Difficult to find, tiny out of the way luscious little old pub chocked fill of aged wood and obligatory snugs and nooks and crannies. Beer is Adnams so no problem there. The reverse of hipster and long may it remain so. Haven't tried the food but assuming I can find it again I'll give it a go.more

My only regret in London? I did not get the chance to dine at Holly Bush.

We stopped for beers at Holly Bush during our London Walks Hampstead Pub Crawl and loved the cheery, cozy atmosphere in this pub. The pub attracts quite a large crowd of locals and tourists in the evenings. Judging by the delicious smells wafting from the kitchen and the cheap beer prices it was quite obvious why!...more
