Had the taster menu and it rated as one the nicest the food was inventive and delicious very well presented and served with such charm and in the most professional way. This evening was a delight from the moment we walked in to such a warn and buzzy restaurant until we finished.

All the wines were a great accompaniment and went with each dish beautifully. We were looked after very well by Sam and Stevie, with both of them being very knowledgeable about the food and... More

We had a lovely meal here. The food was excellent. The service was great and the ambience is pleasant. A good night out. I can recommend the whitebait, the lamb and the lemon drizzle cake dessert

Enthusiastic and welcoming waiter. Very tasty and well executed and presented food indeed. Sampled the tasting menu. 5 courses plus amuse bouche and home made breads. Innovative cooking.

Description
STOP PRESS... We are proud to announce we have received 2 AA rosettes for culinary excellence. Having initially trained at the White Pheasant in 2005, Head Chef Calvin Holland went on to cook at some of the UK's finest multi-rosette & Michelin Star restaurants, only to return to the White Pheasant in August this year as Head Chef and Proprietor.With an emphasis on locally sourced produce alongside award winning wines, this family owned restaurant offers everything from light lunches or a traditional Sunday lunch to the finest A La Carte menu. The epitome of country dining, boasting a beautiful open fire and weathered floorboards, the Pheasant is now taking bookings for Christmas parties with a special menu of exquisite dishes designed for the winter months such as braised cheek of Hereford beef or a Ballotine of Gressingham duck. Menu's & wine lists are all available on line.
