Situated in the heart of Bury St Edmunds, the Farmers Club is housed in a fine period building, but offers our members a modern professional Business Centre, historical Bar, Georgian Restaurant and a tranquil space to relax in our Grade 1 listed Lower Lounge – all surrounded by our private country gardens, summer terrace and of course, our secure car park.
These days you definitely don’t have to be a farmer to join! We are delighted to welcome interested folk from all walks of local life. Originally founded in 1947 by a group of farmers, the Club offered a convenient meeting place for those from the agricultural, professional and mercantile arenas around Bury St Edmunds. We continue that ethos today and offer a refreshingly elegant and relaxing sanctuary for both men and women whilst continuing to focus on our long standing values of personal service and hospitality.
