"We stayed 2 nights in the Pheasant Inn in June. We regretted we couldn’t stay longer. My husband and I had a lovely room (plenty of space; roomy bathroom) which gave on to a little courtyard. A friend accompanying us had an equally nice room with a great view. Despite the fact that his room was on the side facing the (small) road, he said it was incredibly quiet (very little traffic on the road, in particular during the night). The staff were efficient and extremely friendly.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful. There is a lot to see - not just visiting Hadrian’s Wall! Should we ever make another visit to Northumbria, we would definitely hope to stay at the Pheasant Inn again."

Reviews...

"A really super little inn, the kind you hope to chance upon It is not grand, not scruffy, just right. The Kershaws run it with huge passion and an instinctive understanding of its traditions."

"Delightful country inn. Mr Kershaw and his family could not have been more friendly and courteous, our room was spotlessly clean, the food truly delicious - we look forward to a return. A real pub, very good food, friendly and helpful staff."
- Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay 

“The Kershaws' cooking is fresh, generous and flavoursome, producing wholesome traditional English fare."
- The Pub Guide

"The Pheasant Inn, Stannersburn has everything the tourist could want. Firstly it's in deepest Northumberland, overlooking rolling fields and woods. Virginia creeper hugs the stone exterior and inside there's a full range of gleaming copper kettles, burnished horse brasses and decorative farming epherma. A log fire in winter ticks the final box."
- The Journal

"This old farmhouse has two cosy lounge bars with stone walls, original beams, and open fires where visitors can tuck into a tasty dinner and real ale. Traditional feel with community photos adorning the walls dating back over 100 years."
- The Guardian, The top 100 attractions in Northumberland, Best Pub
