What the press says about The Pheasant Inn

Below is a selection of reviews published in the press. You might also be interested to read what our customers say about us.


We decided to finish our walk around Beeston and Peckforton castles with a late lunch at the Pheasant Inn. The standard of both food and customer service is always exemplary and this visit was no different. Despite being really busy, there was no compromise on service and although we were an hour late (sorry!) the team still managed to squeeze us in (and our two large dogs) with no fuss. The cosy festive atmosphere was really welcoming after a two hour walk and our meals were all perfect as always. Thanks for today and thanks for a fabulous 50th birthday party! We'll be back soon.....

Review by Emma Mayoh, Cheshire Life:

Style of venue The award-winning country pub, which dates back to 1650, is traditional, cosy and elegant with spectacular, panoramic views. It's popular with everyone from walkers and local farmers to wedding parties and other social occasions. It is a Michelin Good Pub venue as well as featuring in an Egon Ronay guide.

On the menu Traditional yet sophisticated English food. The portions are generous and feature things like a 28-day aged Bowland 12oz rib-eye steak to North Sea haddock in beer batter. Try the smoked haddock and leek tart (£4.95) for starter or the sautéed chilli and garlic king prawns and calamari with lime mayonnaise (£6.95). Bring your appetite for both the lamb rump with black pudding potato cake (£15.25) and the home made chilli con carne with home made tortilla chips (£10.75).

Décor Large, but cosy feeling with plenty of quiet corners to enjoy that great view.

Ambience Friendly, welcoming and lively. It's advisable to reserve a table during the week but essential at weekends. 

Service Excellent. Staff are attentive, talkative and friendly but not intrusive.

Cost My friend and I enjoyed two courses - the ample portions were too much to leave room for a dessert - plus soft drinks and coffee for just over £55. If you are not driving there is an extensive wine list and impressive choice of cask ales - The Pheasant features in the Good Beer Guide and was named CAMRA's Pub of the Season in 2007.

Suitability for entertainment Ideal for large groups and intimate dinners. Even better for al fresco dining.

Now is the perfect time for al-fresco dining, so we thought we'd share a delicious BBQ chilli, ginger and lime marinade with you.
