The quality of service has plummeted!!! This is my first bad review. I feel that I have to share this because I was so put out that it ruined my night and that was my first drink of the night. It was Saturday night and the bar was busy so I queued up in line and waited 10 mins getting... More

The Hollybush has a lovely atmosphere, relaxed decor & a welcoming feel. Having eaten here several times in the past I would definitely recommend the food, we ate from the party menu recently & everything was nice, brownie pudding a tad solid but soon melted. Staff seem cheery too.

We visited the Hollybush for my mothers 50th birthday on a recommendation from the Eynsham hotel which we were staying at. I will start with the only negative that we were sat on a table which I would say was for solely 4/5 people and our only recommendation is that another table could be offered to be added to ours...

I visited The Hollybush with my partner and was thoroughly impressed! The food was outstanding and there was a great choice of wine and beer. The staff where very friendly and attentive even on a busy evening, really couldn't fault our visit. Looking forward to coming back soon.

2 out of the 3 meals were good-chicken stuffed with chorizo-good, steak n ale pie- good (though pie lid was a little under cooked), fish n chips- not good- batter was very thick and fish was sadly over cooked-so at £14:50-a let down, considering the cost!

Very good, staff were very helpful and involved with the organisation and helped me to pull the surprise of well! Barn was a very nice venue - loved the bath ice bucket for the fizz! Fizz prices highly inflated but other than that - fab overall experience!

Ate here with a group of family and friends in November. Staff were friendly but didn't seem very experienced, food was ok but not worth the price tag. Drinks were London prices. Probably wouldn't return as there are much better restaurants and pubs in Witney.

Fair play mochas are top notch and the buttermilk chicken is top bins, very enjoyable pub to work in.
