Goat Cheese Parfait

We are absolutely delighted to share the news that our fine dining Fell Restaurant has scooped two coveted AA Rosettes.

Head Chef Jonathon Bell only took up his position at The Pheasant at the start of the year and to be awarded two rosettes and after just ten weeks in post is truly fantastic. We are very proud of the excellent food Jonathon produces each day and really pleased to see The Pheasant recognised for all the hard work and effort we put in to preparing and serving exceptional Cumbrian food.
