Harden's survey result
Co-run by Jacquie Pern and head chef Peter Neville, this quintessential English country hotel, overlooking a duck pond, delivers âattractive platesâ of âtasty foodâ that continue to compete ratings-wise with its better-known neighbour (the Star Inn, run by Jacquieâs ex-husband Andrew).
This âidyllic hotelâ with âfood to die forâ was part of chef Andrew Pernâs Star Inn empire, and is now run by his former wife Jacquie following their split. âThe cooking is interesting, and lighter than at its better-known neighbour, but still full of flavourâ â and it consistently matches its ratings.
Itâs not as famous as The Star Inn, but Andrew Pernâs âotherâ establishment is favoured by some reviewers over its better known sibling: âa lovely traditional and very civilised settingâ (âlike being wrapped in a warm, woollen blanketâ) serving âtop class cuisineâ.
From its âvery helpfulâ service to its âvery goodâ food and excellent atmosphere (âa little Swiss chalet-styleâ in parts) thereâs no shortage of praise for this âlovelyâ establishment. As ever, fans insist that itâs âbetter than its more famous neighbour, The Star Innâ.
The Pheasant Hotel Restaurant Diner Reviews
"This as simply exceptional. Calves liver done in most interesting way, pheasant to dream of, all in a wonderful environment. Service combination of professional and warm and friendly. A favourite! "
"A most enjoyable three day stay at this excellent hotel in Yorkshire. Rooms, food etc were very good and Jacquie Pern's attention to detail and hospitality were second to none. An excellent establishment."
"The lovely setting, with the sun shining and the garden with its pond, puts the diner in a good mood to enjoy lunch which, here, is a serious step above pub food with a carefully prepared selection of dishes and an interesting wine list with a couple of notable English representatives. Our first courses, extremely tasty crab risotto and very good local asparagus with salmon, led into a satisfying rabbit pie and some wild sea bass with crispy skin and lovage veloutĂŠ. Our desserts were just as successful, an affogato that was almost criminally generous and presented with an extra dousing of strong coffee, and chocolate cake contrasted with olive oil ice cream and a slightly gingery Breton biscuit. Wine is clearly taken seriously to judge by the Coravin selection, but my red was served in a smudgy glass and the bottles not shown until I requested a new glass and to see the bottles. Nevertheless, very enjoyable and good value for money."
