“Pleasant Saturday Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We had eaten here on several previous occasions and all in all we enjoyed this reurn visit.

We were glad we booked a table foir six, although the place didn't seem as busy as on previous visits. It took almost 40 minutes for our food to arrive after four of us placed our order, but when the the other two arrived somewhat later the wait was only 10 minutes: obviously we had originally hit the peak service time.

Food was good when it came - excellent home produced burger, Spicy Caesar salad, two deli platters (pate, pork pie, cheese, roll mop etc) and two very good childrens meals, one pasta, one a burger with beans and chunky chips.

Bill for four adult main courses, two childrens meals, drinks for all and coffee for the adults came to £80. Beers were excellent.

Service was rather slow and impersonal.

The location is special and the offering was good, but lacking in charm. We'll return some time and hope to be greeted with a smiling swift service rather than just dogged effciency.

Visited restaurant on 9/6/12 for mum's birthday. Great table with amazing views of countryside. Fantastic 3 course meal - delicious food and big portions (sticky toffee pud unbelievable)! Good children's menu too. Service great - friendly and attentive. Would recommend to anyone who likes good food in a beautiful setting with a great atmosphere. Will definitely be back!

We meet annually for a walking holiday with my brother, his wife and our dogs. 2012 was our turn to arrange the venue and walks. As a result of "Google search" and "Tripadvisor" we booked in at "The Pheasant Inn" for three nights commencing Tuesday, May 8th.
What a stunning situation, on the top of the hill looking out over The Cheshire Plain! Friendly staff welcomed us, showed us our rooms and explained that our dogs were welcome in the bar area. Lunch that day was just a taster for the high quality breakfasts and dinners we experienced. One morning the chef even baked more croissants for us, which merely reinforced the dedication of customer care given by the staff at "the Pheasant Inn".
We can't recommend "The Pheasant" more highly.
Incidentally and unusually we discovered our dogs were welcomed in the pubs we chose for our lunch stops, so we can also recommend the area to other dog walkers looking for a lovely walking destination.

I met my partner for the evening at this lovely pub last Wednesday. My booking had been taken only a day or so before and I was looking forward to a mid-week break in the country. We couldn't have asked for more .. our room was absolutely lovely and the weather was surprisingly good so we could take in those amazing views. The telescope is a lovely touch !
We chilled out for a while and then went to dinner, we had a really cosy table and the place was buzzing.
We had a lovely bottle of Mirror Lake sauvignon, I had the confit breast of salt marsh lamb and my partner had the cottage pie from the specials board, the accompanying red cabbage was delicious ! We shared a side of French beans with bacon and Blackstick blue cheese, everything was really good.
Incredible location and views, gorgeous bedroom, lovely staff and great food. This is a Cheshire gem that I can't wait to go back to.

Spent a Friday night here with my boyfriend. Couldn't believe the value for money and excellent service we received. Having spent a fortune staying at the Crowne Plaza in Chester a couple of weeks previous i would never stay there again and will keep returning to the Pheasant inn in future!

Room Tip: Rawhead Room was beyond a 'standard' room. Full marks from me!

We visited The Pheasant Inn yesterday lunchtime after having it recommended to us by people who live nearby. They go there regularly. This was our first visit and we were really pleased we took note of their recommendation.
Spectacular setting with wide-reaching views. They have a telescope for better viewing, but as it was quite cloudy we didn't bother to part with the 20p!
We had one course each. My friend had Ceasar salad with garlic bread and I had the Lamb-burger with chips and a relish. Both were excellent.
The staff were very helpful.
Will go back if we are in the area again.

The views are stunning, there is a lot of good historical walking/cycling country nearby, and the food is wonderful. We had fresh, inventive British food, with superb Argentinian wine. Excellent all round.
