    Dirty glasses, dirty toilets, no toilet roll, no fruit shoots,£5.80 for two j2os I only had £5.50 on me so had to pay £6.80 to use my card as they would be "penalised for it". Didn't stay for food. The surrounding area is beautiful. A river runs right past. If the maintenance and cleaning of the place was kept up this pub could be a real gem.

    The best sticky toffee pudding I have ever had! A must try for everyone.

    I stayed the night at the Hollybush as we have friends who live in Machen. The website says rooms from £40 but as it was the 6 nations weekend the price had been jacked up to £140 for a family room. The website says 'luxury b&b', premier inn style accommodation, furnished to an excellent standard. When we arrived the landlady was rude, insulted my friend. The room was warm and the linen was clean. Other than that the room was filthy. paint peeling and dirt and fluff in all the corners (see photos). We could only find one towel, no toiletries. They do provide some cereal and milk in the room. I emailed the owner and apparently they were let down by a decorator the week before and the cleaner would be given feedback. My advice would be to avoid the accommodation unless you can get it for very cheap rather than the rip off £140. (I cannot comment on the pub or food itself as I did not spend anytime there)

    Lovely location, great pub with both bar and restaurant food, the bar is cosy with an open fire, welcoming staff and a good range of drinks, dogs are welcome in the beer garden.

  • ★★★☆☆ Chris Long

    Nice beer, nice restaurant but £10 minimum card payments in 2017 let's it down
