After a long, traffic jammed journey my partner and I arrived travel weary and hungry in Carlisle on a Friday night. It was too late for a pub meal so we went to the Golden Pheasant. We were greeted by a very friendly Chinese lady and the service was very quick, pleasant and efficient but there the good news ended.... More

I've always been a great fan of the golden pheasant and have ate here regularly up until yesterday. I ordered I take away and when it had arrived, I noticed a meal was missing.

I have had eat in and take away meals from here. The food is first rate, and the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. The lady who runs the restaurant is a real character. They deliver as well, but not on Mondays unless it is a bank holiday. I would reccomend them to anyone. They are family friendly.

Used to be lovely food but not what it used to be. The decor has gone from dated to dingy, the lager is undrinkable and the food isn't as good as it used to be.
