Real Ale Ray left this review about The Holly Bush Inn

I was looking forward to getting a pint of the Little Bush Brewery ale on our visit, which is usually brewed by the manager in the cellar. The manager told me he hadn't brewed since last summer and hopefully he'd get back to some brewing later on. This conversation was overheard by some of the locals, who took great opportunity for a bit of banter and commented that his beer was only good enough for swilling the yard.
Seven handpumps with six ales and one cider. The line up was Dancing Duck Dcuk, Abbott, Bass, Harvest Pale, TT Landlord, Leadmill American Girl and a mango cider. I went for the Leadmill, which was a well flavoured beer.
This was very much a community pub that was busy on our Friday lunchtime visit, with a mix of diners and drinkers.
