“Our trip to the Fox and Pheasant”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We travelled down south for a family wedding in Ainstable and found this brilliant hotel nearby where we had a brilliant stay hosted by friendly staff, top class rooms and 5 star food. We would love to stay here at any chance we can and will hopefully get more chance next time to appreciate the local facilities. The mobile phone reception wasn't brilliant but we didn't go down there to spend the weekend texting or phoning or going on Facebook. We have posted a few pics on our Facebook to promote a hotel and restaurant we would recommend to anybody. Great room, top food and drink and superb location. Hard to beat all round :o)

Comfortable double room with lovely tranquil view over river valley. Food very good with plenty of choice. Welcoming and friendly staff. Better than many 4/5* establishments. Two day break excellent value. Will be back.

Room Tip: front rooms have the view

Our twin-bedded room was large, bright and spacious and had a delightful old fireplace positioned off-centre, as part of the original room, which must have been huge, had been claimed to form an en suite bathroom. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the white bed linen spotlessly clean, as indeed was the room itself.

The bathroom was good sized and the fittings and fixtures, which appeared to be new, were sparkling clean. We did not expect anything more than bath towels and were delighted to find thick bath sheets, with matching hand towels, both as white and fresh as the bed linen.

This inn has a very good reputation for its food and the menu is extensive. As residents, a table for dinner was reserved for us, otherwise we may have had a long wait for one; such is the popularity of this place which serves food in very generous portions.

Our two night stay at the Fox & Pheasant in June was one of the highlights of our UK holiday. We are in the hospitality business in South Africa and expect really high standards but the Fox & Pheasant was absolutely EVERYTHING we would expect from an English Country Inn and more. Billy and Sarah are the perfect hosts, the bedrooms are well-equipped & beautifully decorated, the cosy Pub has a great atmosphere (and even friendly locals!), the restaurant oozes character and the food is simply outstanding. The attractive setting on the River Eden provided lovely riverside walks each evening - just the thing to build up an appetite. We have told all our UK family & friends about this lovely Inn and cannot recommend it highly enough.

Last night was our first visit to this charming welcoming pub.Generous portions of freshly cooked delicious food served by excellent staff.The home made banoffee pie and ginger sponge and custard were mouthwatering.Definitely worth adding to our growing list of worthwhile eating establishments.

We stayed here whilst attending a wedding in a neighbouring village. The rooms were modern and well decorated with lovely views onto the river. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and the food was delicious and very good portions sizes too. The breakfast was the same if you had a hot breakfast it was a very good size and could pick and choose what you wanted. also you could have breakfast up until 10 which meant we had a good lie in. Couldn't fault and would recommend to stay here, especially with the inclusion of the 3 course meal in the price.

We go here often for a special occasion as it is a bit out of the way for us. Excellent menu with really good, tasty food with lovely fresh ingredients. Always nice, helpful staff whether we go as a couple or with the whole family. Really great old pub atmosphere, would definitely recommend it.
