Why are we called the Bury St Edmunds & Farmers Club? Because the Club is made up of many non-farming people in Bury St Edmunds as well as some farmers from the surrounding area.

Although the name gives away the Club’s history, you don’t have to be a farmer to join these days! We are delighted to welcome members and guests from all walks of life.

Founded by a group of farmers in 1947, the Club offered a convenient meeting spot for professionals from Bury St Edmunds. Agricultural, mercantile and many other industries were represented in the membership.

That’s been the case ever since.

The Club has also stood by its original ethos: to be a relaxing, sophisticated retreat for the men and women of Bury St Edmunds and surrounding areas.

Work, pleasure or both?

We offer members beautiful surroundings, no matter the reason for their visit.

Luxury leisure

Many members enjoy the Club just for recreation. Our historical bar, regency dining room and grade 1 listed lower lounge (dating back to about 1350), are perfect for relaxing.

Enjoy the fine selection of food and drink while you socialise with friends – old and new.

Business-focused facilities

All recreational facilities are also available for our business members, who find that the impressive bar and restaurants are great for entertaining clients.

The Club also boasts a modern, professional Business Centre. Professionals work in classic surroundings, without compromising on tech. We offer high-speed Internet, printing & photocopying facilities, comfortable waiting rooms and more.

Our business facilities are available on a full-room (serviced office) basis. Find out more here. Business-minded readers might also like to see the meeting rooms for hire.

Classic English gardens

The icing on the cake: our building is surrounded by beautiful, well-maintained English gardens.
