Welcome to the HollyBush – a traditional 16th Century country pub offering a cosy environment and great value, home cooked food.

The Hollybush is trading normally again after the disruptions of recent years, which have included a full electrical upgrade to future-proof our wonderful old building.

Serving a fine selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, all supported by an excellent menu of mainly home made food, The Hollybush is a hidden gem which is well worth searching for – a traditional English County Pub on the edge of some beautiful countryside.

However, we remain aware that many potential customers are still nervous of indoor public spaces so will continue to  provide as clean and safe an environment as we can by adhering strictly to hospitality industry guidelines. We are also fortunate in having such a lovely garden, with seating for 100+ so eating outside in sunny weather is a very real possibility here – why not give it a try?

Our hugely popular Sunday Roasts continue to be a weekly highlight, as do our lunchtime jazz sessions (every Wednesday and twice per month on a Friday). On a Saturday you can even enjoy a full cooked breakfast so whichever day you visit us, you should never leave  hungry!

Our Darts team is doing well in the St Albans Darts League and our visiting Clubs and associations have increased in recent years with four U3A groups amongst them (Quizzers, Cribbers, Historians and Music lovers!) and Redbourn Folk Club continue to use our Old School Room to host their Wednesday meetings each week.

Whether to attend one of our events, or just to enjoy a quiet drink or meal in lovely surroundings you will be assured of a warm welcome!

We hope to see you soon!
