I was only here for one night. Very friendly, clean. Great gin bar and restaurant. Very enjoyable. Note parking is round the back and hence no need to use NcP paid parking opposite.

The meal in the in-hotel restaurant was terrific. Enjoyed a pork dish and vegetarian - both outstanding. Our server Ionelia was accommodating - arranging a quiet table where we could have a business conversation with a colleague. We really appreciated her willingness to make a suitable space happen. Overall excellent experience.

I was treated to business dinner at the Lion & Pheasant by a client, along with another consultant we're working with, and what a treat it was. Although the meals initially look small (the plates are big!) I wouldn't call it 'nouvelle cuisine'. I was not disappointed. Far from it... I have to say it was one of the tastiest... More

Lovely atmosphere, staff very attentive, amuse bouche delicious but.....whilst I had the Jacobs Ladder main course and it was good my wife had the Rib-Eye steak and it was completely overwhelmed by the herb salsa which was all over it and just wasn't nice (we both tried it), in addition to that the steak tasted grainy almost like it had...

Recently visited with a large group, the service was absolutely outstanding - especially given the size of our party, no one left waiting for food all arrived at the same time. We were very well looked after. The food was delicious - everyone thoroughly enjoyed there meals... So much so we visited for a second time the following night. I... More

The £20 for two courses early bird menu was really different and unusual. Salmon and ravioli were very scrummy. The glazed jacob's ladder was melt in the mouth and the sea bass and pearl barley equally tasty. Service with a smile and nice set up with a lovely special gin aperitif. A good choice all round!

Our third or fourth time here and normally I would highly recommend this little gem but this visit was just okay I'm afraid. Room 10 , a nice room in itself but the bathroom is just too small, it would suit for one night but any longer it would be an issue. The other problem with this ensuite was there... More

Always very good for Sunday lunch, Waitress Ionelia is particularly helpful. Only tiny grumble is being regular it would be good to see menu varied occasionally although your waitress staff have helped her as well.
