A little pub history

The Colney Fox has been around a while and although there are no records pre dating the 1940's, it is thought that it was originally used as a boy's school. In the 1940's and 1950's it was called The Watersplash Hotel, a venue complete with, restaurant and swimming pool. Now restored and renamed, The Colney Fox is still full of heritage and tradition.
