Bronze Award in the “Taste of England” category in the Welcome to Yorkshire White Rose Awards 2019.

Judge’s testimonial:

We had a very enjoyable visit to the Pheasant.  There was a good choice of menus on offer. Our food  was excellent, beautifully presented with a great balance of textures and flavours. The Pheasant is a beautiful country house hotel set in an idyllic setting. The view from the terrace overlooking the duck pond was gorgeous. From our arrival to our departure we were well looked after by most of the staff. We had an engaging chat with the owner who spoke with passion and enthusiasm about her business.

White Rose Awards 2017
Best Restaurant Category
“The judges felt the Pheasant Hotel simply ‘had it all’ – saying they had watched it evolve into a real ‘class act’, offering excellent food and fantastic service. They say the team at the Pheasant do what they do exceptionally well, with evident pride and passion. And those fortunate enough to visit are treated as valued guests and not just customers. What a great winner!”


Yorkshire Post, February 2017
The Pheasant continues to grow and mature and is now confident in its direction under the careful watch of the hugely talented Peter Neville. My admiration of the Pheasant, however, is not just for the food but for the whole team and the terrific job they do, and it is no surprise then that they were awarded Best
Small Hotel in Yorkshire. Well deserved.
