Today, however, the recently refurbished pub shelters a more contemporary clientele with an eleven en-suite guest rooms offer and prides itself on an “adventurous” drinks menu and modern British cooking.

Run by Jack Greenall since January 2016, the Pheasant landing in the Top 50 Gastropubs list comes as no surprise, after all, Jack’s dad Johnny and his wife Laura manage peak district pub the Duncombe Arms also making its debut this year – albeit seven places higher in the standings.

However, far from getting in a flap over family rivalry, Greenall and the Pheasant boast a highly affordable menu rooted in classic modern British cooking and underpinned by the notion of bringing together the best ingredients, simply and deliciously.

Far from winging it, the pub’s regularly changing menu showcases the finest meat, fish and artisan products from around the country, according to its website, while its diverse daily specials put local and seasonal ingredients centre stage.
