The Pheasant is a small country pub with beams running across the ceiling and the dining area is spread across three rooms with an archway between.. Recently re-decorated with homely and comforting upholstery, each room has a welcoming wood burner to keep the winter chill at bay and there’s a genuinely homely feel about the place, with its natural wood tables and plenty of interesting reading matter within arms reach.

There are raised vegetable beds to provide the fruit and vegetables for the restaurant, all organic, such as various tomatoes, which have been grown from seed. In addition, James keeps Bees and uses some of his honey for dressings and salads in his recipes.
