“Wonderful setting”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is a wonderful peaceful location with multiple fabulous walks as soon as you exit the building.
The staff and locals are equally as friendly so there is no real excuse not to mingle.
We ate both nights in the restaurant and although it's clearly not gourmet food it's locally sourced and seasonal and well cooked.
The wine list was a little dated for my taste but a quick inspection showed that most other diners were taking advantage of the many real ales instead.
The website actually does not do the bedrooms justice, the room we had was very clean and light and a wonderfully finished bathroom...stunning views from all angles.
We shall return.

This was my second time at the Fox & Pheasant - this time I stayed for five nights. The location is superb, the rooms are tidy and clean, the food excellent and the beer is always very good. Sarah and Bill and the rest of the staff are always happy to help. In terms of location, the F&P is all you could ask for. The riverside walk is a delight. All in all, the F&P is the perfect country inn and great value.

Having stayed in a number of hotels, B&B's, etc I have never really been moved to write a review. However after booking the Fox and Pheasant for myself and two of my colleagues for a one evening stay, we were all so impressed, I feel the need to share a few words. The hotel is of excellent standard, reasonably priced and most importantly clean and well maintained. We ate in the restaurant and found the menu offered provided an excellent choice of both meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. I myself run a catering company and feel well placed to say the food was of high standard and plenty of it. The F&P offered a good selection of real ales, and although we found the drinks to be a little on the expensive side it would be churlish to say this affected our stay in any way. Well done keep on keeping on..............

I first started visiting this wonderful escape in the countryside a long time ago when it was called the Stable Bar and have over the years had the pleasure of going back. It has like very good wine improved as the years pass, especially when it comes to the food and I can second the previous reviewers appreciation of the Cumberland Sausage! It has a wonderful atmosphere and is well with a visit if you are in the area, indeed the whole area is worth visiting as it is beautiful with some lovely walks only a few minutes away along the Eden River.

A lovely "local" pub, serving excellent food at very reasonable prices - a huge choice on the menu - the local Cumberland sausage was superb!

Service is with the best smiles and everyone was so friendly - log fires, excellent beer, what more could you ask for?

"I can see the review on Trip Advisor now! Mad Landlady walks through the pub with an inflatable shark" she said as she wandered past our table with a huge inflatable shark. And so here it is!! We stayed locally just outside the village and the pub was recommended by our hosts. We loved the furnishings and the open fire and It was so good we ate there every evening. Friendly Landlady and staff, prompt service and reasonably priced, good quality food. The portions were quite large and very nearly defeated my husband (which takes some doing). The pub serves a good choice of meals and also has a hot drinks menu for those wishing for something non alcoholic. Also unlike some pubs, the locals don't stare when you walk in and made us feel quite welcome. We will definitely be visiting again very soon.
