Tasting menu

The White Pheasant is a modern foodie pub with simply decorated interior, log fires and plain wood tables, but chef-proprietor Calvin Holland's cooking sets it a cut above the average. The kitchen sources the best materials from local producers and has the technical nous to extract full-on flavours from it. Pork shoulder might provide the meat for a starter, served as a bonbon with burnt apple, cider sauce and pickled salad. Main course could see hake partnered with seared scallops, sweetcorn, potato dice and mushroom cream. Leave room for rhubarb Arctic roll and pistachio macaroon.
