Fodor's Expert Review The Old Cannon Brewery

86 Cannon St., Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 1JR, England

This delightful old inn near the Bury St. Edmunds train station has a handful of bedrooms in its converted Victorian brewhouse. The accommodations aren't lavish, but rooms are comfortable and modern, with private bathrooms and free Wi-Fi. The pub serves tasty, predominantly British food (with a few international twists, such as Turkish kebabs and Czech goulash). True to the name the Old Brewery still makes its own beer—a great rarity in these days of brewery-owned chain pubs. The beer also goes into the batter for their fish-and-chips. How's that for holding up tradition?
