Historic town pub with contemporary interiors, fine wines, craft beers and delicious food – don’t miss the daily specials!

Hats off to the One Bull! The staff are bright and knowledgeable, the food bursts with flavour, the wine list is well-informed. What’s more, the One Bull is part of a family owned and run business including the craft brewery, Brewshed: try the ‘American Blonde’. You enter this pretty sash-windowed pub to find a split-level interior of wood and tiled floors, tidy tables, brown sofas and leather high chairs at the bar, neat as a new pin, with sash windows and brick fireplace remaining. It’s always busy and no surprise: the food looks tasty and the menu is adventurous. Perhaps beef scrumpets with root salad and horseradish vinegar then hake fillet with salsa verde. There are roasts on Sundays, cheeses from Suffolk and pud grazing boards to share... who could resist tarte tatin with salted caramel? As for Bury, it’s a great little market town steeped in history.

  • The One Bull is approximately 600 years old and is one of the oldest pubs in Bury St Edmunds.
  • The One Bull stands next to the old abbey walls and its name is believed to stem from the Latin word 'bulla' which was a papal seal used on official documents.
  • Bury St Edmunds is home to Greene King and also to our craft brewery, Brewshed, whose beers can be sampled at The One Bull.
  • If culture is your thing, look no further. The town houses the Theatre Royal, the only surviving example of a Regency theatre in the country as well as award winning music and arts venue The Apex and the charming Abbeygate Cinema.
  • Bury St Edmunds has something for everyone - a beautiful town steeped in history, close to Newmarket and Cambridge with many wonderful independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. We love it!
