#19 of 75 B&Bs / Inns in Chester
Tucked in a peaceful corner of rural Cheshire, The Pheasant enjoys some the most magnificent panoramic views across the Cheshire plains. Delightful 300 year old sandstone buildings, open log fires, a flower-filled courtyard for drinks as the sun goes down - they all add up to magic. Nestling in the Peckforton Hills, this is a rambler's and hiker's paradise. A relaxing country retreat to escape from the hustle of city life or for a romantic weekend.

I was very upset by the attitude of the Manager when trying to book a table for a party of four outside. I explained the health reasons for requiring an outside table with a straw roof for an 86 year old disabled member of the party but was told repeatedly that it was not possible and those were the rules.

I booked a 2 night stay 14th to 16th July 2021 as a surprise for my husband to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We have been visiting the Pheasant now for over 15 years and celebrated many special family meals there over the years. I decided it would be nice to book an overnight stay as we had always wanted to stay over and always admired the rooms as we left the premises. We did enjoy the wonderful views from the terrace, food and helpful and courteous staff however the room was extremely disappointing. We were allocated the Carden room, a very dark and quite shabby room with awful lighting together with a very old and tatty sofa. It wasn’t particularly clean and there was no housekeeping provided during the whole of our stay -the bin was literally overflowing as we left and dirty towels still on the bathroom floor. Not what I expect for a deluxe room costing over £300. The stairs were very narrow and dark up to the room and my husband had to take our luggage into the room via the window, passing the back of the kitchens via a very unkept area. The decking outside our room was dirty and hardly a garden view as described. I didn’t speak to reception as I know there were no alternative rooms available, due to the high occupancy that week. The stay could have been perfect, and we do feel so disappointed I that the room was nowhere near the standards we expect from the Pheasant. This really did spoil a very special occasion. Sadly, I did contact the Pheasant on 2 occasions since we returned regarding my disappointment however I have yet to receive a reply.

Although the bedroom looked well equipped it was poor in the hot weather. The bed was not wide enough; there was no fan for cooling; there was no bottled water. And the staff refused to serve breakfast at one of the outside tables few yards from the dining area on a glorious morning. Apparently, this vast extra distance of maybe five yards caused massive service issues that clearly outweighed any hospitality benefit that we might have enjoyed as guests.

First let me say that this is an excellent quality, premium destination food pub, with excellent food, good drinks choice, great service, parking and the best location possible with views across the Cheshire plain towards Chester and beyond. Our visit was a glorious day and you could Liverpool’s cathedrals in the distance. The terrace at the front of the pub is the best place, but the garden is also comfortable and attractive although on a slope so those who are unsteady on their feet (like my elderly parents) may need assistance. Everything about the place is excellent but my own complaint would be the shameful profiteering practiced for some products. I know pubs have to make a good GP to service their overheads, and as I work in finance for a free trade brewer I am fully aware of this, but to charge £4.70 for a bottle of alcohol free beer that probably cost less than £1 a bottle to buy (it’s £1 in Sainsbury’s) is a little OTT in my book. A pint of Weetmans Bitter was less than my 330 ml bottle of alcohol free. This seems unfair on sensible drivers and opportunist. They should be encouraging this option not penalising us. I can understand PPLs and FABs being premiumised but why alcohol free? This group will benefit from large discounts from their supplier so there is no need to profiteer. Other than this is was a good visit, but this has left a bad taste (in more ways than one).

I treated my mum and dad to a night away last night.I am really pleased I chose the pheasant inn.my mum took her dog.We all loved every minute of it.The food is simply stunning,the afternoon snacks,evening dinner and breakfast all surpassed my expectations.The staff are very professional indeed and couldn't do enough for us.The views are exceptional.The bedrooms are beautiful with very high quality beds and bedding.My dad is 74 and doesn't like venturing away from the comfort of his own house and it's quite a task to get him to go anywhere.He absolutely loved the pheasant inn.We can't wait to introduce other members of our family to this hidden gem.100/100 I actually can't find anything bad to say about the place.Well done all staff see you soon
