This was an excellent venue for our PTA Curry/Quizz night. The upstairs room was a perfect size to accommodate our party of 100 comfortably yet creating a cosy, friendly atmosphere. The curry provided was very tasty and the staff were extremely helpful. A microphone was supplied for our use on the night and a chair was found for everyone. A... More

Came here for a second time in the great hope that it would be as good as the first visit. Sadly it was not. The steak I had was cooked really badly and was not of great quality and frankly I left really rather disappointed. Shame because it is a nice place to relax and eat but the food this... More

The Pheasant was busy so we couldn't book a later time. But we all really enjoyed our meal - all three courses. Service was good and the general 'rural' atmosphere very nice. This place is a real gem - set the satnav and you'll find it! Just one thing - one diner had gravy or some liquid in the main... More

Me and the fiancé went here on Monday night for the steak value meal which we never even ended up with as there was no mention of it. We placed the order and waited on the starter, it was cold but thought we would let it go. We had both ordered steaks with pepper sauce and sides. My fiancé had... More

Sunday roast. Beef grizzly potatoes over cooked, not burnt but could have done with a steak knife to cut into them. Manchester tart to die for mmmmmmm could have done with a bigger portion.

i think the steak dinner for 2 is very good value and I enjoyed the dinner. Every time I go to this restaurant, my only complaint is that they are somewhat slow in the service.

Hi Reginald, we are very happy to hear that you enjoy our steak offers and other offerings on the menu. We can only apologise that you find the service a little slow - our food is cooked fresh to order and just depending on the volume of customers we have in, waiting time can sometimes take a little longer.
