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!

Atmosphere was not as good as usual as there were very few people in due to the early hour.

Food and beer were excellent, as was the attentive and friendly service. We were surprised to find the place empty (apart from the 2 of us) on a Friday lunchtime. So it did lack atmosphere unfortunately.

Beer was excellent. No atmosphere as there were few customers. This might be normal for lunch time . Suggest a lunch fixed price menu might attract customers. Good main course but lemon Bakewell tart dessert was broken in two pieces.and should not have been presented. Staff were efficient and pleasant.

Booked for lunch with friends (after having had much better food last time we came). Must say we were disappointed with the food yesterday. Sunday lunch was average and the roast potatoes were hard, and had an old oil taste with no crisp to them. We ordered two steak and kidney pies and were told you'd run out so chose the chicken pie instead. When they were served there was one steak and kidney! The worst thing was that our friends were treating us and they ended up paying for what we thought was an average meal at best.

Hi, this was the second time I brought guests from overseas into your restaurant for a business dinner. They thought the whole atmosphere, decor was superb, as was the food and the service. I will book up soon to bring my family in as the food was lovely. Thank you Wayne
