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.

Beautiful venue. But felt it was overpriced.
Had a Sunday roast. A chicken breast that was over cooked. Two roast potatoes, one parsnip and carrot purée, a side of chopped leaks and peas. £16.50
Not a huge selection for vegetarians

Very friendly service. Food excellent but maybe a touch overpriced for a pub even one as well decorated as this. Nice pint of Proper Job.
A lovely evening all round enhanced by being able to drink in the garden in the September heat.

Very nice pub, just been refurbished by the looks of it. Friendly staff and nice quality food and drink. Portions a bit small, but high quality and well presented. I had the steak and ale pie, very nice, and my wife had the veggie cottage pie and also enjoyed it. We would definitely go back.

Without a doubt the burger was the softest, juiciest melt in the mouth burger I’ve ever had the pleasure to eat! My partner had Gammon and said it was lovely. Lovely place to have a meal

Staff were friendly and welcoming but got rather stressed as maybe needed more workers. Food was ok especially the crispy duck salad starter. I’d have that as a main course. Didn’t expect live music which was good but very loud. If you’re there to eat and talk as we were the music was too loud. If we’d been there to dance it would’ve been great.

We had a family lunch yesterday Gluten Free & Veggie menu s we're available. The waiter was very helpful too & ready to help with our choices. Our lunch was delicious. This is the second time that we had booked. We will definitely be booking again.

We brought 2 neighbours who hadn’t been to the Holly Bush before - one was celiac which we hadn’t advised in advance (sorry!) BUT the staff were brilliant, even arranging a cauliflower cheese to be prepared gluten free. The food was brilliant, hot and generous portions. I was particularly pleased to to that the extra gravy order was now a decent serving after my previous feedback - All in all a lovely Sunday lunch for two “regulars” and two “converts” all of whom are bound to return
