"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.

We just found this restaurant. It's north of New Hope PA. Great ride from Princeton area especially in Fall. The food is French/American, very fresh, tasty, presentation was great too. Staff knowledgeable, friendly but not imposing. The environment inside is spectacular, newly renovated and top quality as with everything else we experienced. And, they have a great wine list and a wood burning fireplace.

I wanted to give my boyfriend an experience and we got one. We had champagne, water and coffee for brunch and our glasses and cups were never empty. The maple butternut squash soup was an amazing experience all in it's own. The service, presentation, food quality, atmosphere, and scenic views of both the river and foliage over the hiking path behind the inn were well worth the price.

Food was good, the flavors weren't as bold as the menu dictated. More of a rustic style. Waitress actually listed off the soups and said the wild mushroom soup "has pieces of mushroom in it" that was only description given. Bone marrow was the highlight of our dinner. Probably great to go to around the holidays(architecture and location of the inn).

How very disappointed we were. We brought friends there who had never been to the Golden Pheasant. The service was slow and the food was ice cold,all of them. My husband has said he will never go back. Horrible experience!!!

It's been eleven years since we were here last, but it is still a wonderful place to spend the evening along the Delaware. The food was excellent, as was the service and the atmosphere. One does pay for this, of course, but that was expected. It was nice that it was quiet enough to have a conversation with friends, without having to strain. It would have been nice to eat outside by the canal, but given the humidity, the air conditioned dining room was the way to go this night. I can think of at least one other inn along the Delaware that I prefer, as it has a deck along the river instead of the canal, but it is nice to have some variety too.

Dinner at the Golden Pheasant was Outstanding. From the time we arrived until we left everything about the experience was wonderful. From our server Maria, who was very well versed in the menu and able to offer excellent suggestions to the phenomenal tasty, well prepared and presented meal served was great. We go to dinner four times a year with our good friends and always pick a different, upscale Dining Venue. We have done this for over 30 years. The Golden Pheasant is one of the best we have ever been too.

This is a wonderful establishment with a beautiful location along the canal. The food is always good whether you have the brunch or select off the bar menu. The staff is always attentive and polite, I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversry. We had passed this restaurant many times and loved the location. We were impressed with everything about this restaurant. The food was amazing as well as the service. We can not wait to go back. I highly recommend this place.

The ambience and service were outstanding. The first 2 wine selections were not in stock. The "pick 3" cheese plate appetizer was quite tasty and presented very nicely. The lamb shank was cooked to perfection, but the pork chop was a bit tough and not particularly tasty. There's a nice, cozy, and well-stocked bar that's perfect for drinks before and after.

Maria, our server, was great, and our meal was as good as I have ever had. This was our 5th visit to GPI, and they exceeded their already lofty performance levels. While the every day menu is excellent, try the specials. These folks take full advantage of the local, healthy bounty, and the chef's seasonal/daily specials are very special. I enjoyed a sushi-grade tuna appetizer; a salad of tangy greens, heirloom tomatoes, fresh peaches, watermelon & goat cheese; and a made to order seafood stew. All were extraordinary when paired with an excellent French white burgundy from their award winning cellar.
This place truly is a local treasure and remains our favorite.

I took my neighbor to the Pheasant because she had never been there. Her jaw dropped over the beauty of the location on the Delaware. She couldn't say enough about the location. She was really impressed with the entree that she ordered and of course the service. Great job Golden Pheasant

We have dined many times in the past at Golden Pheasant Inn, and we haven't been here in a few years. This experience we felt was only average. The location is lovely, the decor is beautiful, and the service is okay. The food was average to below average. We had the chicken, and it was completely dried out, and the vegetables were not crisp. The appetizers and salad were borderline average to good, but I expected more based on our past history. The desserts were worthy of the "foodie" label.
The service staff delivered our starters and dinner almost at the same time, so there was no time to enjoy either course. The dessert came very swiftly, and they cleared the dessert before we were even finished. They didn't even ask if we were done, they just grabbed the plates. I am not sure why we were rushed, as there was not a backlog of people and I felt that for the price point, the service should be consummate.
Overall, I don't believe we will be heading back to the Golden Pheasant.

This was at least my 12th visit to the Golden Pheasant since their major renovations took place. It has become our go to favorite for a any occasion or no occasion at all. From the moment you arrive, you are treated with respect and courtesy. The wait staff is superb, our current favorite waitress is Hannah. ( they are all terrific) The food as always, was excellently prepared, beautifully presented. This visit was for their Father's day Brunch. Our first brunch there. An incredible value for 35.00; you receive a three course meal, including a glass of champagne. Multiple selections with many specials. I had recommended this wonderful restaurant to some skeptical friends of mine, who travel all over the world for food and wine. They returned delighted and plan to go again. Try it, you won't be disappointed. And, they have a very attractive bar area with tables, where they offer their Tavern Menu, which by the way, is available during the week in the main dining rooms.

Stuff of the restaurant called us several time to make sure we will be there and warned us ahead of time of the road construction . Service stuff are very friendly and helpful. The same cannot be said about the food, quality wise, not so great, especially considering the price. But we did enjoy the scenery, beautiful location right by the river.

Absolutely great place. We had a drink in the bar, then sat outside by the canal. Just gorgeous. The food was spectacular. Maybe the best burger in the area (there is a bar menu and a dining room menu with higher end entrees as well). Just a perfect experience all the way around.

Recently enjoyed a delectable dinner on the canal front patio, beginning with a creative French Blonde martini. The seasonal menu was varied and featured locally sourced items carefully prepared as not to mask the fresh favors. We cleaned our plates! The honey lavender ice cream from Ottsville was the piece de resistance. We will be back.

Terrible, slow service and very under-whelmingly, mediocre food. I was embarrassed to bring friends to The Golden Pheasant for an anniversary and birthday celebration! What a shame that such a beautiful place does not have the food to go along with the facade! What an utter disappointment it was! The Golden Pheasant is crossed off my list...

It's hard to find a restaurant in Bucks County that has consistently fantastic food, consistently interesting and different specials, and consistently better than anything we could cook at home. Not just another touristy restaurant ...
Food was amazing, scallops were fabulous!!
The menu items were great. Our table ordered the grilled romaine and scallops, my mom was the only one who ordered something different. She had the raviolis. Her food was barely warm when it arrived. I waited very long for my second glass of wine, and had to ask again. I also requested a menu to browse because I had changed my mind and wanted to order an appetizer, and it never came. I had to request it again. Overall the food was really good but the service was lacking. It wasn't that busy at all. We were there for my birthday and had actually changed our reservation from another restaurant to this one. A little disappointing but like I said, the dishes were great. Service needs to be better at a restaurant such as this one.
Great place on Rout 32
The Golden Pheasant has been remodeled and the "sun room" that we sat in was beautiful and had river views from just about every seat. The back porch also looked lovely, but I had some concerns about mosquitoes, so take repellent just in case. Dining room was very pleasant as well.
We ate from the Tavern menu available in all areas of the restaurant, but you need to ask. (Note: it is not available on Saturday night.) The standard menu look very good as well, but we were just not in the mood for such a formal dinner that evening. The Tavern menu was outstanding. Every item on the menu was something I would have been happy to try. We both had creative salads that were delicious. I had a burger and it was one of the best ever. And my friend had Turkey Thanksgiving sandwich that was very tasty as well. We both wanted desert, but were too full. Next time. Great experience and will be back.
