“Great Party Venue, Great Food, Great Place to Stay.....”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We had my Wife's birthday party at the Golden Pheasant on Saturday night and we stayed over. The whole experience was absolutely fantastic! Richard and his team we all amazing, Carolyn in particular was tremendous as was Amy & Lorraine. The venue is stunning, the food was amazing and all the guests commented on its quality!. The rooms we stayed in were very reasonably priced but were also fab ( we had a four poster!) So, great party, Great stay over and not too mentioned the very tasty belly busting brekkie!...

All in all Richard and his team need to be very very proud of what they have created at the Golden Pheasant. We will be back many many times. I will be singing its praises to everyone i know!! As im sure all of the guests from the party will.

Thanks again Richard and the Team!

We stayed for one night with our two young children in a large room with a four poster bed and two camp beds for the kids and there was still plenty of space!
Everyone was very welcoming and friendly, both when we arrived and the following morning. Good beer (J.W. Lees) and food in the evening, and the breakfast was good as well. They were very accommodating with the kids.
I couldn't fault the cleaniness. The towels were beautiful and fluffy. Good quality biscuits and even a proper teapot in the room. The only small niggle is that there were only two teacups in the room, although I am sure had I realised and asked for some more there would have been no problem. As it was, the kids had hot chocolate in the morning and the grown-ups just waited until breakfast.

We have eaten here twice recently as a family group. The staff are friendly and they give you a warm welcome. The atmosphere is fantastic, its nestled away from the maddening crowds. They serve a delicious selection of food at good prices. We would certainly recommend it and will be going again.

Thanks to Richard and his team for yet another great stay at the Golden Pheasant.

The location is super ( close to M6 and a stones throw to the railway station), decor is tasteful , food is out of this world. (It actually has flavour!) and the real ale delightful.

Highly recommended and you will be sure to get a warm friendly welcome from the team.

After having been to the Golden Pheasent a couple of times over the summer months, once to eat alfresco on a lovely summers day ,where we had an extremely tasty sandwich served by friendly helpfull staff ,and once for a very enjoyable beautifully presented meal in an evening, we decided to take friends along for new years eve. We were greated and shown to our table by a very smartly dressed manager , the restaurent has many interesting antiques and pieces of furniture which adds to the elegant surroundings.The food was beautifully presented and plenty of it !! therefore in my opinion value for money when you compare to the size of portions in these so called "trendy restaurents" . my soup was hot and stayed hot till i got to the bottom of the dish , which on a cold night went down really well. The rest of the meal was beautifull and our friends wer equally impressed and infact one of them is in catering and couldnt get over the quality of the food.All in all, had a superb meal in lovely surroundings , served by friendly helpfull staff.What more could you want ? will definately retun very soon .

We visited the Golden Pheasant one summers evening just before I was going away for a while. Meal and atmosphere was fantastic, plenty of food, reasonably priced and the place is just really well laid out.
Only slight niggle was time if took to be severed and seen too. Would certainly go again in the future

We visited the golden pheasant on saturday night for the first time in 5 years having been told its much improved from friends. Our welcome was understated having watched the bar staff more interested in their phones than customer service! But the young girl soon changed our minds by apologising and quickly serving our drinks and directing us to our table in a lovely restaurant with linen table cloths and napkins (a rareity these days). The waiter with the pink shirt served us (the mention of the shirt colour of the waiter will soon become apparent), he was very polite and gave us our menus and said he'll be back to take our order in a few minutes. When he came to take the order I asked if he would recommend anything to which he replied the beef madras was lovely, so myself and my husband had it (delightful!) Well recommended! Our friends had fish and chips and pork fillet which I was informed came highly recommended. When we finished our plates were cleared by another waiter this time in a dark shirt, with I think they call it designer stubble but I call it scruffy! His attitude left a lot to be desired, boredering on rude, but most definately arrogant springs to mind! When half of our dishes were cleared he came back to finish grumpily and begrudgingly clear our table. (If he is the apitomism of customer service, I recommend not to be served by him!) The first came back to take our dessert and coffee order and the thought and attitude of second was once again banished from our minds. When we asked the first waiter for our bill he brought it back with 4 mints and a smile and hoped everything had been to our satisfaction. When coming to pay the second waiter re appeared and leant against the wooden post in a slouchy manner as if he were in his kitchen at home (you know what I mean)! Took our payment without a thanks or a goodnight. Quite frankly THE WORST waiter I have ever come across! Would I visit again? Yes but only if I wasn't served by waiter number 2! I must add there was 2 other waiters working, a tall one (very polite and attentive) but didn't have much contact with and a smaller one who only collected glasses so have no comment to make. A mixed night made good by waiter number one and the young girl on the bar, but waiter number 2 definitely needs to go back to customer service school!
