Bury St Edmunds Dove
Real Ale is available here
68 Hospital Rd, IP33 3JU
This early Victorian backstreet community freehouse is located just five minutes from the town centre. The Dove has six hand pumps with more jugged ale direct from the cellar. There is also a good selection of real ciders. A twice winner of CAMRA Regional Pub of the Year, it is traditional and basic, just how pubs used to be - no lager, TV's, pool or gaming machines. The staff here are very knowledgeable about their ever-changing range of local ales.
Don't be put off by the Greene King signage, this is a freehouse with an excellent range of well-kept ales.
