I occasionally have to visit Bury St Edmunds for work. I have stayed at the Highwaymans twice and will have no hesitation in booking again. The Highwaymans is great value for money, the owners friendly and the service excellent. The rooms are large and clean (great shower) and the the breakfast good with lots of choice. And then there is... More

My family and I recently hosted a wake here for after my mother's funeral. The location was ideal as it was close to the A14 and only a few miles from the West Suffolk Crematorium. Juliet was wonderful handling all our wishes with efficiency and understanding. The Highwayman's provided a private venue in beautiful surroundings. The food was excellent and... More

Yes, I've stayed here a few times, whilst working nearby. Luckily, it's a good place to stay because there's little else about without travelling towards east to Bury St Edmonds or west to Newmarket. Juliet & Adam provide a pleasant welcome & are two of life's nice people - clearly committed to proving just what they think visitors will appreciate.... More

I was recently at an event hosted in the Gallery Highwaymans and was throughly impressed. The sense of arrival somewhere very special, is apparent as you drive up the road, and ease of parking make it stress free. I have been here for exhibitions and events before, but this was beautifully catered, with an excellent sit down meal. It would... More

Our trip couldn't have been any better. Just the remote getaway we needed. The owners were there to greet us with their 3 lovely golden retrievers. The room was massive, clean and very cosy. The whole place was amazing and swamped in history. We were made to feel very welcome and catered for perfectly!

Highwayman's owners recently kindly sponsored a night in their lovely b&b as a prize for the Risby Primary School fund raising ball. We were fortunate to win the draw and elected to use the prize close to my wife's birthday. On hearing about the occasion Juliet suggested we could invite a few friends for a small celebration as we live... More
