Great little find. No frills clean accommodation. Didn't eat in the pub so can't comment on food but the welcome was great and accommodating. Friendly staff. Good for a quick overnight business stop. Really good value for money.

Absolutely delicious food, would recommend. It has a lovely outdoor area, with a bouncy castle too! Extensive parking. Good menu & extremely fair prices. But we’ve now been twice in two weeks & the woman who serves at the bar is just so bloody miserable!...More

The Holly Bush Inn is one of the oldest pubs in the country dating back to the 16th Century. The Inn and Barns Accommodation are situated in the Bartington Green Conservation area. The area covers only 2.04 hectares and is the smallest conservation area in the Vale Royal Borough. There is a Grade II listing on the barn and pub, which was previously a working farm. The Holly Bush is a privately owned public house since 1993. The pub has recently been refurbished to restore the traditional thatch roof, provide a larger restaurant area and to convert the barns into 14 luxurious en-suite non-smoking bedrooms, now with FREE unlimited Wi-Fi internet connection.
