Very Pleasant stay at the Pheasant.. - Rating 5/5

I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay at The Pheasant, it was a small detour away from the major towns nearby where i had business appts with but well worth the few miles. The room I booked was excellent, modern, well appointed, comfortable and well thought out. Diana the host was really great and I felt well looked after. My evening meal and breakfast was outstanding and will definatley be booking again very soon - and do not hesitate to recommend them.

We recently stayed at The Pheasant, very friendly welcome from Diana, we had a complimentary glass of prosecco, then we were shown to our room, Captain Oates, amazing room, very spacious &spotlessly clean. Our evening dinner was just amazing, the whole menu was perfect for us &after much consideration, the starters we chose Liver Pate &homemade soup were very tasty &for mains I had pork belly &my wife had the Lamb, both amazing dishes, rarely do you find a restaurant where every course was just as good as the next, we had that at the Pheasant &the service was excellent too. Breakfast followed our comfy stay the next morning,a lovely full English breakfast perfectly cooked with quality ingredients &pastries &cheese/ham &cereals too. Needless to say we will be back, even if its only for sunday lunch, Diana is a very lucky lady cos boy can her hubby James cook!!

You are housed in a separate annex in themed rooms named after famous locals and we were in John Constable. The room was spotless and spacious with a four poster very comfortable bed. The bathroom had a large shower which we loved as we prefer showers to baths. Water was supplied daily and real milk which was in the fridge and also home made cookies. Lovely touches. Breakfast and evening meals are excellent cooked using locally sourced food. We would be more than happy to visit the Pheasant again.

Superlatives are required to describe this place it was that good. On our trip to East Anglia we stayed at two places that could not have been more different. The first a "luxury country house"in Norfolk that was anything but and this place which describes itself as a Pub restaurant but is much more than that. Indeed The Pheasant could justifiably use the word luxurious because it is so good. Welcoming, warm, clean, friendly, excellentmeals, great breakfast, luxurious accommodation and great value for money.Will go back and will recommend

Our 3 night stay at The Pheasant began with a warm welcome from Diana in their beautiful 500 year old pub. Our accommodation, which is only 4 years old and about 20 steps away, was clean, fresh, spacious and had lovely views of the countryside.We enjoyed delicious meals cooked be James each night, after exploring the local sights by day.

Service, food and accommodation - first class - Rating 5/5

My wife and I stayed with two friends for one night whilst passing through. The young lady who was behind the bar when we arrived was really welcoming and seemd to take pleasure in showing us to our room. I travel a lot with work and this is the FIRST time that the person showing me to my room has specifically asked if either of us is allergic to feathers and then replaced two down pillows with synthetic as we unpacked. The bar is also very welcoming and my wife and I both enjoyed the complimentary drink on arrival.Dinner selections were excellent too, the chef certainly knows how to prepare, cook and serve game and my wife found the mushrooms on ciabatta faultless.The wine list is as good as you'll find in any "gastropub"and the prices are extremely fair.The hospitalityeven extended to providing a full cooked breakfast an hour earlier than the kitchen usually opens because we had an early appointment to make.We will be finding an excuse to tour the area just so we can stay here again.

A contented guest - Rating 4/5

A really good establishment. Accomodation was excellent in Oates Suite with quality fittings and provided everything to accommodate my disability. The business is very much food led and was first class in terms of variety and quality.Under this format the scoring system will only grade 4 out of 5. Personally I would score it 4.5 out of 5.Because it is food led the wet trade is very much secondary. Our meal on the first night was great but it was unhelpful to be hurried away at the end of our meal as the table was booked out to another party. Particularly so as the premises were so busy that there was not even some where to sit for a nightcap.

Reviewer:Martin L | Wed 9th Apr 2014 | 6 years ago

Great Stay All Round - Rating 4/5

Very comfy room with thoughtful touches like REAL milk in the mini-fridge instead of the usual horrid UHT capsules. My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner and an excellent Argentinian Malbec - the wine list has been carefully put together by someone who knows what they're doing. This is pub food as it should be - the best local and fresh seasonalproduce, beautifully cooked. The Pheasant avoids the usual mistake of amny 'gourmet pubs' that try to do 'fine dining' and failing miserably. The food is spot on - my wife's fetta, fig &serrano ham salad was delicious and my home-made salman pate was light, fluffy and scrumptious. I had the best sirloin steak I've ever had and Debbi made short work of a very large cheeseboard. Puds looked fab, but we just could not have managed another bite! Staff were lovely, very friendly but also very professional 10/10 guys! Breakfast was fab too! If you're after a peaceful, country spot and a relaxed evening with great food, then The Pheasant delivers on it's promises. Recommended.

Overnight at the pheasant - Rating 4/5

What a great experience! We stayed here as a prelude to attending a family wedding at a local wedding venue.We arrived to a glass of prosecco and a warm welcome on a wet winters day.We were shown our room which was definitely boutique hotel style and very comfortable and warm.Having sorted ourselves into the room we went back inside the bar as we had booked for an evening meal.We were a little early but seated at our table straight away and the waitress couldn't have been more helpful.The food was really excellent and we over indulged with three courses plus dessert wine &c.We had a great nights sleep although had to open a window as it was slightly too hot in the room, not a bad side to err on though.( we probably should have mentioned this)Breakfast Next morning was just right and freshly cooked.We set off that morning feeling we had had a great experience with excellent accommodation and really good food.The wedding venue we went onto could do with some pointers from the Pheasant we later discovered....

Our trip from Lancashire to Essex for a wedding meant finding a B&B via the internet. We couldn't have stumbled upon a better choice and were amazed at the delicious dinner on arrival, lovely room and friendly welcome. We had the room with Access facilities (it was the only one left at the time of booking) and it was really well appointed and great for those with needs as well as those without - with French doors to the sunny terrace overlooking an enormous cornfield. I have been trying to think of an excuse to book all five rooms for a family gathering and dinner! A pity we are so far away - but if you are nearer, or coming for a special occasion or even a week, don't miss it. Thanks for making our weekend so memorable. We hope to return for longer.

A charming pub, family run, offering highest comfort in the well equiped rooms and a warm and friendly welcome. We came from Austria and we have been to many places before but this is one of the very best in whole UK.The pub is tastefully decorated with antique furniture and nice artwork. You can feel the atmosphere and history of the pub without having the dirt and dust of the last hundred years on the tables, the walls, the chairs and the floor as the bar and the restaurant has been looked after very well.The freshly cooked dinner made by the chef himself was excellent. So the breakfast with fresh fruits and even lovely English cheese.The room was decorated in moderen style, had an excellent bed and offered all the modern comfort (TV, Power Shower, WiFi) that is needed for a pleasent stay.Thank you for the warm welcome. We enjoyed the stay in this very dog friendly inn and we had lovely walks in the fields behind the inn.We´ll definitely come again.Kind regards, Michael + Renate (Klosterneuburg/Austria)
