Where our food comes from….. At the Pheasant we have a 1 acre vegetable garden, which is situated across the road from the pub, where we grow some of our fruit and vegetables to use in our kitchen, such as raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, whitecurrants, leeks, onion, garlic, shallots, fennel, artichokes, various lettuces, courgettes, beetroot, cabbages, rhubarb, sorrel and various herbs. We mainly grow the unusual varieties, that we cannot source from our supplier. Our potatoes are grown at Wormingford, 10 miles away, as we can go through 10 sacks per week, regularly peeling potatoes, for chips, mash and roasties for Sunday lunch.

We are not fully sustainable, so still have to buy in fresh fruit and vegetables each day,
but do ask a member of staff to find out what we have on the menu from the garden.

We receive a fresh fish delivery 3 or 4 times a week and have fish sourced from day boats
off the British Isles, such as Skate Wing , Sea Bass, Sardines, & Gurnard from the South Coast and other unusual fish that is sustainably caught.

We do have a Smoke house and James smokes, Haddock & Salmon for breakfast,
Shell-on Prawns, Scallops and Cashew Nuts, and Pressed Rapeseed Oil which we use in cooking, which is grown in Bures.

Our duck is from the well known Gressingham breed which is now produced from a family
business in Suffolk and we think is the best duck around.

Our ice cream is from Jane Hadley at Colne Engaine 10 miles away. Jane has won
numerous awards for her ice cream and we think no one can make it better!

Cheese from Hamish Johnston, we supply mainly British cheeses on our menu, as they are so good, such as Cropwell Bishop Blue, Somerset Brie, Shipcord from Ipswich, Suffolk Blue from Coddenham, Cotehill Blue from Lincoln. The only cheese that is from France is the Goats Cheese which is so delicate in flavour, you will love it.

Our coffee is supplied by Patrick Vinck who owns The Whitechapel Coffee Company in London, who roasts his coffee on a farm in Essex. He has produced a special blend for the
Pheasant which we have personally selected.

Our beers on tap, our Adnams which is a well known Suffolk Brewery from Southwold and our own Pheasant Bitter which is brewed from Woodfords from Norfolk. We usually have another guest ale on tap, which we like to source from micro breweries from around the country.

We have Harry Sparrow Aspall Cider from Suffolk and Meantime Pilsner Lager which is from a small brewery in Greenwich, hence the name “Meantime”.

Our wine is supplied by Mark Soudah owner of Grape Passions at Tiptree in Essex.
A husband and wife team, that has supplied the Pheasant for the last 5 or 6 years, Mark meets all the wine growers and sources from small family vineyards, please ask for a recommendation.

Our soft drinks range comes from Assington Fruit Farm which is about 6 miles down the road, fresh apple juice with no additives or extra sugar.
