I was not impressed with the food at all. I ordered the salmon in a bed of creamy cabbage with bacon and cockles.... what I got was salmon in a bowl of pure cream with a few tiny pieces of cabbage. No bacon and no cockles. I could only eat the salmon (the bits I could keep out of the... More

We took my mother-in-law to the Old Cannon Brewery restaurant for dinner and were not disappointed. The food is brought out to you very quickly and is really tasty and well-presented. The staff are smiling and very helpful; their recommendations were spot on, as well. The atmosphere is homey and friendly while still being tasteful. As the restaurant is attached... More

average food but expensive prices. Sunday roast - potatoes had a cooked a few days ago and recooked again taste, veg messy looking on plate. 1 dessert cost over £8!!! A std slice of cheesecake which I asked for a single scoop of ice cream with, small scoop charged £2.50 for, outrageous. Would I go back? No.

The Cannon is a 5 minute walk from the centre of Bury St Edmunds. The food menu is good and the local beer is also. well worth a sit for a friendly pub.

Awesome eggs Benedict! It's always good and I come here on every day off to get my fix! Parking is a bit of a challenge; just get there before nine and you'll be fine.

Had a lovely meal here with family and friends. Service here is excellent and professional. Food was very nice, you can pretty much have any dish on the menu as a starter or a main. They have a specials board as well. This venue brews beer 🍻 and has some fermentation equipment, and I suspect the clean earns there money!... More

Not knowing Bury St Edmunds we'd asked for a recommendation for somewhere to dine at lunchtime and One Cannon Brewery was suggested. It was good that food was still being served at 2.15 pm, when we arrived. A reasonable Rioja is served by the glass. If I were a beer drinker I'm sure that the ales produced on site would... More

Had a Roast here the other Sunday. Service was all over the place. Plates cold so the food went cold too quickly. No one around to ask if everything was ok. Poor quality and not a lot there! Veg isn't expensive so a few more on the plate wouldn't go a miss!

The Old Cannon is a Brewery, Bar, Brasserie and Bed & Breakfast.Our brasserie menu (Cannon Fodder) changes with the seasons and has starters and main dishes for all tastes and appetites and, if you are still ready for more, our puddings and British cheeseboard are definitely worth saving space for. There are at least three daily changing specials. For those with a smaller appetite, many of the most popular main courses are offered as a light main too.
