I had never been here before and what a pleasant suprise........nice seating to lounge by the fire when it is lit and lounge away a couple of hours with a newspaper and with friends etc.....restaurant side was lovely, not like a basic pub at all........lovely, had a great evening and will certainly go again

A lot more than just your average country gastro pub. The white linen table cloths and serviettes, the candelabra on the table and the extensive menu make this a pub of choice when travelling on the M6. Just 5 minutes off the motorway at junction 19.

Every visit we have made has been perfect, the service and welcome are always impeccable and the ambiance of the log fires, real ale and good food on a sunday afternoon make it a perfect ending to any weekend.

We have decided to see if we can come by train to the plumley station next door as part of the beer by train trip a lot of people do.

If you are in Cheshire this is a must visit pub for good food, beer and an experience you will remember and refer back to for a long time.

We didn't feel like cooking, so we went to the Golden Pheasant and let them do it for us instead! I had the Sunday dinner which was mostly lovely - the potatoes were a bit fatty and the beef a bit hard BUT the lamb was lovely and the veg to my taste (not overdone).
Service was good and the bill wasn't too scary. We will visit again when the weather is better and sit outside :)

We drink in the golden pheasent on a regular basis, never really questioned the price of the pints, however tonight they were either understaffed or the staff had better things to do than serve the customers! The bar was empty and it took over 15 minutes to be served.

Choose the golden pheasant on recommendations of friends I however thought it to be a dark dimly light place witch sells overrated overpriced pub food in small portions are they trying to hide something with the poor lighting?
