About our venue

Everyone is made to feel welcome at the Rushbrooke Arms. A traditional building with a thatched roof we are ideally situated one mile from Bury St Edmunds on the A134 road to Sudbury. We are popular for food which is served daily in our bar or restaurant from a varied main menu offering a wide choice of old and modern favourites along with light bites at lunchtime. Our traditional Sunday Roast is served with a choice of meats as well as fresh vegetables and delicious Yorkshire puddings. With our restaurant previously being extended we have seating for 250. In the warmer weather the adults can relax and soak up the sun in the beer garden while the kids play in the outdoor play area. There is wheelchair access into the pub, with a disabled toilet and baby changing facility to ensure everyone can visit us here. You can enjoy a drink from our extensive bar and a range of wines is on offer to complement your meal with speciality coffees to finish. With a friendly atmosphere the Rushbrooke Arms is a popular choice where the helpful staff look forward to seeing you soon.
