Visited on 4th June 2017. Large brewpub in a nice residential square around 10 mins from the station. Pretty smart interior, very light with the brew kit features, there a focus on dining and seemed popular with the locals. Beer range was decent enough with a good mix of real ale including 4 of their own. A tasting flight is offered. Service was decent, prices good and quality of beer decent. Not a bad venue.

Bright and convivial brewpub in town. Smart café/bistro look as opposed to well-worn pub or hipster paradise. The beer is solid - not exciting mind, but solid - although the selection is pretty low. Three Old Cannon beers (two of which I’d had before) sit beside Adnams Southwold and Wherry. Some of the keg choices - Köstritser Kellerbier and Calvor’s 3.8 lager - are interesting if not imminently tickable. I’m not sure why more of the beers aren’t available, especially in bottle form: you can buy gift sets but I didn’t see any chilled. It feels a bit like brewing beer is secondary to the operation as opposed to the main focus, which is a shame although the business model seems to be working.

Brew their own beer on the premises , but at times during day, you feel food is the main priority. The beer is great

Long established brewpub with decent beers. The brewing kit is right in the pub. Pleasant pub with an open, airy feel. Can be quite food-oruiented at certain times but always OK for just a drink. Expect to find three Old Cannon beers, Adnams Bitter and three or so guests. Certainly worth a visit, if not a detour.

Nice brewpub just out of the town centre. Good selection of Old Cannon beers and great food in cosy surroundings. Definitely worth a look.

One of the best three bars in town and a short walk from the Bury Beerhouse, visit them both.

Great local, neighborhood brewery known for its ale and food. It is just off the beaten path but offers much more than other places. No TV or loud music; just a good place for a pint and some conversation. Gunners Daughter, Best Bitter top Ales along with 4 other regulars and one seasonal (St Edmunds Head). Good guest ales can be found here as well as a selection of wines.
