The restaurant is actually made up of two separate rooms - The Fell Restaurant and The Bistro. Both share the same menu, but the former includes a 'cover charge' of £2.50 for 'relaxed ambiance', views and home-made bread. We opted for The Bistro.
The scotch eggs were a great start, with a lovely soft yolk and a crispy outside. The ketchup was home-made and had a bit of mustard in it to give it a bit of a kick - something a bit different.

While there were a few things we would have preferred differently, we nonetheless had a positive experience at The Pheasant. Its modern feel (despite it being in a very old building), attentive and friendly staff, and proximity to Bassenthwaite Lake will appeal to the many visitors around there.
