About Us

We just like to offer good hospitality in a friendly environment.

You’ll Feel at Home With Us

The Pheasant Inn was built in 1874 (see below) as a typical small Victorian two bar Public House. Early in the 1900’s the pub absorbed an adjoining house and then later that century was extended substantially to create the current function suite and letting bedrooms. Throughout these developments the pub has retained it’s character and remains a very traditional English Pub, with a strong band of regulars and, as ever some local characters.

The pub is a true Freehouse meaning we are pleased to offer an extensive range of the brand leading lagers as well as five

Cask Conditioned Real Ales. We are proud to support our local micro bewers and will always have a choice from these local brewers on offer as well as our resident ales.

If you are looking for one of the Country’s few remaining traditional local’s pubs, then you’ve found it!

We are conveniently located in Dunstable, which is close to Luton Airport, the Dunstable Downs, Leighton Buzzard, Woburn, Milton Keynes Bowl and Whipsnade Zoo.

All the team at The Pheasant Inn look forward to seeing you!

The Pheasant was built in 1874
