We used to meet up with family at the bushel twice a year for lunch. No longer. Not only has the menu changed the meals were awful. Such a shame as we used to look forward to it. The fish was all batter and very little fish , and the chips were served up in what looked like a trendy... More

We attended a family wedding with many of our family so were able to see into most of the rooms. They are all fairly spacious and comfortable. Ours was quite hot but you are able to borrow a fan.The whole place is full of character with lots of different areas with comfortable chairs. The food is very good with plenty... More

We have stayed here quite a few times as we have friends in the area. I love that it is oldie worldie with a modern twist. It has two outdoor areas you can sit and have a drink one of them is now a none smoking area which is good. Its very close to the town center, just a short... More

I visit here quite regularly with my husband either just for drinks or dinner. The food is good, the steak and ale pie is amazing, can't eat it all though! Nice place to relax, not too many children come here, which is a plus for us! Would recommend for a nice reasonably priced meal.

We stayed here on a Saturday in June as it was only a stones throw from the restaurant we had a reservation in. The hotel is very central and as well as an allocated space in the hotel car park there was on street parking directly outside. Essentially a pub with rooms. The standard of decor in the public rooms... More

We were part of a group of six couples visiting BSE for a National 3 league fixture with the local club. All managed to get rooms booked in the Bushell, all had comfortable accommodation, a good dinner on the first night, excellent choice of breakfast in the morning, and although the rooms had different rates, they totaled our overall expenditure...

We stayed @ The Bushel late in 2014 and we finally got to travel back last weekend with friends. The bar staff were lovely and friendly, one of the young men went to the extra mile through out the stay for us and really made us feel welcome. We ate on the saturday evening the pub had a large table... More

Just popped in for a bite of tea before the theatre. Had a slider board, now I know what a slider is, I've decided I like them. Very tastey and good value at just under a tenner. Ideal for two people wanting a small meal or one if you're a bit of a guts. Was intrigued by the deep fired... More
