after a bad experience 2 years ago for valentines night we decided to give the pheasant another try as it used to be a favourite of ours for many years, we had family from canada and I have to say we really enjoyed our meals, lovely surroundings and atmosphere and the food was good, what more do you want.

There was great selection on the menu plenty to choose from. The service was excellent and the host was very welcoming. My granddaughter was there and they had colouring and puzzle book to keep her amused. We only had the main course. My daughter had the pasta but she felt it lacked any definite flavour however it was well cooked.... More

Superb Sunday lunch. Varied menu covering roasts,fish and veggie. There were six of us and we all choose something different no complaints! Plenty to eat without being overloaded. Puddings were wonderful! Comfortable seating and well spaced.
