Then I found The One Bull, a pub in the historic heart of Bury St Edmunds, which offers fresh, seasonal food, award-winning wine and ale brewed at a nearby craft brewery.

I found everything I could possibly want in a gastropub..."

"Sitting with a plate of culinary delights resembling fine dining, you have to pinch yourself you're sitting in what was a spit-and-sawdust ale tavern frequented by monks of Bury St Edmunds' Abbey.
