The Pheasantry is a lovely barn conversion to brewery and restaurant, very tastefully done and in a lovely location.
This was my second visit, this time for Sunday lunch. Service started off very well, welcoming smiles etc and quick to take our orders for drinks and food. Nice menu however would have liked to have seen a few of the regular in week items on there as well such as their superb burgers to suit younger family members, instead we were restricted to the few items on the Sunday menu.
Food beautifully presented, however the samphire with my rather small sea bream fillet had been pan fried which made it very woody and difficult to chew - personally I think samphire should be steamed. The roast beef, was I am told lovely, slightly rare, and the chicken breast with stilton and asparagus was well received too.
Unfortunately service then became very slow and after quite some time I had to ask for the desert menu consequently our deserts were very slow to arrive and then didn't arrive together. Strawberries with chantilly cream and shortbread very disappointing, far too much vanilla and my shortbread was under cooked and far too thick, this overpowered the few strawberries I had. This is prime local strawberry season and I really feel this could have been better on several angles.
All in all a lovely place, nice menu but a bit overpriced for what we experienced on this occasion
