Had my birthday meal there recently with my father and the food was excellent and the decor delightful. We always enjoy our experience at the Golden Pheasant.

W Chamberlain - Manchester

Today we fancied a Sunday carvery and after reading the reviews decided to try the Golden Pheasant in Plumley. I am so glad we did. The pub/hotel itself has an array of charming dining and lounge furniture, with an equally charming interior to match. The tables and seating arrangement are arranged to offer privacy and space, with a light airy feel the pub and dining area allows you to relax in the surroundings.

The food itself was as it should be. The starters and desserts were fantastic with the carvery having some of the best meats i have tasted for a while. Big joints of meat carved as you like, thick, thin, well done to rare. Fantastic value for money and very generous.

Overall I cannot fault the dining experience for what we wanted, it fit the bill perfectly. We will be definitely going back there to stay for a night in one of the 4 poster bedrooms and on a cold winters night am already looking forward to some fantastic food and cosy into some of the relaxing chairs in front of the real life fires with a brandy or two.

If you are after some good food, in a charming relaxing environment then go here. I cannot recommended enough.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a great evening we had at the Golden Pheasant on Wednesday night for my Daughters 21st Birthday. The food, service and ambiance was first class. Look forward to our next visit.

Joanne Taylor, Timperley

My husband and I stayed here on Saturday night and were very impressed! The pub itself and room had plenty of character and lovely furniture dotted all around. Comfortable bedroom and fantastic breakfast too, could eat that every morning!

I would recommend this hotel to anybody wishing to stay in a comfortable, friendly and affordable hotel with bags of character and personality coupled with great service. Thank you very much for the great stay and will be back very soon to try the rest of your menu!

Lindsey Bowman

I visited the Golden Pheasant for Sunday Lunch for the first time in many years, it was before new ownership and would like to say how very much I enjoyed the ambience and the food, it is a credit to the management and staff.
We have the need more so for good local overnight accommodation for our visitors hence while I was in the pub one of your staff very kindly showed me a room.
When we next require accommodation for a business colleagues then I shall definitely be making a booking with The Golden Pheasant.

Long may your business success continue.

To the management and staff at The Golden Pheasant, we stayed at your hotel on Saturday 7th April, if you remember there were eight of us going to a wedding at Peover Golf Club? Would like to say we had a wonderful time, the service, food, the rooms, staff - everything made a perfect break. Considering there were eight of us you would have expected one of us to have some kind of complaint but on the contrary everyone was impressed so thank you for looking after us.

Once again thank you for a really great weekend.

Michael Seal

We had an excellent dinner on Tuesday, the food was first class, wines too, all the staff looked after us well and Christopher was an attentive host. Please pass on my thanks, again to him and the team.

Colin, Knutsford

Thank you for a great time last night, we had a fabulous 'Railway Dinner'. Excellent food and perfect hospitality, we will be back.

Thanks, Colin

Ray Bailey

Excellent location, recent lunchtime visit was first class. The menu choice was extensive and service was very good. Certainly worth a visit.

Vernon Smith

On behalf of the MG Octagon Car Club (South Manchester) many thanks to all your staff who contributed to the wonderful evening we all had on Tuesday 10th January 2012.
The room decoration etc, table arrangement and settings, food and service were all excellent. Thank you all very much.

Roger Lewis-Dale

Just a brief note to say how much all our party enjoyed our food,drinks and excellent service yesterday. It was as good as previous years and no doubt we will be back again next December for our Annual family get together. Delighted to report that everyone got home OK. Total return mileage for everyone was just over 1600!!!!! Many Thanks again and Best Wishes for the festive season to you all.

B & G

Can we say how much everyone enjoyed the afternoon. Couldn't have been any better and Graham and myself will remember it always. Thank you for making it a perfect day! Have a lovely Christmas and see you in the New Year! Best wishes, B & G x

Joan Clark, Bradnop W.I.

Thank you for yesterday we had a lovely meal, wish we could have stayed and had coffee on the settees, thank you once again!

Robert Crompton

Just a short note to say thank very much for an excellent meal that we had at your pub on Sunday 23rd October, and for being so accommodating and helpful. Especially allowing us to bring along our birthday cake, due to me not being totally organised, and for supplying the candles for the cake, which I forgot to bring on the day.

The carvery was excellent. Very tasty meat. Also very well kept and superb tasting beer. All the party enjoyed themselves, and had a good day thanks to you and your staff.

I would not hesitate in recommending the Golden Pheasant to any one, especially if they want good food, good beer and a lovely warm welcome and a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.

Once again a very big thank you to you all at The Golden Pheasant. (even if it has taken me over a week to send the email!)

Lyndon Hughes

Just wanted to thank you and your staff for making us feel so welcome and looking after us yesterday. Everyone commented that the food was very nice and the service was excellent.

Personally I could not have asked for more and would pass my personal appreciation to the staff who looked after us.

Trev Hoyne ,Marple

We visited on a very cold, wet Sunday afternoon in February 2011. We received a very warm welcome and shown to an area which had very comfortable chairs and a roaring log fire. After a short time we were shown to a well placed table. A waiter soon came and explained the menu.
We chose the 3 course carvery menu. The food was excellent, service could not have been better with staff choosing the right times to visit the table. Not arriving too soon leaving you sufficient time to digest each course. The whole experience was faultless. We shall be returning.

Roger and Sheila Lewis-Dale

Just a quick email to send our families appreciation for the excellent service and food we had for our annual family get together at The Golden Pheasant on 19th December. This is the fifth year we have made you our venue with travellers from Edinburgh, Burnley, Wiltshire, Cheshire and ourselves from Durham!

Roll on next year!!!!!!


We have dined at the Pheasant many times. However the carvery on Sunday 14th November surpassed our usual expectations. A wonderful selection fantastic value, would recommend 100%.

Mrs T

I dined with my husband on the evening of the 30th October, what a relaxing and romantic setting with the candles and ambience created. (in what I understand to be the Red Dining Room). The food was divine, service excellent and the real coal fire a perfect way to finish the evening.

P & G

Cold and Wet Sunday afternoon was made so much brighter following the Sunday Carvery at The Golden Pheasant. A delicious choice of courses which were all fresh and hot, even for a ‘fussy veggie’. It left us all with a smile and full tummies. We shall definitely be back.

Vale Royal Ladies

I am writing to say how much we enjoyed our lunch function today. The canapés served at the start were lovely and set the scene for the remainder of the meal. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and everyone was most complimentary about, well everything.

Joanine appleton

Dined here on Friday evening with my husband and children. The service was attentive and friendly and the children received a very warm welcome! The restaurant is beautifully decorated giving an air of opulence. The food was lovely, huge portions which meant, unfortunately, we didn't have room for dessert. Would absolutely recommend giving this place a try, would be ideal for a romantic meal for two!

Will, Knutsford

Fantastic location with many unusual artefacts and items! This is a typical country pub with great ales and food. I will certainly be returning with more friends to show off my latest find!

M & D

A visit from Dean Row WI (party of 11 on a cold snowy day) had an excellent welcome and a most enjoyable meal.Many thanks for your hospitality!

Greg - Fiji

Chris has produced a wonderful establishment that captures the essence of the English country pub better than any I know of.
An excellent menu backed by a high class chef, eaten in comfort and washed down with fine wine or real ale. Is there anything better?
As an occasional visitor to the UK now, there is nowhere I would rather spend my time.

Diane Bond

My children and grandchildren (babies) and myself had Sunday roast here at tea time. Food was excellent and waiter was very attentive and pleasant. This is an extremely comfortable and inviting pub and the decor is first class. Altogether a memorable experience and I shall certainly be going back again.

Andrew Richards

I have lived within 10 miles of the Golden Pheasant and passed it routinely on my daily commute for nearly 20 yrs.It was never a great night out for a meal....it is now though!

Excellent menu,well cooked with fresh decor and very professional staff combine to make this a preferred location.

John P (from Macclesfield)

Great food. Good Beer & Wine. Excellent Staff and attentive Management.
The smallest detail is viewed as important and the management act quickly to put right anything that is not correct.
The transformation of the Public areas is excellent and this place is recommended very highly.

Allan Binks, Plumley

This pub has changed beyond all recognition since the recent takeover by Chris and Tim. The food is terrific but more importantly the pub itself has been transformed from a dour place to have a drink to one which is now friendly and welcoming.

kath, runcorn

I visited the Golden Pheasant on my mum's recommendation and was blown away by the place. The furniture and floors are stunning and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The staff were brilliant from the gentleman that served us at the bar to the one who brought our food. They were very genuine, had great manners and had very good customer care. The food was excellent and I would recommend anyone to take a trip out there to experience it. I will definately be going again. Lovely people, lovely setting, lovely location.

k.moris taimside
