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!

Toilets need updating as does the Dyson hand dryer. Food, restaurant and staff were faultless but toilets really need some attention.

Our meal was an anniversary meal, and from the moment we walked in the door, we were looked after. The food (we both had the Gunners Sausages / Colcannon & Apple Pie / Custard) was excellent, with enough of everything to fill us right up. The whole evening was something that didn't have anything to worry about, so I have no problem in recommending the 'OC' to anyone who wants a tasty, friendly meal in a lovely place.

I came with my husband and his elderly grandmother. We were greeted at the door by a lovely and enthusiastic young lady, she took us straight to our table. We didn't feel rushed at all and the good was delicious. We will definitely be back again!!

Our waitress was fantastic. I really hope she did the chicken joke for the mushroom soup with other diners!!! Had a great evening and would quite happily come back. Excellent selection of drinks, very enjoyable food.

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

Lovely evening - just a little disappointed that there was no pure fish on the mains menu except for fish and chips nor on the Specials Board, as we have eaten some great fish here in the past, and we don't eat meat, so are more restricted - however, what we had was very good - except for the fishcake - beautifully presented and greens/tomato salsa perfect - but it did not taste of fish - I hoped for some flakes of salmon/haddock - very bland. You excel on the fish and chips, though - it cannot be bettered - brill!

stopped in for a quick burger and a pint, enjoyed a flight of ales (the best bitter was the favourite), food was very good especially the sweet potato fries and to top it all, prompt and friendly service. Great stuff, keep up the good work!
