To all our loyal customers,

Following the announcement from the Government. We are sad to announce that The Layer Fox will be closed, until further notice.

We will update you all via our Website, Instagram and Facebook of any further developments.

Many thanks for your continued support.

The Foxy Team

We look forward to welcoming you back very soon.

The Layer Fox is at the centre of the rural village of Layer de la Haye south of Colchester. Over 300 years old, it re-opened under new management in the summer of 2015 having been completely refurbished throughout. This restored and revealed the attractive old beams and oak flooring. There are three main areas: the comfortable dining room, an attractive bar with a large fireplace (and wood-burning stove in the winter) plus a cosy snug with books and free national newspapers available.
There are two terraces – one at the front and the other to the rear and so on fine days there is always a seat in the sun.
The four comfortable en suite bedrooms are in a quiet, separate building.
