Welcome to The Pheasant

Bordering the village of Shefford Woodlands and overlooking Berkshire’s famed Valley of the Racehorse, our beautiful country inn has a hospitality pedigree that stretches back 450 years.

Nestled among the scenic rolling fields of chalk downlands, yet less than a mile from the M4, our 14 bedrooms offer the weary traveller an idyllic haven. Linger and explore nearby attractions; such as Highclere Castle, Avebury Stone Circles and the North Wessex Downs, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and a wonderland for walkers.

Whether you are looking to enjoy a hearty meal from our seasonal, British menu or to simply pull up a vintage leather bar stool and hunker down in our cosy snug with a pint, the fire is roaring and the welcome is always warm.
