Pub overview

A great opportunity to re-establish this historic pub into the best pub in town.

The Bushel has one of the best locations in Newmarket, and is packed with potential. Currently split into two separate trading areas,one being the lively town bar with TV screens and traditional pub games, and the other acting predominantly as a dining space for daytime shoppers and OAPs looking for good value pub food, and then poker and darts groups in the evenings. It is very traditional in style, and packed with character and history. There is also a good sized trade kitchen with access to both trade spaces. The pub also thrives when the sun comes out, as the patio terrace area is one of the best in the town centre.

This pub is a great opportunity, and will only get better. There is a refurbishment planned for the very near future which will help to transform this pub back to its rightful place as the place to go for a drink in the town.

One good sized L-shaped main bar area with long main bar, and toilets off. Separate L-shaped dining room with own small bar, and own entrance. Access to kitchen from both sides. Gents and ladies toilets accessed from both trade areas. Generous sized trade kitchen has access to both sides of the pub. There is also a good sized patio outside the main entrance of the pub, and a covered smoking area at the rear of the property.
