Lovely owners. Very large modern comfortable room overlooking fields. Stayed 2 nights & ate in restaurant both nights. Food excellent. Homemade chocolate chip cookies in room a nice touch. Rooms were themed to local famous people & we were in the Oates room.

My partner and I have just returned from a wonderful stay. Our room, The Thomas Gainsborough was magnificent, very spacious and clean, outstanding food (would recommend the pork belly) and service. We will definitely be returning again soon. Thank you.

My wife and I stayed here yesterday, and I can truly say that it was a pleasure to stay at such a great hotel. The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. Diane and her husband really made us feel so welcome- nothing was too much trouble for them. The room we stayed in (John Constable) was fantastic. There...

We stayed here for our anniversary and were not disappointed. Our room was the Thomas Gainsborough Room on the ground floor which has a huge bed, big bathroom and a walk in shower with a fixed shower head which when you are small is not so good. It would have been lovely if there had been a bath, there is...

Old hostelry which is now mainly a restaurant with adjoining coach house converted in recent years to create 5 bedrooms. We had the Stuart Courtauld room on the first floor overlooking open Essex countryside, all nicely decorated and furnished in character with the property with a very modern en suite with walk in shower. Dinner on both evenings was enjoyable...

My wife and I have stayed at The Pheasant three times and each time it has been top notch. I would highly recommend The Pheasant to those who want to stay in a lovely room, have fabulous food and enjoy a warm welcome. The pork belly is the best I have eaten anywhere and the food in general is fantastic....

We booked through secret escapes and, like others were looking forward to a 'boutique hotel' experience. We were greeted with a warm welcome and a drink, all very lovely and promising. It was an anniversary celebration so we booked the 'suite'. Quite disappointing indeed. The bathroom needs redoing- a bath would be nice! Some nice touches in the room however...

We visited for our anniversary weekend and were not disappointed. Immediately on arrival, we were welcomed with our prosecco and cream tea and shown to our room - the Constable. The room was very nicely done with an extremely comfortable four poster bed. There was also a large shower but the water was stubborn to drain meaning showers had to...
