Welcome to Bushel and Strike

Ashwell Hertfordshire

The Bushel & Strike is a charming early 19th Century country pub in the picturesque Anglo-Saxon village of Ashwell, North Hertfordshire.

Nestled beneath the 14th century medieval giant, St Mary’s church, ‘The Bushel’ as we’re fondly known as by the locals is a cosy family-run pub offering delicious home-cooked meals, well-kept beers & ales and an extensive range of excellent wines & gins.

Our beautiful restaurant and function room, ‘The Old School House’ is a contemporary extension of The Bushel and boasts its own private bar, high-beamed ceilings, original wooden flooring, two open fireplaces and large doors, leading out to our decking area and stunning rose-lined garden. A perfect venue to celebrate a special birthday, anniversary, christening or an intimate wedding reception, with banquet seating for up to 70 guests.
