We spent two lovely nights at The Pheasant. We stayed in a very nice room with a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside. We were blessed with great weather and had the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. Our room was very clean, tidy and well maintained. We ate in the restaurant both nights and had wonderful meals. Food was... More

had a pleasant stay at the Pheasant but felt things could be a lot better. It didn't really inspire me to go back and didn't match up to other stays in Suffolk like at the Westleton Crown. We had a suite which was nice enough but could hear the front door outside every time anyone walked in. The rooms are... More

My husband and I booked a one night Secret Escape deal to stay at The Coach House at the Pheasant and it did not disappoint. On arrival we were greeted warmly with a complimentary glass of prosecco and a cream tea- which was part of our deal. As I am gluten free i couldn't have the cream tea, but it... More

Househunting north of Sudbury we passed a sign for Gestingthorpe and dredged from our joint memory banks the name of The Pheasant and made the diversion. What a good decision! Although the pub/restaurant was quiet on Wednesday lunchtime we were treated as old friends and enjoyed superb hospitality. My wife cannot abide liver at home while I enjoy it so... More

We booked at this hotel as we were attending a wedding at the nearby Hedingham Castle. Unfortunately my 'satnav' is rather old and I found myself lost in the beautiful countryside, however a quick phone call gave us the correct route and we were greeted at the premises with a complimentary glass of prosecco. Our room(the Courtold room) was delightfully... More

Wonderful short break out in the country with lovely walks on your doorstep. Stayed in the Gainsborough suite which was both quiet and comfortable. Fabulous food with very friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely return..

Had a wonderful stay at The Pheasant. Food excellent, great choice on the menu plus lots of specials of the day, chef came and explained how he cooked the main meal. Large airy room, with nice finishing touches, home made cookies, fresh coffee & free wifi etc.

Just had a 2 day mid week break at this Inn/hotel. Combining a country pub feel with excellent food and accommodation there is no wonder it has recently been awarded 5 starts by the AA. We were made to feel most welcome with a glass of Prosecco on arrival and a cream tea which was of course delicious. The location... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night to celebrate my birthday and we are really pleased that we did. Upon arrival we were greeted by a young girl with a huge smile and attentive nature which was a very warm welcome. We stayed in The Samuel Cortauld room, a gorgeous room with stylish soft furnishings and a modernly... More
