The Hotel, although a little difficult to find was a truly wonderful experience and well worth the stay. Good food, real ales (including mulled wine)& a roaring log fire were all very much appreciated on cold spring evenings. The staff were friendly and the bedrooms rooms were very comfortable. The breakfast and evening meals were well presented and extremely filling, but delicious.too.

Some food poor
2 April 2015
The first night's meal the chicken pie was overcooked and dried out. The first morning the breakfasts were cool probably from being left in the kitchen too long.The second evenings meal, the fish was well undercooked and the batter soggy and pale. We complained and this was not charged on our bill. The kipper next morning appeared to have had an accident - in pieces and part missing! We waited in the breakfast room for 10 minutes before any staff appeared. There was also swearing heard from the kitchen on more thanone occassion.
The olde worldy atmosphere

We booked on the internet and didn't realize the hotel could actually accommodate dogs in outside lodge rooms. We would have loved to have taken our dog!
Gorgeous, comfortable and warm hotel. Lovely bedrooms.

Nothing. Could have been more tea/coffee in the room, but it comes if you ask, and this is being a bit picky

We stayed at The Pheasant Inn during the Christmas holiday period. We had an amazing experience overall - the staff were absolutely superb & went out of the way to make our stay comfortable. Cannot fault anything at all really - the breakfast was excellent & the chef even cooked some risotto (not on the menu) for lunch as we are vegetarian. There is an excellent walk to be had from right outside the hotel doorstep, climbing up to Sale Fell, which we thoroughly enjoyed. All in all, thoroughly recommend & we will definitely be planning a visit & stay again.

Restaurant and bistro food were excellent .

Sleep disturbed in Matterdale by noise from kitchen extractor but should probably have had more Hawkshead bitter and gone to bed later
Welcoming and friendly staff. Excellent food. Cosy atmosphere with log fires on wet days. The Hawkshead bitter was excellent.

Fire alarm went off twice early hours and there was no acknowledgement in the final bill that this had ruined our sleep. We had to congregate in the car park at 3.30am and no fire marshall was present.

My partner didn't enjoy his meal on our first night. The fish was 'more batter than fish'. When we pointed this out we only got an 'oh what a shame' from the server. BUT the food from then on was wonderful.We enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked another stay.
The attitude of the staff, really pleasant, but not in your face. The open fire and squashy chairs. The gardens, I can't wait to go back when the weather will be good enough to enjoy them.
