The Pheasant changed hands just before Christmas which came as a surprise, however the new people are very friendly and nothing had noticeably changed in the pub.

Last minute Sunday lunch visit today. The Sunday lunch set menu offered three courses for £12.95 which we felt was excellent value, especially in relation to the quality of the food. We both chose the pate for a starter which came out with a dressed salad leaves and warm bread which was lovely. For our mains we opted for the... More

Great, humble family friendly country pub with fantastic home cooked food. Had starters which came quickly and we're very tastey. Mains also, again came quickly and I ordered the steak, which was phenomenal, cooked perfectly and when we finished I complemented the quality and tenderness of the beef. I asked where they get that from and they replied "it's just... More

The food is excellent and the service is always very good, it can get busy so I would recommend booking in advance if you can. The specials are very good value for the quality... More
