How glad we were when we booked a night's accommodation at the Pheasant Inn before we left home, I doubt we would have discovered it without Sawday's. On arrival with damp, cloudy weather beginning to cluster around the area, our entry through the door was met with a wonderful warm greeting followed by a superb lunch and drinks. Our room was clean and comfortable and after leaving our luggage we drove to Kielder Water to view its vistas and facilities.

The highlight of our visit was dinner. Served in a pleasant restaurant with other amicable guests the food was excellent and the awards collected by the Inn certainly lived up to the quality of the food. All the staff were friendly with nothing too much trouble; as guests we were made to feel very welcome, and this level of service never faultered throughout our stay. To say the breakfast was ok would not suffice. Better to say it was excellent, with all possible choices and quality local produce in the hands of attentive cooks, what we consumed brought vast smiles contented tums and, you know, that wonderful warm feeling.

It was a sad moment when we drove away to continue our trip of Northumberland's magical scenery, our memories of the Pheasant Inn, Stannersburn will remain the height of the trip; a magical and enchanting establishment.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are quiet and look out to a grassed courtyard

Just got home after a 6 hour drive and must say i would turn around and drive straight back if I could get time off work. The Pheasant Inn was exactly as i remembered from 5 years earlier, the staff I knew remembered me and the staff I didnt were friendly, polite and welcoming. We had 2 rooms with 3 dogs, both dog friendly rooms were extremely clean and spacious with large bathrooms and hallways. Ideal to leave the dogs in when you go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Which we did everyday in the pub. The food was fantastic with great choice, well presented and ample portions. The breakfast has probably the best choice and best quality of food in the North. I asked for a full english which arrived cooked to perfection in minutes. The dining room was beautiful, well lit and welcoming, as was the bar with an open fire and great choice of beer, ales and a collection of whisky second to none. Staff had time for a chat and drink and the whole trip was a pleasure. The pheasant is in an ideallic spot and close to Kielder dam and village. Will be back this year without doubt.

Room Tip: If you have more than one dog choose room 7 which has the biggest hallway/bathroom ideal to leave th...

A first visit to The Pheasant Inn and will certainly be returning and recommending it to family and friends. The accommodation and food were excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the area is stunning. The Pheasant Inn is an ideal base for visiting Kielder water and Kielder forest. Thank you to all of The Pheasant Inn team for making our stay so good.

During a trip to Kielder Water I encountered a number of locals who wholeheartedly recommended the Pheasant Inn and I always respect local opinion.
Five of us went including my Grandson and I must say the food was excellent, service was warm, relaxed and friendly. If you want somewhere to eat in the area you owe yourself a trip to The Pheasant Inn.

A huge thank you to Robin and Angela and all the staff at this Inn. The food was stunning, the accommodation delightful and a really warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly be back to sample some more of the fantastic hospitality.
