‘Please don’t attempt to drive to The Holly Bush: you’ll spend hours trying to find it’ warns one regular, & it’s true. Set in a pretty residential nook at the top of Hampstead, this is a quintessentially English pub. The building looks peachy from the outside; inside it’s snug & toasty, a warren of softly lit wood-clad rooms with pictures cluttering the walls. Fuller’s took over the place in 2010, so regular pints include London Pride, but there are also guest ales such as Butcombe Bitter. The culinary offering is just as tempting, starting with bar snacks like Scotch eggs with onion jam & leading on to fishy platters featuring tea-smoked salmon & king prawns, or bigger plates of ribeye steak béarnaise, with nursery puds ending things on a high note.
