About the Pub

Traditional pub with exposed beams & flagstone floors. Locally sourced food and ales. The Bush has a cosy bar with a log fire, a large restaurant and a large pub garden where meals can be served al fresco in the summer months.

Historic Interest

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 24 Nov in 1824 states that : For sale, on the Long Melford side, in the Parish of Shrimpling, the public-house, called The BUSH (being sold with a substantial tower-built Windmill, extensive malting houses & 12 cottages) within a mile of the Bury road & 8 miles from that Market. A report in the Ipswich Journal** on 26 Oct in 1869 states that : The licensed Vctuallers Tea Association advertised the sale of tea via its Suffolk Agents. This was a response to the irregular sale of Wine by Grocers & included a reference to S.CLAYDON of an unnamed pub in Shimpling, Bury. It was built in the 16th century but only converted into a pub in the 19th. Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at suffolkcamra.co.uk/pubs/pub/845
