“Not great value for money”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Stayed here for one night recently and felt the room was very over priced. Very cramped little twin room with an extremely creeky floor. The shower was awful, took me 15 minutes to get a temperture that suited and then after 2 minutes it changed all on its own. Paying three figures for a room you really do expected better than this.
On the plus side the food was fantastic and the range of beers were excellent.
I would go back to eat but I would not be back to stay.

This is an excellent inn for those wishing to enjoy the splendid Cheshire countryside. It is ideal for visits to the Candle and Ice cream factories and trips to Chester and Liverpool.
The Inn provides excellent accommodation and dining.
It is an ideal stop-over for those walking the Sandstone Trail, but not wishing to complete the 33 miles in one go. The inn is approximately half way on the trail.
I completed the walk with a friend in June and and we arrived at the inn at 19.00, worn out after a hard day. The staff could not have been more accommodating. A barman carried my rucksack to our room, without being asked and later came over with two jugs of iced water.
I would highly recommend the Pheasant.

As a local resident my husband and I had avoided the Pheasant of late after having had two very mediocre meals earlier in the year. But feeling the need to have someone else do the cooking for a change, we ventured "back up the hill".

Fortunately we were not to be disappointed at all. The food was totally excellent and cooked to perfection, especially my husband's duck breast that was cooked perfectly pink and was both moist and tender. My chicken breast was equally delicious and both meals were artfully presented, in a manner that you would expect from a high end restaurant.

Furthermore we were warmly greeted by Sam and it was a pleasure to see him back at the helm. Notably for us, was how much smoother the evening was with Sam overseeing the kitchen and the bar staff. All in all, business as it should be and not how it has been recently.

We went here after an activity afternoon and it was a great find. The beer gardens offered amazing views, the pub was very clean and beautifully presented. We ordered burgers and salads and everyone enjoyed these and the prices were no different to most other 'pub grub' establishments: but the quality was exceptional. Small touches like putting a strawberry in a fruit cider made this place somewhere I would recommend to anyone. Would love to go back and stay over.

Revisited after 25 year gap, v friendly welcome in v attractive pub with lots of different places to sit both indoors and outdoors. My wife ate fish goujons in a brioche bun which she said was v good. I had a chicken Caesar salad in a roll which was a little odd in that it was in a creamy sauce but quite tasty. The best bit was the fantastic view and sitting eating our food in the sunshine looking over rural Cheshire was wonderful. Strongly recommend but maybe not the chicken Caesar salad in a bun!!
