BUSHEL

Location:- Rookery, corner of Drapers Row and Market Street


Brewery or Owner:-- Greene,King



Traditionally regarded as the oldest inn in Newmarket, although probably a close run thing with the Horseshoes. Reputedly has the remains of a cock fighting pit in the cellar. Central in the Rookery area, more correctly the Dukeries, an area built for the nobility to stay when racing in Newmarket. The Rookery was actually to the right of the building, on a line from the Bull to New Astley Club. It is the sole survivor of the 22 hostelries listed in this area in 1757. Original address was Drapery Row, at the junction of Market Street and Eagle Lane..
