Built in the 16th century and once one of the most prominent inns and breweries of Bury St Edmunds The Saracens Head was trading as early as 1730 from the site on Guildhall Street but trading came to an abrupt end when bankruptcy proceedings forced the sale of the property in 1901. The building was auctioned shortly after and The Royal British Legion moved in and called it home for over 100 years but once again financial issues meant the building fell in to disrepair and it was sold in 2008. Some original features remain and the original Saracens heads dating from the 1800’s once took pride of place above the front door can now be found inside the venue.
Extensive renovations took place and in 2009 the The Hunter Club was born, and has since established itself as one of Bury St Edmunds leading independent venues for live music and private hire.
We are dedicated to supporting local creative performers and artists, and we provide a much-needed, fully-equipped venue for independent music promoters and artistic performers. We are proud to support a wide range of local grassroots bands and musicians, Comedians, Drag artists, Theatre, and more.
