This was our final pub of the night and another brewpub. The brewing equipment is near the entrance at the side of the bar. Staff are very professional and know their stuff. This is an old building. But the interior feels very clinical and lacks atmosphere. There is accommodation just across the courtyard. Ales from Old Cannon were Best Bitter, Gunner's Daughter & Rusty Gun. I wasn't overly impressed with my Gunner's Daughter. Guest ales were Woodfordes Reedlighter & Adnams Broadside.

The Old Cannon brewery and pub is a short walk from town heading back towards the station in a street of terraced houses giving it a real back street local feel.

Open plan inside with the 2 silver mush tuns in full view & wooden flooring throughout.

On my visit there were 3 of their own ales across the pumps, my choice of Gunners Daughter @ 5.5% was excellent, their other ales on were Best Bitter and Black Pig, apparently the Black Pig was also very good.

Food served and was being enjoyed by 3 locals who along with my group of 6 were the only punters in.

We stayed for nearly 2 hours enjoying our beers and having a crack before leaving for the football. This is the sort of pub that I use the GBG for as I wouldn’t have found it otherwise being away from the town and not exactly on the walk from the station.

Scores highly from me for the quality of the ales and the pub itself.

Stayed here for a couple of nights, the room was excellent, the breakfast good but a bit on the small side, the food in the evening was good. The bar itself lacks atmosphere, it is all very stainless steel and srcubbed tables, the staff very friendly and the beer very good both Old Cannon and 2 guest ales. Nearly a very good pub, just need to sort out the interior design to get some warmth in to it. But a joy to go to Bury St Edmunds and not drink Greene King!

A seemingly worthwhile venture with an on-site brewery, meals and rooms. Tidy-looking complex, with a clean and bright interior. Our own experience was that the food could be improved a bit, yet was still on the good side of adequate and the Gunners Daughter ale was very moreish. Excellent service too. The ales are available in bottle conditioned form.

Beer was excellent but does tend to feel a bit clinical (maybe because the brewhouse is in the bar) and a bit more bistro like than publike.
