Aqualung . left this review about The Brewery Tap

The Mauldon's Brewery Tap is a detached pub just off the main centre of Sudbury. Inside it's a single L shaped room with wooden floors and a slightly raised area at the back that had an obstructed dart board and a covered bar billiard table. It was quiet on my midday Thursday visit.
There are six hand pump which had one unused, Robinson's Wizaard and four Mauldon beers. I missed the fact that there were a few other beers served on gravity from the back. I went for the Mauldon's Blackberry Porter (£3.10) which was in good nick.
This one is well worth a look and is GBG 2017 listed.

I L left this review about The Brewery Tap

A white washed pub on the edge of the centre of town and about 7 - 8 minute walk from the railway station, this is a must visit pub if you like Mauldon brewery pub. There were 9 ales available on our visit with most being from Mauldons but a number from other small breweries including one from the Fat Cat brewery in Norwich. Inside the pub insists of an L shaped public area with oodeen floor boards throughout and a pool table on the upper area. Basic food is served but there are signs up saying you can bring your own takeaway in and they will provide the cutlery and crockery.

On handpump, Mauldons Micawber Mild, Moletrap, Silver Adder, Black Adder, Suffolk Pride, Mid-Summer Gold, also, on gravity (tap room visible thru small window beyond bar), White Adder, Pride, Bombardier, & RCH PG Steam. Modern, minimalist feel on entry with bare-board floor to dark wood bar & a few ‘tall' tables, but turn left to a mix of seating, various table sizes, solid wood chairs & nice free standing settles. Beyond the bar, the rear area is furnished with a couple of nice large pine tables served by bench settles, there is a dartboard rear right and adjacent bar-billiards table (covered, on our visit). Even here, though, despite the odd photo of the old locale, the white walls above light painted-wood panelling feel a little stark & naked, this made more obvious with the windows all around the L-shaped pub providing so much light – I had to think that more wall decoration and, maybe, hops adorning the whitewashed beams around the bar, would lend a softer, lived-in, homely effect. Outside a paved courtyard beer garden had new picnic sets, part covered by giant umbrella. I loved the blackboard at the bar offering filled rolls (£1.50), pork pies (£2), saltbeef or hot-gammon baps (£3), ploughmans (£5), how often we want such an easy fix, & how rarely it is found! Otherwise, cutlery is offered for bought-in take-aways and menus for the local ‘Kohinoor' are available on window-sill. The resident long-haired german shepherd has a bear-like appearance, but is very friendly. It seems churlish, given the good ale line-up, to complain about restricted choice, but the pub web-site was still announcing a 35-beer festival 17-21Jun even though it had, apparently been cancelled 5 weeks previously. I wish the incumbents well with their new-born twins, but the guv stating that ‘I had more important things on my mind' & ‘the website is the brewery's responsibility' did not exactly douse the flames of frustration after making a specific journey from London.

WARNING! The advertised beer festival (17-21Jun) is not now happening.
