What to say about this place? Playing a melange of grubby, urban tunes that resonate around the groin area, it is a place to miss in Bury St Edmunds.....

Drinks are pretty cheap but the dance floor was very small and aggressive guys. Bouncers were very pushy and rude!

My husband and i go in here most times when we are in town in the mornings,for £3 you can have coffee and a toasted teacake for 2 people it's a bargain.The coffee is good teacakes are hot,the bar staff are all very friendly and it's a quiet oasis in a busy town.

It's pretty much the only place to go after eleven o'clock, and now they've stopped all the proper scum bags going in it's turning into a nice little bar. The chap that owns it is an arrogant, insufferable tool and best avoided, but Mark the bar manager is a star. I'm liking the fact they've spent a few quid doing... More

I have only been here on a night out at the weekend of which I have found it to be quite a grubby place. You stick to the floors a bit from where they are that sticky. I also find the drinks to be quite pricey. It is not a very big place so when it is busy it is... More

Don't get me wrong, this establishment is far from classy but is certainty not a dive! During the day it is a cafe where you can grab a coffee and read the newspaper or watch the tv. Between morning to evening it is often a peaceful and quiet place where the older generation like to go to relax or meet... More

Karooze is the wart on the backside of Bury St. Edmunds and consists of a clientele and staff that have an asbo count greater then their collective IQ. There are plenty of vibrant bars in Bury St Edmunds and its nightlife has a great deal to offer but this is to be avoided at all costs.

There are great places to go in Bury St Edmunds. Interesting, original establishments that strive to innovate and excel. Karooze is the polar opposite, a dreadful place staffed by indifferent stressed out staff (who look like they need a good scrub!) and all swamped by terrible music. I regretted going the moment I stepped through the door and it seemed... More
