We visited recently for a family pre wedding get together. Staff were welcoming and friendly. We just ordered sandwiches and they were hearty and tasty. Mine had a very large portion of roast beef and other sandwiches ordered by family were really good.

Just found it while sightseeing, near to closing time for lunch. Very kind welcoming hosts, great meal, beer atmosphere. Were told that some years ago it wasn't much good but it is excellent now. Must try the Royal Horseshoes too now that is run by the same people.

I'm biased, but this is a fantastic pub that never disappoints with the quality of its food. Freshly cooked and using locally sourced produce, each meal is a culinary delight. It might have been bitterly cold outside, but inside, by a roaring fire with a drink, the cajun chicken and gammon with egg main courses never stood a chance. I... More

We took a couple of our friends down to Holly Bush last Sunday and were not disappointed. My wife and I had the roast beef whilst our friends went for Lamb and beef - good sized portions and Yorkies to die for.

Lovely atmosphere, good food - home made -, friendly service. We usually sit by the open fire and relax with one of the beers. Monday night, pie night is fab.

Description
Located close to the village green in the historic conservation village of Breedon-on-the-Hill, the Hollybush Inn traces its origins back to the 17th Century. In the heart of the village, the pub is a protected Grade ll listed timber framed building which still holds its original charm. For anyone that hasn't been, the village is dominated by Breedon Hill, the site of an Iron Age period hill fort which is now home to the distinctive local landmark church of St. Mary and St. Hardulph. There are lots of lovely walks around this area including a circular walk up to the church from the pub where you will be treated to an amazing view of the surrounding countryside. We offer a friendly relaxed atmosphere and children are welcome. Dogs are welcome in the bar and we have free WIFI . . just ask for the password.
