Thurston Black Foxhistorical era: late 20th century
opened 1885 circa
When it was open, the Black Fox had a good reputation for its beer. Ady Smith, the current landlord of the Ipswich Dove, used to cycle here regularly when he lived in Finborough.
It's shown as an un-named beerhouse on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century and probably dates from just before that time. larger map
