The Hollybush is a McMullen's owned high street bar. You can see from the exterior this was once a nice little pub, but one which now hopes to attract the younger Loughton residents. Consequently the decor has been suitably modernised - clinical, minimalist and rather boring - colours sweep across the spectrum from beige to white, with a bit of black thrown in; it's the usual bland McMullen's interpretation of what they think passes for sophisticated in the outer suburbs. Still, its not that bad here - you can enjoy a McMullen's ale here with relative ease. We've yet to see it on a Friday or Saturday night, where coupled with slightly extended hours we suspect the ambience could go either way, even if the more annoying locals probably gather at the nearby late night 'Minx bar' instead. There are enough good pubs nearby to rank this your third or forth choice in Loughton, unless you're purposely seeking a younger crowd.

i also ordered food,i opted for the sunday roast when it eventually arrived it was luke warm but what amazed me was that i had 1 small roast potato cut in half!! that was my roast potatoes!! it took me 2 mins looking for them they were hidden underneath 2 hard carrots.i would have expected at least 8 of them for the price they charged £8 for that?you can get the same meal at the last post 100 yds away at half the price and more roasties too.never going back to that cesspit.

i last visited this pub just before christmas 2014,it opened late and once inside there was broken glass strewn all over the floor,nobody from behind the bar was interested in clearing it up and the toilets were filthy..no toilet paper poo in the toilets and vomit in the sink! the barmaid was more interested in txting her friends than serving customers.avoid this dive at all costs
