About The Bush Hotel


The Bush is a historic and independent hotel that has welcomed guests since 1618. Embracing a blend of timeless tradition and contemporary design, The Bush offers a distinctive space where the charm of its centuries old history meets modern comforts. Found in the heart of Farnham's historic town centre, yet secluded within its own private gardens, The Bush provides a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the nearby high street. This family run venue is decked with its original features, inviting fires, and 94 comfortable bedrooms, priding itself on offering a welcoming experience to all guests.

The Bush has direct train links to London, plenty of cycling and walking routes to the Surrey Hills, and easy access to major roadways, making it a great choice. From intimate gatherings to grand celebrations, The Bush offers a range of menus and spaces tailored to suit every occasion. If you are hunting for a great private dining spot in the area, you should definitely consider this gem. Everything about your event will be tailored to your needs, and your dedicated event coordinator will help you plan your event to your needs and taste. There are three event spaces within the hotel that can be used for private dining, with two in the main hotel and one located in the newly refurbished Redgrave rooms event space.

The team can accommodate anything up to 150 guests in various spots. Every kind of diner is well catered for at The Bush, whether you like a health conscious menu or something indulgent, the team will work with you to create something that is just right for you, ensuring that your event has food as incredible as surroundings.

Sunday Lunch JULY, 2024

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the staff at The Bush Hotel for making my parents-in-law's wedding anniversary such a lovely occasion.  Your suggestion of the private room was perfect, and the meal was enjoyed by everyone. I don't think we could have found anywhere nicer to have held the occasion. Many thanks to you and the team for making us feel so welcome


Pre Wedding Afternoon TeaJULY, 2024

To a man it received full marks and high praise, and what more could a host ask for??My only regret is that I was not there to sample the wares!! We are deeply grateful to the staff and management of Bush Hotel for treating our guests with utmost courtesy,and leaving them with wonderful memories to take back!

Friendly and welcoming..MAY, 2024

I recently attended a private event at the Bush Hotel in Farnham. The range and quality of the afternoon tea was excellent and it was served in an informal way that allowed guests to serve themselves with ease. The staff were all friendly, attentive and generally approachable and welcoming. All in all it was an enjoyable and memorable experience. We hope to return very soon Thanks again and best wishes
