This place is an absolute gem of a pub for drinks and food. I've not been here for years but never eaten only popped in for drinks every now and then. Staff are really friendly and welcoming, the choice of drinks is amazing, and the food was all fresh and really tasty. I would recommend this place to anyone and will be 100% going again.

The Holy Grale of real ale pubs in Derbyshire. If you like real ales/ciders, you must visit The Holly Bush Inn, Makeney, Derbyshire. It's a "proper traditional pub". Open log fires and the interior decor is probably unchanged since the day it was built. The food menu and food quality are both great. I had the "Big Bush Burger" ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think it was an 8oz hand-made burger, topped with 2 pork sausages, gherkin, and enveloped within a brioche bun. Accompanied by homemade skin on chips, salad, and balsamic vinegar. It was AMAZING, and although I was choc a block, I just couldn't leave any..... I can't comment on the desserts, as I'm saving those options for my next visit.

Traditional village pub. Excellent choice of real ales, good choice on menu all freshly cooked and good sized portions. Staff friendly, great atmosphere, real open fires in winter months.

Lovely country pub serving several casked and kegged ales. Some of which are changing guests. Really nice character and ambience inside the pub. Serves food. Cold and warm bar snacks available . Open for lunch and dinner. Pub has several rooms and snugs. Only drawback is the limited parking as the old car park is now used for outside seating. This may change in the winter months, I donโ€™t know. You have to find a space on a very narrow road which isnโ€™t ideal. Apart from that itโ€™s highly recommended . Helpful staff and Dog friendly. ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿฅ˜ ๐Ÿ•

I am not lying when I say this was THE BEST Pub I have been able to visit In my Life!!!! The design and atmosphere was amazing, even The people (Both guests and Staff) were friendly!!!! An amazing range of Gluten Free (most of The Menu could be made without gluten) and Vegan/Vegetarian options I have to say I would not give It any less than 5 Stars.
