Following the abrupt closure of one pub in Alcester, The Holly Bush came to the rescue of our group of 10 who were spending a few days in the town. With barely half-an-hour's notice, and having only started providing food that week, the staff served...More

Just moved to the area. Nice pub with great period features. New owners are very friendly. Can't wait for the launch of the menu in early August. Good beer selection. Will definitely return.

One of the best Sunday lunches I've had in a long time! Meat was cooked perfectly, potatoes were great and it is well priced. Great selection of real ales.

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.
