Welcomed by Diana and shown to our large comfortable room with views over the open countryside. The wet room was lovely. We particularly liked having a fridge with a jug of fresh milk, a good selection of tea and a cafetiere. We had intended eating in the pub for the first evening but ate there every evening. The food was... More

What started out as a last minute one night stay could become a habit. We arrived to the warmest of welcomes and it just got better and better. All the staff were welcoming and friendly. Nothing was ever rushed. The food was top notch and there was plenty to choose from. Perhaps we will have to keep going back until... More

The Coach House at The Pheasant always delivers 5* from the quality of the rooms to the amazing food. Thought has gone in to every detail to make this a perfect place to sleep, eat and drink, just don't tell everyone otherwise it will be fully booked.

On arrival we were welcomed with a smile and drinks. The staff could not have been more helpful during our stay and nothing was too much trouble. Our hosts Diana and James were always available and the food served was excellent (prepared by James to a very high standard). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will recommend it to anyone... More

My husband and I stayed at the pheasant for two nights and all I can say is wow wow wow. We have genuinely come away with not a negative thing to say - our stay was truly fantastic and relaxing. So as a quick overview: Friendliness of staff: From when we first arrived Diana and all her staff were welcoming... More

High had expectations for the Pheasant and while the food was enjoyed by our party, the service was not. We were not greeted with a smile and did not see one for the rest of the evening. Our waitress seemed far too interested in standing and talking to the gentlemen at the table adjacent to ours and therefore we did... More

This is a really lovely pub with great boutique style modern accommodation at the back. We stayed overnight on a b&b and evening meal basis. It's in a great location, very rural in part of a picturesque village and as the sun was shining, we enjoyed some lovely walks. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully presented, very new and squeaky... More

We stayed for just one night whilst attending a wedding at nearby Hedingham Castle. Unfortunately on arrival Diana didn't greet us with a welcoming smile as was having a bad morning. Staff had called in sick and she was in the kitchen and running the bar. She was clearly stressing about a large group which were about to arrive for... More

Stayed at the Pheasant whilst attending a wedding at nearby Hedingham Castle for which it is ideally placed. Everything about the place was first class the room was beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean and the food at both breakfast and dinner was excellent. Diana, the landlady could not have been more welcoming and attentive. One slight word of warning is... More
