Beautiful beer garden with great choice of ales. The brewery is well kept with friendly staff. Good environment for friends or family. Ale drinkers will be in their element!

I have lunch about once every three weeks at the Cannon, and, under its new Manager there is no doubt that it has improved significantly, from being just another pub to becoming something of a gastropub. I always judge places by the soup available, and...More

Hi, Just seen the question and a bit late answering but they do have food for a vegetarian and best checking when going on website or ring. My partner is a vegetarian and always enjoyed the food there.

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.
