We stayed for a couple of nights at this pub with rooms and found it ideally situated for visiting all the amenities of Bury St Edmunds. The rooms are first class and full of character with each one in a different style. All the products are locally sourced with hand made mattresses and bespoke furniture. The staff are very friendly... More

Excellent customer service, amazing grounds and out of this world food! Meal sizes were huge and just what we wanted. Children's portions more than adequate. Couldn't have wanted more! Will certainly be visiting again. Really really pleased.

We decided to return back to the Fox Inn after our stay there last year and are pleased that we did. This visit we brought our dog with us who was very happy to be there ( he was made very welcome with lots of treats and attention). Our room was spacious with a lovely well appointed bathroom to make... More

very definitely value for money and very friendly staff. We stayed overnight and ate in the bar. Food was OK, I wouldn't rave about it but the pub and staff more than made up for it. The room was very comfortable

We have been here previously and lunch as delicious, so we decided to return for another lunch. This time was not so good. The staff were slow and obviously in training the man taking our order did not have a pen that worked then a pencil which would not write. Once we ordered the starter came which was not presented...

A country pub in a lovely location - we visited here for a meal after looking at their website. The meals in the restaurant were disappointing, seemed expensive for what was on offer & the presentation was sadly lacking. The waiting staff are very young & this is no problem at all except their lack of experience is very evident.... More

If you are wanting a Holiday Inn, Hilton Group, Radisson etc type hotel then this place is probably not for you. We found it to be a friendly family run hotel that was good value for money. The room we had was comfortable and clean. A nice en-suite with TV and facilities for making a drink. We stayed on a... More
