The Holly Bush

Posted in Restaurants & Bars

The Holly Bush is an amazing English pub nestled away in the heart of Hampstead.  It is an uphill trek that is well worth it once you have arrived.  On the numerous occasions I have frequented the establishment the food has always been excellent and is comparably priced. They specialise in hearty portions that serve up a taste of local British cuisine in typical old style pub surroundings. Some of my favourites are the Scotch Egg and any of the British pies that are served with amazing mustard mashed potatoes. I highly recommend it if you are looking for something a little more off the beaten path. Also a quick note on British service. It is customary here for you to flag down your server when you are ready to order, need anything, or are ready for the bill. So do not be shy or else you will be waiting. Forever. Cheers!
