In 1939 the owner advertised the hotel as "good accommodation for families, commercial genetlemen & cyclists with good stabling and motor garage." Seventy years on, the privately owned Golden Pheasant still offers the same friendly welcome and efficient service but to a global community. Here we have a passion for creating good food - really good food. We take the time and effort to make unique local, regional & international meals using classic recipes and adding our own sense of Cotswold flavour and charm. The chef can almost guarantee them to be exclusive to us. Meats & game are of the very highest quality, wherever possible from local sources or high reputation. Vegetables and fruit are handpicked to our exacting standards. Herbs are from local gardens as the chef will settle for nothing less than the best. Accompanying the seasonal menu, we offer an exciting and varied specials board that encompasses the essence of the Cotswold and of the town. Local ham hocks and Trout feature along with game pots that are sure to curb your hunger.
