The 1903 petty sessional divisional records states that there were no licensed premises in the parish of Toddington. I have one reference for the Newtown Cross Inn in 1939. I have yet to confirm the Newtown Cross Inn became the Pheasant Inn but it does seem probable as the pub is on the junction of the B4632 (old A46) and B4077.

In the 1970’s the Pheasant was owned by Ind Coope of Burton on Trent and became part of the Hall’s Oxford and West Brewery in the 1980’s (the brewery was in Burton, not Oxford!).

The pub was bought by the Pubs ‘n’ Bars leisure chain in August 2000. Donnington Brewery of Stow on the Wold now own the Pheasant Inn.

The Pheasant Inn is a short walk from Toddington Station on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Steam Railway.
