The long-awaited return of The Pheasant

Wells & Co. has announced it will be refurbishing local Bedford pub, The Pheasant. Standing right at the top of Kimbolton Road, The Pheasant has been a popular pub in the local area attracting guests from all over the county. Best known for its hearty meals and fantastic location, the pub has a great community feel and Wells’ plans to move it forward nod to that and much more…

Following the recent success of the refurbishment of The Gordon Arms, Wells & Co. is looking forward to welcoming a brand new look for The Pheasant. Work on the pub will begin shortly, with a hope to reopen after Easter. Works include internal redecorations, brand new signage and a refreshed, new look garden area to welcome families and beer drinkers alike.

Shirley Couchman, Retail Director, Wells & Co. said “We’re very much looking forward to working on the refurbishment of The Pheasant. We know it’s an important part of the community and just like the Gordon Arms, we’re very excited to bring it back to life and return it as the life and soul of the area. We are proud of our portfolio and look forward to updating one of our pubs so close to where our story started. It’s one of several exciting forthcoming developments within our estate over the next few years.”

Expect a fantastic food offer, an exciting range of events and entertainment and of course, Brewpoint’s award winning range of beers, brewed just down the road.

The pub will join the 25 strong portfolio of Wells UK Managed pubs which will reach 29 by the end of 2022, an impressive 36% growth in one year.
