The Hollybush is a buzzy gastro pub run by a youthful team that successfully delivers the gastronomy part without neglecting that essential pub side of the equation. There are real ales at the hand pumps and a menu that comes up with pub classics such as local sausages with mash and onion gravy alongside more modern British fare like duck liver parfait with orange and star anise jelly. A main course of brined and roasted chicken breast with celeriac fondant, roasted salsify, toasted hazelnuts and thyme jus shows ambition and creativity, while puddings head straight for the comfort zone with good old lemon meringue tart.
