The Holly Bush
This historic old pub once used to be stables.
Location: 22 Holly Mount, Hampstead, NW3 6SG
Description: The Holly Bush here began life in the 1640's as the stable block of a nearby house. In 1796, the painter George Romney bought the house and stables, but within a few years sold them to Hampstead Assembly Rooms, who leased the stables to a victualler. He converted them into a tavern in the early 1800's.
Dr Johnson and Boswell both drank here in the nooks and crannies giving it a literary reputation that has endured a long time.
