Places to Eat

We are very lucky in Great Chishill because there are so many good places to eat within a 10 mile radius, and some right on our doorstep.

Here is a list of just a few but note that the list should not necessarily be taken as a personal recommendation. We suggest that you check out review sites such as Tripadvisor before making a booking.

The Pheasant, Great Chishill
The King William IV, Heydon
The Red Cow, Chrishall
The Green Man, Thriplow
The Chequers, Fowlmere

The Pheasant

Great Chishill

01763 838535

This was our 'local', just 100 yards away from the cottage, but sadly it is closed at the present time.

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.


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.
This is the sister pub to the community owned pub, The Green Man in Thriplow.

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.
