Do not order the chicken burger was completely burnt even the waiter was shocked about how bad it was. Other burger I got to replace that one wasn't great either won't be coming back. First time I had been which was a shame and will defo be my last. Such a shame when it's such a lovely pub.

This is the fourth time we have stayed at the Bushel. It is well situated to explore Bury St Edmunds and the surrounding area, which is all worth seeing. This time we stayed for 7 nights between Christmas and New Year, visiting friends and family. Very friendly helpful staff, comfortable cosy rooms with coffee making facilities, large TV, large and...

The Bushel were always helpful..from the initial directions to their small but adequate car park at the rear of the pub..where my car wouldn't be needed for our stay in town, due to the central location where walking anywhere in town was less than ten minutes. Our room in the converted adjoining outbuilding was small but cosy and contemporary with... More

Stayed here with family for a night. The location is very central and has free parking onsite, which is very convenient. Rooms were cosy and very clean, followed by a fantastic breakfast in the morning. (Best sausages ever!) will stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel many times before but this is the last time! Recently things seem to have changed and the vibe of the pub feels different, some of the staff have changed and the little touches such as names used at breakfast have also stopped. I have noticed these changes since around August. Room 9 is a... More

Called in with a friend and it is what it claims, a pub that serves food. The atmosphere is obviously very public house like but comfortable and we were greeted on arrival so felt at home. Great to eat or just have a drink. We were presented immediately with menus and there is a great selection to choose from, quick... More
