The Rose & Crown was the last pub we visited on a tour of Bury St Edmunds in late October. It's a traditional Greene King pub on the same street as the brewery. The interior is old fashioned and all the better for it. Beware the opening times, as it does close on weekend afternoons. Ales on my visit were Greene King IPA, Abbot & XX Mild, Skinner's Betty Stogs, Exmoor Gold & Timothy Taylor Landlord. I always enjoy their Mild, despite the low ABV.

A very traditional pub close to the Greene King Brewery and the Theatre Royal. A Greene King pub and one with decor firmly in the 80''s but that adds to the charm of this pub. A very pleasant landlord. They usually have three guest beers on as well as the usual GK offerings. Timothy Taylor''s Landlord is often on and they do keep a great pint here. Popular with workers from the nearby GK Brewery so that is a recommendation in itself.

It is friendly and traditional.One of a few GK pubs still selling the superb XX Mild of which the landlord is a firm supporter.The old fasioned jug and bottle is a pleasure to still and apparently does well particularly during the summer barbecue and party season when locals need some extra bottles or even a jug of ale.
Tasty solid lunches.Excellent ham,egg and chips at a good price.

My 3rd and final pub from the 2014 GBG to tick and its this GK pub within a stone's throw of the GK brewery.

The Oakes Barn was very good, The Dove was a cracker and the Rose & Crown is just decent.

It’s an unassuming small old fashioned back street boozer. There are 2 bars with most of the pumps being in the front bar.

6 ales with 3 of the offerings being from GK and the other 3 guests. My choice was Wolf Brewery Dog Star @ 4.4%. A decent enough pint

Pretty quiet even though there’s quite a few punters in, as I say it’s just a decent pub nothing fancy but good for a beer.

Sandwiches were being served and they looked good.

Towards the back of the pub there are a few shelves with books on, all books for 50p and the money going to charity. A nice idea by the pub.

7/10 for me.

Another pub which I always make a point of visiting when in town. Best GK Mild for miles around and the pub is a bit of a "time-warp". Near the brewery and just off the town centre. A couple of bars and what looks like an old "Jug and Bottle". Beers are IPA; Abbot; Mild and guest (Hook Norton Old Hooky on this visit). I got chatting to the landlady and she knew many of the people I worked with in Bury but she was surprised to find I was not a "local" from down the road as she had thought, but actually all the way from Berkshire!
