Booked as a birthday gift for my wife and it didn't disappoint. Stayed in Captain Oates room which was stunningly decorated, had Jaccuzzi bath and huge shower. Staff were attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding. All veg was grown in their allotment and they smoke their own salmon. Couldn't have wished for better for a relaxing couple of nights.

My wife and I stayed for one night to celebrate my 60th birthday. It's a great location out in the country and there are some nice walks from The Pheasant itself. We were made very welcome and enjoyed a drink in the bar before being shown to our room which was very nicely decorated and well appointed. The evening meal... More

Dinner was excellent , great choice, very good wine and very pleasant service from a delightful waitress. We would recommend this highly if you want a quiet, peaceful yet value for... More

Check out The Pheasant; if you want to be in the heart of beautiful Eglish country and to eat and sleep well, this is for you. My wheelchair-bound partner and I had a delightful two nights at The Pheasant in the Mark Catesby room, which is not only beautiful in design and furnishing but also marvellously conceived as an accessible...

We had a wonderful 1 night stay at the Pheasant. We were made to feel very welcome and Diana was extremely helpful in printing out cycle maps for us. Our dinner and breakfast was first class, thanks to James's cooking and the room was lovely and exceptionally clean. The fresh milk is a nice touch. We enjoyed our own private... More

This is how to do it. Glass of Prosecco on arrival. Huge and beautiful bedrooms, elegantly decorated and equipped to perfection. The bathroom was better than ours at home! Excellent evening meal and wonderful breakfast . Engaging friendly owners who are keen to ensure everything is perfect, which it was. One of the very best we have ever stayed in.

Arrived on friday to be met by enthusiastic staff and a glass of prosecco. We were shown to our room, which was the most comfortable room I have ever been in. Complementary teas and coffees made better with fresh milk in the fridge, a beautiful view with plenty of reading material and a jacuzzi and huge walk in shower! Diana... More
