Nestling within the historic grid and conservation area; the Fox Inn and Restaurant is situated beside the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds. The Fox is within 2 minutes walk of The Abbey Gardens and Bury St Edmunds Cathedral and the town centre with its mix of national brands and an array of individual independent shops offer a wide range of choice. Believed to be the oldest Inn in the town; the Fox escaped the ravages of the great fire in Bury of 1608 and has served as a hostelry since it was built in the 15th century; when it was just outside the old East Gate of the town; now depicted only by a sign to the front of the building.

All rooms feature bespoke granite topped Suffolk oak furniture; hand made beds from Norfolk with pocket sprung mattresses from Suffolk; flat screen TV and WiFi. Complimentary natural French toiletries; Egyptian cotton towels; safe (which is wide enough for most laptops); hairdryer; iron & ironing board.
