The food was delicious and staff were very pleasant. The only problem I would have to comment on is the wait time, we were seated and noone asked our drink order until they were asking if we knew what we wanted to eat too. It took a while for food to arrive for both the main and desserts. It wouldn't put me off coming back however and was a delicious meal for a special night.

The food, as usual, is excellent, well presented and served with good grace. An all round very satisfactory dining experience. Two of the guests were on crutches and the staff were very helpful.

Good food in a pleasant environment, although the noise level did pick up as the evening progressed, but wasn't too obtrusive.

Food was nice, but I have had better there previously, lamb was ok, but like I said, was nicer on the previous occasion.

Staff were very pleasant and attentive and service was prompt without being rushed.

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint us. A seat at the window, overlooking the farmland and hills, is fabulous.

The steak and ale pies were delicious - full of tender beef, with a large fuffy pastry on top, served with creamy mash and a good selection of crisp, fresh vegetables.

The service was very friendly and cannot be faulted.

We were made very welcome. The restaurant took the trouble to contact us on the morning of the day we'd booked evening dinner, to make sure we arrived with plenty of time to eat before the kitchen stopped serving. (The Open Table website had allowed us to book a later time, even though the restaurant themselves had already asked Open Table to amend the booking times shown online.)
The menu had plenty of choice and the food was delicious. Service was excellent.

It’s the first we have been in a long time and enjoyed our experience. We enjoyed the fact that there was no blaring music which is often in such places and not everyone appreciates.

We had a great meal- 2 steaks for £20! The standard of the food was excellent and the staff were really friendly and attentive without being intrusive. It was a really hot evening but the staff took care to seat people at cooler tables and had windows and doors open to cool the place as much as possible. A great meal- would definitely recommend The Hollybush 😃

I booked the table online after looking at the menu. I was shown to a little table with a great view over the hills and sheep. It was a Saturday night &very busy, but service was good. I asked several questions about items on the menu as I needed to order something gluten, wheat & dairy free. After deliberating, I chose the sea bass fillet with mushroom risotto which was delicious!

I was disappointed to find the steak meal I was going to order was twenty odd pounds. But on the same menu was two for one after 5 pm. That was the only disappointment. The staff were excellent as usual.
