Dine, Drink, Dance


We are a warm and welcoming, family run, Free house Traditional Pub that has been in the family for over 17 years. We have decided to open a modern restaurant, keeping the pub as its well-known self, however, venturing in a new direction opening our restaurant, The Vixen. This offers an A La Carte menu, while still creating a more casual experience in The Fox Inn Pub.


Our Bar area offers a place to escape your worries and indulge in one of our craft beers or a gin from our wide selection with over 50 varieties. We believe it’s not just about the drink, The Fox Inn is a unique social centre which is the focus of community life on our Island; from young to old we live and breathe for the local community while offering a welcoming vibe to all.


The Vixen is a modern 65-cover restaurant in which the team prides itself on serving freshly caught local seafood and local produce in calm and relaxed surroundings.


 We always have something special to offer; when it's cold outside, keep warm by our log fire, while in summer you and the kids can enjoy our outdoor family seating and play area.


 Our sports room has a full-size pool table, juke box and a flat screen tv to add to our broad range of entertainment. This includes our band nights or a Sunday afternoon musician to provide a place to relax and forget about the real world.




All of us at The Fox Inn are proud to announce that we were the winners of the Colchester Gazette Restaurant of the year award 2019, winning out of the 16 restaurants that participated.


We look forward to welcoming you, whether you're having a snack at lunchtime or coming in for a drink with friends of an evening! From a pint to a cocktail, from a sandwich to a business lunch; we're sure you'll keep coming back for more!
