The Pheasant Inn
Great food and very good value for money. The service was excellent as well. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Whilst the food and the setting were very good, the service was poor.
The staff were pleasant and helpful, but there did not seem enough of them to deal with the number of customers.
We had to actually ask for everything, wine lists, table water,dessert menu and eventually everything took so long that our taxi arrived before we had time for coffee, although we'd been at our table for nearly 3 hours.
Great country pub and delightful staff. Really good food, too. Highly recommend.
Delicious food, very nicely presented. Friendly staff. Will come again.
Delicious food and good service made the evening very enjoyable
We had a slight problem with our Starter. It was handled very well and knocked off the bill.
We did seem to wait some while between Courses but they were very busy. On a Thursday lunch?
Also we were with old friends so it was not a problem for us.
A good luncheon.
Really good food
Service was excellent and the house wine was good
Good food with interesting specials. Would recommend to anyone as a great pub for lunch any day.
we've visited this pub for a few years now and have always had a good evening. My partner has gone Vegan this month and we visited on Saturday night as the website had a good vegan menu. He enjoyed the starter but it was missing the root vegetable crisps but he enjoyed the soup. However, the main course (tofu burger) was not very good at all. It wasn't a burger but slap of wet tofu. He complained and the waitress agreed it didn't look correct. Another member of staff come over to say someone else had also the same issue with their meal. They kindly took the course of our bill. It will not deter us from visiting again but if the restaurant is going to try and appeal to the Vegan dinners they really need to improve
Went with my in-laws, wife and son to celebrate our daughter's birthday - we had a fabulous evening. We had a lovely time - food was superb. Great Vegan menu. Service excellent and great value for money. No hesitation in recommending if you are looking for somewhere special to have a family celebration
OpenTable asked and we provided information that it was our anniversary but this had no impact on our meal and was not mentioned at any point. Not sure if this is down to The Pheasant or OpenTable though.
Rather mean helpings (especially the veg: 3 Brussels sprouts, halved, one small kale leaf, half a roast potato and a slice of celeriac) and the crayfish element of a first course ‘crayfish and smoked-salmon salad’ had run out by the time of our order at 1.15. Maybe it was it was a reduced, Sunday lunch menu, but it didn’t live up to reviews or my expectations.
Lovely country pub with a real ‘Racing’ feel
Superb gastro-pub; fantastic food; wonderful country-pub contemporary decor; efficient friendly service; easy access location from M4; reasonably priced too...ticks all the boxes and some! Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent meal from menu choice,the service and the food itself
We visited the Pheasant Inn for supper at the end of December. It was a very busy night but the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful; lovely young women. The food was delicious; my husband had soup and halibut and I had burrata salad and venison. There was a rather lovely Christmas pudding dessert special which we both enjoyed. The portions were on the smaller side for a pub, which was perfect for us because we'd been eating a lot over Christmas, so we could try everything without feeling stuffed. As it's a pub, some cutomers can drink quite a lot and get a bit loud even in the restauant, but this certainly doesn't reflect on the quality of the food or the staff.
First time. Really excellent fish & chips. Wonderful friendly, fast service. Tables a little crammed in certain places, but a good atmosphere, happy customers. Friendly local crowd at the bar. Very well run.
Centrally located and ideal for a family (of 9 +2 babes) re-union that is scattered over a 50 mile radius .
Booking and service on the day very helpful and courteous. Food and presentation excellent. With two small children, high chair age, staff very good. Overall performance could not be faulted. I have visited several times and had recommended you. All family very happy. Well done.
Food and staff were lovely. Very reasonably priced too.
This was an excellent restaurant, the food & service was great 5 stars
Thank you to all at the Pheasant for a wonderful Christmas lunch. Lovely, friendly staff. Always smiling and helpful. Fantastic food, beautiful surroundings and a lovely relaxed ambience . A lovely experience. I would thoroughly recommend.
Very good food in pleasant surroundings, very close to the M4 and so much better than a service station for a stop. Turns a dull journey into a pleasure.
Kelly, Bea and bar staff were all very welcoming & attentive to our needs - we will definitely be visiting again soon. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all at The Pheasant. Jason (Cirencester)
Excellent food, great atmosphere and lovely evening as always.
Excellent all round experience as usual. Thoroughly recommend to anyone.
Although busy and despite turning up slightly later than expected, the staff were exceptionally accommodating. Food was delicious and staff were always around to help and smiling. Had a great feel all round and would highly recommend this restaurant!
gorgeous meal in a lovely atmosphere - brilliant service too, my new fav!
Lovely place, easily found just off the M4. Great, attentive, staff. Menu is a little “fish focussed” with limited meat options. I had the burger which was pleasant enough.
Fabulous food and very friendly service. Would highly recommend
Very efficient, well trained staff who are attentive make certain that customers are well looked after.
The food was stunningly brilliant and beautifully presented. The quality of the fish and meat is outstanding whilst the vegetable are fresh and tasty.
I highly recommend the Pheasant but I suggest booking is essential.
Very friendly but efficient service. The food was excellent and the restaurant was warm and ambient. We’ll definitely be back.
Great food, good service, pleasant surroundings, lovely table for a long leisurely lunch with friends.
We booked a table for 5 for a Christmas Dinner and we were not advised that we needed to pre-book /order this in advance. On arrival we were given the same general menu. The staff arranged for 3 of our party who wanted Turkey to have it but it was pretty poor. The veg was limited , no carrots or Brussels, the spinach very lacklustre and no flavour and the roast potatoes were not very palatable. For the price it was not great. We ate because we were hungry and did not complain as the staff had tried to be helpful.
It’s such a shame because we love this place for warmth and it’s ambience but often the food and inexperience of the young staff lets this place down.
Excellent food and service...………..
Looking forward to returning
We all had fish and chips, which was tasty and well served. Staff were friendly and helpful. An improvement on our last visit - definitely worth the journey. We will be back.
This is a lovely venue - warm, comfortable and quirky and the service was prompt and friendly. The food was very good although my chicken schnitzel was a bit dry and I had a touch of meal envy with my friends whose fish dishes looked better. Could’ve used a bit more veg with my choice.
My friends’ cheese board was v impressive and my dessert was lovely.
Will definitely return.
A super lunch, lovely food and great attentive service. They couldn't have been more accommodating. It was my elderly Mothers birthday and they made it very special.
Been coming to the Pheasant for over 40 years. Never disappointed even when it has changed hands. Food is excellent, imaginative and always delivers. See you again soon Pheasant.
Love this pub wish we lived nearer the food /service is always outstanding
OUR FIRST VISIT TO THE PHEASANT INN, SHEFFORD WOODLANDS. THE BEST PUB FOOD I HAVE TASTED IN RECENT YEARS AND CERTAINLY THE BEST AROUND NEWBURY! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
