Late evening and very busy with both drinkers and diners. We managed to find a free table by the window. Disappointing beer range here tonight.

Mid evening and fairly busy by the bar, we had our pick of tables so opted for one by a welcome open window on a warm sunny evening. Since last year's refurb Marston's seem to have given up on offering customers a wider choice of beers.

Mid evening and fairly busy with drinkers and diners, a fair amount of tables reserved for later groups. The exciting beer range tonight caught me by surprise I must admit.

Pleasant Pheasant mid week evening visit, fairly quiet as expected with a few, including us, dining. I haven't seen the full beer range or new ones on offer for a while now.

According to local publicity there should have been no buses between Willesborough and here today so when one turned up I decided to catch it and come here. Fairly busy as usual, exceptionally friendly bar staff made this a worthwhile visit. I took advantage of the £4.99 steak and chips again. I did not make a note of all the ales on sale but there was a fair selection from the Marstons range.
