The pheasant is our favourite place to chill out with guaranteed excellent food and service at the weekends. The staff are friendly and well informed and it is never too much trouble to change around the sides, sauces etc to suit, from those specified on the menu. The portions are very substantial, the dishes beautifully presented and most of all,... More

Very good quality meal, with a nice portion size on the fish, as some restaurants can be skimpy with fish. The menu had a good selection and the rest of the party complimented their food too. The service was also excellent and I would return and also recommend to others

The restaurant advertised a steal,platter for two for £22 including free meals for two children under 12 if accompanied by two adults. When we arrived it wasn't on the menu but they said it was on offer. They gave the children a special menu with three options only one of which was free. They chose one of the menus which... More
