The Pheasant at Keyston
The Pheasant is a large, thatched, traditional inn set in a sleepy village 12 miles west of Huntingdon. It is a regular County Dining Pub of the Year in the Good Pub Guide.
From 1967 to 2007, the inn was run by the Hoskins family. They then sold the pub, but now it is back in the family’s hands. To mark the homecoming, The Pheasant was awarded a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide 2013.
The Pheasant’s Michelin write-up reads: “Charming thatched ‘destination dining’ pub set in a sleepy hamlet. Seasonal daily menu features both the classics and some more international flavours.”
The large bar here is traditional and boasts exposed oak beams, large open fires and simple wooden furniture. At the rear there’s a light and airy garden room, with a sunny and stylish patio garden beyond, where a well-tended veg patch provides produce for the kitchen.
Real ales are on offer and The Pheasant is a proud supporter of Oundle-based brewery Nene Valley and other local beer producers.
You won’t be lacking in the wine department, either – owner John Hoskins is a Master of Wine.
