Welcome to The Pakenham Fox

Roadmap out of Lockdown

From 12th April we hope to open our beer garden and meadow for drinks only as follows:

Tuesday-Friday 5.00-8.00 pm
Saturdays and Sundays 12.00-8.00 pm


Under new Track and Trace rules, we will now be required to take contact details of every customer (not as previously just one per household), and to refuse entry to anyone who doesn’t comply. Entry will therefore be from the bridge in the car park, where everyone will be asked either to scan our QR code or fill in an entry card.

Furthermore, table service only is allowed, even outside. Customers will be able to order using our App, or for those who don’t have smart phones we will have staff who can take your orders. We would ask that customers pay by card
whenever possible, although we will of course accept cash if it is not possible.

We will do our very best to serve everyone promptly and make your first visit to a pub for many months enjoyable. Given the complexity of these arrangements, however, we are bound to have some teething troubles, so please bear with us if that is the case.

After officially opened in August 2016 following a full refurbishment, we’re so proud that the Pakenham Fox has become an award-winning pub having won three coveted awards including West Suffolk Pub of the Year 2018. 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 regular quiz nights, Friday night pizza evenings, as well as for our food service, which includes traditional Sunday lunches. 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.

You can stay in touch via our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter for further updates. If you have any other queries then please contact us.

Food & Drink



All our ales are locally sourced.  We always have Woodforde’s ‘Wherry’ and ‘Kings’ from Mighty Oak, as well as two other ales which change regularly.  Of course we also offer lager and Guinness, as well as Aspall’s, Lilley’s Rhubarb Cider and Devon Scrumpy.

There’s a selection of spirits, and soft drinks for children and drivers – not to forget a variety of crisps, nuts, etc.


Our lunch, dinner and garden menus have all proved popular, as have our traditional Sunday roasts.  Booking is definitely recommended, especially for Sundays.  To view a sample Saturday night menu please click here. Please note that this menu is only an example, and will be subject to change, but it should give you a good idea of what’s available in terms of food options and prices. To book a table, please phone the pub during opening hours: 01359 230194.

On Friday nights, we serve either delicious rustic pizzas from Sean’s oven in the garden, or traditional fish and chips – all very informal; no need to book, but do remember, the oven cooks only two pizzas at a time!  Sometimes in the summer it’s paella instead – cooked in a traditional paella pan.  All Friday food is available to eat in or take away.
