"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!

My wife and I were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary, have eaten at the Golden Pheasant several times and couldn’t think of a nicer place to share this occasion.
We arrived early and enjoyed a cocktail at the bar and were not rushed to our table. We were seated at a nice table in a room with a large burning log fire, setting the atmosphere and creating a warming ambience. I had mentioned our anniversary when I booked online and sitting on our table was a single long stem red rose for my wife.
The food was exceptional, the service outstanding and everything was brought out at the perfect intervals. To round out the occasion, my wife’s dessert was served with a special ‘Happy Anniversary’ message.
This was one of the best evenings we have had together.
Thank you to all at the Golden Pheasant.

My husband and I had a lovely meal at the Golden Pheasant Inn. The service was absolutely top notch and all of the food was delicious. I started with the onion soup which was full of melted cheese and bread and my husband had one of the seasonal specials which was a steak and ale chowder. The roasted duck and chicken breast were cooked perfectly and made for a special meal out. The fireplace was beautiful on this winter night. We will certainly be back!

The staff were wonderful. They knew this was a special occasion and they went above and beyond to make it special. The food was excellent. I had steak and my wife had seafood and everything was prepared perfectly with an excellent presentation. This is my fourth time eating there and it’s been superb every time. A perfect place for any occasion.

Most all weekends we go to dinner to a restaurant that is at least rated a 4 or higher with something usually a bit off. Which lends itself to understanding why their not a “5”.

The Golden Pheasant is truly a five. A lovely restaurant with great atmosphere, food and excellent service. For couples or a small group it’s a cozy up scale but casual dinner experience with a great country Inn like atmosphere you look for when dining in the area.

Would definitely go back again

Everything was wonderful, except when it came to the desert. It’s not such a big deal, but paid for a full portion of chocolate cake and what came out was literally only four forkfuls in total.They must have run out of chocolate cake so they layered strawberries top of the cake to make it appear size. A disappointing end to an otherwise lovely meal.

It has been a few years since we have eaten at the Golden Pheasant primarily because the menu is limited and doesn’t vary much from season to season or year to year. My husband and I decided to give it another chance. The ambiance is very nice, especially when the fireplace is lit. For an appetizer, I ordered a butterhead lettuce salad, but was disappointed as there wasn’t much lettuce and it was very overdressed. My husband had the escargot which was a good choice. I was really looking forward to the halibut entree (the reason we decided to come) and it was cooked nicely with a tasty lobster sauce. The carrots and sautéed mushrooms were a nice accompaniment however, sweet potato purée did not compliment the dish. My husband enjoyed the sweet potato gnocchi but felt that they were covered in too much pesto. Overall, the meal was good, but often it feels like the chef tries to do too much with each plate instead of letting the simple flavors of the main ingredient shine through.

Have been here for Sunday brunch along the canal, with other couples for Saturday dinner & with family. It is a local gem & worth the drive. Wait staff is very attentive. Ambiance is wonderful whether you are by the fire on a cold night or outside along the canal on a warm day. Cocktails are interesting & the food is excellent!

unfortunately, on our first visit to this renowned establishment this past weekend the kitchen staff took high quality ingredients and overcooked or overdressed them. the bread was stale and fry, as was the tapenade. my salad did not have pickeled beeters- it had beets soaked in pure vinegar the honey-mustard dressing seemed to contain neither honey, nor oil.

my husband said of his dish “it was not it as described on the menu.” somehow the salmon came with a strongly vinegar-based sauce that only hinted at the promised curry. and the burned mushrooms and rubbery potatoes were an unwelcome accompaniment to the salmon, which truly deserved better.

my black bean burger arrived black all right but it was charred instead of cooked. i sent it back and it came back exactly the same way and this time the bun was hard and cold. the first batch of fries arrived greasy and too salty but were remade and the second batch was fine.

we were afraid of what they would send out for dessert so we gave up, paid our bill and vowed to never go back again after we were charged full price for what our server admitted was a “sad plate” of food sent out by the kitchen staff.

We went to the Golden Pheasant for New Year's, and had another enjoyable occasion there. We both ordered the prix fixe menu, and, with exception of dessert, all of the options were outstanding. My wife ordered the creme brûlée and I had the chocolate mousse. Both were good, but not particularly impressive. The service, as usual, was top notch, and our waitress had a complete knowledge of all of the available dishes.
