We go to the Holly bush quite often. Been there mostly for breakfast. Service is really slow and there isn't a friendly face of staff in sight. Last we went as a family for lunch with my mother in law who is 88 from London....More

A well kept pub with a generous beer garden, and a veranda out front. The decor is fairly generic but nicely done. The menu is pretty standard and not all that adventurous, but it is well priced and plentiful. The food was good and came...More

We visit this pub quite often and have always really liked it. However, yesterday we experienced an unacceptable scenario. Having had two pints that were served well under the top of the glass I asked for the third to be 'topped up' only to be...More

I love this place. Perfect for a long lazy Saturday in the pub reading the papers. Brunch, bloody Marys, good nosh, friendly staff. Decor is spot on - if this was London, you'd never get a table. And they have straw bales and blankets. Really...More

Arrived and loved the decor. Almost an old school hall and now shabby chic. Headed for the veranda and although very cute there were a number of tables not cleared. A great menu, food fresh and different, tuna steak, herb couscous and tzatziki. Was lovely....More
