About The Old Cannon Brewery

Our kitchen has a great reputation for serving food that’s the ‘bounty of the county’ all of which has been freshly prepared by our highly experienced kitchen team.

Our brasserie menu, Cannon Fodder changes with the seasons and has starters and main dishes for all tastes and appetites. For those with a smaller appetite, many of the most popular main courses are offered as a light main too.

Some of our dishes are made with our own ales: beer battered fish and our famous Gunner’s Daughter sausages!

For busy business types looking for a quick option at lunchtimes, we offer bar snacks including home baked rolls with mouth watering fillings.

There’s always a choice for vegetarians and, as all the food is prepared from scratch, we can usually adapt dishes for special dietary requirements too.

After enjoying your lunch or dinner you are still ready for more food, our home made puddings or British cheeseboard are definitely worth saving space for. If puddings are not your thing, then our fabulous range of locally produced Ices are a must. The Manor Farm Creamery in Thurston is where we source a fantastic range of Ices from Criterion Ices. And then there’s the deliciously flavoursome Alder Tree fruit cream ices – all hand made on a local fruit farm in Needham Market.

Our Specials above the fireplace change frequently, so there’s always something to suit your taste buds!

We held a celebration here for 24 people. The pub provided the perfect surroundings for a relaxed and happy event. The food was very good and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Just the right balance between a planned but relaxed event. A big thank you to Hannah and all the team.

Very kind Staff as we were 15 minutes late (first visit and very hard to find). Bit shocked at prices of food but we were mainly there for the great selection of real ales. Way too many people standing at the bar once served, made it so difficult to get served ourselves.

Family meal celebrating birthday, first visit and thoroughly impressed with flexibility of the kitchen when changes were requested to meals. Table service was first rate too, friendly, polite and attentive.

Very friendly staff - so helpful. Good range of dishes on the menu, and beautifully presented and so well cooked; you do the best side dishes ever - salad, seasonal veg, sweet potato fries etc. Lovely beers, of course and a good Adnams white wine. Thanks for a lovely evening.

This was our first visit to The Old Cannon as we were looking for a decent gastro pub that remains open on Mondays (so few do these days). We had a lovely meal and sampled their home brew beer; both were fantastic. We will be back for a brewery tour soon I hope.
