we booked a family gathering for relatives from America, we needed somewhere quite close to the M6 for family travelling from different parts of the UK with nearby hotels and liked the look of the Holly Bush. We made the right decision; despite our numbers for the booking being less than expected, Sophie and team at the Holly Bush ensured... More

I had lunch last week with several work colleagues here and have to say all our meals were delicious. The next evening I went for the early saver meal with a friend and I found this to be very good value for money, nice staff and did not have to wait long for the meals, surprising as these were cooked...

A group of us went here yesterday for a get together. We had 8 different meals, a few starters and a few desserts. All were delicious apart from the olives as a starter! We have never tasted anything so digusting for a long time, these were just ordinary pitted olives in brine from a jar, there was no taste to... More

Very processed cafe style food and over priced. The place appears to still have regulars who hog the bar so the atmosphere appears clicky. Really not worth the price for warmed up chips.

The owner is clearly in the wrong game!! Miserable doesn't come close!!! Service slow, food average and cold. It was poor 2 years ago and nothing's changed!!

I visited the Holly Bush earlier this year (Jan time) and I have to say, I felt let down by the food. It wasn't horrific, but was a little dry and tasteless. We heard a new chef had started recently and so decided to give it another chance. I have literally just returned from having lunch there an hour ago... More

My husband and I visited with our son after school on Friday for an early dinner. The menu had plenty of choice and the prices were good - special pricing before 6pm. The quality of food was great, portion sizes very good and the staff were attentive. The range of real ales went down well with hubby and son. Will... More
