The Hollybush Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
This wonderful pub does nothing by halves. The friendly staff, brilliant customer service and wide selection of delicious food and drink are enough to dazzle even those who are most difficult to impress. The bar features a wide range of real ales, while the food menu is equally impressive, boasting fresh, locally sourced produce. Starters include delights such as baked dolcelatte-stuffed figs with Parma ham, balsamic syrup and honey, as well as the more traditional homemade soup of the day served with a wedge of rustic bread. For your main course choose from either the country pub classics menu or the main-course menu, which features slightly more exotic dishes for the adventurous at heart. Deciding between the two can be a challenge in itself, with the pub classics menu featuring dishes such as beer-battered haddock, chips and mushy peas with tartare sauce, plus award-winning Cotswold sausages with creamy mash and rich beef stock gravy. On the main-course menu you will find seasonal indulgence in the form of herb-crusted rack of lamb with Dauphinois potatoes and autumn broth, as well as mouth-watering slow-cooked pork belly with sage and apricot stuffing, creamy mash and thyme jus. The dessert menu is hard to ignore - even if you are full - with classics including banoffee pie and Italian tiramisu on offer.
With the menu offering so much, it's easy to forget that The Hollybush is not all about the food. They host an impressive calendar of events with activities - including entertainment and competitions - varying from month to month. Be sure not to miss the live band that ends each month with a good old knees-up.
