Mark our brilliant new Head Chef and his kitchen brigade have brought with them a wealth of experience and knowledge to The Hollow Bottom since arriving in 2018. 

Mark’s passion, skills and enthusiasm are obvious and the Menu that he has created reflects this in every area.

The new Menu brings such delights as a Ham hock ballotine; Halloumi, honey & Harissa burger; Slow cooked pork belly and a Vegan mushroom Gnocchi.

We also have some incredible desserts including Pimms jelly and Sticky toffee pudding.  Mark is always looking to source local ingredients wherever possible using lots of imagination.

In the Bar

A full range of beverages are available at the bar from morning coffee, afternoon tea to a wide range of beers including favourites like Greeneking IPA, along with two monthly rotating Ales from our local and national Craft Brewers including Adam Henson’s Butcombe Rare Breed. A wide range of quality spirits are available along with a collection of 15 single malts. The usual draught ales are also on tap including Guinness, Becks, Peroni & Asahi from Japan. Cider is a permanent fixture in our country pub with a choice of SEVEN including Mortimers Orchard & Thatchers Gold on tap, Aswell as Thatchers Haze, Strongbow, Magners, Dunkertons Organic Cider & Kopparberg.

Interesting Fact: Did you know that many years ago in our pub, customers had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they would simply whistle to get some service. “Wet your whistle” is the phrase inspired by this practice, however we now use high quality glassware
