user reviews of Oakes Barn, Bury St Edmonds

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

On a cold late-October weekend afternoon, we ended up sitting outside here. Inside was just too packed and justifiably so. This is a good pub. Ales were Oakham JHB & Black Hole Bitter, Adnams Bitter, Lacon's Phantom & Mighty Oak Due South & English Oak. Ciders were Abrahalls AM, Millwhites Rum Cask, Weston's Flat Tyre & Hand Brake & Dudda's Tun Apricot Cider & Cheery Old Dudda. Probably the best pub in Bury St Edmunds. An 8/10 from me.

Mid December and it’s a football trip to Bury St Edmunds, this was my 2nd visit to Bury in 2015 and my 2nd visit to this privately owned new build pub.

6 of us arrived at 12.15 and there were just a few other punters in then it got busy around 12.30pm with locals before being swamped by other Dulwich Hamlet fans from 1pm.

6 ales and 1 real cider on the hand pumps, I had several pints of Woodforde's Norfolk Nog @ 4.6% and every pint was very decent.

I do like the Oakes Barn on both of my visits here the bar staff are friendly and there’s a nice atmosphere here, coupled with the good range of well kept ales.

A must visit when in Bury.

This review is from my visit to Bury St Edmunds in February 2015

With 3 pubs on my list this is the first pub of the day in Bury on a dull weather looking day. 11.30am and it's quiet at the new build Oakes Barn free house.

2 friendly barmaids greet us as we enter and scan the 6 ales on the bar across the 6 hand pumps while there’s another one for real cider.

My choice's were Cliff Quay Breweries Sea Dog @ 5.5% and Panther Brewery Golden Panther @ 3.7%. Both very good pints and are kept well.

There is 1 large room with wooden beams and tables around the outside. The seating / smoking area to the side of the pub as you enter has a small bit of cover and I understand they are about to open a beer garden.

Very nice and friendly staff, good ales, good choice and a good starting point.

A decent pub located near the town centre with competitively priced beers. Always a decent selection with Woodfordes Wherry and Crouch Vale Brewers Gold on and four guest ales. Also has a couple of lagers on as well.
