We were renting a cottage nearby and booked Sunday lunch here. The menu has a good selection of meat and fish. We had lamb roast and a game pie. The food was really really good. It's all pretty traditional and plain-this isn't a criticism at all. The veg wasn't over cooked. The lamb was so moist and tasty. Puddings included... More

Superb find on way to Jedburgh....... Cask Ale perfect. Food uncomplicated, local,fresh, say no more..... a kitchen not run around a deep fat fryer and a microwave! Sweets.... Well I had the bread and butter pudding. Best I've ever had!!! My only minor grumble would be the lack of back ground music although this may take away the one thing... More

My husband and I chose to stay at 'The Pheasant' whilst visiting the Kielder Observatory'. What a find, we couldn't praise the place more highly. Our room just off the courtyard was perfect, very clean and bathroom very spacious. The staff were very friendly and the meals superb. The only blight on our trip was that it was very cloudy...

Recommended by a friend and I recommend to you. Pheasant is family owned and run. Stannersburn is on edge of Kielder water with walks/cycle paths and multiple activity options close by. Skies are extremely dark in best place for no light pollution. Stannersburn is about 6 houses and the Pheasant. Full rooms and dining room speak for themselves. Food is... More

Excellent accommodation. Very friendly staff. Meals first class - roast lamb was beautiful. Best pint John Smiths bitter I have had in a long time. Will recommend this to my friends if they are visiting Kielder forest.

Thank you for taking time to leave us a review. The observatory busy season is now getting into full swing and we have lots of guests coming and going at all hours. The Sow Roasted Northumbrian Lamb is perhaps our best selling dish and a great locally sourced ingredient. Hope to see you back someday. More
