The food is absolutely lovely, the place is absolutely lovely but what's happened to the service? I've been going to the Lion and Pheasant reguarly for the last 18 months and always been delighted with it all. But the last few times have been a disaster and its all been down to the service. Doesnt seem to be anyone managing... More

This isn't the first time I've eaten at the Lion + Pheasant, in fact as well as several meals I've also booked and stayed overnight here, twice! On this occasion I visited with a group for a lunch time booking, and as usual the food was superb. I chose the rib eye steak (rare) and it was absolutely spot on,... More

Lovely surroundings in a cosy old building close to the English bridge. Nice menu with some interesting dishes. Rabbit lasagne was delicious and well presented as was mushroom risotto.

Visited last Friday eve for a friends birthday, the third time I've eaten there. Nothing has changed; the quality of the food is ok at best, the portions are small and the prices are high. I shall not visit again, there are many other choices in town...

We ate here with friends just before xmas and were very disappointed, the staff were not exactly perfect. Too many staff chatting around the bar area where we were seated, food was average at best and not a lot of it. Quite expensive for the hype that this restaurant gets. The only member of staff that was polite was the... More

If you're after a 'special occasion' venue, then this is a place that's worth considering. I took my wife for her Birthday lunch last month. We hadn't booked but we managed to get a table and I recommend the table for two by the fire. We each had a starter and a main, two drinks and a liqueur coffee each... More

The menu was simple but very well done. My husband ordered the pork belly which is the best I have ever tasted.

I just love the décor in this restaurant. Staff are friendly and efficient. We ordered the turkey Christmas lunch - it was excellent and lovely and hot. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and this was excellent quality and well cooked.
