Keyston
About the restaurant
The Pheasant is a traditional thatched pub restaurant nestled in the Cambridgeshire countryside at the heart of the beautiful village of Keyston located 15 miles from Huntingdon or just 4.5 miles from Raunds. Honest, fresh, and locally sourced food forms part of the modern British menu with a twist complemented by an extensive yet eclectic wine list.

What makes The Pheasant stand out is its two beautiful but very different areas inside for guests to choose from. In the relaxed yet bustling bar with an open fire, comfy chairs, and bar stools you will find a selection of real ales, cocktails, and mocktails as well as the extensive wine list and bar snacks. Alternatively, the recently redecorated bright and airy restaurant at the back of the building with views over the country garden and surrounding fields sets the scene for a romantic dinner or family or business lunch and is ever popular.

Lovely meal on a Monday night. Excellent service and thoroughly recommend the katsu scallops if you get the chance to try them. They were delicious. So lucky to have this restaurant near us and to see it thriving under the new management.

5 of us had dinner at the George and all our meals were excellent. The white chocolate dessert with raspberry sorbet was a work of art!

We attended the Thursday night music night in the garden. What a wonderful evening with a great ambience. Four singers entertained us through the evening with some great singer/guitar acts. Food and service was good and the whole evening just a delight. Would recommend when the weather is nice without hesitation.
