The food is ok at best and it’s always full of plastic gangsters. If you like fighting and rough looking women then give this place a go if you want a nice pub I suggest you look elsewhere.

The Hollybush is a very old pub in the Loughton High Road. It has undergone many changes over the years and the interior is pleasant enough, if a bit too open for its quite limited height. I have visited and reviewed this pub in the...More

Visit the Hollybush fairly often on a casual night out. Very overpriced, overcrowded and incredibly rude bouncers. One in particular working during my last visit was extremely rude to my group of friends for zero reason and refused to let us speak to a manager....More

Had attheraces channel on when I visited, which was great as I'm very much into horse racing. Over £4 for a pint of Stella (only £3.75 at Toby Carvery) is a bit steep. Apart from that there is a nice seating area out the back.

This place is ideal to have a few drinks and chill with friends. There is a large outdoor space with seating and heaters, reasonably priced as well and they do food too.
