Classical Countryside Setting

The Pheasant a classic village pub which was previously a farmhouse. We are surrounded by stunning countryside which is perfect for a Sunday stroll. Come and enjoy our fantastic Sunday roasts with our homemade fluffy Yorkshire puddings.

When the sun shines we have a very large patio area and gardens in which you can enjoy a refreshing drink and delicious meal; perfect for when you bring the whole family, as the children love the garden area.

We are also proud of our annual cider festival which we host during summer, it gets bigger and better every year!

You will find regulars enjoying an after-work pint and others enjoying a game of pool and darts. We pride ourselves on our relaxed but upbeat atmosphere.

We are happy to welcome you into our restaurant dining area - our cosy setting makes for the perfect place to enjoy a candle lit dinner (hint hint!).


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
