Restaurant & bar
Well established on Shropshire's culinary pub map, The
Pheasant's menu works with the seasons, successfully combining pub
classics with more inventive specials.
Expect accomplished cooking and some great flavours from
chef-patron Mark Harris, who makes sound use of the top-notch local
produce on the doorstep, notably potatoes, lamb and pork from
nearby farms, alongside game from nearby shoots and locally reared
venison. Fish is delivered daily from Cornwall.
Tuck into the likes of pork and black pudding wellington with
black garlic aioli and red wine jus, seared haunch of Cleobury
fallow deer with braised red cabbage, parsnip puree and red wine
glaze, or battered haddock with hand-cut chips and mushy fees. A
stroll up Brown Clee Hill will set you up for dinner.
The Pheasant is a true rural free house and
fully taps into the thriving local micro-brewery scene, championing
brews from Wye Valley, Hop & Stagger, Salopian, Ludlow Brewery
Company or perhaps Town Crier from Hobsons Brewery. The carefully
selected list of wines comes from Bibendum, with a growing
selection of 'goodies' from other selected local and national
merchants; 13 by the glass.
