Going out for a Roast now days has been rather disheartening of late. Pleased I booked at The Old Cannon. We were all extremely happy having a fresh plate of food. Meat was delicious and so were the Roast Potatoes and Vegetables. Lovely atmosphere. Service was really good. Only one thing, wait for the customers to be seated first before... More

We visit this gastropub as much as possible. The food is always good with different specials on the board. They brew their own beer and use it to cook with. You'll need to book at the weekends especially Sunday lunch and don't forget to ask about the loyalty card.

Popped in for Sunday roast and the place was absolutely buzzing with a very relaxed atmosphere, everyone seeming to be having a great time. Wait would be about 10 minutes for a table, so we sat at the bar and sampled a couple of the excellent home brewed beers. Ordered one each of the 2 roasts on offer (sirloin of... More

I love this place. It's very local and friendly. The decor inside is really pretty and it's a relaxing place. It is small and it's not exactly the pub for a very large group of mingling drinking people out on a Saturday night. It's more chill and has a totally different vibe than say The Grapes or Gym Bar. It's... More

Booked a valentine meal, really looking forward to a visit to The Cannon Brewery. What a disappointment....truly awful food, such a shame. Was told by friend they had been at the weekend and their food was inedible...come on cannon, we have always loved and supported you but im not sure we will be back anytime soon!

This is a one off in the town, a brewery in the bar. Good pub food , great beer. Reasonable prices and great atmosphere, if a little noisy when full.

We had heard about this restaurant several times but never been, so to celebrate a birthday we popped in to try it out. It was very busy when we arrived with a tour which was ongoing, thankfully we were not on the table by the door!! We were taken to our table, not long after our order taken. One of... More

That's what we wanted and boy what a memorable visit. It is a light but not too light with 2 shining brewing vessels next to the bar and all of the other brewing equipment is on display on a mezzanine floor. The Beer was good but the fish and chips were excellent. Very crispy battered cod with next to no... More

Four of us had a great lunch here recently. The décor and ambience is good - the young team friendly and efficient. We were given a good window table and issued with menus at once. Food is not cheap but quality and presentation excellent - cod with crispy topping on wilted kale and a side or (proper) chips; roll filled... More

The Old Cannon is a Brewery, Bar, Brasserie and Bed & Breakfast.Our brasserie menu (Cannon Fodder) changes with the seasons and has starters and main dishes for all tastes and appetites and, if you are still ready for more, our puddings and British cheeseboard are definitely worth saving space for. There are at least three daily changing specials. For those with a smaller appetite, many of the most popular main courses are offered as a light main too.
