Good atmosphere, good food (when it arrives!), attentive service if you are a regular, not so if its your first time I guess. I've been a couple of times to The Pheasant and have always enjoyed good food and a pleasant atmosphere, albeit increasingly UKIP these days. I thought I would take my partner there for her first visit. The... More

The food in The Pheasant is always outstanding. Everything is home cooked and fresh. The atmosphere is great, it is always busy during lunchtimes so it is best to book. The staff are really lovely.

We went here for my Birthday lunch as we have eaten at the King William IV down the road on previous occasions and thought we'd try it. It was no mistake! We had a warm welcome from the licensees of this lovely country pub together with a welcoming roaring fire. There were some interesting dishes on the menu, including a... More

Pleasant surroundings. Interesting menu and excellent food. The day I visited only one member of staff was on duty due to illness and I was impressed by her calm manner and efficiency.

We had a most enjoyable meal cooked to order would def recommend the sea bass which was more like a whale in size and was the best I have ever tasted and the scampi my husband had was beautiful and fresh and a generous portion. Def visit again next time we are in the area

I have never been disappointed by a meal here. The food is traditional English food well cooked and there is a family feel about the place.

Lovely restaurant which has managed successfully to keep a traditional village pub feel about it. Service was friendly and efficient, and the food was excellent. Not sure how I feel about the 'no children' rule. It seems a shame not to welcome families (and outdated) but at the same time it's nice to be able to eat early without feeling... More
