For a less formal occasion or an impromptu lunch, the Bistro at The Pheasant uses the same expertise to select the best Cumbrian produce and create something special for every guest.
Other Lake District hotels may offer bar food or a restaurant but the Bistro at The Pheasant Bassenthwaite is something in between. Combining the best of both worlds, the menu includes things like Seafood Gratin, a range of open sandwiches and salads, 8oz Sirloin Steak and Mezze Platter .
Guests enjoy the best Cumbrian meat and game and the winter menu also includes gluten-free and vegetarian options such as Cheddar Cheese and Spinach Soufle (v), Polenta & Smoked Cheddar Fries (v), Mussels (gf), Venison (gf) and Grilled Goats Cheese, Apple Chutney Salad (gf)(v).
With views out on to the gardens with the woods and fells beyond, the Bistro appears to extend outdoors in summer. But the atmosphere throughout the year reflects an informality and a relaxed approach to good food in a lovely setting that is typical of The Pheasant's commitment to high standards and a friendly welcome.
The Bistro is open for lunches (from 12pm til 2:30pm), including Sunday Lunch, and evening meals (from 6pm til 9pm) every day of the week. Our early bird with children's menus is available from 6-7pm.
