Longtime Milk District pub, Bull and Bush (Facebook | Website), has been purchased by the operators of Sportstown, just next door, for $415,000, according to the Orange County Property Appraiser.

The shop opened in 1987 at 2408 E. Robinson Street [GMap] when the owner, former dental technician Susan Altman, gave up on a life of making false teeth and decided to get into the English pub game instead. The name is a nod to the T.G. Lee Dairy plant across the street and it is one of the smallest watering holes in the city at just 1,500 SF, and has been home to one of the city’s longest-running comedy nights, Shit Sandwich Comedy Showcase.

According to new co-owner Aaron Dudek, the comedy nights and the resident Dart League will continue as planned, as well as some new programming coming soon, including English football screenings. Dudek shared that they will be adding some new televisions to the bar in the near future, but that that would likely be the extent of their changes.

“We didn’t want to change much and luckily we don’t have to since it’s in great shape. We’ll add the TVs for English football events and just keep it as-is. There were only two employees and luckily they’re both staying, so it’s pretty much business as usual.”


Dudek co-owns the pub with Jason Anderson, and the two also own and operate Sportstown and Burton’s Thornton Park, and recently sold The Lodge and The Woods.
