Fox & Pheasant Inn
Fox & Pheasant Inn
When was the last time you were in Armathwaite, near Carlisle? For me, it wasn’t long ago and it is somewhere that I visit a few times a year, and each time is like the first time.
A truly stunning wee village that sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty, AONB, which is popular with walkers who love nothing better than roaming and discovering the Eden Valley and all that it has to offer.
No respectable, traditional country Village is complete without a real village pub.
Armathwaite does not disappoint in that respect, having not one, but two great Country pubs to choose from.
The Fox and Pheasant at Armathwaite overlooks the beautiful, meandering River Eden, traditionally a Coaching Inn dating back to the 1800s, with its low beamed ceilings, roaring fire, great food and real ales, makes for the perfect pint and perfect get-away, especially for food lovers who want something a little different.
Serving up lunch and evening meals every day of the week, popular dishes include Slow roasted Belly Pork, Pheasant stuffed with Damsons and Wild Boar and the Wild Sea Bass are regular favourites.
Sunday Lunches are always a massive hit, offering two types of meat or half roast chicken makes booking essential.
If you are a lover of real ale, then do expect to enjoy the perfect pint, there is always a good range to choose from, including local ales from Hawkshead brewery.
Owner Steve said “The Fox and Pheasant is a popular destination for those who love Walking Fishing, Canoeing or Shooting. It’s a real country retreat, and as with most traditional country pubs we welcome your four-legged friend to join you on your next visit.”
Whether it’s simply good, traditional Country fayre you are after, served up by the well known and very popular chef, Neil Dodd, or a Cosy Romantic Winter Getaway with views overlooking the River Eden, then look no further and treat yourself to one night or two at The Fox and Pheasant Armathwaite.
Accommodation is available throughout November and December, except on Christmas Day.
Throughout December, you can choose from the Christmas Fayre Menu which will be available from Dec 1st until Dec 24th.
