Location
  • 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.
