This quaint, 16th-century inn is a landmark in the village of St Hilary – its charm saw it featured in the BBC’s Sherlock back in 2012. With its flagstone flooring and log-burning fire, The Bush Inn offers a cosy atmosphere, so whether you’re looking for a secluded place to solve a mystery, or simply somewhere to catch up with friends, this historic pub will offer you a warm welcome. The menus boast a wealth of home-cooked dishes and the chef is renowned for his pies and Wellingtons. At lunch, lighter meals like warm goat’s cheese salad, seafood salad and a selection of sandwiches are offered alongside hearty hot meals. In the evening, why not treat yourself to a juicy lamb or beefburger? Alternatively, try their signature pork belly with crackling and local lamb from Chigwell Farm. A range of specials is available every day and the chef has created special gluten-free menus for those with allergies.
