‘Please don’t attempt to drive to The Holly Bush: you’ll spend hours trying to find it’ warns one regular, and 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 and 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 and leading on to fishy platters featuring tea-smoked salmon and king prawns, or bigger plates of ribeye steak béarnaise, with nursery puds ending things on a high note.

Great food in a very traditional setting. Intimate wintery atmosphere and friendly service. Enjoyed our evening thoroughly and will certainly be back.

This pub has tons of character, ancient wood paneled decor, little nooks and crannies to settle in, and a tiny bit of outdoor space. We like it, it does a few good pints apparently, and reasonable standard pub food. We've eaten downstairs in the bar area and had a pretty ordinary fish pie, and upstairs in the dining room where seasonal soup and terrine for starters, steak and salads were tasty and enjoyed. Staff have always been prompt and friendly with us.

What a disappointment! Even though we had booked a table for 8pm on a Saturday evening at least half of the main courses were not available when someone eventually took our order an hour after we sat down. After our order was finally taken we were informed that more main courses were not available. The waiting staff seemed to think that this was just bad luck on our part rather than bad management. When we eventually spoke to the manager his apparent lack of concern was quite astonishing. This was the most awful birthday dinner ever and the 4 friends we had invited along thought so too.
Very poor food and service.
