Loved the inn. From the welcome to the goodbye, staff were fantastic. Room was cosy and warm , lovely modern bathroom Views amazing and the walks were very special. The roast beef was really good. Very filling breakfast.

Terrific place to stay !

Visiting Kielder Observatory late one Monday evening so was looking for somewhere local to stay and researched the hotel to find glowing reports on the food and accommodation - they weren`t wrong ! We wanted to stay 2 nights but only one available but the twin beds were put together to create one enormous bed in room 4 ( upstairs and adjacent to the Inn ) so we had our own access when returning late from our Dark Sky event. The room was immaculate and we dined early and both had the lamb which was terrific followed the next morning by a wonderful Cumbrian breakfast. It was a shame to leave and found the staff very friendly and welcoming so definitely would return when next staying in the area.

Great food, great staff, fantastic settin

We had a four-night stay here, as part of our ongoing discovery of Northumberland, and, sorry to be boring, we are giving the place yet another excellent review. The food is wonderful. We arrived just after lunch service and another customer, just leaving, said, "Have the lamb!" and walked on. Looked like he was in ecstasy. But he was right - have the lamb! We ate here every night of our stay, there is nowhere else in walking distance on a dark night, and every meal was excellent. Breakfasts were great too. My other half hates getting up in the morning so she would have preferred breakfast service to go on a bit later, but I am an early bird, and breakfast time can be an issue at home too! The staff, without exception, were just lovely. Robin, the boss, joined the dining room for a chat after dinner too, which reminded me of little French hotels. Nothing corporate here! He lent pliers and advice when I had a minor car problem (damn, there goes my anonymity!). The rooms were very good, with great views, showers excellent, and WiFi coverage very good also. But, honestly, you don't want WiFi in such a lovely place. Get out and enjoy it. Thanks again, Robin and team.

Lovely Country Inn

Fab food, cosy rooms, comfy bed, wonderful location and staff. Stay time and time again. Visited with French friends who thoroughly enjoyed the Englishness of The Pheasant, particularly the beer and the full English breakfast perfectly cooked.

A nice traditional pub

My family and I ate at the pheasant inn before going to the observatory for a stargazing experience. The food was amazing and even better as it was locally sourced. I had the beef which was really nice (not to overcooked). The chairs were different sizes to the bench so some people were higher up than others which wasn't ideal. The wifi, once connected was very poor. Overall it was a very nice and traditional pub that i would recomend going to.
