I recently stayed at the Bushel whilst visiting the Bury St Edmunds area and found it to have been a pleasant experience. I was alone and was given a double bedroom which was very clean and comfortable, with a nice large walk in shower. The breakfast was of a high standard and at £60 for the night, this presented good... More

Stayed for one night on Saturday just gone in room six which is in the main building above the bar and overlooking the street but had no problem with noise. Some might think the room is a little small but we had no issues with this. Everything is in the room that you might need, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, tea/... More

Lovely time out for an evening. Slightly slow service (particularly at the bar) but worth the wait! It is a wonderful setting and could easily fit large parties. Would definitely go back and recommend to friends!

I arrived late on a sunday night at the Bushel for my one night stay, The staff were very friendly and welcoming, I was even shown to my room and offered help with my bags. I stayed in one of the courtyard rooms which was lovely. Really clean and a wonderful Monsoon style shower as good as any 5* hotel... More

Over priced ,the chef be better off in a school kitchen, frozen pub grub, over priced and not worth the price, staff has no diploma what so ever. Worst pub in bury and over priced at all means. Would not stay nor eat in the place again, unless you like average food.

We meet up with family here twice a year as the Bushel is very welcoming and the staff are pleasant. The only drawback is that the food isn't up to much,but to be fair it isn't expensive. The dining room has a lovely cosy feel .

My husband, daughter, grandson, and I ate at The Bushel this evening. Two of the meals were burgers, my grandson had fish and chips, and these meals were okay. I ordered the ribeye steak and asked for it to be cooked medium-rare. This was the most expensive meal on the menu, but when it arrived, the steak was definitely over-cooked,... More

The staff were friendly and helpful from the outset. My room (the nutshell) was lovely, quiet and comfortable with a super comfy bed and an amazing shower. The food is worth staying in for in an evening and very well priced to boot and breakfast was most definitely worth getting up for. All in all, a lovely stay at a... More
