Nice country pub

Gill S, Sunderland, United Kingdom
Ate here as we were staying close by and visiting Kielder observatory. The staff were lovely and we enjoyed our food. It's not your typical pub food ie no scampi and chips etc but that is not a criticism. We all had slow roast lamb and it was beautiful. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is my ham hock starter was a bit disappointing. We would definitely eat here again.

Dark skies experience

terryd443, Sunderland
Unfortunately only used the hotel as a place to stay so didn’t get a chance to sample the beers and atmosphere. Very comfortable room, slept well nice and quiet peaceful. Brilliant breakfast taken at leisure, no hurry! Hopefully be back later in the year and will make it a 2 night stay to see the stars one night and try the beers the other night. Very hospitable friendly staff. Thank you

Little Gem

A welcome in

devoniantoper, Beverley, United Kingdom
Kielder Water is a gem in the crown of English countryside. Soothing and serene in spring and summer, often brooding and majestic in the depths of winter and always a beautiful place to be. Nestled less than 2 miles eastwards of the huge dam is the hamlet of Stannersburn where The Pheasant Inn is the most relaxing of venues. Lovely accommodation and superb food make this excellent value. The staff are friendly, very helpful and show great pride in the place. It is a charming hotel and exactly suited to its wonderful setting. No wonder we return each year.

Missed opportunity?

bellytubby, Lockerbie, United Kingdom
Visited this charming pub on spec as we were travelling through the region. The bar was busy without being packed and a very hot summers day, this contrasted with the ridiculously long queues at the bigger and busier bar in the nearby Kielder Lodges. Found a table, food was ordered, arrived in a timely fashion, and consumed in an equally timely manner. All was good - fresh and tasty. The accompanying salad was rather unimaginative and dated - my tomato evoked distant memories of a Chinese restaurant circa 1982. Both my wife and I commented on the fact that 4 separate couples were turned away for lunch as this was served only until 2pm (the website actually states 2.30). The big hand had barely passed the hour! All 4 couples were then informed that evening meals started at 6pm. Were they supposed to hang around for a further 3 hours and 55-ish minutes?
