Public house, probably originally a row of 3 houses. Late C18

over brick. Graduated greenslate roof; with stucco end chimney
2-storey, 5 bays, with lower rear 3-bay extensions on returns,
forming overall U-shape. 2 symmetrically-placed double plank
doors and patterned overlights in plain reveals. Sash windows
with glazing bars, that in centre is a canted oriel, all in
plain reveals. Modern fascia and sign over ground floor
windows. Projecting beam at right supports a carved wooden
pheasant. Similar doors and windows in returns and extensions.
INTERIOR: extensive C20 alterations. Asquith' Survey of 1853
does not show this as a pub, it appears on the 1865 OS map as
the Silloth Railway Inn (that railway was opened on 28 August
1856). It was called The Pheasant for the first time in the
1873 directory. Became a State Managed pub in 1916 and sold
out of state control in 1972. Removal of stucco in 1970s
revealed blocked earlier windows.
