Menu; Standard pub food - People familiar with the classic "Greene King" menu will not be let down. Service; Waitresses unfortunately very forgetful, followed by a run in with a very rude landlady. We will try again as it is in a very good location, and has a nice atmosphere, but the staff should remember what they are there to... More

Highly recommended for the business traveller and families alike. Service is excellent, the staff really make you feel at home. Although part of a large group (Greene King), the bar is full of character and atmosphere, and the food of excellent quality and value.

Needed a room for an overnight in Bury St Edmunds and couldn't have been happier with my choice. The staff at The Fox were friendly and attentive, the atmosphere in the bar was welcoming and relaxed, and the room was finished to a very good standard. Very clean, very comfortable, and a nice range of options for breakfast. Thoroughly recommended.

The food was hot and tasty and little extras were provided on our first visit to enhance our meal. This venue has improved dramatically over the last couple of years and has become a... More
