The Holly Bush
Negotiate the steep steps from Heath Street up to isolated, cobbled Holly Mount to this house built in the 1790s by portrait painter George Romney. It was later taken over by Benskins, a Watford brewery, in 1928, and much more recently by Fuller’s. Three low-ceilinged bar areas carry a lived-in feel, the one bar counter purveying pints of Fuller’s ESB, Seafarers and London Pride, as well as Harveys Sussex Best, Leffe, Beck’s and Blue Moon. Pimm’s and lemonade is a summer treat, as is a spot out front; consult the chalked-up weather forecast should you be pondering another steep climb the next day, perhaps to work off the smartened-up gastropub cooking.
