The Pheasant

Great Chishill

01763 838535

This is our 'local', just 100 yards away from the cottage. It just had a major refurbishment and now has a lovely garden area, 2 patios and a large dining room, and is offering superb lunchtime and evening meals. Coffee and cakes etc available during the day. Closed on Mondays.

King William IV


01763 838773

Heydon is the next village eastwards along the ridge from Great Chishill, no more than a mile away. The King William IV has an excellent reputation for its food, especially vegetarian food - in fact it has won several awards in the last few years for its vegetarian menu.

Fox and Hounds


01763 802 505

Barley is the nearest village westwards. The Fox and Hounds is a 17th-century Grade II listed building that has recently undergone a £1M makeover and with acclaimed chef, Brett Barnes the pub offers a unique food offering that fuses local produce and ingredients with traditional cooking methods including curing, smoking and grilling over wood and charcoal.

The Red Cow


01763 838792

A little further (3 miles from us) along the ridge is the village of Chrishall, which has an old pub (believed to date back to Norman times - that's 11th Century!) which has been totally refurbished in recent years. The pub offers a range of typical English food, including a selection of home made (made on the premises) pies, in its intimate, heavily beamed restaurant.

The Chequers


01763 208369

This old, crooked pub was once a staging post on the route from London to Cambridge, and boasts that Samual Pepys once stayed there!
A family & dog friendly village pub providing a satisfying mix of real ales, fine wines & seasonal, locally sourced dishes from pub classics through to the very best in modern British cuisine.

The Green Man


01763 208855

The Green Man is a dog friendly traditional British pub, owned by the villagers of Thriplow and the surrounding community, and run on their behalf by Chris & Rebecca.
It is known for the variety and well kept real ales.
The menu at the Green Man is small, seasonal & daily changing. All dishes are cooked to order and the menu changes everyday to fit in what can be sourced from our suppliers. The pub celebrates the variety and quality of British produce and whole heartedly support British producers.
