Refit looks great - modern & very classy, big change to the dump it was. Pity it's still Greene King.

There's nothing wrong with Greene King, Bury St Edmund's finest. If it wasn't for them, many decent pubs would have gone to the wall, and they brew good beer. For example...

The best GK pubs are ones that hide the fact that they are GK, retain some sense of individuality and relegate 1 GK beer to the end of the bar. I can think of a few great GK pubs (including the one linked above) but most are medicore.

The Laughing Fish is the exception that proves the general rule that Greene King pubs are terrible.
As for their beers - Ferret are you having me on? It's their sort of horrible tasteless dreck that gives British beer a bad name.

Don't forget the Black Horse, whose Black Horse Bitter is apparently GK IPA. I'm an expert in drinking English bitter, and I can assure you that IPA is as drinkable as Harvey's Best, without being quite as brilliant. It's all a matter of opinion.

I'm a bitter drinker too. And GK's range is the worst example of the genre (closely followed by Bombardier etc.). I'm not alone in that opinion; on any beer review website it gets consistenly awful rankings. Not fit to be mentioned in the same sentence as Harvey's, Timmy Taylors, Fullers, Hook Norton, Tribute etc.

Not according to the barman that I asked, or according to my taste buds. It's good but it's not Harvey's Best

You can't really be a local beer drinker if you can't tell the difference between Best and GK IPA anyway.

Funny thing is though, Harvey's isn't a great beer.
May be better than gk, but there are far better local breweries.
