The Holly Bushm

The Holly Bush

The Holly Bush is the quintessential London pub. Built in 1643 it has changed little over the centuries. Hidden in the attractive back alleys of Hampstead, The Holly Bush is a cosy warren of small rooms with low ceilings giving it a distinct homely feel. With a rich gastropub menu including traditional dishes - beef & ale pie, pheasant and fisherman's pie are among the favourites - combined with a roaring coal fire in winter and a spot out the front to enjoy a refreshing Pimm's in the summer, this is the ideal place to while away a weekend afternoon. Real ales such as Fuller's ESB, London Pride and Harvey's Sussex Best make it more than worth the climb up the steep steps - just be careful on the way back down after a tipple or two.
