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

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...

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
