potential to be a really nice pub however.

Best meal out in a LONG time

We always came here with friends before lockdown. Since things have got easier standards seemed to have slipped generally, but NOT here. Fabulous food, service and ambience. Can’t recommend this place highly enough . .

Not been here for years but had been recommended by a friend. Decor was great, lots of food and drink choices. Family friendly - my son received a goody bag which was a nice touch. Food took around an hour to arrive from ordering so was getting a bit twitchy, had to ask and no real apologies for the wait. Had to ask for a lot of things rather than being offered. Felt like they had too many bookings for the number of staff as seemed to be a bit stressed. Overall good would come again but maybe not Sunday lunch.
