Working lunch, love the Canon for the past 20 years.......oh dear what has happened? Staff that are lacking in knowledge of the drinks, an empty bar, an empty restaurant and lazy pub grub. Dry ham hock with congealed cooked cheese in a semi nice bun,...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...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...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.

Description
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.
