See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Serving two Weetwood Beers and two guests, the Pheasant is a 300 year old half-timbered, sandstone inn, nestling on top of the Peckforton Hills. The lounge has the biggest log fire in Cheshire, while the restaurant was formerly the farmhouse kitchen and retains the old range. Pictures of Highland cattle, and rosettes from successful shows decorate the walls. Enjoy the superb views over the Cheshire Plain toward the Welsh hills. Set midway along the Sandstone Trail, in magnificent countryside, the Pheasant is ideal for walkers, and a leaflet detailing four circular walks from the pub has been specially commissioned. The castles of Beeston, Cholmondley and Peckforton are within easy reach, while other attractions include Oulton Park racing circuit six miles away, and Cheshire Candle Workshops close by. Twelve en-suite rooms are situated in an award-winning converted barn, with Bed & Breakfast available. The food is of such a high standard that the Pheasant is listed in CAMRA's prestige Good Pub Food Guide. Only eight miles from Chester, this is an excellent spot for visitors to Cheshire or North Wales.
