Try to return to The Pheasant at least once a year. Lovely country pub and excellent food! I never seem to get further than the cheese souffle , goats cheese salad and bread & butter pudding. But the whole menu is tempting. A good vegetation choice and something for everyone. Well cooked and Absolutely delicious. The food , along with... More

A lovely cosy pub, quite busy the evening we visited for a meal. Food was okay but nothing special, kids portions on the small side we did ask staff who said the portions were generous but not so...would have ordered adult portions. It seemed that the guests staying were given preference to being served quicker with food even though we... More

We called at the Pheasant for lunch a couple of weeks ago on our way to a photographic exhibition. As always we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. The blackboard menu offered an excellent range of food and had 6 vegetarian options which is always the case and is one of the reasons we love this place. The service... More

Rooms were spotless and furnished to a good standard. The staff were beyond helpful and really friendly. The bar offered an excellent selection of real ales and the food menu was comprehensive with something to appeal to most tastes. The location is idilic and the view from my room was to die for. All in all highly recommended

We chose this Inn because of its proximity to the Keilder Observatory where we had booked in for an evening's stargazing. The Inn is in a good location for this, It is quiet and friendly. The rooms are a decent size and clean. We had dinner there both evening and breakfast They are quite happy to cater for people who... More

Thank you for the review. In answer to a couple of your points , we don't stay open all day but residents will always be able to have a drink during the afternoon. We find that there is not the demand to justify staff cover during the afternoon. The Steak and Kidney Pie should have Kidney in it but the... More

We arrived mid afternoon to a welcome from Timothy Taylor at the bar - the rest of the staff were very friendly as well. After quenching our thirst we were shown to a lovely, spacious ensuite room. Unfortunately there was a leak to the radiator in the ensuite, which meant it was very cold. When this was pointed out to... More

Thank you for taking time to leave us a review. I am as always delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Radiators spouting water is not a regular problem but thankfully we were able to resolve this quickly. The starry night was of course ordered for you just to round of your stay. Thanks again More

Thank you for the review, delighted you enjoyed your lunch. Sorry about the congestion in the car park but development of Garden cottage is coming to a head so all trades are onsite at the moment. this should be coming to an end over the next few weeks. Thanks again More

The first thing that struck us - it is not just clean - the whole place sparkles. With friends, we have just spent three nights here. Our bedroom was not over large, but well decorated, with good lighting, plenty of hangers in the wardrobe, good drawer space, a small flat screen TV, & tea/coffee facilities. The bathroom was again well... More

Had a marvellous two night stay at The Pheasant Inn. A really cosy base to explore the Northumberland area and Kielder. We arrived earlier than expected and had a fantastic lunch which set the tone for the quality of the food we were served for the weekend. The rooms are great, showers powerful and the beds extremely comfortable. The evening... More

Well from a wonderful Pub serving lovely food to a waste of good money this was a strange review but I take your points seriously. Unfortunately we don't serve food all day but that is not so unusual. The quality of food served is I hope one of our strong points and portions generous enough for most. We will let... More
