Our Kitchen

Simple dishes, locally sourced

The Pheasant Inn

Our award-winning sister pub borders the village of Shefford Woodlands, overlooking Berkshire's famed Valley of the Racehorse.

With 14 luxurious en-suite guest rooms, the newly refurbished inn has a hospitality pedigree that stretches back 450 years, and its adventurous drinks menu and flavoursome modern British cooking have won widespread acclaim from The Times, The Sunday Telegraph, Condé Nast Traveller and many more.

The Duncombe Arms

Described by Tom Parker Bowles as ‘the local we all wish we had’, the Duncombe Arms offers outstanding food, rustic-chic rooms and a stellar wine list in the quaint Staffordshire village of Ellastone.

Like his son Jack, The Surprise’s landlord, Johnny Greenall has a generations-old hospitality pedigree as part of the Greenall-Whitley brewing dynasty, and he and his wife Laura have poured all their passion for top-notch produce, beautiful interiors and a classic country pub welcome into this award-winning dining destination.
