Although the Holly Bush didn't seem very inviting from the outside, we had a really lovely meal. The food and service were excellent and the chef was very accommodating to our unusual dietary requests. We definitely recommend this place!

This pub/restaurant has been recently taken over by an extremely pleasant couple, who have made it a comfortable and welcoming place to visit, with good food and service and a friendly atmosphere. A most enjoyable evening.

The Holly Bush, Alcester opened under new management on 2nd March 2015. A sister pub of local gems the Fleece Inn, Bretforton and The Cardinals Hat, Worcester the Holly Bush hopes to resume as the community's favourite watering hole. We offer quality real ales from local breweries, premium lagers and a fantastic range of locally sourced English Cuisine. During the colder months the log burners and open fires offer welcome respite from the chill and in the summer the garden and terrace provide the perfect sun trap.
