The Pheasant is a charming country Pub and Resturant situated in the countryside near Annahilt. My friend and I had a wonderful two course lunch for £12.95. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the atmosphere was very convivial. I would recommend this hostelry for a visit

We had dinner here on Saturday night. As always it is advisable to book. Very popular location. The chef has provided a good selection on the menu which should cater for all tastes. We had a selection of meals from steak to fish and all proved to be well cooked and presented. Prices are varied and you can find value... More

After a long drive to see my Mum who lives nearby the Pheasant we stopped off for some Bar food because we were having a family meal later that night. When we arrived in the Bar we were told that there was only a Sunday menu available. I asked if we could not just get a panini, burger or a... More

Came for the steak special, place was packed, and although service was a wee bit slow all the staff were working as fast as they could, and couldn't have been more pleasant. When the steaks came out, the sirloin was lovely, the rump, very chewy, we said to the manager who got us a new one, no questions asked, happy... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. The menu choice was fairly standard pub/restaurant fare, however where they score is in the presentation of the food. For example the burgers were well cooked and moist with choice of different accompaniments, i.e not just fries. The service was a little erratic, though a certain degree of this could be put down to... More

We have been here 3 times recently and on all 3 occassions the food had been great quality and well presented. We enjoy the steak sharing platter but have also shared a chicken curry meal as one of us found it too much on a previous occassion especially following a starter. Staff were flexible, courteous and helpful. The food is... More

The Pheasant is a comfortable, well set out restaurant. Their early bird is very good value and they have a separate menu for "Gluten Free". Also nothing is too much trouble and they will alter the main menu to accommodate Coeliacs. Service can be a bit slow if the restaurant is very busy, but sit back and enjoy your surroundings... More

Called into the Pheasant for an early dinner on the way home from a day out. Lovely food, we had the steak sarnie, tipsy bull burger and prawn pitta. The Greek feta salad side was not great, the feta wasn't actually feta but tasted like cubes of cream cheese- which was rather odd. Service was very pleasant if a little... More

I went to the Pheasant for friend's birthday dinner. I am a pescetarian so eat fish but no other meat. There were several tasty-looking seafood dishes but I was disappointed to see that there were absolutely no vegetarian dishes - so don't bring any veggie friends! I ordered one dish and then at the last minute changed my mind as... More
