"Exquisite" is the word to describe this experience - John V.R. Bull, Philadelphia Inquirer.
Perfect for a relaxed country meal, a weekend getaway or a glass of wine by the fire or on our outdoor terrace, it is hard to imagine a more picturesque setting than the Golden Pheasant Inn. The menu offers fresh, seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, The wine list offers over 160 selections by the bottle and 20 by the glass. Located between the Delaware River and Canal in a historic fieldstone inn, we are one hour and fifteen minutes from New York City or Philadelphia, and only 20 minutes north of New Hope, PA. The inn has been family owned and operated for over 27 years. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the beauty of Bucks County!

    I took my husband to Golden Pheasant Inn for his b-day. I asked the staff to reserve us a romantic table. The staff went over and beyond by not only giving us the coziest table but they also decorated the table with a candle, flowers, and Hershey kisses that are wrapped in cute, little boxes, wrapped with white ribbons. The service was excellent! The food was great, except that my husband's Frenched chicken was wasn't as hot as it should have been. Other than that, everything was what I asked for and more... I highly recommend this place to any couple who is looking for a romantic, candlelit dinner.

    I liked the restaurant, but the Inn was really special. The rooms were all redone 2 years ago and they did a great job. The restaurant is a little large and lacks the atmosphere you expect at an Inn. That said, the food was great. Our waitress was over taxed, so the service was off, but the food made up for that.

    This is an exceptional restaurant - a Gem!! Sustainably harvested, organic, non-GMO veges/fruits; farm raised (no hormones, cages, cruelty) meat so the ahisma is fabulous here. Everything's made in house, to order. Leave room for dessert. Not cheap, but worth every bite - absolutely delicious. Service was informed & delightful. Ambiance relaxing & scenic, between river & canal. We will return - again & again. New favorite!

    This is our second vidit to the GP and I must say the food was tasty. You certainly cannot beat the setting. My only grumble is the cost if a glass of wine (up to $25). You might want to explore buying a bottle and take the leftovers home! BTW - the BBQ Pork Shank yummy!

    We shared crab cakes for an appetizer and I had the scallops, my wife had roast duck for entrees. I've never seen such small portions anywhere in my life. I had (3) small scallops with tiny baby carrots and no starch served with it. The duck portion couldn't have been more than 2 oz tops. They certainly made a profit on us. Passed on $10.00 desserts as who knows the what that portion may have been. There was more food on the appetizer than the entrees. Will never go back there.

    The GPI is good considering it's location. The food is expensive relative to the portion sizes. And I think there is an opportunity to improve the food flavors, particularly with the fish offerings. The service is amateur and slow but well intentioned. The wine list is nice and the ambiance is quaint. The noise level is quite energetic, especially for anyone with hearing issues or that wears a hearing aid. I would recommend it to a friend if they were going to be in the area.

    Always a wonderful experience here.....excellent service by Yolanda, an extensive wine list and exceptional "farm to table" food. The Inn and candlelit ambiance are absolutely lovely. Highly recommend for a special occasion. They also have outdoor seating, a patio on the canal. We ate inside with a river view but the outdoor seating looked nice as well.

    This place is something special. First, if you are not from the area, the ride up the river is absolutely beautiful. The Inn is very nice. We had dinner for 6 outside. The outdoor seating is right on the tow path - but was private and quiet. They had a gentle jazz band playing that night - but still conducive to having a nice conversation with friends. Food was excellent. A bit pricey overall, but for a special night out - it was perfect.

    Where to start: Table by a window looking out on the Delaware, very comfortable seating, charming old stone building, Maria our server, and the very satisfying food. All top notch. Small things: food coming to the table hot and ready to eat, prepared in new and different ways without being fussy, fresh fish cooked perfectly to our taste (branzino for my wife---halibut for me), excellent cheese selection for dessert. My wife and I have lived in the area for 25 years and had not gone here. Now I doubt we'll wait 25 days to return!

    My wife and I went there for a quiet dinner to celebrate her birthday. Thought the ambience would be better than it was , not as cozy as I thought it would be indoors - I think the Black Bass Hotel is better, for example. I ordered a wine that was not in stock and then had to taste a couple of alternatives that weren't to my liking. My onion soup was fantastic and my scallops were very good. My wife's salad was also very good but the salmon was overdone. Service was a bit uneven - ie., no attention for long periods and then rapid fire at others. Probably would go back again but not one where there is a big urge any time soon. In summary, enough things didn't go as expected so the best we would rate the place is good.

    I could not have asked for a better brunch. The field green salad of local organic greens and cheese and the charcuterie plate of smoked pork, pheasant pate, duck mousse and some other things from area farms were perfect for a summer afternoon. Their sources from New Jersey and Pennsylvanian farms are impeccable. I should also add how good the wine list is; although, I chose a couple of pints of ale from 2 area breweries. While I find dining here great in every season, the variety and quality of fresh foods for summer are outstanding.

    The Golden Pheasant has been beautifully remodeled. Elegant and romantic. The food, with an emphasis on local, seasonal items is imaginative, attractively presented and delicious. The Duck turrine and tomato salad appetizers were superb and enough for a whole meal. Our group had halibutt, scallops and steak. All excellent. Of the desserts, the ice cream was the least satisfying. I'd try sweetpeaicecream.com. That said, we can't wait to return!

    We were a group of six for dinner on a Thursday night. We had requested sitting outside and they delivered. We had a table on the back terrace overlooking the canal on a beautiful summer evening. Our server was terrific- unfortunately I can't remember her name. Two in our group ordered from the tavern menu (salads, sandwiches and burgers), but the rest of us chose from the dinner menu. All of us were highly satisfied with our meals. An enjoyable evening in wonderful surroundings with good food and great friends!

    We were so disappointed with our evening at the Golden Pheasant Inn. The food was just average. The duck was served on top of udon noodles and cimci. I realized it would not be a traditional duck dish, but medium duck turned to well done duck in an instant from the bowl of broth. Duck skin should be crispy and this was not. The duck was tender and flavorful but what a sin to do this to duck. Service was mediocre at best. It took 4 trys to get the wine we ordered, no soup spoon, had to ask for the coffee we ordered, etc. You get the picture. I have never heard more apologies for poor service. Don't apologize fix it.

    We have lived in Bucks County for 32 years and now have a favorite number 1 spot! There are so many wonderful restaurants to choose from here, that until now we did not have one that had stood the "test of time" and remained at the top of the list as our favorite spot. The service was terrific, the food delicious, the ambiance really fresh and lovely, and the wine list truly the best in the area ... on par with any major city's finest restaurants. Can't wait to go back. Loved the local ties to wonderful foods from our area, too. Highly recommend the Golden Pheasant!

    To celebrate a friend's birthday, we went to Golden Pheasant. He had onion soup, braised lamb shank and an apple-based cake for dessert. I started with a salad and had the scallop entre. We tasted one another's food and concluded that both of us were very lucky indeed. His soup was full of onions and cheese and the lamb shank was tender with natural juices. My salad featured pickled fiddle leaf ferns (a first for me) over a spring mix with wonderful tender leaves and a delicate dressing. The scallops were moist and had a great sauce with just a hint of lemon. The staff was very professional in explaining the local sources for the ingredients in our dishes. A totally wonderful experience!

    We haven't been to Golden Pheasant in years and were looking forward to a nice meal. We shared a grilled Spanish Octopus with sea beans salad. The octopus was really undercooked, to the point of being inedible. We're Greek, so we know how octopus should be cooked. Our servant recommended it as the best on the menu. I would say not. I had the prix fixe which included a grilled wild red snapper - one of my favorite fish. The portion was really small, and the fish was very bland. It did not taste like any other red snapper I've ever had. All in all, a disappointing meal. There was a wedding that day -- maybe the kitchen was overwhelmed, but we were underwhelmed.

    The setting to dine at The Golden Pheasant is just so peaceful, it is a lovely place to eat. Sitting outside along the canal is great- it doesn't get better than this! The menu offers a lot of choices from Tavern food to a fine dining menu. Overall though, the food is good but needs more "oomph".The mussels needed garlic and the red sauce was bland without it. The green acres salad was drenched in balsamic vinegar dressing which took away from the delicate ingredients. A simple lemon and olive oil would compliment it better, especially with how fragile the greens are. The "whale" soft shell crab was just a regular generic sized crab and it too was bland without garlic. With a few changes in seasoning, this place could really excel.
