“Ale and Hearty”

Do the tour and buy the beer! A very interesting tour of this historic brewery and the opportunity to buy from their wide range of beers. A nice bar, too.

“A surprise good value lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

On the way to the theatre I spotted that the canteen was open to everyone - for £3.00 each my friend and I enjoyed the most amazing roast pork! Would certainly go again.

“Fun and Informative Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2012

Don't forget your camera. You can snap some nice pictures of Bury from the roof of the Brewery. Lots of stair climbing is involved on the tour, so wear good walking shoes.

“Pleasantly Surprised!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

We were in Bury St. Edmunds one weekend and we had nothing planned. We visited the Brewery on a whim and we were surprised at how much fun we had on a weekend.

Before you go I would definitely look online to see the hours to ensure you get there on time. It was 9 pounds per person.

The actual tour takes about an hour but the best part is the very end. They let you ay as long as you'd like and drink as much as you want. You will truly enjoy the experience.
