Overview

This historic 17thC inn is run with an instinctive understanding of its traditions. The stone walls hold old photos of the community; from colliery to smithy, a vital record of its past. The bars are wonderful: brass beer taps glow, anything wooden has been polished to perfection and the clock above the fire keeps perfect time.

The house ales are expertly kept - Timothy Taylors, and local beers from Wylam Brewery. Robin cooks with relish nothing too fancy but more than enough to keep a smile on your face: fresh fish simply cooked, game and mushroom pie and slow roasted Northumberland Lamb. As for Sunday Lunch The Observer readers voted it one of the best in the North.

Bedrooms in the purpose-built annexe and the old hay barn are simple and tidy, not grand but cosy, and you'll get a piping hot breakfast the next morning - accompanied maybe by a view of the sheepdogs bringing the herd in for shearing. This is the glorious Northumberland National Park - no traffic jams, no rush and don't miss the sculpture at Kielder. Kielder Water is the largest man made lake in Europe and has the least light polluted skies.

Try everything from sailing to golfing, nature safaris to working forest visits. Visit the new Observatory, or further a field Northumberland's top tourist attactions: Alnwick Castle and Gardens, Hadrian's Wall and Forts plus countless castles, rolling countryside and miles of rugged coastline. Then hire bikes and cycle round the lake, or saddle up a pony and take to the hills. close to Kielder Water. Fishing, riding and all water sports are nearby, as are the Scottish Borders and Hadrian's Wall.

great country pub


c__h2008-12, Cambridge, United Kingdom
A warm welcome, considerate hosts, good sound pub cooking, cosy atmosphere. We had the family room with bunk, not huge amounts of space, but it had all we needed with comfortable bed with immaculate bed linen, tea tray with biscuits, tv, storage, shower room. The pub is in a hamlet of houses about 3 miles from Leaplish park (best for red squirrel spotting) and with kielder visitor centre further up the road. The Kielder dam is very close with walks on both sides of it. You can drive over the top of the dam and there are walks on the far bank of the lake. Hadrians wall nearby and new visitor centre being built. The overall setting of the pheasant is very peaceful apart from the odd logging lorry, we went in february half term, and it was very quiet. There is an electric car charging point in the pub car park.

Pre-Star Gazing Dinner


zephaniep, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Lovely Northumbrian comfort food. Brioche Marmalade Bread and Butter pudding was a delight! 😋 Only 15 minutes away from the Kielder Observatory makes it the perfect location for a pre-stargazing dinner 😊

The Pheasant Inn replied: Thank you for leaving us your review.great to hear you enjoyed your pre-Observatory stop off. Some really good nights recently but it can be cold and a hearty dinner is essential. Thanks again.

Good food, friendly staff


Mr S, York, United Kingdom
Managed to get in for some much needed tea with the family. The staff were pleasant and welcoming, and a new member (Italian i think) was honest enough to say he was learning the ropes so needed some help. That was fine by me and i was glad to assist where i could. The menu was good, not as broad with game as i was expecting with a name like The Pheasant, however we all found something - many of which were served in adults or children's portions. The food was piping hot (yay!) and served with a lovely fresh salad. Add in two pints of Timothy Taylors - i was a happy, and full, person.

The Pheasant Inn replied: Many thanks for your review, delighted you enjoyed your meal. The game season comes to an end for us early February so prior to that you would expect to see Pheasant,Partridge and Game Pie. We move on to some lighter choices with perhaps some Duck still in evidence. Timothy Taylors Landlord is our house bitter and never lets us down. Thanks again.

Perfect location


KatherineH655, United Kingdom
We stayed for two nights as we were visting Kielder Observatory. The rooms are in an adjacent building/annex to the main pub, which is great when you roll in at 0230 am after a dark skies event at the observatory. The room was impeccably clean, lovely thick bathroom tiles, toiletries and coffee/tea. The staff are lovely and very friendly, we were made to feel most welcome and this made the stay pleasurable. it's a great location and the scenery is breathtaking. We would definitely stay again on our next trip to Northumberland National Park.

The Pheasant Inn replied: Many thanks for your review, delighted you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again.

First class


Alansan,
After a lovely walk with the dogs at Kielder Forest we called into The Pheasant Inn, we received a very warm and friendly greeting and despite not having pre booked were offered a delightful table, the pub like the staff were absolutely charming, the choice and variety of food was good and the prices very reasonable. We both chose the lamb which was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment, it is well worth a visit.

The Pheasant Inn replied: Many thanks for taking time to leave us your comments, these are important to us and much appreciated. Thank you again
