Hi, I'm Angela. In this blog, we hope to share the highlights of running a Northumberland country inn and introduce you to some of the people we are lucky enough to meet along the way.
Here at The Pheasant Inn Kielder we believe it’s never too early to mention the Christmas word, and we’re pleased to say we have just put the finishing touches to our special Christmas menu, available on a pre-booked basis from 28th November to 20th December.
Robin has put together a mouth-watering three course set menu which as well as including traditional juicy turkey with all the seasonal trimmings also features our famous slow roasted Northumbrian lamb with a rosemary and redcurrant jus, or steamed fillets of plaice filled with prawns served with a lemon and parsley sauce, or a vegetarian option of baked aubergine stuffed with roasted vegetables, feta cheese and walnuts.
On the starters menu we are offering home-made chicken liver parfait with apple and ginger chutney, mildly spiced parsnip soup or twice baked Northumberland cheese soufflé that I can promise you will just melt in the mouth.
Diners who have room to squeeze down a dessert can choose from traditional Christmas pudding and brandy sauce, warm chocolate cake served with cream or Beckleberry’s clotted cream ice cream, or an absolutely delicious panna cotta with caramelised oranges and Cointreau – pudding heaven.
The Christmas bar will as usual be featuring our expertly-kept real ales, fine wines, a 50-strong range of fine malt whiskies and eight different types of gin, to tempt our diners to linger by the open fires until long after sensible people are in bed. Speaking of which, with eight very comfortable ensuite rooms we can accommodate up to 18 people overnight, which means no one has to drive.
The three course menu is priced at a very reasonable £22.50 and includes coffee and after dinner mints.
If this has got your mouth watering and you’re looking for a relaxing Christmas evening away with a group of family or friends, give us a call to check availability. Christmas is the season of goodwill and hospitality, and you won’t find a warmer Northumbrian welcome than our great team offers at The Pheasant – come and see us soon.
