A quintessential London local, The Holly Bush is a charming centuries-old pub in the heart of historic Hampstead. Set inside a grade II listed building, it was originally built as a house in the 1790s, then used as Assembly Rooms in the 19th century before becoming a pub in 1928. It was bought by Fuller’s Brewery in 2010.
Wrapped in traditional 18th-century wood-panelled walls, you’ll find a cosy fireplace, tufted leather banquets and plenty of worn wood, and a menu that focuses on fresh cooking and seasonal ingredients, with comforting dishes such as whole roasted sea bass, grapefruit, blood orange, fennel seeds, samphire & broad beans.
And if you’re an Oasis fan, Liam Gallagher has been known to frequent the pub.
A perfect place to take refuge from the rain or respite after rambling on nearby Hampstead Heath. There are plenty of nooks to tuck yourself away and enjoy a conversation or a book. Better yet, if you are luck you can nestle up to the fire in the bar or the coffee room.
