Our Beers


A CAMRA Good Beer Guide regular, the Holly Bush prides itself on a clean cellar with good practices. With an ever changing selection of good quality real ales from local micro breweries, of which Derbyshire has many, and some of the best, to national award winners. Our famous, "Beer from the Jug," serving Marstons Pedigree fresh from the cask. With Timothy Taylors Landlord, Fullers London Pride and Greene King Abbot Ale on regular hand pull and 3 changing guest ales for the real ale fans. Plus Krombacher and Amstell for the lager drinkers.


We also stock up to 3 guest ciders alongside Westons Old Rosie, Bee sting Perry and Thatchers Gold. As well as all the above, we have a range of fruit wines, a selection of house wines including wine from the English Wine Company at Renishaw Hall & a selection of non alcoholic drinks, so most tastes and fancies should be catered for.
