More information on the Holly Bush Inn at Smethwick to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to the Holly Bush Inn from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on the Holly Bush Inn. There is information on Smethwick and Staffordshire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
