Food is what The Pheasant do best - and we're not the only ones that think so, the 2014 Michelin Guide named them with the 'Top 500 Restaurants in Great Britain and Ireland'. You can dig into top-notch English grub here with dishes such as pan fried duck breast from Gressingham with smoked marmalade and beetroot cooked in tempura batter. All homemade pies are double-baked in the oven and include scrummy options such as chicken, leek and mushroom in a tarragon and white wine sauce. Wake up to gorgeous breakfast choices such as fresh fruit and yoghurt with honey produced by the hotel's own bees. You could also have a full English breakfast with black pudding or home smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
