Welcome to Our Website


Sibling owners Nick and Sheila look forward to welcoming you.

Although, at times, it did feel like one of those TV makeover programmes with an impossible deadline for transformation (except we couldn’t speed up the action), we’re thrilled to have officially opened in August 2016 following a full refurbishment of the pub. We’re also so grateful to have received so much support about the reinstatement of the pub as well as plenty of enthusiasm for our Friday night pizza evenings, Saturday night curry evenings, as well as for our traditional Sunday lunches and the regular quiz nights. We’re also totally thrilled to have been awarded the West Suffolk & Borders CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) Pub of the Month in February 2017.

We are really pleased with the new bar, and seating areas looking out over what will be, next spring, a beautiful wild meadow once again. There’s also splendid outdoor furniture  on the patio, and the indoor chairs are freshly upholstered. Feel welcome to come and take a look and join us for a drink or a meal. Catering is underway and we are enjoying having our shiny new kitchen in use. There is also a plentiful supply of drink – especially of excellent beer, as we celebrate being a FREE HOUSE for the first time in the Fox’s venerable history.

Feel welcome to join our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for further updates. If you have any other queries then please contact us.

Food & Drink

For the time being, there is Woodforde’s ‘Wherry’ and ‘Nog’ on tap all the time, with one or two other cask ales. There is a fairly extensive range of soft drinks for adults and children, and we can serve the odd cafetiere coffee and cup of tea.

The Pakenham Fox is delighted to be serving food and the extremely positive response to the delectable range of offerings means that booking ahead is definitely recommended to avoid disappointment. On Friday evenings (7-9pm), beautiful, rustic pizzas are cooked on-site, which are available to eat in or take away. Offerings include: margarita, vegetarian, spicy sausage / anchovies and capers / salami.
