I found this gem of a venue on the internet. From intial enquiry through to check out Dianna and the team offered nothing but top star service. I wanted to find a venue to celebrate my 40th that offered locally sourced fresh food, a nice surrounding and possibility to stay overnight. The rooms were beautiful - we occupied 4 of... More

We visited for our anniversary weekend and were not disappointed. Immediately on arrival, we were welcomed with our prosecco and cream tea and shown to our room - the Constable. The room was very nicely done with an extremely comfortable four poster bed. There was also a large shower but the water was stubborn to drain meaning showers had to... More

We have just returned from a 2 night dinner, bed & breakfast stay at The Pheasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are all lovely and friendly. Accommodation is in a purpose-built house behind the pub. We stayed in the Samuel Courtauld room, on the first floor with beautiful views over the cornfields. The room was tastefully decorated and...

After reading so many excellent reviews, and noting the awards that this place has received, we were really looking forward to a great night away with good food in luxurious surroundings. We arrived and were warmly greeted by the lovely Julia, who showed us to our room in the Coach House guest accommodation, which was set back from the pub.... More

Dear David and Clare Minter I am so sad to read your review on trip adviser and can only apologise for this unfortunate experience.

Having just returned home from a meal at the pheasant I feel I must leave this well deserved review. The starters, mains and deserts were all served hot, together and with style. We were a group of ten people ranging from the ages of 25 to 70 and each of us cleared our plates, the food was delicious and well... More

This is the place to stay if you want a good nights sleep - it is blissfully quiet, surrounded by fields. Have to add that the bed is fabulously comfy!
