Great North Road Colsterworth
NG33 5LN

We are within close proximity to many historic towns, and only 20 minutes from Newark, which is very convenient for the Newark Antiques Fairs, and we also have easy access from the North and South A1. The Fox Inn started life as three cottages. At that time the A1 was called The Great North Road and was just a mud track. It is rumoured that Dick Turpin stayed here on his way to York. It is also been said, one of the contestants of the first bare knuckle fight, stayed here at the Fox. It is not known how old The Fox is. It has grown over the years from three old cottages to a pub well known to the travelling public. It was shut down in 1996 for the road widening of the A1, but the government of the day changed their mind, and it was left to deteriorate. After sometime The Fox was put up for sale and brought by a developer. It took two years to refurbish to get the Fox what it is today. It was brought by East of England Taverns Ltd in May 2004, The Fox now has nine letting rooms, a forty seater restaurant, two bars, and a large function room. It also has a very good head chef, and a family atomsphere. The Fox is situated near Stamford, which is an old market town with many old buildings and churches. Rutland water is very close by, with lovely views and wildlife. The Fox Inn is the ideal place to stay if you want to visit this great area of interest.
