If ever there was a time to use the word ‘boutique’ in the same sentence with a country pub, then The Lion and Pheasant presents that opportunity.
The beams are still there as are the wooden floors and exposed stone but they have been scrubbed clean to become a polished backdrop to the contemporary pallet of colours and furniture, all offset by freshly painted white walls.
With more than a handful of cozy rooms, The Lion & Pheasant can afford to tempt a few hungry traveller to stay put by the roaring fire with yet another plate of delicious food and a pint. Pleasantly tired they’ll be able to retire to one of the minimalistic bedrooms spread across a terrace of 17th and 18th-century town houses.
