The Fox Inn, Newbourne

Imagine a chocolate box style village pub, beaming with pinkness with a rainbow of flowers around the door.

You have just painted an image of the Fox at Newbourne. The pub is a wonderful 16th century building set in pretty grounds with a secluded rose garden and well stocked pond.

The Fox offers fine food with typical dishes on the menu including classic fritto misto, seabass fillets, Shepherd’s pie, “This Little Piggy” and our famous seafood gratin. All of this can be washed down by perfectly conditioned ales such as Adnams Southwold, St. Austell Tribute, Woodfordes Wherry, as well as a great selection of wines.

The fox is at the center of the Newbourne community who always provide an enthusiastic welcome. Come and enjoy one of Suffolk’s best kept secrets.

Camra Good Beer Guide

The Fox is proud to  among the entries in the good beer guide for the 5th year running. Only pubs serving a consistently high standard of real ale are considered for inclusion, and with real ale recently soaring in popularity its a real achievement to be acknowledged. With Four hand pumps constantly serving a wide variety of ales from around the country it keeps a good turn over which reflects in the quality.

“Great Sunday Lunch”

We often have lunch at the Newbourne Fox but hadn’t been on a Sunday before today. We both had the roasts – chicken and beef – and they were excellent. If only we lived in Newbourne we would never cook again! Thank you for making this Sunday extra special

“Lovely busy Pub/Restaurant”

Have been here many times and always a pleasure. Food is good and ambience is friendly. Staff always friendly and even if you have not booked make every effort to find you a table.

“Top Quality Pub”

What a lovely place! A picturesque pub in a pretty village setting offering fabulous food with a happy and efficient service! First visit today, for Sunday lunch, dropped in at beginning of walk to book a table, lucky we did as busy later. The roasts looked amazing but we both had rare ribeye steak, was cooked to perfection, no quibbles about having sweet potato chips instead of potato chips and served with mushrooms and tomatoes, the best we’ve had for a long time!.

“Fab food, location, beer and super helpful staff!”

Fabulous place… our first impression was how pretty and well looked after it was. We, of course, had to try it and ended up eating here on several occasions. The food was always superb, the setting was idyllic and the loos always immaculate (the beer went down very well too!) Whether for breakfast or dinner we loved the place. We felt it only polite to call by for another perfect breakfast on the day we were leaving! Dog friendly too!
