user reviews of the Holly Bush Inn, Bollington

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Fine traditional Robinsons pub situated on the main road through Bollington village.

An attractive looking mock-Tudor exterior features leaded, frosted windows - some hearing a holly bush motif.

It's a three roomed pub with one small room to the left and right before you reach the main bar, which is a cosy wood panelled and carpeted bar with some fixed banquette seating round the walls. Note also the drop down screens above the bar counter. The walls are decorated with plates, old photos etc. The room on the right has oak beams and each room retains an old fireplace. There's evidence of bell pushes being present in earlier days.The pub is listed in CAMRA's National Inventory of Unspoilt Interiors. Rather incongruously for a pub of this style, live entertainment was being advertised.

On my recent Thursday afternoon visit at around 3pm, the pub was completely empty and a young girl with tattoos and a big dog sitting outside on a bench seat, and who really looked as though she should have been at school, rather begrudgingly stubbed out her cigarette and followed me in to the pub to serve me what turned out to be an excellent pint of Dizzy Blonde - 2.30p. Other beers on were Hatters and Unicorn.

This is an attractive looking pub, both inside and out, but I was distinctly underwhelmed by the experience as a whole and I'd be inclined to try one of the other pubs in the village instead. There's no shortage of choice.

Classic 1930s Robinsons pub on the main road through the town, with an unspoilt interior that is on CAMRA's National Inventory. It keeps its original layout, with a snug on the left as you enter, a bar room on the right and a lounge in front of you. What's really impressive is the amount of wood panelling and green seating in the place. It makes it very atmospheric and traditional, you could easily imagine being here 50 years ago. The snug is particularly impressive, being timbered around the interior of the room. good beer choice providing you like Robinsons ales (although even if you don't the pub is worth a visit), with Original, Unicorn and the excellent Dizzy Blonde.

Unfortuntely the owners left and the website is not representative of the pub at the moment. It was deathly quiet and seemed to be run by folk who the brewery had got in, who were nevertheless very nice the pub can pick up and more people return. this pub will appeal to any lover of traditional boozers and is definitely worth a visit on a tour of Bollington, a town with many decent pubs.
