Welcome to the Hollybush ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The Hollybush is one of Redbourn's hidden gems, often missed by the passing visitor but much appreciated by those who know it.

Church End is one of the prettiest streets in Redbourn and boasts no less than 11 Listed Buildings, including both St Mary’s Church and the Hollybush itself (AS FEATURED IN "VILLAGE OF THE YEAR" with Penelope Keith on Channel 4 in January 2018).

The Hollybush caters for locals and occasional visitors alike, with space for 20 cars to the rear of the building and you will always be assured of a warm welcome. Join us for one of our ACCLAIMED SUNDAY LUNCHES, but it is best to book in advance to ensure we can cater for your needs.
As the only live music venue in the area, and offering a minimum of one live session every week of the year, there is always something going on - why not pop in and find out for yourself? Our lunchtime jazz sessions are very popular - every Wednesday and at least one Friday of every month.
Our next evening of LIVE MUSIC is from the ever popular SMUDGE on Saturday 5th May. Be here!

The open fire adds to the warmth in the winter, but a smile goes a long way at any time of the year. Ours is a very cosy building when the open fire is roaring away in the winter and with lovely gardens to the side and rear, a real oasis of relaxation in the summer.
The Hollybush offers something for everyone – our older visitors enjoy the atmosphere and youngsters like the traditional feel of the two bars and dining area – a 16th Century building featuring warm coloured furnishings and lots of exposed beams. Just mind your head as some of the beams are very low!

To the rear of the main building is The Old School Room, built in early Victorian times to support the provision of a basic education to local children. Darts and Cribbage are now played here and this private space also acts as our Function Room. Here we host dinner parties, business meetings and social gatherings of all types for all ages. The Hollybush is also located just a few hundred yards from the Nicky Line – a favourite track for walkers and cyclists alike.

With a comprehensive menu of traditional pub food including something for everyone, including vegetarians and those requiring Gluten Free options, a great selection of wines, beers and spirits and surrounded by history (incl. the remains of an Iron Age fort just down the road) you’ll not be disappointed when you visit.

We look forward to seeing you!
