Pubs in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk*
The place to go for a lazy afternoon, pub quiz or last call
You can tell us more about Bury St Edmunds.
- The Mason's Arms is THE place to eat in town. The eccentric chef is an absolute genius and you can get the most fantastic roasts on a Sunday
- Dog and partridge, gets busy in the holidays, the masons is good for a quite drink. avoid the queens head like the plague. If you are 12 pot black may not realise due to selective sight.
- No pubs worth going in unless you fancy peeling the daily locals off the bar before you order. Grapes is good if you like 30 something tosspots doing nothing all day.
- The Black boy(old goth/greb hang out, cheap pool I can find), Dog & Partridge nice interior, Grapes(friendly atmosphere, good range and choice on juke box)
- black boy, grapes, priors (occasionaly) are probably the best for greebs.
- The grapes for fab music and atmosphere.
Greengage or linden tree for food.
black boy for tradtional pub experience
D and P is good, loads of students though,
queens head had the BEST atmosphere on a busy night, great jukebox.
- D&P that's all i'm saying! lol
- The new look Moreton Hall is rather trendy. The Queens is the place to go if you want to see EVERYONE you went to school with. Forget Karooze. Only no-brain pretentious socialites as shallow as the baby pool go there.
- Priors Inn, The Grapes. The Nutshell is the smallest pub in Britain!
- The Grapes is truly abysmal, with some of the rudest, obnoxious and miserable stff. as for the bad points....
- Kings Arms, very dull. Prozac on draft might enliven the place. Some, noyt all bar staff very surly. Landlord particularly sourfaced
- Lot's of good ones if you are passing thru but to repeat visits it can get a little mind numbing. Also there are bouncers on the doors on the weekend due to the behaviour of the locals. They will of course die out with the coming generations. I moved to east London where we have gun crime but you can have a pint in peace any night of the week, I've never had any trouble in boozers in Bethnal Green. Bury however is different matter. Towns suck in genenral.
- Karooze has to be in the top 2 bars in town with friendly bar staff a quality interior this place is rocking at the weekends.With local dj's playing everything from r/b hip-hop funk/soul and some quality house+u.s garage at the weekends.music played tue-sun check it out
- Kings arms is the best im afraid!They'll serve you tequila until you cant even say it anymore!
- The Nutshell. The smallest pub in Britain. The smallest minds in Britain. Avoid like the plague. The Black Boy. Small but nice. Friendly and a wicked pint of Greene King. The Angel. Pretentious and over-priced hotel (the breakfast is shite) but the bar is OK. Good place to meet expense account Americans and put them in their place.
The Fox. Top pub. Good, simple local's pub. The best pub I found in Bury.
- just like to say that BSE happens to have a lot more variety and up to date drinks then here in Canada, dispite it being behind in other things
- all pretty much the same, rock, grungy and gothy types might like the grapes. queens head is busy with a games room out the back. ace!
- Dog and Partridge, the stepping stone for everyones drinking career.
- Bury has good pubs admittedly! Queens Head & D&P have a great atmosphere.
- D'n'P is full of up there own arse students were not all like that. The Queens definetly though good food good drink good crowd and good atmosphere. Many a drunken night thank you Don
- Queens and D and P
- Give the grapes a miss if you're not a goth, give the D&P a miss if you don't like mixing with students, don't bother with the wolf. The relaxing Lindon tree is my personal favorite, a good mix of folk and the food is top class. Visit the D&P on a Wednesday, the pub quiz is always good for a laugh.
- Six bells- it's actully in Horringer (about a mile out) but does lush food.
Three kings- in fornam. again, foods great.
- I went in the nutshell the other night and it was empty, a huge dissappointment I can tell you.
- Pubs aren't fab either, although The Queens Head, Kings Arms and a visit to "Whatever" is in order!
- The Grapes does a wicked reggae night once a month. the D&P is THE student pub, but it does get very busy during the holidays. The Wolf turns into a meat market at the weekends and although the drinks can be cheap, you should go to the D&P.
- Personally I recommend the Queen's Head for the under 30's who like atmosphere, the Dog and Partridge is an excellent pub filled with beautiful people, and goths, crusties, and ANY music fan will love the Grapes. All in the centre of Bury!
- the wolf is practically giving drinks away but apparently there are "ladies of the night" upstairs, depends if you like that kind of thing
- DandP, DandP, DandP. Even though it fills up with skanky students at holiday times.
- The Dog and Partridge is where all the local students go, its always packed. There's also The Wolf, and the Grapes, but you might get your face glassed in there! Don't go in The Black Boy, it's an old mans pub.
- The Grapes used to be ace before it installed CCTV. The Cupola had its moments, as did the Masons and the Dog and Partridge. Fleetwoods was indeed one of the best, especially when it ran roots nights. These days, when I return to Bury, I end up at the Queen's Head.
- The Nut Shell is the smallest pub in England and is located in the heart of the town, near the Abbey Gardens.
- The most popular pub with students age ??? is the Dog and Partridge... it is located across from Guildhall Feofoment School (which I attended in my youth).
- How dare you? - The Dog and Partridge is my favourite pub. ???? year olds indeed!
- Fleetwood's was by far the best pub, until it closed in October 95. (re-opening early 96)
Fleetwoods did reopen in the summer of 96, but with a new name - The Office. It's about as good as it ever was, once the novelty of going to a pub that is upstairs above a shop wears off, it's pretty crap!
With regards to Fleetwoods, which closed Oct 95: it opened again around April '96 with new owners and re-named 'The Office'. However it closed again in Jan 97.
