We visited for lunch and enjoyed great food, well matched wine and superb service. I would definitely recommend a visit and leave yourself in the teams hands with the surprise menu and wine flight. Also impressive value.

The epitome of country dining, boasting a beautiful open fire and weathered floorboards, the Pheasant is now taking bookings for Christmas parties with a special menu of exquisite dishes designed for the winter months such as braised cheek of Hereford beef or a Ballotine of Gressingham duck. Menu's & wine lists are all available on line.
