Me and my family have been to the pub many time before, always had good food although very busy. Tonight food very poor, 2 members of staff very aggressive when I asked for a coffee, would never go back there if staff treat customers that way, never had to complain before, saw a different side to the Holybush tonight. I would recommed the Dog and Doublet at Sandon, or the Wayfarer at Stone, both establishments, food much better, staff outtstanding and more varied menu (read more)

"We though we'd give it another try after our last experience" We first went here about two years ago and had a rubbish overpriced lunch. Because it was a long time ago we figured we would take friends there to try it out...after all two years is a long time. Firstly some things you need to know 1) you can't book a table here 2) if you're paying by card they will require you to leave your card behind the bar.

I explained that not only did I feel nauseous but mine and my daughter's evening had been ruined. My daughter was unable to... (read more)

Yes nice cosy pub setting,busy. This place was recommended by friends but we were a little disappointed. baising steak in a way too salty sauce,veges were fine nice crispy and tasty but the chips were hard as if they had been part cooked then refried just before serving which made them very hard. Partner had a fish with the same problem with the fries.Deserts though were fine,good sized portions. (read more)

The food at the Holly Bush Inn in Salt, near Stafford is the best pub food I've ever eaten, and very well priced! We started with a big glass of red wine for me, and a couple of ales for my 2 friends.
We decided to have a starter between the 3, because they are expensive. We selected the pears in Stilton sauce, and we were not disappointed. We even asked for bread to dip into the sauce! Probably, they should offer it with the dish, as it is so tasty.
Then I had the guinea fowl with grape... (read more)
