Steak was cooked to perfection and the restaurant has a lovely feel to it. Great bar for a few drinks after dinner. Very friendly and attentive staff! 👍🏼

Very tasty meal, found the gravy on sunday lunch was very tasty although just a bit to flavoured. would have liked to have a bit more on the plate , meat was beautifully cooked and tender, would have prefered a bit more variety in the veg. Not all deserts were avaliable as sold out, so didn't have much of a choice. but a nice meal. would go again, even if it was rather expensive for Sunday Lunch.

Had a really good hot filling Sunday lunch with good service the week before even though it was really busy so took friends on a midweek evening. Staff friendly, and efficient bar staff with a good range of beers and lager. Draft Gem was excellent as was the Estella.
The menu wasn’t very exciting or much choice. We were really stuck and ended up with fish and chips and a roast chicken meal that was supposed to have “crispy potatoes” but they were in a tomatoe bean sauce. Very nice but not what the description suggested. It was 8pm and fairly quiet but the food took ages to arrive. I eventually asked where it was as I could not see anyone else eating.
When it arrived the food was good and tasty. The restaurant and bar area are relaxing and smart. The menu just needs a revamp and updating on the website as sadly there was no pork belly listed that 2 of us had gone for.

We have lunch at the holly Bush regularly.
But the last few times we have gone .
They ran out of lamb ran out of cauliflower cheese.
I could understand if we hadn't booked and gone late but both times our booking was at 3 . So not sure why they have ran out so quick and as it happened a couple of times to cook more.

Slow service, waitresses were taking drinks order but not bringing them very quick, food almost eaten before they arrived. Perhaps need more staff

Our visit was very disappointing - we booked in for lunch only to be told there was no food available
Rude Barman did not help either
