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!
drink and service excellent the staff brilliant the food was good perhaps needed more attention to detail i.e. the york pud was dry the risotto had cold spots ! so just little tweak here and there otherwise we love the Cannon its mostly better than ever!
We had a table for 15 and there were no mistakes with the food orders, and everything arrived promptly. There’s always a great atmosphere there.
The food was excellent as was the service. Great choice of drinks too. Would highly recommend and hope to return soon.
Good choice of ales at reasonable prices - Sunday roast very tasty but only one small slice of meat on small plate & only 2 on large dish I thought was very poor value
Had another excellent meal and fine beer(s) at the Cannon. I appreciate your continued and consistent attention to detail with both service and food. Looking forward to my next visit.
Lovely meal and helpful staff.
Great place for food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere, with the option of a guided tour of the brewery, if you are interested in that sort of thing..The staff and the management were very helpful and looked after us all evening, Definitely worth going if you like a traditional pub experience.
Hello! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with you on Friday night, absolutely fantastic service and you were all so lovely and fun it really helped make the night great for us. The beer is always great which is always pleasing. Would really like to see home made chips in a gastro pub as that makes a big difference.Looking forward to seeing you all again soon! xx
Had a large party of 30, they made it very easy. Thanks so much for a wonderful time!
Friendly stuff, interesting menu, good beer, quirky eating alongside the brewing vats.
Went for a Sunday dinner with family. Lovely food and excellent beer selection.
Beef was tough. Veg were very good. Sweet was banoffe Eaton mess What a rip off. Meringue nest with cream and bananas on top. OVER priced.
Food, drink and service were excellent. The brewery was very quiet which although peaceful was a bit flat. It was a Monday lunchtime so I expect it will be much more lively during the week. Many thanks
The bathroom was very dirty and when mentioned in the morning to staff was told they are aware- but clearly did nothing to rectify our annoyance and obviously didn’t clean it prior to us arriving! Over priced!!!
Really tasty good pub grub with own micro brewery The staff were all really helpful and friendly with organising a special table for my brother-in-law’s birthday My disabled son and toddler were made to feel very welcome Thank you for a lovely lunch
Lovely staff and good food thank you
Absolutely perfect! Food was delicious. Service impeccable. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. A great experience. Highly recommended.
Lovely food and good service! Would defiantly come back.
Very enjoyable evening, wil definitely be returning
Very friendly and helpful staff. Got a couple of cushions for one of our group who had a bad back and also supplied us with some playing cards. We were also allowed to taste the beers before buying. All in all, excellent service.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and the waitress was so accommodating as we were with elderly parents who weren't able to rush anything. Thank you.
Good beer, complimentary bottle in room very nice touch
Great food and service
Lovely food and very friendly staff.
