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.

We pre-booked a table for friends who were visiting us. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the service was spot on. We ended up spending the whole night there! Will be visiting again in the new year.

As someone who has eaten and drank at The Hollybush for almost 15 years, I feel the service we received on Saturday night was nothing short of insulting. To give the team credit, this is a great place to drink; we had my dads wake...More

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.
