The Hollingwood Hotel is a great community pub.  There are three main areas - sports, games and dining area all served from a central bar.  The lounge has 70 covers for dining and although it is reasonably busy, there is an opportunity to further develop the core food and function business.  There are great outside areas both to the front and rear of the pub with a quality smoking shelter and pleasant garden area to the side of the pub.  The food offer is Marstons Urban menu which has a diverse range of dishes and also includes some great drinks offers.  The pub is very much a local community pub and has strong trade driven by entertainment and sports.  The function room is large and has the capacity to seat 90 guests.
