St. Andrews Street, Bury St. Edmunds, IP33 3PH


Oakes Barn

Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk.

Your local real ale pub.

Oakes Barn opened in November 2013 as a Free House in Bury St Edmunds serving six real ales and a selection of craft beer and lager, an excellent range of wines, gins, and ciders alongside homemade food. We are community spirited and we embrace our historical links to the medieval town and James Oakes, the historian that we took our name and inspiration from. Our aim was simple, to create a hub for people to meet, socialise and make friends.
