Graham Coombs left this review about The Holly Blue

A large new-build rustic eating house with nice views of the former rolling hills, which you can watch being devoured by the growing estates around it. Despite being entirely contrived, the interior is not unpleasant with lots of recycled brick and heavy woodwork, decorated with bookshelves and other paraphernalia. Probably more the sort of place you would take your auntie to for lunch, but actually not bad for a relaxing pint on a sunny afternoon. A Hall & Woodhouse pub with Badger and Tanglefoot on pump; Fursty Ferret, Golden Champion and a seasonal special Red Roaster clipped but not available. It's named after a local butterfly, by the way.
