The food and service were great. The steaks were cooked the way they were asked for and the sides were enough to share between the five of us.
Great meal was had by all.

As we live around the corner from the restaurant it's not surprising that we tend to eat there quite often. It's certainly our eatery of choice in the Hillsborough area. We called in en route from a day out and as it was a Saturday were lucky to be seated immediately by the manager on duty, Janet. I can only say that we always feel welcomed by all the staff and find The Pheasant a very hospitable retaurant indeed. My husband ordered from the specials menu and enjoyed his chunky ham served with mash and veg. I opted for two side salads as a main course - the avocado, rocket and tomato and the caesar, both of which I enjoyed. We shared my husband's dessert and finished off with coffees. All in all I have to say that the service and friendliness at the Pheasant would be hard to beat - they also do some very good gourmet evenings with seafood or game but we tend to give the latter a miss as I don't eat game. It's worth finding out about if you do though as I hear it's excallent.

Came to this restaurant for the first time having moved locally. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent. Young staff going out of their way to be helpful and polite. Looked like they enjoyed working there and it is good to see. Lovely sharing butcher's block. Great relaxing meal. Will be back for more soon !

We were there last night for a meal. The food was very good, nicely presented and pleasantly served. However the menu on Sunday is on a card and part of it is hard to read. The steaks are not included in the 2/3 course offers also the side orders for them are extra making this option expensive. It would be good if this part of the menu was easier to read. The rest of choices are really well priced. I would go these again but be more careful when ordering.
