I dined with the Pheasant Inn on Saturday 29th June for a very special occasion - my father's 70th birthday, however utterly disappointed just about sums up the service and food that my party (4 of us) experienced. Firstly, the Fell restaurant. We sat in the corner of the restaurant with no view of the fells at all except for... More

We booked the bistro for Sunday Lunch, well in advance and turned up at the appointed hour. Having recently moved to the area, we were looking forward to adding another Inn to our local repertoire of eateries. Upon ordering we were informed that there was no beef left, and were offered a steak substitute instead. My wife ordered the pork,... More

Following my 'average' review in August 2013, I must congratulate the staff (kitchen & front of house) for the improved service. The same menu is now served in the bistro and dining room with an additional small charge added for the more formal setting in the dining room (amuse bouche incuded, very tasty). The bistro is now very popular and... More

It was about three quarters full and the staff were very polite showing us to our table and taking a drinks order. We then both ordered the roast pork and that arrived before the drinks. I wouldn't have thougth a... More

The review says it all really, we visited the pheasant having booked a table for 4 at 8pm on a Saturday evening. On arrival we had to look for a member of staff to point us in the right direction. We were seated in the lounge and our drinks orders taken and canapés brought to us. We were then taken... More

I was fortunate enough to be taken here to dine by a family member whilst we were on holiday. From start to finish the standard of the food was exceptional. The main course vegetarian option I ordered was the most satisfying vegetarian meal I've probably had anywhere ever. Just first class. Service was attentive but not fussy, and the environment...

The Pheasant Inn on the north end of the Lake District is, in my opinion, one of the loveliest places in Northern England! Situated on the western side of Bassenthwaite Lake tucked into a loop off the highway, the Inn is truly a jewel. During a week-long team meeting in the Lake District, the third in 2012-2013, this was our... More

I am very disappointed with the Pheasant. It is one of my mother's favorite venues to eat when she is in the Lake District. For a birthday present I purchased a gift token to the value of £100. When my mum and stepfather recently went for a meal in the restaurant whilst on holiday, they had enjoyed a starter and... More

Great value for money and superb quality of cooked food. The service was also some of the friendliest we have ever met with anywhere. My only hesitation in sharing this review is that next time I want to eat there with my wife, you will book a table ahead of me!
