Real Ale Ray left this review about The Holly Bush

The interior consists of two small rooms, one either side of the entrance. The left hand side room had its own separate door for entrance. The room was tastefully decorated, with dark blue patterned wallpaper and had access to one side of the bar. The room on the right of entrance was also homely and comfortable with painted dark purple walls and white woodwork. The room also had an elegant fireplace, which had a couple of small paintings above it. The corridor lead from this to another small room set out for dining. The main area was behind the bar area and continued over to the right. The walls in the main area were clad with 10" planks up from the dado height to ceiling, which looked to have been there for quite some time as they had aged nicely.
The young barman was friendly and helpful. There was a choice of six ales on handpump, four regulars from Everards and two guest, which were Burton Bridge bitter and Wood Farm Scrum. All the beers we tried were in top condition.
The barman told us the pub will change hands on the 1st March and the new landlord taking over is also a real ale enthusiast.

The Holly Bush is a really nice unaltered pub.
Once inside there are three seperate rooms,there is a small room to the front,we went down a corridor which lead to a smart looking room to the rear left,this room was bare boarded and had wood bench seating and small stools,there was another room to the right but there is no bar in it.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Purity Gold which went down very well,the other beers i noted were Hook Norton Lion,Black Sheep Bitter,Rat Dirty Rat,Hobsons Town Crier and a seasonal beer from Jennings.
The pub was fairly busy with drinkers on our Saturday afternoon visit.
This pub is well worth a visit if you visit Alcester.
