The Layer Fox is a family owned free-house set in the in the heart of the picturesque village of Layer De La Haye, less than four miles from Colchester and surrounded by beautiful countryside. Situated on the way to Mersea Island, it is a perfect place for a break whilst visiting the wetlands and bird reserves of Abberton Reservior, or the acres of woodland and nature trails at Fingringhoe Wick.
With ‘The Sleepy Fox’ Bed and Breakfast chalets, an ever changing menu of beautiful, simple, home-cooked food and selection of ‘Cask Marque’ accredited draught ales, why not give us a visit?
We are open from 9am right through to 11.30pm Monday to Thursday, 9am to midnight Friday and Saturday and 9am to 10.30pm Sundays. So there’s always time to pop in, enjoy some of our beautiful Italian coffee or one of our homemade cakes and curl up on the sofa in front of the fireplace. Should you wish to discuss booking a party then we’re always happy to help, we have a lovely function room great for get-togethers. From Weddings to Funerals, Birthdays to Beer festivals, we’ve hosted a few!
Looking forward to seeing you, Jinjer and Zoe. Xx
