The Lion and Pheasant has a cosy ambience, lovely pastel grey and wood furnishings, and music playing but not too loud. The service was friendly and efficent, and the menu was supplemented with warm bread accompanied by a delicious homemade herb butter, and then an amuse-bouche of a soupy thing. Our chosen dishes surpassed our expectations - we thought they were all worthy of a Michelin star! We willl be back soon.

The food was well prepared, imaginative and well presented. Portion sizes were designed so that three courses were possible. The service was discretely attentive. An excellent meal!

Often pop in here for lunch. Never tried dinner....but lunch is always good - mostly because the service is so attentive. Igor and Ionelia are excellent. Always smiling, attentive and efficient. Nice atmosphere, good beer and wine. Nice menu.

The evening did not get off to a good start . A warm welcome at the bar, can I get you a drink said the barman then when your table is ready we will call you through. No problem but 20 minutes later no call, so visit to the bar, shown to the table 20 minutes later sitting at the table being ignored another call for service.
After that the food and service was impeccable , the food was to a standard very rarely achieved outside a Michelin star restaurant.
We will return soon and hope that the initial service improves we were not the only people to complain about being kept waiting and saying they are very busy is not an excuse for poor management.
However great food and a nice atmosphere made for a great evening out.

This was a very nice hotel where we had a very excellent dinner. The hotel had such a narrow driveway that we were told to pull into the parking area across the street, turn around, and approach it from the other angle. We actually tried to book a room for the next night so we could have another excellent dinner, but they were fully booked.
