    The menu wasn't good for me as I have recently had to go on an alkaline diet. However, the chicken was good and I felt that, if I asked for something slightly different, they would happily do their best. I will definitely return.

    Very good food. It seems they have changed the menu and improved it.... Staff as usual were very attentive but not obtrusive. One down side was the price of the alcohol free beer as this, in my view, very expensive. Next visit l will be on tap water.

    The Holly BushResponded on 3 June 2022

    Hi AnnG, Sorry to read your review. Do you mind expanding on your thoughts of our food as you never addressed anything, nor the music in fact, when you was here? Seems a little nasty, to leave saying everything was good and then putting this review up when our staff work so hard everyday to ensure our food and service is on point.

    We both enjoyed our two course meal. As quite frequent customers we did notice that both the menu and portion sizes were a little smaller this time, but the "special touches" to classic dishes were still there. ....and long may they continue!

    Lovely evening at the Hollybush last night. The pub has certainly been upgraded since we last visited and had a lovely ambiance we received fabulous service from a lovely girl who was so friendly snd nothing was too much trouble. Food was good although a little disappointed in the chicken Caesar salad it was was more lettuce and far too much Caesar sauce. Friends had the Fish and Chips which was amazing. Will definitely return but will order something different!

    Family sharing style for a Sunday is the way forward, it was all so nicely presented. Definitely worth the money, couldnt even finish it and we didn't even have a starter or main. Only slight niggle is the plates where quite as hot as they could have been, all round though, a really nice meal and will go back in a few weeks when back in the area.

    Popped in for a quick lunch on Monday, was a little quiet but expected for it really. Had the hot smoked salmon, which had loads of flavour, followed by the pie which was lovely. Service was quick and attentive without in your face. Just what you want for a quick working lunch, definitely be back soon.

    Went for Sunday Lunch, god it was amazing! I had the roast beef and my boyfriend had the beef wellington. We did have to wait about 30 minutes for our food but it was so worth it!! Everything was amazing, from the service, even down to the seasonal vegetables with it!! Can't wait to go back again, it was our first time but certainly won't be our last.

    Lovely Sunday Lunch. Went in, was quite busy upon arrival but was still sat down quickly and drinks brought over. Young Lad recommended we had the Lamb which I did, it was lovely. My Partner had beef which was beautiful and pink. All other items were nice and hot and cooked perfectly, loved all the flavour in the vegetables, definitely found our new place to eat on a Sunday. See you soon Holly Bush.

    Went on what I thought would be a quiet night, turns out there was a large function going on in the restaurant so we ended up eating in the bar. Service was friendly and quick. Food all came out within a reasonable time, especially considering they was feeding the function at the same time as us which was good. If the place is busy on a week night, think I will definitely book further ahead on a weekend. Can't wait to go back. Wish I tried the smoked ribs on the specials as they looked really good but had the Seabass curry instead, it did not disappoint!

    Sunday lunch . Beef was very good.roast parsnip undercooked.cauliflower cheese not very tasty. Far too many vegetables. Smaller portions and more attention to details would be advisable. Staff were attentive and very friendly.

    We have been here many times and had a lovely meal but yesterday was not good. I am prepared to wait for my order but my Sunday dinner was plonked in front of me within about 7 minutes of me ordering it. My roast potatoes were hard, as if they had been cooked hours earlier and sat on a hot plate, I couldn’t get my knife into the parsnips, the gravy was watery and minimal, and the vegetables smelt so much of garlic, it was like they had been drowned in it. The meat needed a chainsaw to cut through and it was thoroughly unappetising. We aren’t ones to make a fuss so we paid and left quickly - I am only leaving this review now as we both spent most of last night with stomach cramps. Never again, sorry.

    The Holly BushResponded on 25 April 2022

    Hi Slinky, Sorry you felt like this, I always find it very hard to take feedback on board when you have not a-raised the issue with our staff instead just slatting us online, I personally find it very unfair. If you had a problem, you could have given us a chance to rectify our mistake, this could be a completely different now. Whereas as you said at the start, you always have lovely meals so I am sorry. Are you sure there is no way we can get you back to show you that this is not us? Thanks

    A bit disappointing. We’ve been lots of times before but this was the worst. Menu really reduced. Steak burnt. Food rushed through so we had main straight after starter. Service was ok for us, though felt a bit sorry for woman at next table who complained about her drink being wrong and waitress wouldn’t change it for her. Hopefully goes back to how it used to be as we usually love it there.

    The Holly BushResponded on 25 April 2022

    Hi Suze, I don't know how the choice of 14 different starters and 19 different mains is reduced but ok, we will be sure to take your comments on board. As for the drink, none of the waitresses can tell us anything? Could you possibly email us so we can look into this please. Sorry you felt you was rushed, we will be sure to let the kitchen know so they allow breaks properly between courses like what we normally try to achieve. Hopefully we can be back up to a 5 star next time!

    We returned to the Holly Bush to give them another chance after a very poor experience during 2021 when the service was unbelievably bad - this time was much better and, although it still took a long time for staff to take our order, they were polite and chatty and the food was very good.
