we had a huge one of these in the front garden for donkeys years, the plant was sadly dug up a couple of years ago but not before i managed to get a couple of cutting to root, i've now three mystery plants as i don't know what they are lol i was thinking some sort of Skimmia maybe?

its evergreen with really quite thick glossy leaves, its flowering now with lovely white flower heads (you can see in the pick) which later turn into blue/black berries.

Pretty sure it's one of the Viburnum family.
