We stayed at the star inn but came to the Pheasant for our first evening to enjoy the taster menu. We decided to add the wine paring, a good decision. The food was marvellous, the service was great with the waitress who served us had an excellent knowledge of the wine and a very pleasing manner indeed. There were many courses to get through, each one was interesting, different and tasty. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We ordered the taster menu and were not disappointed. We will definitely be returning for an evening meal in the future.

We stayed for one night on a dinner bed and breakfast basis at the end of November 2011. The room was lovely - tasteful decor without overt opulence and there were lots of nice touches - a complimentary bottle of sloe gin for example. Being a pair of gluttons, we upgraded to the 7 course taster menu. The staff were extremely accommodating with our request to swap one of the sweet courses on the menu for an extra starter! The food was excellent from start to finish with highlights being the smoked mackerel mousse and the roast sirloin. The service was attentive and friendly without being stuffy and the very enjoyable dining experience was nicely rounded off with coffee and petit fours by the fabulous fire in the bar. On retiring to our room, we found our bed had been turned down and there were little gifts on the pillows. After a very comfortable and peaceful night, we enjoyed an excellent breakfast. There was plenty of choice, and served in the conservatory so we got to experience another part of the hotel. All in all, this was a really superb stay. The staff were pleasant and friendly and the food and ambience more than comparable to other, more expensive restaurants in the region. If I were forced to criticise, I would say that the bathroom wasn't quite as pleasant as the rest of the room and we we didn't get a chance to finish our pre-dinner drink before our starters arrived, but these minor points certainly did not mar our enjoyment of the experience. We will look forward to returning and anticipate the imminent award of a Michelin Star as this certainly seems deserved.

Came here for dinner as a birthday treat while staying in the area. Had been about a year ago, so knew they did a tasting menu and also a veggie tasting menu on request (why they don't advertise it, i don't know). Didn't think that the meal was as good as the last time we visited; portions seemed to have grown (which makes 8 courses a bit of an ordeal) and flavours were less sophisticated (the Jerusalem artichoke gratin was more like creme caramel - very sweet and sickly and the pomme anna dish was overly lemon flavoured). Had the wine parings too which were good value, apart from the cider, brandy and ginger ale combo which was undrinkable - a shame, since i really do like all three on their own. Not overly inspired by this re-visit and would try elsewhere next time.

We booked for one night, and stayed for 2. We has a cottage style apartment with 2 bedrooms, a kitchenette and a lounge with open log fire, which was most welcome as there was a lot of snow outside. We had our 2 Westies with us. The staff were most welcoming and the food was truly excellent. This was our second trip to the Pheasant and we will definitely return later this year.
