Having been a long standing customer of The Holly Bush some 10 years ago I did not hesitate to take up a Groupon offer to eat there again. Much is as before - cosy if very small olde worlde bar area and generally a very nice atmosphere from locals and staff. The restaurant has been remodelled and is all the better for it. Intimate and nicely lit. We were early diners and were invited by a less than charming 'maitre de' for the want of a better title to sit by the waiters station and... (read more)

Having found this pub we will definately revisit it. It's a bit in the sticks yet less than 10 miles from Daventry, Banbury or Warwick.
Having read the other reviews I thought I should add this one as we undersatnd the licensee changed at the end of 2009.
The food, service and atmosphere are great. Whether you are looking for a quiet meal for 2 or booking in a large party, the hollybush will do it.
The food is all fresh and cooked to order, the specials are mouth watering and good value.

A very lively pub. Obviously popular with the locals. Good mix of age groups. No evidence of unseamly behaviour. Avised when ordering the meal that there would be a delay since food was freshly cooked. Worth the wait, food was well cooked and nicely presented. Waiting staff were pleasant and very attentive. A great night out. (read more)

Despite smart, clean atmosphere and good first impression, our Saturday pub lunch was a huge disappointment. The service was poor, most of the menu items were unavailable, the food we ordered was of marginal quality, chips were last nights - refried!!!, cauliflower cheese consisted of one small floret of cauliflower and two smaller florets of broccoli. Seasonal vegetables were "unavailable"....in England in October!!! The Holleybush harks back to the bad olde days of english food......a poor... (read more)

The service was mediocre, food very average, and the prices high in comparison. Would not visit Holly Bush Inn again and am unable to recommend it to family or friends. (read more)

Since the Holly Bush Inn, Priors Marston, was taken over in the new year the pub is much improved. Back to the good little pub it used to be and much busier. Home made meals, large portions, friendly and helpful staff, lovely atmosphere. Can be a small wait when ordering mains only as everything is cooked to order. I would recommend trying again if you were put off before, a very enjoyable night out! (read more)

We had booked and therefore got a meal. Apparently a booking of a party of 25 had severely stretched the chef - even though the restaurant did not appear to be full. There was no wine list available and we were asked to chose from the board. Fair enough but the bottle that arrived was Italian and not the Chilean we chose. It had been changed.
Overall I thought the restaurant service on my visit was pretty poor. The glassware was ill matched and looked dirty. The food was average. The... (read more)

The Holly Bush Inn used to be a nice pub serving good quality food for reasonable prices. I feel the prices are now very high for seemingly poor quality food.
I used to take relatives to this pub when visiting, I don't think I will be doing that anymore. (read more)
