The Holly Bush



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.
